We have anew fixture in Diva! It is a wonderfully textured, vintage style wire shel unit. I bought it from a fellow vendor at Sock Summit in Portland and I added it and another to our FELTING corner. We have such great new roving and felting books that the whole corner has come alive.

Since I think this holiday season will be the one of handmade gifts; a little felted animal would make a great tree ornament. Come in for an idea or two!

This new title in crochet has just arrived at the shop and Cathy made a little star granny square from it. I had not seen a star granny square before and I am delighted at how pretty and unique it is! We have an awesome collection of crochet titles and magazines. Crochet is so exciting this past year and we are seeing design potential that I just never knew existed before. I'll see a picture and think how pretty that piece is and then find myself saying, " that's crocheted?! ". Wow! I feel an awakening coming on....

This is a shot of the Portland Bead Fest display. Judy, Phil and Jacob did a pretty nice job without my creative input! It took me three days of sorting and labeling to make set up easier for them.







A picture of Jacob ice skating while in Portland for Bead Fest. Judy said once he finally let go of the wall around the rink; he wasn't too bad a skater. I used to like to ice skate as a kid but since I only had a friend's used, dull skates; I do not think that I was very good!

I would post more often to the yarn shop blog if only I could figure out how to not at the exact same moment be posting to my blog! Someday, maybe, I will understand this computer world. Knitting is so much simpler.
