Head 'em up & move 'em out!!






It has been a very busy week here at Chez Ernst. We are getting ready to do the Stitches Mid-West show this coming weekend in Chicago......Then,
I arrive at home after the Chicago show on Monday evening and leave on Wednesday to drive down to Santa Monica, CA to do the Fabulous Fiber Fest.
Alot of work has gone into getting ready for these two shows.


Meanwhile....
We have created a brand new product. Glass circular knitting needles. They are a Dream to work with!! Not to mention Beeeutiful!!! I have been making one of Sivia Harding's Diamond Fantasy Shawls with them and, as a knitter, I am in love with them!!!
They will be very reasonably priced at $20.00 a set.
They haven't gone up on the Website as of yet so you will have to contact us through the blog if you want to be the first on your block to own your own set.


I am going to be sharing the booth (#1011) with Trish Andersen. She's a wonderful hand-spinner and a lovely traveling companion. I do hope those of you that will be coming to Stitches Mid-West will come by and say hello.

Michael and I will be at the Fabulous Fiber Fest. You will have to ask at the door for the location of our booth.

I am looking forward to both of these shows. It is always a pleasure to get to spend time with the wonderful people who come, both customers and vendors.

I scored this week when a package arrived from Lisa Souza with this incredible bundle of yummy yarn inside. Wow, it's great to have friends!! Thanks Lisa! ;) I am going to make a very large felted bag out of it....it could be a suitcase, who knows. I wish that I had it done already!!



Also made a felted purse this week, well I finished it. It's the Barley Twist Bag from Holly's felted bags. You can see it at the shows. It's Very Cute!!

I leave you with a Tiger Lily from our garden. They are one of my very favorite summer flowers!!
I hope that you all have a wonderful two weeks. I will be thinking of you, taking picture for my blog and having a hell of a good time. Thanks to all of you that write comments. I love hearing from you. Take good care of yourselves and enjoy Summer.

Sheila, I absolutly LOVE your new circulars! Thanks for letting me test a pair out, it was/is pure pleasure. Okay - how much do I love them? I have dropped my Addi's to use your needles. The glass feels better in my hand, and the points are much sharper than the Addi's so I can pick up stitches easier with yours.

Yup, you have got a winner there. The points are spectacular...perfect for digging in there and doing YO, K7 tog stuff (just thinking of that stitch makes me sweat but it could be done with these needles.) Much success. :o)))

I can't wait to see what they look like! How do they compare weightwise to rosewoods? Either way, I'm absolutely going to have to try a pair.

I LOVE my new circs! They are just so absolutely gorgeous. Wow! Thank you! And I have to say too, the cable part is the softest and best I've ever come across.
