One day I was reading Homestyle the Friday supplement in the Detroit Free Press and I saw an article about a new local yarn shop. The owner was an attorney/knitter turned entrepreneur. I am always up for a yarn shop adventure, so my knitting buddy Linda and I hopped in the car to explore. We opened the door and said, "Candy store!" It was filled with the high end yarn I love. Blue Heron, Malabrigo, and some I had never before seen. I came home with many of the beautiful pink yarns for my Survivor Shawls. When checking out the owner ask me about all the single skeins of pink yarn. When she learned about my Survivor Shawls, she gave me a discount!😃
One day Linda and I decided we needed a yarn tour which included Knitting On The Fringe. We drove up in front of the shop, turned off the car, opened the car door only to be confronted by an empty shop. We panicked! One of our favorite LYSs closed. Linda got out her iPhone and Googled "Knitting On The Fringe." Eureka! It had only moved.
We hopped in the car and off we went. Oh, by the way, Knitting On The Fringe is in Commerce Township. When we got to the new shop and were thrilled. One of the things Knitting On The Fringe does is put together adorable little kits with unique patterns and yarns. This scarf is called Thick 'n Thin. It is made with a lace weight mohair and a ribbon yarn. You need double pointed or circular needles because you knit three rows with lace weight then one row of ribbon. Three rows of lace weight then one row of ribbon. You have to slide the knitting to which ever end the yarn is you need to pick up.
I have purchased many of the little kits Knitting On The Fringe puts together. She has a great eye for style, color and design. In my next post I will showcase the best idea I got from Knitting On The Fringe.
