LYS (Local Yarn Store) & WIP (Work In Progress)

Every knitter has a favorite LYS and mine just happens to be Hilltop Yarn on the top of Queen Anne! Their old location (across the street from their current location) was just amazing. It was an old house converted into the perfect little yarn shop. Their new location isnt quite as quaint but the fabulousness is just the same. First, let's talk window decorations. They are ALWAYS amazing. Thanksgiving featured knitted turkeys. Yes, you read that right. Halloween was a spider knitting as seen below.
I have never entered this knitters mecca without a warm greeting and an outstretched helping hand. Their yarn stock will leave you well equipped for any project but if they don't have what you want they will order it and call you when it gets in. They have a knit night every Wednesday until 9pm & offer several classes for all types of knitters! Visit Hilltop for your daily dose of fiber! http://www.hilltopyarn.com/

I have finally started working on the first project that I will sell on my New Year's Resolution aka my future knits site! I have knitted a few pairs of fingerless gloves and have only followed a pattern once. So far they have all come out pretty fantastic, if I do say so myself! So here I go! I am using some of my most favorite yarn that I have ever knitting with. Knit One, Crochet too's Recycled Cotton yarn in "Earth". Needles: US 5 dpns
I will post when I finish my 1st mitten to start drumming up excitement for the my online knitting shop!

Knit on,
