LYS Day 2020

Saturday September 12 is LYS Day. This has always been a fun day in the store. This year it isn't happening in our store but we are planning something in the parking lot. It will totally be dependant on the weather but fingers crossed we will have a nice day.

This means that I need to get kits prepared.
This is Andrea Mowry's Birds of a Feather. It is a beautiful shawl and I spent some time today retaking pictures of our kits. I also added a few new colours.

Birds of a Feather will be one of the garments on display for LYS Day.

The shawl is knit with a single ply fingering weight yarn and a lace weight mohair/silk blend.

We're still working out some details but I wanted you to know so that you can plan.

Our parking lot will be blocked off (there is parking in the empty lot beside the store) and we are going to set up a Knitters’ Fair booth outside. Our knitters have been busy and we have many, many beautiful samples for you to see. We’ve been busy making up kits for these garments. What else will be for sale?

-Andrea Mowry has a new pattern being released on September 10 and we will have kits
-Rowan magazines for fall 2020
-J Hendry bags
-Namaste bags at super deals
-Soak Wash and Hand Sanitizer
-Cocoknits accessories
-Mystery Grab Bags
-Knox Mountain Shawl Cuffs

I will post more over the next few days.

A newsletter went out this afternoon and for some reason I have a lot of bounces. You can view it here if it didn’t make it to your inbox.

My face masks are having a nice bath in Soak. Here is a blog post from Soak on washing your masks. 

And while we’re talking about Soak, Kate Atherley wrote a great article for Modern Daily Knitting about blocking. It’s a quick read and very informative.

I’ve spent enough time in front of my computer today. It’s time to knit.
