Yesterday was a roller coaster, to say the least. The ladies from Kelbourne Woolens were here for a fabulous trunk show, book signing and workshop for their new book – Vintage Modern Knits. Seeing the garments in person was amazing. I am inspired to knit several more projects in the book after seeing them here in person. If you haven’t already, check out Kel’s Inspiration post about the book, with a full review of the projects. We will be hosting a knitalong for the Brigid Jacket seen here starting on February 24th. I am hoping that we can get a classic cabled sweater finished in time for St. Patties day! If you want to knit along with us, you will need to know:
-how to increase and decrease
-how to read a cable chart
-how to cable
So anyway, Courtney Kelley and Kate Gagnon Osborn were here yesterday for the day, and it was wonderful! They taught a Roositud workshop, one of the unique techniques in the book. (no worries, if you missed the workshop, the book includes instructions on how to work this technique, and we can help you as well.) We enjoyed some fab cupcakes from Lavender Moon Cupcakery and chatted in the lounge with the ladies during the book signing. We have almost sold through our second shipment of the book, but there are still some copies here, if you haven’t picked one up yet. If you did make it to the trunk show yesterday, what was the garment that you were most excited about?
I did actually finish my steeler’s hat…photos coming soon. (I left the darn thing at home). But it didn’t seem to help us win last night. So after a wonderful day at the shop, I went home to a house full of people and a Pittsburgh loss 🙁 I like the Packers, so it was an odd game for me. So congrats to the Packers fans out there!
