Yarn Challenge!

Nest week yarn challenge entries arrive back into the shop and the voting begins!  I am working my way through mine, just about done the first part!  Some entries have made it back into the shop, its amazing how everyone took the same yarn and made completely different projects! 

My next project is....something from this lovely new yarn from Misti Alpaca. Handpaint Silk and Cotton lovely! 

Easter is this weekend, so a reminder that the shop is closed on Friday and open Saturday from 10 am - 5 pm!

See You Soon.

It's been a while!

The month of March has proven to be a challenge!

A week ago we said goodbye to our beloved Cardigan Corgi 'Jasper'.  Jasper was a happy, ambitious, smart, spunky, lovable companion.  He loved to be where ever we were.  We took him with us when we camped (he pooped in 5 provinces!); he stayed in Hotels;  he was a passenger in just about every vehicle 'The Farmer' drove.  At 14 he had outlived the average age for his breed by a couple of years!  We were thankful for those extra years.  Needless to say our home feels very empty right now.

The last week of March is next week we look forward to April, and Spring?  (It's been a long winter!)
A quick reminder that the Yarn Challenge projects are due right after Easter! So far 8 entries have made there way back into the shop, competition is pretty tough again this year!  I am still working on mine, a few details to finish. 

See You soon

The Event begins Thursday, we have a few things planned!...

Find some friends, fill up the car and take a day or two and visit us!
