LK150 knitting machine video and projects for the holiday season to come!

Want to see what is included with the Silver Reed LK150 Knitting Machine?
This machine is a great machine that is perfect for new machine knitters, and advanced machine knitters.  The simplicity of it makes it a real joy to work with.  Enjoy!  (and yes, that is me!)

Here are two really great ideas for the gift giving season coming up soon!  We carry Cascade's Magnum and soon to arrive is Rowan's Big Wool.  Both pages will be up on line soon, but feel free to email us and we can get your order put together for you.  The Child's Super Bulky Top Down Coat and the Snowboarder Hats for the whole family are super fast knit projects!!
Another adorable gift giving project is our child's hooded vest.  Done in the bulky yarn Marble Chunky, the two smallest sizes take only 1 ball, and the other 4 larger sizes take only 2 balls.
And for your best friend, a  frilly adornment to her holiday jacket will make her eyes sparkle.  We have three different lines to choose from.  Schachenmayr's Argentina, Universal's Rozetti Spectra and Universal's Marina all offer a large selection of fun colors to choose from.
It's a hot day in Portland today.  We hit 102 degrees and set a new record.  But that didn't slow down visitors to Angelika's Yarn Store.  Where there is a will, there will be a way!  I'm working on a crochet swim suit cover from the Summer/August 2012 issue of Interweave Crochet. It's fast, it's light and it's easy.  The one in the magazine was done in Cascade's Cotton Rich, but I'm doing mine in Cascade's Ultra Pima.  And mine will be much prettier!!!  LOL 
(ps: the Ultra Pima page is slated for a massive face lift.  If you see a color on Cascade's Ultra Pima page, but not on ours, email me to place your order!!)
Take care and we'll talk again soon!
