Aha, I have worked out the mail problem. Everything is cool. Now I can receive bills again. Woo Hoo?? The verdict is still out on that one, but I digress.

I am still working on the new hours. There are suggestions out there for more evening hours. I am for it, being an evening person anyway that would be great. I am thinking ....... staying open until 8PM on Monday, Thursday and Friday for the rest of the summer. So fellow knitters, join us for a few evenings of knitting camaraderie and classes. Check our class schedule for new and interesting projects and classes.

Have you tried the new Portuguese style of knitting? It is fabulous. You can knit sooooo fast with this method. I ordered the pins, an optional tool for this style of knitting, and the DVD. Can not wait to view it. I learned the technique last week and I have been practicing on everything since.

Speaking of practicing I finally finished the linen eyelet top. Linen is a very interesting fiber to work with, and there are so many colors. Let me know if anyone out there has worked with this fiber before.

Are you ready to dye sock yarn again? Just received the sock weight yarn to dye. We will be planning another dyeing activity, similar to the WWKIP Day event within the next few weekends. Details to follow.

More later CM

4th of July

Someone asked me what I had planned for the holiday. I found myself hoping that I had no social obligations planned. I was hoping that there would be no company and that I was not expected to be company any where else. Yehaaa, I was rewarded. (I must have been a very good girl.) I got to lay around in the sun, go for a short boat ride, read some trash paperback and enjoy my family. It was great. The weather was perfect, the company was entertaining and comfortable and I was hap hap happy about the holiday. Hope yours was enjoyable too, whatever you were wishing the holiday to be, I hope it was.

We are going to new summer hours at the shop. This is the 1st week for the new hours so we are all adjusting, you and I. As usual there are small glitches surrounding these new hours. The most important being the mail. Who'd have thought???? The mail used to be delivered in the morning and now that we are not open in the morning except for Tuesdays and Saturdays, something must be done about the mail. I really need to get on that.

In the mean time, let us know how the new hours are working for you. Do not mail your response please.

Later, cm
