Last Friday, October 17, In the Loopers had a surprise visit from the authors of the new Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines. Kay and Ann hung out for an hour, chatted and signed books as we worked on our season projects.
Visit their blog, www.masondixonknitting.com, and read the post about stopping by the Winter Garden on their busy book tour.

Before the busy holiday season begins, set a goal of making TWO pair of socks or TWO sets of hats & mittens. We have ONE month to accomplish this goal, so let's get busy!
The recipients-a seafaring worker or a mother and child-will appreciate the care and creativity in our warm, handknit pieces as the temperature drops outside.
Join us for our next evening session on October 29 under the palm trees in the Winter Garden where we'll continue to help each other through the projects. The final lunchtime session with Ina Braun is November 21 where she will continue to give instruction for socks knit on double pointed needles as well as assistance with the hat and mitten patterns. REMEMBER to bring your own needles (see post below for needle sizes). We still have sock, hat and mitten yarn in the stash.
We'll collect handknit pieces through December 1, 5pm, either at the In the Loop events or in our offices. We'll deliver the pieces to the two charities on Tuesday, December 2. Please make sure that each piece is completely finished-all ends woven into the fabric and lightly blocked.
We're around the office if you need assistance with a pattern, so call or email us from the blog.
