Supporting the 3 Day Walk for the Cure!

A friend of mine, Anna, from my local knitting group is planning on walking in the Breast Cancer 3 day this year. I have created a  button on my sidebar and hope that some of you will consider supporting her, and donating to this very important cause. She’ll walk 60 miles over the course of three days with thousands of other women and men. The net proceeds will support breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment through Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.

To that end.. all the proceeds from my  pattern sales in the month of April will go to support Anna’s efforts!

Please, spread the word, and if you would like a button to put on your blog or website email me at Denise at Knitchat dot com and I will be glad to give you the code to do that!

Great Connections and a ‘Smidge’ of Knitting..

Azia and I went to Wine and Wool today. It was rather small, but I understand there was some difficulty when the main person organizing the event had to step down. We also got there late in the day so I am not sure if people had already left or not.

Made a great connection though! I met the owner of the new Yarnia shop! Melissa. She is super nice. She had a lot of great yarns there, and it sounds like the shop is going to be great!! A cafe, classrooms, and yarn of course! Looks like I will be working on switching the Stitch n’  Bitch group to a new location! She was very receptive to us meeting there..  (yes Ashley.. you are double doomed!!)

She also had two things at the festival that I have been dying to get, but really didn’t want to pay the shipping on to order online.. The Lucy Bag Pattern, (I need to do something with all the wool I have since I can’t really wear it!) and the The Knitter’s Handy Guide to Yarn Requirements. It is awsome!! I don’t know what I have done without it!!

I whipped this up last night on my knitting board..


I needed a serious break from work knitting!! And this sure fit the bill.

I need to weave in the ends, and maybe I will wear it to church tommorrow.

I also made yogurt.. Kansas will be beaming at that! Hopefully it will be good!

All in all A good day..I’m energized…how’s about you?

PS. The fall sale on my patterns will continue through the end of October! Remember all you have to do to get $1 off each pattern is to enter the code fallsale and it will give you the discount! Enjoy!

Stash Reallocation…ie. Sale…

A basket full of knitting boards!I am taking a day off from some ‘work’ knitting to regroup and reorganize and do some jobs I have neglected over the last few weeks days. 

I went to the local craft shop that is closing because I needed buttons, but they were out! I really wasn’t going to buy anything but then I spotted this basket that is perfect for keeping my knitting boards organized. Then I saw they were selling some shop fixtures including some great metal bins that would be perfect for keeping my stash in! Better than the flimzy ones I have now so I am re-allocating some stash, and hoping to cover the cost of the bins at the same time!

So here goes: (and don’t forget my  Fall Sale on patterns, simply put the code fallsale and you get $1.00 off!)

I have a few of the same items.. that I thought I had found new homes for but fell through the cracks!

I prefer PayPal for payment, but I can deal with other forms of payment. Check or money order.

I am letting my AJAL go.. it is a 30″  regular gauge AJAL from Deccor Accents. I am asking $40.00 +shipping it can be seen up there in the basket. It is the one with the cotter pins.  One cotter pin near the end of the board got bent but it is looking fine now..
