Beautiful Creation!!!

As I was at the kitchen table, I saw this beautiful butterfly on my cone flower! I also noticed a hummingbird at them also, but couldn't get a picture of him :-( . I absolutely LOVE this time of year (spring, also!!-actually I LOVE all the seasons-guess that is a good thing I live in Wisconsin :-)). God is so good to us to allow us to view all his creations!

Feels like Christmas in the studio!!

I have seen most of my yarn reps for the fall and winter yarns and supplies!! Now the beautiful yarns start arriving and I must find room on the shelves for all the BEAUTIFUL yarns. And of course I want to use it all and make something from every yarn!!! :-(
Some of the new yarns are Rowan Kaffe Fassett colourscape chunky and the ever popular Regia design line sock yarn by Kaffe Fassett in more new colorways.
From Knit One Crochet Too I received new merino/bamboo blends-this would make beautiful sweaters or shawls and the ever popular Alpaca yarn -fingering weight for shawls and scarves. These yarns makes me want to spend all my time knitting!!! And I don't even consider myself THE knitter!!
I am working on my newsletter for the fall/winter schedule so check back often for available classes.

Flat Feet sock of the month

This week fall seemed to be in the air but summer is not giving up yet :-) but is still is not to early to start thinking about making socks!!
Flat Feet by Conjoined Creations sock of the month club has arrived. Each shop that has signed up to do the "sock of the month" receives 8 pair of socks for that month. This month the sock yarn is in fall colorways and each sock is unique & different and no two colors/pairs will be exactly the same. It is recommended you use a size 2 or 3 needle for knitting the socks. This makes a very portable/fun project for taking along to bring kids back to school.
I can't believe it is almost time for school to begin! I take my son, Daniel back on Saturday. WOW, time just goes way toooooooo fast!!
In my last post we were headed to Wisconsin State Fair! Daniel did really GREAT!! He was even interviewed by Gus Gonorski from channel 6 TV. He did a great job on the interview and even got quite a compliment from his older brother who is an announcer on the radio. Daniel won Grand plus Reserve Grand for 2 of his llamas. He showed 5 llamas at the fair. He was VERY busy!!
well, enough updates for now.
hope you have a very good Sunday and enjoy the beautiful weather!
