The summer is flying by and school will be starting soon. The weather has been so beautiful and warm that I hope you have time to enjoy it. Summer in Syracuse is a great place to be. Lakes, rolling hills, state parks, rivers, reservoirs, golfing , kayaking, swimming, camping, hiking and of course knitting in our down time. We have been busy here with our annual Stitch and Pitch night at Alliance stadium, our MaggiKnits trunk show premier, our soon to be day of knitting at the beautiful Jephson Estate and our Shibui Mix brunch in September. Many of you are organized already for the holidays at the end of the year and have started great projects such as Shibui MIx poncho’s, MadelineTosh tea leaf cardigans, Rowan Big Wool cowls, and the Blue Sky Alpaca Metalico sweaters. Our classes continue to be busy with opportunities to learn new techniques and skills. As Fall yarns start to arrive, this is the time to make decisions and enjoy these beautiful fibers. August will be a big month in the Miller household as Mary leaves for college and my sons return from Australia. In between organizing bedrooms and packing Mary up, I am knitting my 2 MaggiKnits projects and starting a new one for Stitches East in October. We would love to help you pick our your next project. We have so many new patterns to choose from that you may find it difficult to make a decision! Nancy, Chris and I are here to help. See you soon.
