Weekly Strings

This week has been super exciting!!! We received our first shipment of Hedgehog Fibres and welcomed some new sewers into the world!!!

Look at those beautiful hand dyed skeins all the way from Ireland. I can't wait to cast on for the Sizzle Pop Triangular Shawl that was released this week.  Just looking at this picture I am thinking it has to be the two skeins in the bottom left, the purple and the peach. Let's talk about that super intense brioche though...eek! I think I can do it. I think I can do it. I think I can do it. 

And we completed our first EVER sewing class at HVK!!!! It was taught by Kim the super talented mastermind and wonderful creative lady behind JBird Stitch. Kim sells her oven mitts, project bags and zippered pouches at the shop and at various shows around Iowa!!! With her help students cut out and sewed a tote bag from a pattern, added an inner pocket, liner and even made their own straps!!! Excellent work ladies and Kim!!! 

happy weekend!!!
