Ballet T Shirt


Wine and Cheese and Handspun

On Friday, June 4th from 6 - 8PM we will host a trunk show from Spin, Span, Spun. 
She is a local spinner with an exquisite sense of color.  If you want a preview, you can see her work on Etsy or stop by the shop and see the skein I have (my personal collection!).   We'll also have some nice wine and tasty hors d'oeuvres.  I'll post an update as we get closer. 
In the meantime, the shop is really coming along.  We have some cotton dk weight in great colors and some worsted weight cotton called Luna from Cascade.  What beautiful colors it comes in and a great price too.
Here's my latest knit.

It's the Ballet T-Shirt from Teva Durham
I knit it in Brown Sheep Serendipity Tweed held doubled.  I wet blocked it and it just bloomed.  I wore it yesterday. It could be my favorite summer top, this may also become a favorite summer yarn.

I've started another top-down in Bahia from Schoeller + Stahl.  A washable rayon, polyester blend.  It's so soft and has a beautiful sheen.  We have it in hot summer colors but also some great neutrals. It would make a really cute child's sweater or baby blanket.  I'm knitting it for myself or the shop in this beautiful silvery, grey.

Maybe it will be done for Open Knit Night on Wednesday.
