July Taste of the West

Here is a hint for the July Taste of the West Yarn,  You are going to need a button to finish this project.  It will be a free pattern on Ravelry.  I knit it up in a very short time and loved making all those cables.  Come join us if you want to be a part of our Taste of the West Club at Serendipity Yarn and Gifts..

How does your garden grow????

I love coming to work every day, not only is there a large array of color once I unlock the door to Serendipity Yarn and Gifts and enter in--it starts before you even get in the door.  Thanks to our gardener Janet it always looks very inviting.

I have started knitting the July Taste of the West project--here is a hint, you are going to need a button.

Taste of the West packages in the mail

Here is my Raindrops on Roses out of the June Taste of the West--Jody was kind enough to let me take her photo.  I love the colors and will have another skein of this yarn in my stash after today.  There are lots of skeins of this so you members give me a call after you get your package if you want another one.  I know it makes wonderful socks.  I have pictures to prove that.  If you are not a member we still have three slots left--come join in our fun.

Working on my design with Mira's BAAH yarn.  I might be finished by Friday if I can keep my needles clicking.  This yarn is a delight to work with and if I can get it done Mira would like to have it to look at while she has her booth at TNNA.  Maybe she will even display it--how about that.

Prepare Round # 2

I really have committed my self to designing a  shawl.  My package arrived from Baah yarn company.  The La Jolla  original hand painted sock yarn  is the choice for Round # 2.  This little ant wanted in the photo also.  (if you can't tell by now I love taking pictures)   Mira chose these colors for me-  I love them-Chocolate Cherries and Byzantine Gold.  Thanks ever so much for gifting me some of your fiber to play with.   I think you are going to like the results. 

Serendipity Yarn and Gifts will have this yarn on our shelves soon.  You are going to love it.

Here is the 1st try at my "Blue Spruce"---my days off start tomorrow.  :)  I will be knitting with my new yarn after I get my chores done.

June's Taste of the West is ready and waiting!

I spent some time making the gift tags to go out with June's shipment of Taste of the West.  I have finished my project and am waiting to post some photos after the yarn is shipped out.  You can see it peaking out from these aspen tree leaves.  Aspen Ridge is the perfect name for the Mountain Colors yarn.  There are only 4 slots left in the Taste of the West Club so give me a call at Serendipity Yarn and Gifts if you want in on the fun.
