What's Clicking on the needles @ Serendipity

I am drawing my energy from all the beauty that surrounds me. There were beautiful people in the store all day and lots of color everywhere. My eyes never get tired of looking at all the yarn so the strength I gain from being surrounded by all of this greatness keeps me clicking right along. I am knitting some "Chugiak" hand dyed sock yarn from Pagewood Farm. At this time in my life with so much to learn I need a very simple knit, a 22.5 Degrees Shawl will fit the bill. I love the colors in this yarn, it is called Maple Leaf. They are talking snow in Leadville tonight and we all know that means shawl and jacket season is arriving soon.

I had the pleasure of working with me good friend Joan today and she is knitting a "Amherst" cardigan which she purchased two buttons for today. I might be correct in saying this is her first sweater attempt and Classic Elite Worsted in royal blue is going to look perfect on her. I will post pictures when she is wearing this beauty.

Tami is working on her 3rd giant Granny Square afghan. This on is out of some Zauberball. Her dad is going to enjoy this gift for sure. Oh, I do hope that was not supposed to be a surprise. Lots of fun stuff happening at the shop, new yarns in today which will go out soon. We also have spent a couple days getting the fiber moved down to the spinning room. Come on by--more photos to come. Until next time Keep Knitting--it will make you Happy, Happy, Happy
