Before Susanne and her husband moved to Chico, they use to live in Pinole. She was a “regular” at Saturday morning knitting. We were blessed with a visit from her this past Saturday. Not only did we do some of the familiar….walk, knit, eat and yarn shop….Susanne shared her latest project. She said it is her most challenging…she has used life lines to stay on track. She so often knits patterns/designs that have challenge and the results are always beautiful. I asked her to send photos….here they are. I can hardly wait to see this when done. It was so good to see Susanne. We are going to have a knitting weekend in Chico during May….thank you Susanne!

Oh….here is the info re: project….Vogue Spring/summer 2014. Yarn Joyland Tonic 85 Acrylic / 15
Wool, color Gingerbread

Stitches West 2015 is almost here….February 20-21 at Santa Clara Convention. Several of us in the Skein Lane community are fans of her designs and her yarns. The ornate designs are Maggi’s creations and the others are designs knit with some of  Maggi’s yarns. I will be working in her booth again this year….come see us in booth 513.
