With my leftover Neighborhood Fiber Company Studio Worsted, I made the Poet Society Tam pattern from Madelinetosh, since I am teaching the class and needed a shop sample (pattern also available at the store). I shortened it a bit since my tiny pin head can’t wear a full sized slouchy beret. I do love it! I wish it weren’t so darn hot out…now to plot what I will do with the rest of my leftovers. It seems like there is no end to this yarn. i had three 400 yard hanks and it still isn’t gone.. (by the way, our next shipment of 125 pounds of this yarn will arrive in early September)
I visited our friends at Looped today to welcome them to their first day in the wild and wonderful DC metro area yarn shop ownership circle. They have the most adorable space ever…they carry some lines that you won’t find here, like Classic Elite, Rowan, Debbie Bliss, Tili Tomas and Blue Heron. You will also see some familiar faces over there. Tanis Gray, an instructor here, is also working and teaching at the shop. Go in and say hello!
