Maggi Jackson plus Julie
I feel like a little kid I am so excited about Maggi coming to the store this weekend. She is so much fun, her designs are so contemporary and she is bringing her U.K. operations manager Julie to see how classes run in the U.S. We will have our own little sampling of the U.K. and Irish culture about the store. They will both be in the store on Friday if people are not able to come to the other events to meet them stop by and say Hi.

Sweetest crochet baby blanket

O.K. those of you that love to crochet or want to learn to crochet, check out this baby blanket....probably the sweetest I have seen in a while.....It is so simple...maybe it is the simplicity that makes it so wonderful....maybe the fact that it is made out of the Blue Sky Alpaca organic cotton.....maybe the fact that I am a sucker for scalloped edgings and ribbon...anyway here is the picture and the free downloadable pattern link:

Here's Sasha

Here we go....Sasha wanted to be seen.....sorry for the delay....I finally found my camera cord....so look out....I have lots of pictures stored up!


Maggiknits project next!

So I am on a little bit of a linen kick, having just finished Sasha and all. I decided it is time for me to start working with some of our Maggiknits Linen. I have a multitude of projects I have wanted to start with the linen. I love the Aranmore shawl from her incredible Maggie's Ireland book(we have a store sample if you are curious).
We did the Alaca wrap in a store knitalong...that was alot of fun because there is alot of lace work in individual squares...so there was always variety. I actually think I am just going to do a simple project(the Camas Bolero) from her book the The Gathered Look because I think my mind will be mush for the first week or so after my surgery. I am hoping I will have it done by the time Maggi comes for our Maggi Jackson weekend.
