Autumn is Here!

Hello There,

Autumn has arrived.  What a lovely time of year.  The temperatures are cooling off (some days that is,) the colors are changing from the cool greens to shades copper and gold – all of which are visible in this photo which comes to us from Lesley’s mum in Colorado.  It is a time of change certainly.  The evenings are drawing in, sometimes we still make it home before dark. A time to break out the sweaters and comfy blankets, a time to snuggle on the couch.

Now is the time to finish those projects that have been waiting for you all summer and to start some new ones. The holidays will be here before you know it. As always we have lots of ideas for you, and new yarn arriving daily.  If you are interested in making a Christmas Stocking,

Sebastopol Knitting Classes

I am planning on an after hours or Sunday class between October 6th and 16th or November 13th to 20th.  Please, let me know as soon as possible so that I can firm up some dates.  You can learn so many techniques in this class.  You will be amazed!

We have been seeing more and more of your finished projects lately.  I guess the show and tell is really inspiring you.

Here is Gillian with her modified Tiong Bahru shawl:

Stay tuned next week for more customer projects we have a bunch more for you to see!

We have posted past customer projects in the photo gallery.

It is not too late to start a Svalbard Sweater for the knit-a-long. Here are a few to whet your appetite.  All of these came by the store on Friday!

We did a head count and I think there are 11 of these at least in progress already!  Come on, you know you want to knit one too!

Until next week, stay cool, or warm, or both as the weather allows and keep on knitting!
