Holly Holidays, Batman.....

Well, it seems like just yesterday I was filling you guys in on all the pretties from Ellyn and now there are only 17 knitting days until Christmas!!! How the heck did that happen? To those who follow the blog and are not completely ill with me for such slack posting, I appreciate your loyalty!

So, big changes around the shop. Britt is safely in Bowling Green (read really cold) Ohio. Long drive, plenty of new to settle into and new job starts shortly. Thanks to all who were able to join us for the going away/ birthday party on the 21st. Britt had a blast and felt quite loved at the end of all the festivities. Thanksgiving week was busy and kept us all hopping and Britt and family headed north on the Sunday following.

Lisa is now officially here "full-time"...the translation there is she is now my new right hand man. We are getting along famously and lots of new people are learning her lovely qualities. I am a lucky and blessed business owner! If you have not yet been introduced to Lisa, she'll be the dark haired gal with the big smile. If animal intuition counts for anything she's a keeper- Purrl simply adores her, and that counts for a lot in my book.

December will likely be filled with your last minute knitting projects and hopefully some time to knit a bit for yourself. If you are still looking for a couple of quick projects, stop in and see us - Lisa's first Kniting Addiction design for a "Cabled Cup Cozy" has been a super hit.... We have one person who has knitted over a dozen!! It's a great gift idea and knits up in no time out of Mission Falls 1824 Wool. There is still time for "Fingereless Mitts" or even a quick hat. Lisa and I will be happy to help you get knitting.

And, on a final note, we have a great display of great gifts for knitters. If your sweetie is trying to come up with something fun, send him in and we'll do our best to help pick out the perfect project bag or that awesome circular needle case from Offhand Designs. We also offer gift certificates in any amount so you can pick just what thrills you.

Happy Knitting, and Happy Holidays-
