Soulful Sounds of Summer are Back!

Announcing the return of the Soulful Sounds of Summer! This is a FREE concert series that occurs at Kent Station on various days throughout summer. Imagine:
  • An afternoon iced espresso drink, knitting/crocheting and jazz. Tuesday from noon - 1 PM would be your day. Got kids? Promise them a trip to the newly opened fountain park at the corner of 2nd & Smith (just south of Kent Station)
  • What about a glass of wine and swing to the music? Come on folks, let’s not be shy! Wednesday evenings 6 - 8 PM would be your night. Got kids? Hire a babysitter and make Wednesday ‘date night’. Enjoy some nice quality time with your sweetie!
  • Saturday concerts begin in August! Enjoy an afternoon of music with the family!

The concert series begins Tuesday, July 8th!

Ravelry, Blog or E-Newsletter

WOW! Another month has gone by since my last post. No excuse, really. Part of it, I suppose, is between Ravelry and the e-newsletter, I fret about sounding redundant. But then I remind myself that many of you are not on Ravelry yet. Or, maybe you are on Ravelry, but don't know how to use it. I admit, it can be a bit overwhelming. So, for those who are looking EVERYWHERE for news about Renaissance Yarns, I do apologize (in advance), if I do sound just a touch redundant...

Meanwhile, for those of you still with me, I'm excited about a new sock yarn that just arrived today. The yarn is called Heritage. It comes in several colorways, including hand-painted and solids. This yarn is incredibly soft on the hank. It's 437 yards of 75% Merino (superwash) and 25% nylon. I think it's the perfect yarn to try one of Cat Bordhi's new sock architectures with.

On a personal note, my youngest son, Mike, graduates from Kent-Meridian tomorrow! Needless to say, we are VERY proud of him and this accomplishment!!
