A Day of Knitting

What a great day! Started off at the new knitting store in Carleton Place called Just Knitting . 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.

 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.
