Sit, Sip, & Knit!

Coffee and Yarn! They go well together, don't you think? There were about thirteen of us at Starbucks last night that agreed on that!

It was SSK! No, not slip slip knit...

Sit, Sip, & Knit!

Every second Monday of the month, Glitter Knitter Steven and other knitting enthusiasts from the area gather at the Starbucks in Rosemount to knit, enjoy tasty java, find inspiration in other's creativity, and see what's up and coming at the Yarn Garage.

Steven showed us a virtual plethora of beautiful yarns and what you could make with them - there were shrugs, shawls, scarves, hats, and more. Of course, everything was dazzling and each showed his personal style - that which embodies his self proclaimed title of Glitter Knitter.

Not to mention the colors! Such bright and fun new colors.

Speaking of bright and fun, don't you just love this? It's a sweater Steven's working on made from bright chunky yellow yarn doubled with Police "Crime Scene - Do Not Cross" tape!

He's knitting on what he calls "size 1000 needles." They are huge! If you look closely at the bottom of the picture you can see the point from one of them.

A bizarre idea, yes, but so fun.

He also brought some new knitting literature to entice and inspire us, and also to teach.

And to top it off, we were serenaded! How cool is that?

Steven's friend Bob, (who does the store's website and also knits) is a wonderful violinist and charmed us with his beautiful musical stylings as we knit and socialized.

What a great atmosphere that created!

Here's Violinist and Glitter Knitter together, doing what they love best - fiddling and knitting!

If you're in the Twin Cities area and you want to come, the next one is March 12. Bring your knitting and join us from 6:30-9 at the Starbucks in Rosemount at the corner of 42 & 3. There's a Creative Cost of $5.

Hope to see you there!

That yellow creation of Stevens looks totally awesome!
