Here she is checking out Ming. She isn't sure about her. Prorbably wondering why she is so quiet. Notice they are about the same size now. Meika is 18 lbs.
Helen was in the store on Sat. and brought in her sweater to show. It is wonderful. She knit it with Cherry Tree Hill brushed mohair and Rowan Kid Soft. It turned out beautiful and is very soft. She looks great in it. I love the way the sweater is joined at the front.
This is going to be a busy week. The store will be closed on Sat. Feb 25th as we will be at the North Island Sewing and needle Craft Show in Campbell River. This will be at the Campbell River Community Centre, 401 11th St. between 9am and 5 pm. Should be a busy fun day. I will have lots of yarn there to sell, Lots of sock yarn, Opal, Regia, Fortissima, Lorna's Laces, Cherry Tree Hill, plus Noro, Mango Moon, Rowan Kid Soft, Silky Wool, Fiddlesticks Country Silk, Collinette Giotto and Isis etc...... and a great selection of Novelty yarns. I will also be bringing a good selection of Sweatermaker yarns including a new beaded yarn, and some new hand dyed merino in fingering and lace weight. Those alone will make the trip worth it to check out our yarns at the Market Place. Hope to see you there.

Here is a picture of Deb trying on her new sock. This is her first sock and she is quite proud of it. Should be done soon. She is knitting it with Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Java. Looks great
And this is Max and his Mom. To bad I got a picture of Max with his eyes half shut. I should learn to take more than 1 picture. Anyways Max is learning to knit and he is going to knit a scarf with Stop and Go in lime green. Once he is done that scarf he is going to learn to knit a diagonal scarf. He is so cute and very enthusiastic. Can't wait to see his scarf.
The store was great fun as always and very busy.

The Malabrigo sweater is the yoked cable sweater from this months Vogue magazine.
I also have several pair of baby socks nearly done. I am trying to make a pattern for baby socks that stay on those chubby little feet. I will post my pattern when done and if they are successful and stay on her feet. I am sending some socks down to Meika to try out. Lets hope she can't kick them off.
Hope everyone enjoys the Olympics and gets lots of knitting done.
