The shop was closed most of Friday and all day Saturday because of the mix of sleet and snow that covered the Triangle, making for dangerous driving. It wasn’t much snow, to be sure, but the threat of slippery, icy roads was enough for us; better safe than sorry, better to stay home and enjoy one of the pleasures of a Southern winter: a snow day. No surprise, I did a lot of knitting. What better use could there be for an unexpected day at home? I worked on Burrard, a cabled cardigan that has kept me company this past month or so. Thanks to a class I took at TNNA in June and to the oh-so-useful Charts Made Simple, I finally feel confident knitting from charts. It’s exciting to watch the cable patterns emerge, row by row, and to be liberated from written instructions.
I hope you all had the chance to spend some time playing with yarn this weekend, staying safe and warm. If you missed us on Friday or Saturday, come by soon and show us what you’ve been working on. We’re back open today, Sunday the 27th, at our regular business hours. See you there!
