Where does the time go? Its August already. I seem to have missed a few months. Ive been kitting up a storm. Baby blankets, lace shawls, felted bags – its great to see them all take shape.
This week, the Filati annual Summer Sale is on. There is a huge selection of Fall and Summer yarns. I’ve got my eye on several things.
Some of the Rowan yarns have been discontinued, so have Louisa Harding, Curious Creek, Mountain Colors and others.
Today (Saturday 12th August), Betsy Coyne and Pat Clark, knitting instructors will be at Filati so you can ask questions and sign up for classes. Betsy Coyne is from “Cultured Purl”. Her Fall classes are for felted items – be quick before the classes fill up. I made two felted bags recently and they both turned out really well. I felted them in my front loader Bosche washing machine and I’m really happy with the result. Pat Clark’s Fall classes are for beaded knitting and there has been a lot of interest so far.
The Filati Fine Yarns has directions to the store, if you need them.
