Lotsa Stuff


If anyone is still looking for a knit cable mug (like this), I saw one this past Saturday (the 14th) on the Clearance table at the Starbucks located in the Southtown Shopping Center (at 494 & Penn).

Sock Competitions:

It’s too late to sign up, but a new Sock Madness begins on March 18! I signed up for this iteration, but several commitments have come up suddenly so I don’t know how I’ll fare. Also, another Sock Wars will begin in May; sign-ups are still open (I’m not sure when they close). A new element, teams, has been introduced this year.

Local Events:

Quick reminder! There’s only 2 weeks left for the ASI Bohus exhibit, so if you haven’t visited yet, do stop by soon! (According to the museum website, it ends March 29; however, the MN Knitter’s Guild website indicates the exhibit ends April 5?)

The Melvilles (Sally Melville, and her daughter Caddy Melville Ledbetter) will be hosted by The Yarnery on Sunday March 22. They’ll be talking about their new book. (Details are in the sidebar here.)

Yarnover comes next month, April 18. I’ll be taking Susanna Hansson’s Lapland mitten class, and can’t wait!

And in May is Shepherd’s Harvest, the local mecca for fiber enthusiasts!

We sure are lucky to have lots of fiber events this spring! :)

    I’m taking Sally Melville’s fit to flatter class at Yarnover. In its honor I am NOT casting on for my Baby Cables sweater until after I have taken the class.
