March 2011 Sock Saturday– Color Me Lucky!

March 13th, 2011 · Sock Saturday, Starstruck Cat

Yesterday was the second Sock Saturday, and it was a great time!  Mary Ann and Jamisyn did a great job of creating the art yarn and sock pattern.

It’s probably clear, but I asked for green because we love St. Patrick’s Day around here (has something to do with the fact that Pman thinks it’s a holiday about him), and since Mary Ann’s daughter went to Notre Dame, we had lots to inspire us.  In fact, all of the decorations around the shop were provided by Mary Ann.

This month, everybody decided it would be fun to have a little pitch-in.  Laurie brought yummy chicken salad, Karen baked delicious Irish oat scones with oatmeal, buttermilk, and currants, and Jennie shared her delightful spinach artichoke dip, which Amber completed with Italian and wheat bread.  (Yes, I’m working on getting the recipes to share!)

Do you spot any handknit socks in the photo above?

When I was imagining both the shop and Sock Saturday, I could not have dreamed of a more delightful community of people to share it with!  I’m looking forward to the next Sock Saturday on May 14, which will also be the one year birthday celebration of Starstruck Cat Studio.  Hard to believe it’s been almost a year!

Another Chime-in from Boo

February 6th, 2011 · Uncategorized

Hi Everyone, it has been a while since Jill has updated the blog.  Not only is the shop running well, she has also taken an opportunity to practice the ONLY kind of law she likes–at the Indiana General Assembly.  She has been a busy little Boo with all that going on.

Anyhow, the real reason I HAD to post today: Jill is working on a basket to send off to Craftsanity, and although it is going well, you all know NO project is without its aggravations.  I will let the photos speak for themselves:

The Basket Lab is Open!

And this one speaks for itself:

Quote: “Ohhhh… Now I see what I’m doing wrong!

(The expression was priceless!)

Jill will be back on the blog soon!
