Our First Giveaway~Sugar Lane

The first week in the new shop was AMAZING! We are looking forward to our big Christmas Crawl that starts this Friday.

Today I want to introduce you to Megan the creator of Sugar Lane patterns. She has an Etsy shop called Sugar Lane and you can find her as SugarLaneKnits on Ravelry.

She offers unique and adorable hat patterns that range in sizes fm Newborn to Adult Small.

Her first foray into designing came about because she wanted to make the perfect preschool hat for her little boy. She couldn't find anything close to what she had invisioned in her mind- so she made up a pattern. Voila! The Highland Argyle hat was born. She got so many compliments and custom requests from other Mommies that she thought she would start a custom order knitting business. Then she remembered that she had 5 kids...kids who need clean laundry and like to eat and stuff. So knitting for the masses was OUT! Things just kind of evolved from the Highland Argyle hat and now she has 29 hat designs in her portfolio. She loves being an indie designer!

Today our giveaway is the Highland Argyle hat pattern and 2 skeins of Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Superwash worsted weight wool.

To enter just leave a comment below. Deadline to enter is December 1st. Winner will be announced December 2nd.

If you like this pattern go check out her other great patterns at Sugar Lane.

The first month of the shop being open was a success! People are so excited to have a local yarn shop in town. We had our first Learn to Knit class and many classes are being planned for the near future.

We are starting our first knitalong. We are going to be making a square each month and after 12 months you will have your own afghan. We will be using the book “60 Easy-To-Knit Pattern Stitches Combine To Create Sampler Afghans”. Our first square will begin Monday, June 21st, from 4-6 at the shop. On the third Monday of each month we will start a new square. You are welcome to join in online as well.

If you need assistance picking or special ordering your yarn I am at the shop every day from 3:30-6. If you are out of town and would like to order a book, yarn or needles, please email shabbysheepyarns@yahoo.com. The book costs $8.95 plus S&H (tax may apply if you live in NM).

Now open

Welcome to the new yarn shop in town! We are in the beginning stages, but we are looking forward to providing new yarns, classes and charity opportunities in the community and online.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Liberty and I started knitting 3 1/2 years ago. At the time I had 3 little boys and one big boy (my husband), and now we have 4 sons. I decided I needed something for myself so I learned how to knit. It was a lifesaver for me. When the boys would go to bed at night I would sit down and knit. It was a way for me to totally relax and unwind. At the time we lived in Oregon and I was blessed to have a yarn shop nearby that was able to help me through my mistakes and teach me new techniques. I want to do the same for others. Wherever we are at in our journey of handcrafting I want the shop to provide an opportunity to beginners through advanced. I want people to have a place to come and take a seat, relax and unwind.

Please come in and touch and feel our luxurious line of yarns. If there is a yarn that you are interested in us carrying please put your suggestion in the suggestion box.

Once a month we will have a different charity to focus on to knit or crochet items for. This month our charity focus is the Ronald McDonald house in Lubbock, Texas. We are making baby blankets. You can knit, crochet or sew a baby blanket and just bring it into the shop. If you want to participate and you live far away then you can mail it to the shop as well.

I am so excited to meet fellow knitters and crocheters. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
