African Violets - May's Limited Edition Color!
(available in Shepherd Sock, Shepherd Sport, Shepherd Worsted, and Lion and Lamb.)

This month's limited edition color reminds me of the African Violets that my grandparents grew indoors. Back in Springfield, Virginia, my grandmother and grandfather had the most amazing outdoor garden... close to an acre of land devoted to cucumbers, peanuts, lettuce, beans and more. I'll never forget the summers I spent as a child there - breaking beans, canning tomatoes, and playing pinochle in the basement! Not only did they have the most amazing outdoor garden, but also an incredible indoor one. This is where they grew plants like the African Violets. They were always so beautiful - and I never could get over the fact that they flourished so well inside (and I was always fascinated by the purple lightbulbs). Well, my grandmother passed away a number of years ago, but this particular grandpa is still alive and kicking (now in Pennsylvania) - and I even saw a few African Violets in his windowsill the last time i visited. This month's for you, grandpa. Thanks for the great memories (and for teaching me that milk always tastes better with 2 ice cubes)! :)

Here are a few more ideas for Mom, or to celebrate Spring arriving, or whatever holiday you like!

Cats Magical Markers
Cat's Magical Markers

We've been waiting for over a year and they are finally here!! At $17, these markers are perfect for sock knitting and were designed to accompany Cat's Book New Pathways for Sock Knitters. The set includes 6 easy to use, brass plated stitch markers labeled from A to F. Designed to fit up to US needle size 6 (4mm).

Top of the World
Knitting on Top of the World

This new book by Nicky Epstein is full of patterns, techniques, and ideas from all around the world. With projects ranging from simple to super complex, you're sure to find something you like! Sandy was thrilled to see this book arrive. She promptly took her copy for "homework" on the very same day we opened the box!

Filati Magazine
New Filati Magazines

Interweave Summer 09
Interweave Summer 09

Speaking of fresh ideas, have you had a chance to browse the latest issue of Interweave Knits? I finally took a few minutes last night and sat down with my issue - and was overjoyed to see an article on how to create jogless stripes in the round. Yay! That's the biggest issue i have with striping things (hats, mittens, socks)... and i was so excited to read a solution!! thanks, interweave :)

Sprout
Sprout

If you get a chance, pick up a hank of Classic Elite's new summer yarn, Sprout. It's 100% Organic Cotton that knits up quickly (and softly) on a US 10 needle. I love it (of course, i love knitting on bigger needles)! If you're looking for Sprout project ideas, you'll find plenty in their new book Johns Bay.
