Happy Second Anniversary

On Friday, September 5, Serenity Knits celebrated its second anniversary. Thank you to all of our wonderful customers and friends who have made it possible. Beth and I have enjoyed the hundreds of knitters who have visited the store since we first opened. You give us so much satisfaction and excitement when we see your skeins and balls of yarn become beautiful knitted projects. It is also rewarding to see the knitting and crochet abilities of our students develop from week to week.

To celebrate, there were the traditional party goodies including cake. Knitters need plenty of nourishment in order to keep the creativity flowing and sweets (especially chocolate) seem to be some of the best sources of energy.

Our neighbours, Tina and Francine from Blooming Wellies brought us a beautiful floral arrangement for the festivities. They always amaze us with their magnificent blooms so perfectly presented.
We appreciated the many best wishes from our guests, including Panda. She seemed a little more interested in the sheep than the yarn, but was happy to receive her chewy stick treat.

There were samples of projects for our many fall knitting classes. Gabriela has developed a new class for entrelac combined with lace. The two techniques blend together beautifully.
Several signed up for our special October 9 lecture with world renowned designer Kaffe Fassett and the 6 hour workshop with colour knitting expert Brandon Mably (October 10).

Our third year begins Monday as we unpack all the boxes of recent arrivals of our new fall yarns. Beth and I couldn't be happier!
