Nancy hosted a Dye Workshop this past weekend and had a lot of fun making pretty yarn!

Kelie finished Knit Your Love by Martina Behm and was very happy with the whole project. It was knitted from a handspun Merino/Tencel blend in a pink colorway.

She's continuing work on her Adriana by Coco Knits using Plymouth Linaza. Her Follow Your Arrow 2 will be put back into the knitting rotation once she can figure out where she stopped in the pattern.

Nancy finished her Flutterby sweater knitting out of Louisa Harding Noema yarn while standing in a really long line. She used short rows to bring the back neckline up a little to help the sweater fit better on her shoulders.

The Western Slope Tee from Interweave Knits Summer 2015 is the knitalong going on at the store. There are a lot of enhancements to the pattern happening, stop by the store to see the fun and join in!

The Knit Surfers are enjoying all the live music this summer, get out to partake in some of the energy!

The San Diego Yarn Crawl is in September 17 – 20. There will be an interactive tote bag with a fun game – Call the store at 760-436-6119 to reserve yours, they will sell out.

Kelie is excited about going to the opening day at the Del Mar Racetrack. She has a fancy hat ready for the festivities! Her corset top needed some rejuvenation so some research went in to replacing the boning.

The next Knitalong is happening! It's from the Summer 2015 Interweave Knits issue and is called the Western Slope Tee. Call or visit the store to reserve your spot and knitalong with others on this gorgeous pattern.

Nancy is happy to be working on her Noema sweater again. There are lots of beautiful colors of this yarn and the sweaters have been turning out goergously!

Kelie is done with her Peasant Blouse sweater and is looking forward to wearing it soon. She's working on her Adriana by Coco Knits and Knit Your Love by Martina Behm.

A huge rainbow of Unicorn Tails are at Common Threads. Camille is knitting a Leftie using them as a sample for the store.

The yarn representative from Noro visited Common Threads and Nancy ordered all the colors of "Rainbow Roll" pencil roving. Fun to knit with, easy to spin - coming in September.

The Knit Surfers enjoyed a freak thunderstorm at the beginning of the month. Lots of summer happenings going on!

Tour de Fleece starts July 4 and goes until July 26. The Ravelry group where it all happens can be found at Tour de Fleece. Kelie always gets better at spinning during the Tour and enjoys watching the projects on the Ravelry page.

Nancy enjoyed visiting Poway at the San Diego Knitters guild. She saw our friend Julie who is letting her display the Aisling shawl she just finished out of Anzula yarn.

The TKGA conference is coming up July 22-25 in San Diego. If you're going to be in the area, stop by the store to say hi!

Nancy is anxious to get the beads on her Summer Boxy Top. She wants to make some tank tops for the hot, muggy summer we've been having.

Some small projects that are easy to make for a lot of people are Tea Toters by Julie Tarsha and Earbud pouches by Mary Keenan.

Current Projects: Kelie's almost done with her Peasant Blouse, only a little more left to do on the second sleeve. Nancy is slowly but surely making progress on her Noema sweater.

Nancy had fun on with the dye class the last weekend in June. She dyed a skein of Abracadabra, a light sensitive yarn that changes color in the sun. Kelie has a pattern she wants to try with that yarn called Dressed up in Love by Lauren Riker.
