A few good things

Tonight's the big Friday night open house. We're always open on Friday night, so that's old news, but the rest of the house will be open tonight. That means chocolate, and candy and wine! And lovely things in Mia Dennis and Maria herself. And Bettina Bierly will be on hand. Her workshop, next to the candy store, is really something to see. 

And a little more incentive for you: I've just received shipment of a new line. Knitter's Pride, which makes all manner of gorgeous tools for knitters and crocheters at every level. Included:

Have you seen these? They are Cubics single points from Knitter's Pride. I've been hearing nothing but great things about them. I just got them yesterday, so I haven't had a chance to try them out, but I can't wait. I hear they're really comfortable to use and create very even stitches. I'm told they're wonderful for beginning knitters. Everyone I know who's used them love them. For now, I'm only carrying the single points, but I'm toying with the idea of carrying the interchangeables, too. What do you think?

I also have the Symfonie Dreamz double-points in all the sizes. Not only are these beautiful to look at, they are wonderful to work with. If you haven't tried them yet, you've got to get in here. What are you waiting for?

These wonderful crochet hooks are also from Knitter's Pride. Word is that the ergonomic handles allow you to crochet for hours comfortably. I'm working on a big project, so I'm about to find out firsthand if that's true. I will let you all know.

I've been wanting to get these in for such a long time. They are wonderful, especially for lace knitters. The small magnets hold your chart to the magnetic binder and the magnetic bar keeps your place in the chart or written pattern. Makes me want to knit some complicated lace just to get to use one of these babies.

Come on in and check these out. I'm getting a couple deliveries every day, so there's always something new.
