I had a nice suprise visitor in the shop this morning....her name is Jo "Baby" Sharp! She's really pushing fall along with a little nudge. She brought some lovely pattern books with her. You know Jo and I go way back. She's one of my first true loves. I hope you'll come in and meet her. She'll probably want to come home and stay with you awhile. She's like that.

Cruise in tomorrow. The 21st. I will be open all day. Until 9:00 p.m.. Old cars, shopping, knitting, probably some pizza. What more could you want on a Saturday night?

Be here!
Come whenever you want.

First of all I would like to encourage everyone to stop by Mindy's blog and make a donation in support of her son and the Greater Cincinnati Down's Syndrome Association. There is a link on Mindy's blog where you can access the donation page. It does not matter what amount your donation is. Just donate already. This is for a great cause. Mindy has some great prizes which she will draw winners for in September. My shop will be donating a Tulip Sweater kit.....yes Tonia, A Tulip Sweater kit. If you haven't heard about this phenomenon just go here. These are the adorable little baby sweater that everyone is just going crazy about. These will be arriving in the store anyday now. I will also be carrying the "Smooshy" sock yarn by this company. Along with both patterns they currently offer. To say the least I'm very excited about this. I will be kitting the sweaters up. They will be offered in the original colorway and also in some of my own creations. OHHH so excited! In addition to these items, I'm also waiting for another shipment of Fleece Artist to arrive anytime as well. This will have more Blue Face Leicester Aran weight yarn, Nova sock yarn, and some shawl, sweater, and hat kits. Fun! Fun!
I have been knitting, but not much progress. I can't seem to stay focused long enough. The most I've knit since May has really just been on socks. I do have a cardigan started out of the Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair. I love working with this yarn. The mohair mixed with the wool gives it such a nice halo.
GO. RUN. DONATE!!!!!!!
