Knitting for a Cause

Thanks so much to Vicki and to all those who knitted chemo caps as part of our recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Vicki, an oncology nurse and breast cancer survivor, spoke with us about her experience with breast cancer and educated us about what we need to know about the disease. If you would like a copy of the handouts she gave us we have a stack in the shop.

Have you ever wanted to wear a llama?

I got to today. We received a sample, knit out of the luscious Miski Baby Llama yarn. We actually have all these colors and the pattern in stock, if it calls to you. This sweater is so cuddly and soft and warm, perfect for fall and winter, if they ever arrive. Be sure to pet this one the next time you stop by. (forgive the squint, the trouble with well light photos is all that sun in your eyes. )

Congratulations to Gena for winning our "County Fair" competition at Open Knit Night last night! Several customers brought beautiful projects to show off, but the majority vote went to Gena for her Tangled Yoke Cardigan. Isn't it beautiful??
