   Hi, glad to be back again.  My first news is that Pearls Knitting Parlor is now open in their new location.  I 
   am happy to report that  I will be starting my classes of Beginning Knitting and Beginning Crcheting on
   Tuesday, April 17,  Please call the shop for detals - (818) 707 1275.  More advanced classes will be
   added as we go along.  would love to have the opportunity to introduce you to these two wonderful crafts.
    For you knitters who are not beginners but may need help with a complicated stitch or pattern  or need a
    pattern modified or even  designed just for you, I will be holding a workshop every Thursday afternoon 
    from 1 to 4pm.  no appt ncessary.   Drop in and visit us.

    I recently enjoyed a surprising experiece i would love to share with you. During my knitting years in
    San Francisco, in addition to the shop, I  designed patterns and manufactured knitting bags called Texas
    Coin Bags, both of which  we shipped to yarn shops all over the country.  The last shipment of bags
     was in the early 1982s.  So image my surprise earlier this year when I received in e-mail from Centralia,   
     Wa telling me that the sennder  had bought  at a local thrift store, a Jani Bag in perfect condition, including
      the original tags.  Her e-msail told me how much she was enjoying it.  I was thrilled'

       Hope you'l be able to pop in the ne shop and get acquainted  and check out what's new.

Welcome back loyal bloggers and greetings to new drop-ins.  Sorry for being among the missing for so long.  Happy to report I did not pass away or become incapacitated, it has just been the result of a very busy year including a move back to California after 10 eventful and fun years in Colorado with our son David and his family, his wonderful wife Cheryl (who originally opened this blog for me) and their two children Lauren and Ethan. 

Shortly after our return here we discovered we were becoming great-grandparents for the first time and on Nov. 14th, Logan Shane Denihan made his debut.  So our comng back was great timing.

Getting back to the world of knitting and bringing you up to date, I will be doing workshops and classes at a shop in Westlake Village Ca.  Pearls Knitting Parlor has been open in Thousand Oaks Ca for three years and will be re-opening in Westlake Village in April.  Meanwhile I woud be happy to hear from you and especially knitters or crocheters who have run into a problem and need help.  Be happy to help if I can. 

Happy Valentines Day to all , there is still time to knit a cotton washcloth and wrap it around a cute little heart soap to convey your Valentine wishes. 

Happy Knitting and or Crocheting to all.
