My wedding day.
The births of my two children.
The day I finally knew I had beat cancer.
And the day my author copy of 60 Quick Knits from America’s Favorite Yarn Shops arrived at The Woolie Ewe.
I’d been waiting so long, I’d forgotten about looking for it, then suddenly it was here, turning an ordinary day into platinum, diamonds, and pure cashmere.
Like others in the 60 Quick Knits series, it’s filled with patterns from 60 different designers, ranging from gorgeous to clever to fun and back to gorgeous. There are scarves, hats, gloves, socks, and more, each beautifully photographed and clearly written.
In the past few weeks, the Ewes and I have been knitting several of the projects: Jacqui knit the Asymmetrical Shawl, Sylvia made the Animal Vest with intarsia bears, Edward chose the Graphic Mitts for his first color work project, Laurie and Christina knit my Lacy Cables Hat, and I knit the Mesh Cowl. I’ve also started working on the Faux-Woven Scarf.
Looking for quick gift ideas? The Cabled Boot Toppers, Twisted Rib Hat, Cabled Fingerless Mitts, and Slouchy Lace Hat are all great choices. I love the Sock Monkey Hat, Colorblock Sweater, and Felted Elephant for kids. Want to knit for your little dog? Check out the Football Dog Sweater. With so many choices, you’re sure to find projects perfect for gifts and for yourself.
As most of you know, I still have to wear hats even though I beat cancer a long time ago. I designed the Lacy Cables Hat to be comfortable indoors and when it’s not quite so cold outside. I’ve made it out of cotton for summertime, too.
To celebrate my first time to be published in a book, The Woolie Ewe is staying open late this Thursday, Dec. 5, for a Cascade Yarn Tasting and Book Signing, 4:00–8:00 p.m.
Mike, the sales rep, will be here with all of Cascade’s new yarns as well as customer favorites for you to try out. We’ll have some snacks, punch, and lots and lots of door prizes.
