Knit This, Purl That!


Recently I was invited to teach at a wonderful yarn shop Knit This, Purl That! in Pleasanton, CA.
The owner, Sandy as well as her staff were so very sweet and welcoming. 


As I walked around this adorable shop I was pleased to see my patterns and knitted samples prominently displayed at nearly every turn. What a compliment!







I couldn't have asked for a nicer group to work with in my class. 
Everyone was so supportive and kind. 


I am so grateful to Sandy and these wonderful knitters for an amazing weekend in Pleasanton. 
I hope to visit again!

If you are ever in the area, be sure to stop by Knit This, Purl That! in Pleasanton. 
It's a great shop with great people!

Whats the name of the pattern for the sweater with the single tree on what I think is the back? Love it and I can't find it on your site.

Well poo. If I had known you were going to be so close, I maybe would have swung out that way...

Hi Crazy Mama!

Thank you! That is my Bare Branches sweater found in my book Botanical Knits 2.

Thanks so much!

I saw the color changing yarn in a LYS recently. It looked amazing!

Another great podcast. I will miss you over the summer Alana, but luckily I have a number of podcasts from your early days. Long before I discovered your podcasts, to keep my laughing and knitting through the summer. I'd love to win that funky color-changing yarn. It sounds like it could make a fun hat for my nephew.
It is awesome to see the samples next to the patterns for your knits. I can't imagine walking out of that shop without at least one of your projects in my bag. You may think you are the last person who needs more yarn, but I can assure you I would give you stiff competition for that honor.
Enjoy some rest over the summer. I'm looking forward to your future. Designs. Karen- aka SheWhoKnitsKAT on Ravelry.
