Ann's Baby Sweater

Ann is a long time knitter who comes in regularly with Ernesto - he & Riley are best friends.Recently she finished a modified February baby sweater knit without the lace pattern using Koigu. She brought it by for us to see before it was sent off to a lucky baby.

The color is perfect & the owl buttons seem to be made for fall and that colorway. What a great sweater - perfect for parents who don't want to find out if they are expecting a boy or a girl!


It feels so good to be back in the shop again but I'll always treasure the time spent with Adam & Riley on our trip west to the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Devils Tower & The Badlands.

Old Faithful Geyser in Yellowstone National Park

Devil's Tower National Monument

The Badlands National Park

On our way back the timing was perfect for a visit to our friends at Lorna's Laces in Chicago! It was great to see Beth Casey again and go on a fantastic tour of her studio. Beth showed us how the yarn is dyed from beginning to end - it was heaven. I was surrounded by gorgeous yarns & colors that were breathtaking.

We picked up the shop's fall order & left with a hug and the hopes that we'll see each other in January in San Diego.

Thank you Beth & everyone at Lorna's!

Throughout the trip & time spent with breathtaking views my needles were constantly clicking. I had a few projects with me & as they are completed updates will be posted.
