Greater Milwaukee Knitting Guild

Hi Knitters,
Kelly brought in these two knit hats to Nina's in Chicago last Friday. I love the Sweet Pea Hat in chocolate brown. She is expecting a boy in June so this will be adorable. The Spud & Chloƫ Hoot Hat is behind.

Another quick note, I am getting my Facebook account going. I joined a long time ago and have let it sit quietly. Yesterday I took a bit of time to update and get it going over there. If you're a Facebook person please join me! I will be doing both personal updates and Spud & Chloƫ updates.

Now for some business! Tomorrow, March 9th, I am the guest speaker for the Greater Milwaukee Knitting Guild. The event starts at 7pm. I will be speaking and sharing my trunk show and I will bring along items from all three Itty-Bitty books. Since my husband is driving me to the event I will be able to bring more book samples to share. There will be books for sale and I will be happy to sign your book for you if you'd like.

The event is open for the public. You don't have to be a guild member to attend!

Here is the information for the event:

March 9th, 2010
Bergstrom Hall
Mount Mary College
2900 N. Menomonee River Parkway
Milwaukee, WI
I had a little fun at Nina: a well-knit shop. I have been wanting to try some Madeline Tosh for a long time and they have all kinds of it. I bought a sweater's worth of the dk weight and 2 skeins of the sock weight. I also threw in a few skeins of Malabrigo in the color Sealing Wax and the pencil roving on the side is dreamy. I love that little peppermint tape measure, too. Give Nina a call if you want some, too. They have a huge selection of Madeline Tosh!

Have a good Monday, Knitters. I'll be back soon.
best, susie

Love that chocolate Sweet Pea hat -

I haven't tried Madeline Tosh yet, but have been hearing all kinds of buzz about it lately.

It's great that you're getting Facebook going. Such a great way to access so many people.

Tosh is yummy stuff. I just bought a skein of Tosh Sock and am looking forward to a lovely pair of socks.

I'll be trying Madeline Tosh soon as soon as I'm done w/my mom's alpaca cardigan! Let us know what you think of it. Love Malabrigo; their colors are awesome.
Break a leg at the Guild.

My best friend and I are from Milwaukee and we're coming home this weekend for Spring Break from college at U of M Twin Cities. We're missing you by a few days! Hopefully, we'll get to an event soon!

What a thrill to go to your blog and see a picture of my sweet pea hat and hoot hat!! Thanks, Susan! I love all your patterns--they are so adorable and easy to follow, too!

Although I haven't used my facebook account in a long long time, I just have to add you!

Oow so jealous. I've never used Madelinetosh or Malabrigo and they are both on the top of my stash enhancement list. Enjoy :)
