Wall to wall knitting

This week was so packed with knitters that seats were few and far between. Steven had so many people there that we only showed a few samples of new yarn. There were many new faces which is great to see. Just to give you an idea of how packed it's a shot of the store.. Can you find Steven?

We did watch Steven do a great lesson on how to create jogless stripping. When working in two or more colors in the round, you often have a "step" from one color to the next that gives the impression of a seam in your work. This is annoying to most people, so Steven showed the novices as well as the knitters of experience a simple way to avoid this.

Also, those of you who want to do some charity knitting, Mary is in need of hats, mittens and scarves. Sizes should be for 5 and under. They're going to children of need in Northern Wisconsin. So, if you're interested you can drop them off at the Yarn Garage by December 16th.
