Stash Bash

Friday, December 31, 2010

Happy end of 2010.  Sincerely hope for a happy and hopefully better 2011.  As part of the holiday happenings, our workshop group,  celebrated at the Denver Puppet Theatre on Monday, December 30th with a luncheon followed by a "Stash Bash".  We all brought yarns from our stashes that were left-over or yarns or tools or books that we had no further plans for as our contribution to  the bash.  We looked over all the goodies and took whatever appealed from others stashes and all went home happy.  We plan to do this again .  The puppet theatre owner had such a good time, she is sponsoring another bash January 27 (a Thursday) from 4-7  You are welcome to join us.  Check with their web site for more details.
As one of my New Years resolutions I am going to take much better care of my blog.  Again hope your holidays were happy.

Knits by Jani: Now on Ravelry Too!

Thursday, March 4, 2010

I'm excited to announce that my Ravelry Design Shop is now open. To find me on Ravelry CLICK HERE. My username is KNITSBYJANI or look for Jani Fellows. I have added the first of a series of new popular designer patterns (see picture at left) and I am really excited to introduce them through Ravelry. Let's connect!

In Other Knitting News...

I recently heard from a workshopper of mine who is a Special Education teacher. Her doctor attributed her recent rapid and complete recovery from a bone-breaking fall to her constant knitting while in the hospital.

As a result of hearing that there is a research study about the positive meditative impact of knitting, she has taught her 26 special needs students to knit. She reports amazingly calming affects on her 12 Autistic boys.

So not only do we get wonderful knitted items from this art but a wonderful dose of serenity at the same time.

By the way, we are still in need of Hats for the Troops, which project (K4OT, Knit for Our Troops). we began almost two years ago and have sent more than 14,000 hats to our troops overseas so far. If you haven't participated in this program you can get info and pattern online at the library website.
