Knit-Out & Crochet 17-18 February 2007

The weekend of 17-18 February 2007 at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, the Craft Yarn Council is sponsoring a Knit-Out and Crochet event. Information can be found at the following websites: www.craftyarncouncil.com and at www.Knit-Out.com. I've posted on my blog other tidbits of information/links if your interested in attending.

I'll be there...being so close how could I miss it?

(sorry I didn't put this into the "upcoming events" area...I just couldn't quite figure out how to post it.)

Hope to see ya there!

Happy New Year

Hi guys,

Wishes for you all to have a safe and very Happy New Year.

It'll be a quiet and early evening here spent working on another pair of slouch socks. After all the activity of the past week, it'll be a very pleasent time to just relax.

Greetings and wishes to all for a grand Holiday Season

Gosh!! It has been far too long since I'd last posted here. Thank you all for your greetings and welcoming to the site. It's been wonderful viewing all the knitted items that everyone has been working on, and all the tremendous information that has been shared.

These past few months have been rather hectic, with too much knitting and crocheting of Holiday gifts to be completed, along with the onset of the Winter products arriving in the store and all the hustle and bustle of getting it to the salesfloor; not to mention the assisting of customers in making their choices.

To date I've completed six pairs of socks, four hats and accompanying scarves and mittens, a sweater, and a few comforters, and successfully had them mailed in time to arrive at thier destinations before the Holidays.

Hope everyone has a very joyous Holiday.

hello

I'm another recent new member. Figured I'd better set down the knitting for bit, and say hello. "Hello"  I'd initially learned to knit in the single digit years of age(between 6 - 9), after quite a long time away from the needles (decades); a few years ago I once again picked them up and have been reacquainting myself with knitting.

The part of knitting that I have difficulty with is the finishings of a project (blocking, and assembly). With time and practice, hopefully, the abilities will improve.

I've enjoyed visiting the site often, and am excited to have finally joined. Thank you.
