What's on my needles (week 21)

Thank you!

First of all I want to say a BIG Thank You to all of you who went to the Yarn Sale Fundraiser for Cancer.  The Tivoli Library had many people stop by and was able to raise over $300 for the cause.
Additionally to that, several blankets, hats and booties were collected.  Everything will go to the Cancer Center in Albany.
For those who missed the sale or want to go again:  There will be a repeat fundraiser (yarns and books) on the Tivoli town wide yard sale day on Saturday July 26th.


 At The Knitting Garage


A reminder that this Saturday we will have a class at The Knitting Garage on the "Pinwheel Spa Cloth".  You will learn an easy (!) circular cast-on, how to knit with double-pointed needles, several lace stitches and a crochet bind-off.
There are still three spots left available for this class.















Store sample

The little Harriet Dress is finished.  It looks adorable; the perfect dress for summer time.  The pattern gives instructions for sizes 6 months to 5 years and is available for purchase at The Knitting Garage.

At Home

Summer Flies

My "Summer Flies Shawl" is finished and came out beautifully.  It was much easier and quicker to knit up than I had anticipated.


 Great Grand Sun Hat

I also knitted up a Summer hat in less than a week.  This hat has a lovely wide brim to keep your face shaded.  I usually wear baseball caps in summer, but this is much more elegant.  I also like the fact that it folds up small (to put in your purse) and it can be washed.  I knitted my hat up in the Trendsetter Lino, a cotton/linen blend yarn.
If you take the class next week Saturday, June 21, you will learn how to knit in the round on both circular and double pointed needles, add stitches, work with slipped stitches, and knit cables.
