We just got in a shipment of Addi Lace needles. These needle are perfect for lace for several reasons.
Here's a quick list:
1) The tip is just the exact right amount of pointy.
2)The red cable makes it easier to see your stitches.
3)The needles are coated to create a small amount of drag so that the needle isn't quite as slippery as the regular Addi's.
Everyone who has tried these needles, loves them. These are a must have for avid lace knitters. Read the review of these needles on Knitter's Review. http://www.knittersreview.com/article_tool.asp?article=/review/product/070215_a.asp .

We have finally set the date for the Rosalie Knit Along. We are starting Saturday, May 17th at 2 p.m. I'm not quite sure how many people are participating, but we definitely have room for more. There is still time to join in. Remember- there is a 20% discount on the yarn for the project (just in case you need a little more incentive!). Also- if you are not into the idea of a knitted skirt, the pattern also can be made into a cape which is just as beautiful.

This summer I promise that I am going to the Farmer's Market more often. I think that this market bag will inspire me to do so. It is such a bright happy color. Plus, it is really big and stretchy, so I know it will hold A LOT. It was a very quick and easy knit. If you start now, you can be ready for the markets, too. Hurry, the Green City Market starts on Wednesday! Stop in this weekend, the pattern is free.
Also- here's a quick Fall preview:
I know Summer hasn't even here, but we are already starting to buy yarn for Fall. Opal sock yarn has a new Harry Potter line coming out around the same time as the movie. So all of you Harry Potter fans, get ready! There will some fun promotional events happening with the launch of the yarn. I'll keep you posted as we learn more.
There are other exciting things coming for Fall, but I let you know more later. After all, we still have Summer coming and I don't want to get too far ahead of it!
