Vivian Høxbro teaches for the Merc

Saturday and Sunday, the internationally known knitting designer was in Columbus teaching classes for Knitter's Mercantile. Saturday, Vivian taught a class on Domino Knitting.
Sunday's class was on Shadow knitting.
Here's a picture of Sunday's class working on the class sample.

Why, yes! Knitter's Mercantile does have a binder of her available designs that you can review. The new designs are coming out in September of 2006. If you see a kit you want, you should really put in an order for one. You can see some of the designs at Vivian's website found at Vivian Høxbro.

New at the Merc...

New at the Merc...
The REALLY new thing at The Merc is the new glorious sock yarn from Claudia called(drum roll) "Buckeye". I'll bet you can't guess the color! It will NOT last long so don't wait until...

In addition to the new yarn we are making the book of the week Mission Falls "Wee Ones" and "just kidding". Wonderful patterns for the cutest little one you know!!!!!

Sallie & Jan are attending TNNA this week in Indianapolis. Some of the new yarns that they have already seen are really fun. But, while they are gone, come into the store and keep the staff busy and not lonely!

Wish Lists

So you have a birthday or anniversary coming up?
Want to help make it easy for people to get you the "perfect" gift?

Did you know that Knitter's Mercantile has a "wish list" book?
Yes, we do! You can come in and fill out your list of items (yarn, needles, books, magazines, patterns) that you'd enjoy getting as a gift from friends and loved ones.

The book is available for additions and browsing anytime the shop is open. It's one the table near those comfortable couches. Fill out your sheet of gift ideas and let your friends and family know its there. There's always the idea of a "gift certificate" available in any amount from $5 to "the skys the limit."

(and if you know someone who would get you a gift certificate for "the skys the limit" please let them know I'll be happy to take a bit of the sky. **grin**)
