Congratulations to all our Knitting Olympians!
We had a good turnout at the store today! Everyone got a free knitting pattern, and we had a few specials on yarn so that people could get started on their next project. (Well, a few of us still have to finish this project, but that's beside the point.)
It was interesting listening to all the stories of what people learned. We had first garments, first felting, first zipper, first knitting-in-the-round-with-cables. We were charmed particularly with Kim's crocheted wedding-ring pillow (lower picture, far left, woman with broad smile and roundish object in hands), which comes provided with directions for how to get the rings off the pillow during the ceremony.
Special congratulations to Karen, who won 2 skeins each of red, white, and blue Quest. We wanted her to knit something that represented America!
Stay tuned to our blog, and over the next year, we're sure we'll have more special events planned. This kind of fun will surely feed on itself.
Time for Cynthia to continue knitting her sweater. Watch for news of its progress here.
If you participated, but weren't able to come last night, drop a line and let us know how your Olympics went!
