Knitorious - Open in St. Louis!
If this doesn't look inviting, I don't know what is... Knitorious is set to open in St. Louis, MO, today! Sandy has been so busy, our communication has been a bit sparse of late, and I'm sure that she'll continue to be busy for quite some time! If you live in St. Louis, stop in and say Hello; the shop is located at 6136 Southwest Ave.; hours are 11-6, Tues.-Fri.; 10-5, Sat.; 12-5, Sun.; closed Mon.
Knitorious is the place for knitting and stitching in St. Louis. Besides knitting and crocheting supplies, the shop will also carry cross stitch supplies. But it's the yarn we're most interested in right now, isn't it? Sandy carries Debbie Bliss, Noro, Katia, Sirdar, Gedifra, Queensland Collection, Regia, Laines du Nord, and Schachenmayr, and also offers books, hardware, various kits, and classes. The website is still under construction (argh, only so many hours in a day), but eventually it'll all be there. Dang, I wish I didn't live so far away; it'll be mail order all the way for me! I do hope to visit someday soon. Good Luck, Sandy!!
I added the Shapely Shawlette and pertinent details to the Recently Completed photo album, but here's another view; these are my first self-taken, in-the-bathroom-mirror shots. I need to find/make a nice pin. I love this shawl!
I've been working on the thrummed mitten the last few nights, also. I finished off the mitt part last night and started the thumb -- next round, thumb thrums. There were issues last night and I had to frog a few rows for the first time (stupid thrums) -- I need to work on my wrapping technique. I had my hand inside as I picked up the stitches for the thumb and man, it was warm!!
This weekend: Kt will be home (a quickie visit), and I'll go to the farmer's market on Saturday (only a few more weeks of that), and it's Homecoming. There have been events all week, including the "burning of the letter" last night -- do any other schools still do that? I can look down on the parade from the end of my street tonight, and listen to the game from the back porch -- I can see it, too, if I get out the binoculars. Happy weekend to all!
