Sock Club, Monthly Contest, WWKIP Day... Oh My!

There sure a great deal going on at Yarn Cravin'! I can hardly keep up with it all. What I can tell you is that there will be great new yarns coming in the fall thanks to DaleAnn attending The National Needle Arts (TNNA) Convention in Columbus recently and ordering nearly everything. Really.

The Sock Club is moving along and participants are knitting gorgeous socks! Take a look:

This last photo is our newest sock club yarn. Remember, hand-dyed yarns can have great variation in them. See the difference in color intensity between the sock on the right and the sock on the left? Check out your skein before you buy.

If you haven't seen what the Monthly Contest is producing, you really do have to check it out. These are the entries for June; anything felted. Wow!

This past Saturday was World Wide Knit in Public Day. I couldn't attend to take photos, but rest assured, our regulars were camped out on the porch and in the yard, knitting and having fun together! Knitters all over the planet participate in WWKIP Day.

Come by and knit in the shade of the porch sometime soon. Bring whatever you're working on. There's nearly always a breeze, and there's certainly always someone to knit with.
