Saturday at Sheep Thrills: Showing Off Samples & Projects!

Saturday is such a fun time to come to Sheep Thrills!  The store is always bustling with people.  Last Saturday there was a group of knitters at the front of the store in the comfy couch and chair seating.  In the back of the store, some customers and friends of Patti were working on a special (and very exciting) project together.  I set up my table for Crochet Time, which I host on certain Saturdays from 1-3 PM at Sheep Thrills.

Sometimes I’m very busy doing crochet consulting during Crochet Time.  Other times, I can sit with the group and just stitch away.  This week I decided to snap a few pictures for the blog so the readers can get to know us better!

When I saw this beautiful sample, which was knit in lace weight linen yarn, I knew this was a garment that had so many uses.  The colors are beautiful and the knitting was exquisitely done.  I adore this!

And now I introduce the talk of the town –

Everyone is doting on the Dreambaby DK Baby Sweater from Plymouth in Rainbow Version. It’s on the top right in the picture below. Going clockwise, I had to include this darling baby cardi.  What I love about the detail is that the lace work on the side looks like a pocket.  I think this would look great on a baby.  So cute.  And I loved the baby blanket with crocheted edging.  Our friend Angie made that one.  It is so beautiful!

Finally, Instagrammer Bri stopped by to meet friends and knit together.  It was great to meet the group.  In the picture below, Bri hugs her yarn.  🙂 (I then saw about 24 hours later on Instagram that she had made major headway on her Campside Shawl.

She’s talented!
