Just Like Riding a Bike

Posted by Caroline Hershey

Shirley started coming to the shop a couple of years ago saying, “I know I knitted in college, but haven’t a clue now.” Many shawls, scarves, and a couple sweaters later, I think it’s safe to say that that info is stored in the recesses of your brain just to be let loose. What a go Shirley!

These little guys, Bunny Nuggets, and my knitted Easter eggs are just too cute. Both patterns off Ravelry and I used leftovers for each.

March Madness

Posted by Caroline Hershey

I have dubbed this shawl March Madness because while watching the games, I merrily knitted along failing to reverse the side that I was short rowing on. Decided it looked just fine and am loving it. :) The pattern is Heartbreak which I found on Ravelry.  I am using the Heritage Silk Paints and a solid Regia sock yarn. If you look at the pattern, you’ll see that I am not following her color scheme.

KintXperience Lite was a gathering of 25 lovely ladies who melded together into one fun loving group, sharing their projects and experiences and of course their sense of humor. We had a grand time and thanks to all of them and Melissa for all their contributions to such a wonderful weekend.

Hats & SoX

Posted by Caroline Hershey

The jogless jog and no purl bumps make knitting a striped hat much more  fun and the results a delight.

If you were coming to KnitXperience Lite we’d show you how to accomplish this.

Speaking of retreats, our SoXperience retreat is fast approaching in April. Lorilee Beltman is the workshop presenter this year demonstrating stranding colors on the leg of a sock. Once this technique is added to your knitting repertoire, you will be able to use it in many instances where you want color traveling on your work. Lorilee is an accomplished sock knitter and has taught many classes at Stitches across the country. Moving at a comfortable pace, she is able to instruct to all types of learning methods, visually, written and oral instruction. You won’t want to miss this year’s SoXperience. Hope to see you there.

 

Snow on Chincoteague, Again!

Posted by Caroline Hershey

Really, I think this must be a record number of snows on Chincoteague. School children will be moaning when summertime comes and finds them still in school making up the days.

The snow brought welcome visitors to our bird feeders. We had begun to despair of having song birds but the snow made us fast friends. Look at these lovelies:

And our very favorite:

We just returned from the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival just in time to avoid the snow although we had to unload with big fat flakes coming down. This Swirl Hat was the hit at the quilt show. I knitted it out of the KnitCol yarn and the pattern can be found on Ravelry. The pattern is nice but doesn’t knock your socks off until you make it with the KnitCol as you can see here. The pattern has sizes from preemie to adult. Great pattern!
