A big thank you to all who joined us for an inspiring day at By Hand Yarn.  Lorna was/is a captivating woman who quickly settled in to tell stories with us all.   I can’t wait to have her back again.

Shawl in Helen's Lace

Shawl in Helen's Lace

In honor of Lorna Miser due here on Saturday, it seems appropriate to have our last Customer Trunk Show picture be one done in Helen’s Lace. 

 

A big thank you to everyone who has loned us their beautiful handknit and crocheted items for this years Customer Trunk Show.

The Customer Trunk Show picture above is from Kimono Style.  It was done in Debbie Bliss – Pure Cotton.  Once again, my picture taking needs improvement.  (Remember though, a year ago I didn’t even know how to post a picture.) 

Great “Public” knitting

Waterfall Shawl

Today’s selected picture from our Customer Trunk Show is of the Waterfall Shawl.  This was done with Blue Heron Texture Cotton and Gems sport weight held together. 

Here in the store we have coined the term “public” knitting to refer to those projects that one can knit on whenever, and carry on a conversation, perhaps sip on a glass of wine or whatever.  This particular project is knit all in garter stitch until the cast off which is done dropping the stitches and letting them run to create a waterfall.   This is public knitting at its best…

Carri Ray, an avid knitter and friend of By Hand Yarn moved to Texas last week.   This picture was taken at the Diamond Back where a few of us  gathered for lunch after her last Block of the Month class in May.
If you haven’t guessed, Carri is also crazy for purple. 
I will post another Trunk Show picture soon.
