Congratulations are in order

Our very own Knitting Suzanne (Suzanne Bryan) accomplished the following in just the last few months:

Suzanne passed (with flying colors) Level III of the TKGA (The Knitting Guild of America) Master Knitter Program

(Contact Suzanne and she can tell you how you can do the same!)

Suzanne designed a raglan sweater and wrote an article for the TKGA magazine Cast On (available at select yarn stores or through TKGA website

As a reward for passing Level III Suzanne acquired a beautiful Spinning Wheel on a recent trip to Solvang

Wonder what is next for Suzanne (is there a master spinning program?)

Congratulations Suzanne! Job Well Done!
