Customer Project - Reading... and knitting!

contributed by Shawn

Our customer Pauli D. has been visiting Malta this summer and she's keeping in touch with us on our facebook page.  We always love hearing what she's been up to. She was just back in Vermont and stopped in the shop before heading back to the Mediterranean. Pauli told us she's been reading Casting Off by Nicole R. Dickson. While she's been enjoying the story, she's also been trying out some of the Irish stitch patterns that are included in the book.

This is a sample that she brought by to show us:
The story teller is a woman who visits an island off the west coast of Ireland to research Irish knitting.  She finds that each fisherman's handmade sweater tells a story.  Stories and knitting! Guess I'll need to stop by the library this weekend.
