They had a great sale section with patterns, yarn and this R2 magazine for less than $1.00
I managed to resist purchasing Classic Elite Paintbox and Brown Sheep Burly Spun - both HANDPAINTED and perfect for more felted bags.
Fiberworks is hosting "Toledo's Annual Super Bowl of Knitting", a fundraiser for Mom's House and Toledo Children's Hospital on Sunday, Feb. 4 from 1 - 4 PM with contests, door prizes, demos, free classes and MORE. I just may have to make a trip back !!
I added two books to my wish list:
"RIBBON STYLE" by Cheryl Potter
and "EASY AFGHANS FOR KNITTERS" edited by Jeanne Stauffer
Next stop, Yarn Company,
where the owner showcased her original patterns and samples of purses and scarves knit with Berroco Suede and Snowflake by Sirdar.
I purchased the "PURSE CHECK" pattern whose look and feel resembles the soft and trendy
I also purchased a skein made up of 5 or 6 different fabrics together, enough to make a scarf with some eyelash mixed in ...... by M.P.'s Folly..... "Each ball a unique work of art waiting to happen"....
At Baubles, Bangles & Beads, I made a simple keychain, by selecting some beads to go between the heart.
Quite a fun day for me here in Northern Ohio !!!

BRANDY the "crochetnut"
Brandy has chosen the "Weekend Crafter" book as her prize.
The entries for my New Years Knitting Resolution contest were so numerous and interesting that I have decided to choose 2 more winners......
2nd place JENNIFER the
"Knit Wit Girly"
and a fellow Cleveland knitter
(click on her name to see her blog) whose goal is
"to tackle double points to be able to use them w/o fear"
has chosen "Knit Hats"
and 3rd place BABS
(coincindentally, a member of my Cleveland Northcoast Knitting Guild but she lives in Tennessee) has chosen Debbie Bliss Cotton Knits.
Babs resolves "to finish UFO's and current knitted projects before starting another project."
I had 88 responses (emails and comments combined) to my
New Years Knitting Resolution contest.
The most common response was my resolution too...
"Knit from my stash and don't buy any more yarn."
The most unique response was from Jill who said,
"To share my love of knitting with the curious."
Several knitters are ready to take on a new, challenging technique and many of us are dedicated to knitting more for charity this year.
THIS WAS GREAT FUN !!
STAY TUNED FOR MORE CONTESTS IN THE FUTURE !!
Thanks to everyone for participating and your support and enthusiam for my blog !!
