In the July newsletter, we posted a notice about Sock n Bowl, a time of knitting & bowling. A few helpful Ravelers alerted us to the fact that there were a few details missing, so we figured an informative blog post would be a good thing to do lol!
This Thursday, July 16th at 6pm, we will be heading to Lucky Strike Lanes at 1336 Chestnut Street a door or two down from Olive Garden and across the street from Borders. Come bowl with us! It's $4.95 per game, so if you wanted to bowl a game or two and knit for the rest of the night, you'd get your money's worth. There is also a dress code which can be found here. It's not very restricting unless you were dying to break out that dirty, baggy athletic chainmail sleeveless tank top in the back of your closet, but I'd still give it a glance just to be safe.
There's food, wonderful food. You've got your bar staple of hot wings and burgers along with some things I've never heard of like tuna lollipops and chicken pillows. Can I sleep on said pillow? How can chicken be that soft? I guess I'll find out. Bring a friend or two for some fun in the city and you could order a pizza together to save some dough. You can check out the menu here to get an idea of what you might be in the mood for that night.
I think it'll be a great time to be had. Bowling, food, friends, knitting....how can you go wrong? We hope to see you there!
Also, for some more exciting news, the new Fall 2009 issue of Knitscene arrived in the shop today!
I'm getting tingly all over thinking of all of the sweaters to be knit! Knitscene always has sweaters/accessories that are sure to get ooh and aahs from admirers. Another reason why I definitely want to buy this magazine is because our Kate has a new sweater pattern inside!
The Hollywood Herringbone Pullover looks amazing! It's worked in Organik by the Fibre Company, a yarn you can find right here at Rosie's. Kate describes the sweater as "a nice balance between quirky and classic". I couldn't agree more and am already thinking of colors with which to make my own! Congrats Kate!
