Darcy is wearing her first sock. She is new to sock knitting and has already cast on for the second sock.
Helen is wearing a beautiful sweater she knit from Cherry Tree Hill Potluck Bulky. I love the colours.
Deb is working on a vest of Cotton Patagonia. Turning out very nice. Too bad the colour isn't good in that picture.
Carol our newest knitter is working on a top down pullover. We are inventing the pattern from an old favorite sweater.
Meika is playing with knitting needles. She really loves my knitting needles. She didn't have any knitting done to show - can't seem to keep her knitting on the needles.

I also got a great offer I couldn't refuse to buy a spinning wheel. I will get it on Tuesday. I am going to keep it at the store. I bought some fleece from Joy. She has sheep on Cortez Island. I met her last year when I went to the retreat at Hollyhock.
If you are coming to the International Fibrefest in Abbotsford you will get to see all of these vendors including me. We are all going to be there. May 11-12. I wonder if Jane and Anna will have the socks done by then. I wonder if I will have my husbands socks done by then.

It was very fun, Meika had a very creative way to block the shawl. I finished the shawl a few days ago and needed to block it since I want it for the store window. Meika really wanted to help so since I wanted to encourage her knitting interest I let her helped.
I always use knitting needles to hold the edges straight. I have never invested in blocking wire. I figure 3mm and under needles are just right. Here are the pictures. The last one was after she went home. I forgot to get a picture of the shawl in the store window. It looks great. It is knit with Country Silk from Fiddlesticks on 5.5mm needles. The pattern is here. It is the same pattern we knit for the Teddy bear shawls at the retreat.

They are Lilac, Lobelia and Country Garden. We also have something for the spinner and needle felters. Judy Maclean had some dyed tops for sale so I am offering them on the internet too. They make me want to take up spinning. I know nothing about spinning but I am sure going to learn soon . This fibre is beautiful. Go have at look at both additions to the web store.
