What's knittin'?

Yes... it is finally finished. My September "Clown barf" sweater as it was lovingly named by my awesome Friday night ladies. But guess what? I love it, it looks great on me and it fits perfectly! 

Vitamin D from Ravelry! OR clown barf!
I love how well the short rows show up!

My Favorite! TFA Blue label in Harvest!

No colour pooling!!
I just loved the radial increases!

This was a great sweater to knit! Very easy construction and it fits incredibly well! Any sock weight yarn would be fabulous in this sweater! most people opted for solid colours to show off the "sun spots" yarn overs- but I'm a little crazy for orange and brights so bright and orange I did! It only takes 3 balls for most sizes! Try it in Tanis Fiber Arts purple label cashmere... you'll never be the same.

My fall window! let's zoom in and see what we find....
Oh it's just my award... no big deal!

On Monday night at The Evening of Excellence- the kick off dinner to small business week- I was presented with this award for "Success Story" for my business. I am so excited about having just been nominated for this award and it was such an honor to win! Opening any business in a small town like North Bay is very difficult- let alone a specialty store like mine! It was just over two years ago that I opened my store at the age of 20. I personally have grown so much in that time and my business has as well! What an amazing milestone this was for Stix and Stones. Thank you all my devoted customers, students, family and friends for helping me out on this journey. I couldn't be happier! Now I can't wait to see what comes next....
