"Catherine's Hat," and more... Happy September!
- Hello group. We've received a lot of nice response about the last
blog entry (the tribute about Catherine's Hat). Several of you asked
where the pattern for Catherine's Hat is available. The pattern was
originally printed in the ROCKING HORSE NEWS in 1999, by special
permission from Catherine.
It is currently available in the book of knitting machine patterns we
sell called "PRETTY AND PRACTICAL." This is a spiral bound book that
features all the patterns, tips, hints, etc. from the ROCKING HORSE
NEWS publication for the years 1995-2003. It has 50+ pages of
garments, gift items, hats, afghans, items for the home, learning
pages, and more. The price for this book is still $20 +$4.99 Priority
Mail shipping (or $2.99 for regular mail). The book is not available
electronically at this time, so I can't email the book. All of the
patterns in the book include instructions to use built-in patterning
capability, like punchcards or electronic built-in patterns, or hand
manipulation can be done.
There was a lot of discussion about the tribute at our store's Knit
Club last Saturday. I was not present, but I've been told that
everyone thought it would be a very nice tribute if we could print
the entire story and reprint the pattern in the next issue of the
ROCKING HORSE NEWS. So we have decided to do this. The next issue
would normally be mailed at the beginning of October, but it will be
available early so it can be given out at our September Seminar.
MORE NEWS: We are pleased to announce that Barb Kuklok will be
showing her "Stained Glass Sewing" technique and samples at the
September Seminar. Barb will be doing this session for a Morning or
Afternoon Assembly, so everyone will be able to see this. Joyce
Anderson has graciously offered to do one of the other Assemblies.
Her knitting and sewing experiences are always great to listen to.
And of course, we are very excited to have Renee from Sheila's Shawls
do a presentation on Thursday evening for our Pre-Seminar session.
Hope to see many people there!
Remember that the $10 discount registration for Entire Seminar
package expires on September 15th.
happy knitting and sewing!
