Show and Tell Friday...

Well, it's Friday again and I have some more wonderful finished projects to show you.

Kori made this hat for her son out of Cascade Heritage sock yarn. The pattern came from the "Not Just Socks" book. Very nice!

Amanda crocheted this clapochet (the crocheted version of the clapotis) out of Berroco Vintage Wool. This will keep her nice and warm this fall.

Daniel made this hat out of Cascade 220 yarn. Amanda so nicely modeled it for us.

And Leslie made Two Old Bags' Lucy bag. I love the cute pin she added.

Enjoy your weekend!

Show and Tell Friday

Have you ever met someone famous? Well, our Melissa went to Savannah last week to celebrate her 15th anniversary with her hubby. And guess who she met? Paula Deen!! Paula recently donated some hams to Second Harvest Food Bank, here in Knoxville. Melissa got to personally thank her for that donation. And speaking of thank yous, I want to thank everyone who donated can goods last week for the National Day of Service and Remembrance. We appreciate you!

Now on to our finished projects...

Kori made this cute bib out of Tahki Cotton Classic yarn. She even brought in one of her bears to display it...and made a preemie cap as well. The pattern is in the One Skein Knitting book which we have in the shop.

Then Wanda brought in this cute child's sweater she made with Plymouth Encore yarn. Very nice!

Melissa brought in a couple of items to share: a sock, a cowl and her clapotis. She's been one busy lady.

Thanks gals for sharing with us.

We have less than a month to go in our Yarn Bowl Challenge with the Alabama shop. If you'd like a quick project that will help out these little guys and gals, then make a preemie cap or two for us. Have a great weekend!

President Obama has asked everyone to do some service for their community. This is just our way of helping out folks who are having trouble putting food on their tables. Thanks to everyone who has helped out in this community charity project. Blessings on your day!

Show and Tell Friday...

Did you know we had a Blue Ribbon winner amongst us? Janie entered some of her knitted items in the Anderson County fair this summer and she won 2 first place ribbons and 1 third place ribbon!

She showed off her shrug made out of Feza Cyprus Mohair and won 1st place. Pattern is Plymouth #1504. Very nice!

And then her child's hat made out of Plymouth Dreambaby also won a 1st place ribbon.

And finally, the helmet liner she made out of Cascade Superwash yarn received a 3rd place ribbon. Congratulations, Janie, on all 3 of your ribbons!

Laura came in wearing her Diamond Patch sweater from Just One More Row. She made it out of the Filatura di Crosa Carioca yarn. Beautiful!

Thanks gals for sharing with us! Be sure to bring in your finished objects for our Show & Tell!
