Happy Thanksgiving!! It's a time for family and great food and fun. We all have so much to be
thankful for each day. It's a time for peace and reflection. Another year has passed, and it has been
one with many challenges. My hope and prayer is that next year finds us able to be closer, and healthy.
This pandemic has changed so much for so many. I wish all of you good health during the holidays
and the year to come.
We will, of course, be closed Thursday on Thanksgiving day. We will be open Friday and Saturday.
Saturday is national "shop small" day. It's a day to support and appreciate all of the small businesses
that we know and love. We truly appreciate you and your support. We will have a gift for everyone
who makes a purchase that day to show our appreciation. Stop in!!
As many of you know we collect hats, scarves and mittens to be distributed to local people in need.
We have been doing this for many years, and I am always amazed at the generosity of our many
customers. If you have any items that you wish to contribute, please drop them off at the shop
any time. We receive hundreds of hand knitted items each year. If you do not knit or crochet, we
gladly accept purchased items. Thank you in advance!!
It's also time for the Toys for Tots collection. Our box has arrived, and I would love to see it
full again this year. No child should go without a new toy at Christmas!!!
Wishing you a very happy holiday. Relax, enjoy and eat lots!!!!

We turned the clocks back! Dark by 5:30...more evening time to relax and knit! I like it,
it seems cozy when you come home. I know I'm in the minority!! I've started some gifts
for Christmas, I'm sure many of you have also realized how close it is coming. Lots of new
and exciting ideas for you.
Hope you are all well. It sure is great to see people again. Seems like it has been a long
time since we have felt comfortable getting out and about. Stop in and visit, we are very
excited to chat again. Take care,
Bonnie

Happy Halloween! I just finished handing out candy to trick or treaters! Always fun to see
all the kids in their costumes. It was warm enough to be able to wear them without winter
coats. Tomorrow is November already!! The knitting weather has certainly begun! There is
a nip in the air. Fall is definitely coming to an end.
We are unpacking new yarns and kits every day. There are so many new wonderful yarns
to inspire you. If you have gifts to make for Christmas, we have plenty of ideas. It surely is
time to get started. The days are getting shorter, but the evenings are getting longer! I like
that, no need to feel guilty about taking more time to relax and knit! There is a coziness about
longer evenings.
Stop in soon. It has been so nice seeing so many of you again. We are excited about all the
new fibers this fall. Happy Knitting!!

Hello, and welcome to fall! The leaves are gorgeous, and the temps are cooler. It is
perfect knitting weather!!! Yeah!! The longer evenings make for extra knitting time as well.
There are new and exciting yarns and kits coming in every day. You have to see ( and feel)
them to appreciate them. Don't forget that it is time to think about your Christmas gift
projects. I don't know about you, but it always sneaks up on me! I always have such good
intentions!
Stop in soon, we are back to "normal" after our incident with the building this summer.
A new look!! Our hours are Tuesday -- Friday 12 - 5, and Saturday 10-2. It has been so nice
to see so many of you again! We are excited!!!! Take care,and see you soon!

How in the world did it get to be Labor Day so quickly!?!? Am I the only who thought
this summer flew by? It's been a strange summer, with the heat and dry. We finally got
some desperately needed rain. My grass has actually turned green! The weather has
also cooled down, which is OK with knitters! Some of us really don't care if it's hot, we
still knit!!!
We will be closed for the holiday weekend, open Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from
12-4. We will be closed Saturday. Hope you have a great weekend, and have plenty of
yarn to get you through. If not, stop in this week to pick up a project!!
Enjoy the weekend, and the official end to summer!!
Bonnie

08/23/2021

Hello! We finally got a little rain...no where near enough, but some. The weather has cooled
a bit. Time to think about knitting. I guess some of us think about it no matter the temperature!
We are finished with our construction project and excited to have you see our new look. New
yarns are arriving for fall. Stop in soon....we are gearing up for fall. Not too early to start your
Christmas knitting, we all know how the holidays sneak up! See you soon!
Bonnie

and hope you are too!! Be sure to stop in!!
Bonnie

Things are looking up!! The work inside the shop is almost finished!!! They will finish
On Monday. That means we a restock all the yarn and needles on Tuesday. YEAH!!!
We will be open Thursday and Friday from 12-4, and Saturday from 10-2. We are really
looking forward to seeing all of you. Come see our new look! It's time to start fall knitting
in earnest. The summer has gone by quickly, as usual!
Enjoy the rest of the summer. It is finally trying to rain today. Sure hope we get a nice
gentle all day rain that will soak in. We need it so badly. It also makes for great "stay
inside and knit" weather! Along with a cup of tea or a glass of wine, life doesn't get any
better than that! Have a great week, and hope to see you soon!!!!

Happy New Year everyone! Let's hope it is better than the last one!! I don't think anyone
is sad to see 2020 end!! It certainly will be one to remember and tell stories about for a long
time.
I would like to thank everyone who made hats for donation this year. I distributed them
right before Christmas. We had about 700 hats, knit or crocheted to donate. The recipients
expressed deep gratitude. It's a great feeling to know that kids and adults will be warm and
cozy due to your generosity. People who do hand work are very giving people. It always
amazes me how few projects knitters make for themselves! Even when a project starts out
for oneself, they often end up given to someone else! We will continue to collect hats for next
year. Drop them off any time, and we will store them for donation. Any size, color or pattern is
fine and greatly appreciated.
Now that the holidays are over, maybe there will be more time for new projects. Long winter
evenings are meant to sit by the fire and knit. Hot chocolate or a glass of wine is always in
order! Looking forward to seeing you soon...
Bonnie

Christmas is officially over for another year. It always amazes me how much preparation
goes into the holiday, and how quickly it is over. I love Christmas, and the feeling of peace
that comes with it. I would like to take this time to reflect on the past year. It has been a year
to remember, and a year to forget at the same time.
So many people have been affected by the fires, floods and pandemic. We still have so
many things to be grateful for. Family and friends come to mind immediately, and the
importance of the relationships in our lives. I truly appreciate your business and support, but
also your friendship.
We are looking forward to the new year. Hopefully we will remain healthy, and begin to
interact and socialize as we used to! Until then, stay safe, and keep knitting!
Bonnie
