We are turning 5!!

Can you believe it!? We are so excited that we’re going to start celebrating on June 5th and continue for the whole week!! (Maybe even a little longer!) When we started planning our celebration, we realised just how many talented, local designers and artist Loopies were among our friends, and we asked them if they wanted to party with us. They were on board, because friends, we are going to party!! Stay tuned for some announcements of what we’re going to be doing, and how our amazing locals are going to be involved! (Plus cake, there WILL be cake!)

We’d like to kick things off with this…

Local designer Heidi Kirrmaier  (HeidiKdesigns on Ravelry) describes her shawl “Windward” as “The multiple changes in knitting direction of this piece are akin to the maneuvering required when sailing into the wind, or windward.” As part of our 5th birthday celebration, we will have an exclusive one time only special edition Windward kit, containing all the supplies (minus needles, of course) to create your own “Windward” shawl! But wait, there’s more! On June 11th, we will have two special “Windward” classes taught by Heidi herself! More details to follow very soon, so watch this space!
