August Accessories

Don't sweat, knit small stuff!


July has been a scorcher but historically, August is our hottest month. Rather than swelter with a lap full of heavy wool, why not consider making some small accessories? We’re talking about hats, headbands, lace scarves, gloves, socks and of course, summer shawls. Oh, and how about some knitted jewelry? Frances Lunney has designed this lovely concentric circle neckpiece for us and you can download the pattern on Ravelry. They don't take much yarn so your sock scraps might be enough and they are fairly easy and ever so quick. If you don't have access to Ravelry, we have the pattern for you in the store.

Inside the store on August 1st will be David Halverson who will have his eclectic sculptures, prints and digital art prints on display. Some of the pieces will be for sale. Outside the front door, the music students of Dawn Fitzpatrick are pleased to be singing and playing at Mustard Seed Dreams for the August 1st – First Friday Art Walk. Students will be performing different genres of music from Broadway musicals to popular hits from the past and present. There will be individual, as well as ensemble performances. Some of the students have been studying and performing for several years, while others are first timers. This is a wonderful opportunity for friends, family and the community to enjoy talented young musicians. The performers are: Arwen Baxter, Jordan Berry, Makinzie Berry, Caitlyn Callaghan, Connor Fitzpatrick, Amaia Gabiola, Miren Gabiola, Paige Shouse, Lauren Smith, and Gabriel Viola.

If there is a charge for the pattern, you can pay for it in the store and we will do the work for you, either print out the pattern or send it to you via email.

Beginning Knit

Deb Reams is putting together a pattern for a scarf using Ella Rae's Seasons yarn that will help beginners learn basic and decorative stitches while making a garment that is not only beautiful but useful as well. Seasons is a wool/acrylic blend that is soft and subtley shaded to best show off this interesting scarf.
