Marty has been an enthusiastic champion of the Shop since from Day One. Of course, if you know Marty at all you know that when she commits, she does so with enthusiasm. But in the beginning we joked that , enthusiasm aside, she and I were the LEAST knowledgeable people in town about the art of knitting.
But you cannot stop Marty. When she sets her sights on something…well, it gets done and gets done well.
Her knitting evolution has been joyful to watch. She and I, both, have grown much with the gentle and patient support of Kathy, Ann and Lynn. Marty knits for herself and the people she loves and she knows exactly what she wants. And every accomplishment has been perfection.
This Fall, she saw a picture of the Albany Alpaca Cowl, a Blue Sky Fibers pattern knit with their Baby Alpaca. She HAD to have it.
WOW, was she right!! Her finished piece is divine! both pics here are her finished cowl! She used the colors in the pattern (though that is not required) reminiscent of the historic Hudson Bay Blanket. It takes seven skeins of the sport weight yarn ($11 per skein). We have created a kit for ease of purchase that includes yarn, pattern and a Knit1 project bag. Or you are welcome to choose your own fabulous colors.
Our motto is: You can never go wrong if you put your trust in Marty!
