It’s the last day of My Favorite Wooly Things! Can you believe it? You’ve seen kitten soft alpaca yarn that you’ll want to keep around just to pet. You’ve seen yummy smelling lotion bars that you’ll want to sniff. Excellent crochet hooks. Awesome knitting needles. And yes, there was even some wonderful wool yarn!
If you’ve ever heard me talk about gauge swatches, then you know that I’m a little persnickety about them. (By the way, persnickety is a fun word to say!) And by persnickety, I mean, you should be making gauge swatches whenever the item you are knitting or crocheting is fitted (blankets, scarves, and amigurumi are exempt). But I digest…
It’s Monday! Please pardon my enthusiasm on a Monday morning but today is the first day of My Favorite Wooly Things! The first item I’d like to share with everyone comes all the way from Rhode Island. It’s handmade from something sheep-y but it’s not wool.
A little booze! Our signature cocktail for this month’s Happy Hour events is the French 75. Named after the French 75mm field gun, this is serious firepower for your next round of knitting! It’s a delicious blend of gin, lemon juice, sugar, and topped with some fizzy champagne.
