Bristol Ivy is coming to our knitting guild meeting on May 6! She will be teaching a short rows class for members only. Remember that membership is only $10 for the year, so this is a great value. Spread the word. Note that the library is undergoing some renovations this spring, so we may be moving the meeting to an alternate location. Stay tuned to our Ravelry and Facebook pages for more details.

- I'm itching to dig into this Big Wool and start on some quick winter knits!Ruth Nguyen’s Cornice cowl is a warm embrace of texture and movement, elevated by Quince & Co. Crane's luminous halo and soft hand. Undulating cables take center stage in this sophisticated design, making for a rich accessory that’s perfect to layer on for extra cozy comfort.The amazing dyers at Wonderland Yarns have picked some spooky and fantastical themes for their yarn colorway inspiration and cannot wait for you to see the finished colors.Kairos Shawl casts on at one tip and increases towards the center, where a relaxing textured stitch is worked in two-colors before launching you into the central Kairos panel. A little more texture is worked before decreasing across the second wing of the shawl, working to the opposite tip. Stitches are then picked up along the bottom edge, where a playful striped edging is worked with a beaded picot bind off.Posted @withregram • @craftindustryalliance This week's CIA Member Spotlight is Jennifer Fleck of KnitWit Yarn in Portland, Maine (@knitwityarnshop). This Lotion Bar, from Love + Leche, is best suited to soothe rough hands and feet, chapped lips, painful split fingers and more.
