10 years of knitting, that is a lot of stitches

These ladies have been coming to Buena Vista for 10 years as a group of knitters. Not everyone was in the shop today for this photo but I managed to corral a few of them so I could share some of their faces with you all too. The Serendipity Diva's were invited to their party tonight to celebrate along with them. I can't begin to tell you how I loved walking into Liar's Lodge and seeing all those women knitting. I will see if I can get Tami to take a few photo's of their "Show and Tell" tomorrow so I can post them. It is fun to see all the projects they have been creating.

I want to see you all at our sale on Sunday!! Maybe you can meet some of these ladies there also--it is going to be so much fun. I can't wait. See you soon.

Lady Bug, Lady Bug Fly Away

Meg Castle has been talking about coming to Serendipity for months her husband mentioned as he was sipping fresh brewed coffee and patiently waiting for Meg to shop. Meg is from Stillwater and loves to stop by a couple times a year. This new blocking kit now makes it's home in a new state.
Janet taught a spinning class on Saturday and Cheryl and Linda tried out the new Lady Bug spinning wheel Tami brought back from Schacht in Boulder. One Lady Bug already flew out of the store to a new home with Cheryl. I now have a Matchless at my house!! Come by and check out our new spinning supplies.

Why Do You Knit?

I just wanted to let you know we have lots of signed copies of Joanna Johnson's books in the store. She was so nice to leave some with us.

I finished my wedding jacket!! And yes it fits--I love it. I will hang it in the shop for a few weeks. I really can't believe how well it turned out and I only had about 10 feet of yarn left over. That is way to close for comfort I would say. Photo's below:

Why I knit :). After I finished the jacket much time was spent thinking about what to make next. Joanna had on the Citron shawl which is in Knitty winter 2009. Over 6500 people have knit this cute shawl. I have casted it on in some mini mochi and can't sleep at night because I want to see what the next color will look like. I am loving knitting it and take a look at my new bag----we just got them in and I had to bring one home with my project tucked safely in side.
Look at my Citron Shawl, it is really a fun knit and you beginners can join in. I can get you started with some very fun yarns. I also have the cast on's after the Denver knitters were here. This knitter still is only knitting one project at a time so I will have to wait to start the Maude by Julie Weisenberger. What kind of knitter are you???? I would love to see a comment or two on our blog.

From this to.................................................................
This!! I am so happy for Tami to get a new office with some nice peaceful colors to work in. Ted was busy painting while the Denver knitters were busy looking around the shop. I was way to busy today to get photo's of the group, maybe tomorrow a bunch of them will stop long enough for me to get a photo. Busy, Busy, Busy is what we are here in BV. Buzzzzz by, lots of fun will be had for sure.
*don't be alarmed, Ted is just trying to get those bright colors covered up with some primer. I will keep you posted on the progress.

Saturday at Serendipity

We started the day with Joanna Johnson and her family joining us for her book signing, there are still signed books in the store if you were out of town. Beth, one of our Knotty Knitters purchased a few books for the younger members in her family.

Later in the afternoon another group of "Naughty Knitters" joined us for a mobius class. I loved teaching them, they were all a delight. Donna brought this group together for a knitting retreat here in BV. They all did a mystery knit and here is Twisted Angelina hanging out with two of the mystery monsters. Notice one of the monsters has her mobius on.
