Local dyer needed for inventory yarns in the Shoppe

Tips and Techniques-
How to wear shawls! Talked about shawl cuffs, pins, tucking the tails under- wrapping the shawl crossed around the waist or around your shoulders, tied in the back for a shrug look
Pink Knits video for the "flick knitting" technique
Showed how a split stitch looks when knit, and discussed how to repair.
When undoing a hank of yarn, check the ties! If they are crossed, there's a tangled mess in your future.

Yarns Discussed-
Brediculous, Dream in Color, and Icemelon's Stash- fingering weight yarn, mixed colors for shawls
