      Are you still knitting and stitching now that summer is here?

      The month is almost over, and I got a phone call to remind me that nothing has been posted in the Yahoo Group yet this month. (Thanks, Charlene! It's nice to know people out there are paying attention!)

      -------------------------------
      1) KNITTING CAMP

      Camp for 2012 is over, and as usual it was a great time. I've posted some pictures at our Ravelry Group:

      or the full album can be seen here (you should not need a facebook account to see this album):

      ------------------------------
      2) NEW PATTERN: MODERN ROUND YOKES

      One of the Knitting Camp projects was a round yoke using self-patterned yarn or sock yarn. All of the class notes plus instructions on an easy to follow chart and new stitch designs for an updated look are available in a new leaflet.

      MODERN ROUND YOKES, $8.00
      Brother/KnitKing disk for 930 machines and up, $5.00
      DAK CD/E-book, can be available if requested

      The stitch designs on the disks are contemporary and bring the round yoke style into the current decade.

      The yoke can be continued as a sweater or turned into a sweathshirt cardigan, as shown in the Summer issue of the ROCKING HORSE NEWS.

      -------------------------------
      3) ROCKING HORSE NEWS SUMMER ISSUE

      The summer issue is being printed today and will be mailed this week, via first class mail. (It is not available online, sorry!)

      Includes: Cotton Woven Potholder pattern, Pendant Necklace pattern, Passap Afghan/Shawl Project, DesignaKnit 8 download tips, seminar registration forms, Round Yoke Cardigan project, and an idea from Embroidery Camp a few years ago for using real flowers to dye make fabric prints.

      Single copies are $3.95, or subscribe for 1 year for $8.95 (US addresses).
