Anniversary Sale Fun!

We had such a great time at our Anniversary Sale!  On Saturday, April 7th, all customers who came to the sale wearing something they've made from yarns purchased at Bloomin Yarns received a complimentary skein of Noro Kogarashi or Kochoran.
(thanks to our vendor, Knitting Fever, for their kind donation!)

We also drew the winning names for our Winter Knit-A-Longs on Saturday.  This time we had six KALs going all at once, which was a ton of fun.  See our separate post for photos of some of our KAL finished projects.  And, see the list of winners at the end of this post!

How appropriate that Ruth was wearing one of her "LaLa's Simple Shawls" made with Noro Chirimen!

 Marie wore her Cowl-Neck Capelet:
 Jade is winding her yarn while wearing her fingerless mits:
 Christa wore her scarf/shawlette made with one of the Dream In Color Dream Club yarns.
 Deb wore her first lace project, Ishbel, a shawl designed by Ysolda.
 Here's Cathy wearing her Cowl-Neck Capelet:
 Dianne was doing some last-minute seaming on her Aidez while wearing Honey's Ruffle and her Rocky Coast Cardigan!!
 Julia's shawl, Girasole, by Jared Flood was breathtaking!  She used Madelinetosh Merino Light in Gilded.....my fave!
 Love Jess in her Cables and Os Cardigan which can be found it the book No Sheep for You.
Jess used Rowan Cashsoft dk.
 These fellow Honey's Ruffle KALers are Ruth, Anna and Dianne.
 Linda won one of our KAL prizes, a sweater kit that was donated by Berroco (Thanks, Berroco!).
 And, Sue won in the Aidez category!
Other winners were Cathy for Caramel, Judy for Iced, Dianne for Honey's Ruffle and Janet for Rocky Coast.

Info about our next four Knit-A-Longs is coming soon.
This time we'll have one Grand Prize - An amazing Kidsilk Haze mohair wrap donated by our vendor of Rowan Yarns, Westminster Fibers!
Wouldn't you love to win this?!?

April's finished projects

Dee made this beautiful afghan as a gift for a bridal shower.  She used Berroco Comfort and found the pattern in the book Knitting at Home.

Shirley's daughter put together her own combo of five yarns to make this great scarf using our Bloomin Open Lacy Scarf pattern:

Here's Melanie looking cute wearing her wrap she made with Malabrigo Aquarella:
 Cathy made this adorable sweater for her granddaughter using two skeins of the February Dream Club Yarn:
Geri knitted her jacket, a popular Drops pattern, with Berroco Peruvia Quick.
 Wanda made this stunning afghan with Cascade 128 Superwash.

Susan made this sweet little baby sweater with Crystal Palace Bunny Hop.
 Sandy  knitted her gorgeous cardigan with the ever-so-popular color Tart in Madelintosh dk.  The patten, Calligraphy Cardigan by Hannah Fettig is available at Bloomin Yarns.

Judy made her beautiful cardigan with Noro Kogarashi, a lovely yarn that's been discontinued, so if you love Kogarashi as much as we do you'd better come and get it soon!  Judy's pattern is called Emerald, a pattern from Knitty.com.
Valerie made her pretty Fan Shawl with Noro Taiyo Sock Yarn.

Winter Knit-A-Longs - finished projects - the full report!

I've saved all of the photos of all our Knit-A-Long projects for one post.  It's a big one!  Have a look at all these gorgeous knitted garments!  I know everyone hasn't finished yet, so I'll keep posting them as they arrive.
Aidez -
To begin with, we have Sara who knit her Aidez with Rowan Renew.

Sue made her Aidez for her daughter.
She used Berroco Peruvia Quick.

  Dianne also knit hers with Peruvia Quick:
 This is Sandy's Aidez, the original inspiration for our KAL.  Valerie made one for herself and one for her daughter but I'm sorry I didn't get her photo!

Caramel -
 Cathy's Caramel turned out great!
 So did Nancy's!
 Cowl - Neck Capelet -
Doesn't Marie look great in her capelet?  Marie used our favorite, super-soft tweed, Berroco Blackstone Tweed.
 Cathy inspired us to include this adorable capelet in our KAL list.

And, here's Nancy's, again, done in Blackstone Tweed:

Linda made hers with Debbie Bliss Luxury Tweed:
 Iced -
Judy's Iced was made with Peruvia Quick:
It was great to have some new customers join our KALs.  Cheryl gained a ton of knitting confidence by completing her Iced.  Way to go Cheryl!
 Sara changed up her Iced by using a contrast color for the bottom ribbing and the front band.  Really cute variation!
 Honey's Ruffle -
 Honey's Ruffle was a fun project.  When choosing colors, you're never quite sure how they'll look when knitted.  David's choices (assisted by Janice, I hear) turned out really well!
 And, so did Ruth's!
 Dianne had a bit of a challenge with her colors but her final choices turned out beautifully!

 Hmmm, I think I like them all!  Doesn't Anna look cute modeling her Honey's Ruffle?
 And how about Peg, who used a cotton as one of her yarn choices! 
 Lovely!
 Had to include Janice's pretty version:

Here's Myumi and her Honey's Ruffle.  So pretty and colorful!

And finally, here's mine:

Rocky Coast Cardigan -

Shelly was a new KALer.  She did a wonderful job with her Rocky Coast cardigan.  Shelly used Organik from the Fibre Co.  Glad you joined us, Shelly!
 Janet's gorgeous Rocky Coast was knit with Terra from The Fibre Co.
 Looking quite similar but not the same is Dianne's done in Organik:
Organik was also Cathy's choice for her Rocky Coast:
Me too!  I made my longer version with Organik.  If you haven't already met her, that's Hannah modeling my sweater. 
Did you happen to notice that a few of those girls actually knitted three out of the six projects?!?  Wow!  Great job to everyone!  Check out the blog post on our Anniversary Weekend to see who won the prizes for each project!
