Featured Shop in Vogue Knitting

Share Button

Color me tickled!*  We are the featured shop in the Holiday 2009 issue of Vogue Knitting!

How cool is that!  (sorry the photo is a tad blurry)

Since I was interviewed for the article, I knew it was coming.  Still, that was several weeks ago and I had sort of forgotten about it and I hadn’t mentioned it to anyone on the staff.  They were so excited!

What has been really cool has been the reaction by our customers.  They are all so pleased to see “their” LYS featured.  Want to know the true cherry on top moment?  When I started getting a few emails from our mail order customers expressing how excited they were to see us featured.   My thanks to Cheryl Krementz for taking my words and creating a beautiful article.

Although my favorite part of this isse is page 26, there are other great articles and of course some very nice designs.  In particular, you definitely should check out this issue’s KnitLife article about Veronik Avery and written by the lovely Carol Sulcoski.   It’s a great view into Veronik’s world and how she came to not only become a knitwear designer, but also how her new yarn line, St. Denis came to be.

Designs in the issue feature color techniques, chunky yarns, gift ideas as well as some glamorous designs in both pale-barely-there colors that are elegant and sophisticated, as well as some that are knit in powerful plum – a hot color for the fall/winter season.

Of course, there’s a lot more in the issue – be sure to pick up a copy!

One final note – I often talk here on the blog and on the podcast about our hockey playing boys and how that basically dominates our life from early fall through March.  Hockey parents are crazy and we try to keep the boys and ourselves grounded.  Somehow, I think Pixie would beg to differ with our level of success on that front:

Yup – there she is, in the store, stitching new velcro onto Jackson’s goalie pads.  We  have definitely gone over the edge.

    Hi, I would love to see a picture of Pixie's Summer petals cardigan—I'm just starting the first sleeve. Crochet is my first love and I was thrilled when you decided to do a Crochet-a-Long on the podcast. i am a faithful listener of your podcast. We (a friend and I) are planning on going to Stitches next weekend in Hartford. Look forward to seeing you there! Ruth, Windsor, VT
