A Day of Knitting

What a great day! Started off at the new knitting store in Carleton Place called Just Knitting .http://www.justknitting.ca/ Mondays are sit and knit.  A beautiful and inspiring place to visit with high ceilings ,original moldings and  french doors. The owner, Kelly , has a scrumptious selection of  yarns , a lot of Canadian product in this store.

Then the day ended with the first knitting guild meeting after the summer holidays.  The talented Anna Dalvi gave a talk on her new book Shaping Shawls.  This book is a must have for any lace knitter. It provides patterns for knitting her shawls, and information on how to create your own design.  What I love so much about her designs is the fact that she takes folktales and translates them into her work. There is always an interesting story associated with each piece.http://www.knitandknag.com/the-blog/

 Kelly, the owner of Just Knitting will be carrying Anna's book as of tomorrow!

And what have I been knitting today?  The Black Veil from VAMPIRE KNITS, out of Patons Bamboo and Silk. A little something to wear when out under the cover of night.
