Seeing Green

It's not often that we reach 70 degrees in mid-March, but for St. Patrick's Day, we sure did! What luck! Tuesday Insanknitty was held outside on the porch. The sun was even shining for us.

Sarah and Becky had their green on, but Barb looks like she just saw a spider!

Addi Purl was wearing green, too.

Sarah showed off her green socks, made from the St. Patty's Day Flat Feet.

Bobbie made a fabulous green cake for us. Look, I saved you a bite. Yummmmm.... (If you get to Yarn Cravin' fast enough there might be a whole piece left for you. Seriously.)

So, where were all of you? We missed you! You wouldn't believe all the new goodies coming into the shop for spring and summer. Stop by and look, and touch. Amazing books are coming in too; everything from basic "how-to" books on up to detailed sock books. Stay in the loop, because some of these will fly out the door as fast they come in.

The Porch is Open... Well, sometimes.

Some of our knitter friends came in from Chicago and southern Ohio this past weekend, and the weather cooperated enough for us to actually knit outside. Yes, friends, the porch is open! The white stuff is gone, and the days are longer and warmer. Here's photographic proof that people were indeed outside, knitting on the porch.

The Monday Night Sock Club knitters have socks to show off for you. Who's missing a foot??

Meet Our Newest Family Member

This is Addi Purl.

Don't be surprised if you see her now and again when you come into Yarn Cravin'

When she curled up in my arms, she went right to sleep. Ignore me. Just look at Addi. Please. Just look at the angelic sleeping puppy!

There's been more sock knitting going on! Maria finished her January/February socks, see?

Mary and Julie show off some finished socks of their own. Nicely done, ladies!Here are some faces we haven't seen featured here yet! How's the knitting going, gals? Have you signed up for the Spring Retreat yet?? You know, we aren't ALL about knitting at Yarn Cravin'. Plenty of people are crocheting, too. Maria was working on this lovely blanket Tuesday night. April had a baby blanket she was finished that was crocheted, too. Yes, we are multi-craftual.

Remember, Tuesday nights are Insanknitty nights! Bring your yarns and whatever you use for crafting. Come and play.
