Great News

A few of my patterns have been selected to go in a new Noro Pattern book. I am really excited about this. My Noro Transitions sweater , my Noro Hat patterns and a a couple of sock patterns and a baby vest. I was really excited about this. The book is coming out later this year. They also want me to design a few items using alpalca for a different book coming out in 2006. This should be fun.
The store was great yesterday. So much fun you can't call it work. I have a lot of interest for the knit along so I figure we will start March 1. The top is a fairly easy lace pattern. My Mom is working on it now and she said once you get past the first few rows the pattern makes sense. I haven't tried it yet but I am going to do the Knit along. I am going to make it in Super 10 but I haven't decided the colour yet.
I have had a lot of interest in the Sock Yarn Afghan contest too so get your squares in. Mine is lonely. They are easy to make. Done in one good movie.

That is so wonderful Shelley! I'm really happy for you. Do we get autographed copies of the book, for those of us who knew you when? They are great patterns though, and you deserve it.
See you Saturday. There will probably 3 or 4 of us. We're taking the 12:30 ferry. Not sure if we'll have lunch at the Lovin Oven first, or come to the shop first.
