Picture it...Sicily, 1982.....oops wrong show! Winding down the week, thinking of what to write in the newsletter, sitting here eating my fave "ice cream sammich" in my sweats and t-shirt..enjoying silence (except for the dachshund snoring). Thinking "I will knit after this....yarn....knitting...yarn..." so Here we are, If you've been in the shop, you've probably seen me knitting on some sweaters!! I'm working with some gorgeous Malabrigo Rios and creating a textured argyle cardigan for moi in the colorway Azule-Profundo!! I'm also working on another "Bumpy" cardigan (Pattern by Max the Knitter) except, I created my own version of stripes to go with it, cause I can haha!!, I'm using the wonderful Twisted Willow Plush DK (merino, cashmere, nylon) in the Regatta colorway!! It hit me last Sunday that I did not have any socks on needles since Christmas so I cast on a pair of socks with the pattern, "Kindness Socks Recipe" in some Leading Men Showstopper green!! Pics coming soon..Let me know what you're working on as well ! Bring it in and let's have some "Show and Tell"!!

Come join the Triangle Fiber Guild at our next meeting on February 12, 2024 @ 6:30 pm @ Oak City Fibers! The Knitted Knockers Program is well underway at Oak City Fibers! Many of you have come in and acquired your yarn (Bamboo Pop) and started casting on your knockers!! Breast Cancer has affected so many millions of people and this is a great way to give back to the community!! Breast Cancer Awareness holds great importance to us at Oak City Fibers. Therefore, we have decided to become a proud sponsor of this great organization and will donate part of our sales proceeds in 2024 to this cause! I've been in contact with a local lady, Lacey, that is heavily involved with this great cause. She has knit over 450 Knockers and will be offering a class on March 2 at 1:00p.m. at Oak City Fibers. The Knitted Knockers Organization has specific yarn requirements. Oak City Fibers stocks "Bamboo Pop" by Universal Yarns, so come in the shop and get your yarn prior to class!
