Well today my sweet little Shilah turns 5!! How on earth did that happen? Kids grow up so fast. She is all registered for Kindergarten next September - she can hardly wait to go. Well sweet pea - I love you more than you will ever know. Thank you for being such a bright spot in my life, for making laugh EVERY day and for always petting my thumb at bedtime. You are a very special little gift from above and I charish every moment we have together.

Oh my - has it really been that long since I last posted?? Sorry!! Well the LYS tour is fast approaching! Get your needles and your friends together and get ready to hit the road! May 20 - 23rd! It's going to be a BLAST!!
As usual - I have a bazillion things on the needles and several others that just need a little finishing. I am working hard at getting them done in a timely fashion. Do ya think I could clone myself? I could use a spare one or two of me just to get everything done.
Well off to work on a "secret" project.

Cookie A class

Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking a class from Cookie A. at Renaissance Yarns in Kent - what fun. Cookie A is a delightful person, if you have the chance to meet her do so. Having knit several of her sock designs, I was more than eager and jumped at the chance to meet her. I was very thrilled to see so many of her own creations in person. I know - they are just socks you say - I say they are works of art. I will definitely be making many, many more of her designs.

3/50 Project

One of our vendors sent us this link to a very interesting website - The 3/50 Project. This is a very inspiring concept and I hope everyone takes a few minutes to read the information. This is a grass-roots effort to help boost the economy and save the small independent business - this is near and dear to my heart.

Fun TImes

Oh My Gosh!!! We received a humongous shipment of yarn today!! I spent most of the day imputing it and labeling it - I'm plum tuckered out!! I'm actually too tired to knit if you can believe it.
Plans are well on their way for the LYS Tour coming up in May - it's going to be a blast!! Grab your friends and hit the road. While we are busy getting the final details ready, be sure to get your map planned. It's going to be a blast - great prizes, daily drawings and terrific one skein projects await you at every stop!
Not sure what to get your fiber fanatic friends??? We just received our second shipment of the cutest yarn themed coffee cups - be sure to check them out the next time you are in! Also be sure to take a moment to read the lovely thank you received from Highline Medical Center for the teddy bears everyone so generously donated!!

Laura's Teddy Bear Picnic

In memory of our dear friend, Laura, who passed away last September we hosted a teddy bear drive the last two weeks of February at the yarn shop. We successfully collected 245 bears - they are being donated to Highline Medical Center's ER were each bear will find a new home.

Today the kids and I went to empty out the window - it took a while but it was lots of fun. We loaded up all the bears into large bags - it took 5!! We plan on hosting a bear drive each February - maybe next year we can get more!!
Thanks to all that helped and supported us during the drive!! Special thanks to the gals Fashion Bug for helping to collect them.
