Book Group

We've started a book group at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop. Our first meeting was last month, and we read Water for Elephants. I really enjoyed the book a lot.

This month's book is A Thousand Splendid Suns. It is an incredibly emotional book to read. Very powerful.

We meet the 4th Friday of each month from 7-9pm at the shop. Carolyn, who works and teaches at the shop, is leading the group.

Join us as we discuss, eat munchies and knit, of course!

Cobblestone Pullovers

Can you believe how cute these two are?! I finished Brad's Cobblestone Pullover, and he said it's one of the best fitting sweaters I've made him. I think it just looks great on him! The pattern was so well written, and such fun to make. And I love working with Cascade 220; this is one of their tweeds.

I finished Riley's sweater in just one evening; and, as usual, Riley is always a joy to knit for. I'm pretty sure he's happy with his sweater, also! He's never complained about a sweater yet!

Baby Riley

I've been doing some spring cleaning at home, and I came across a couple of Riley's first sweaters. This blue one was the first sweater that I ever made him, the day we brought him home. He was only 1 1/4 tiny and sweet!
And this is one of our first photos of little Riley. So cute! He was all ears!

I love my little dog!
