I find it hard to believe that Spring is here and we might actually get some real, warm weather. In fact, this weekend I might even do the window boxes over with Summer flowers! If you’re ready to be in the warm-weather mood, and do some knitting, crochet or sewing for the season, we have a lot to offer you – great cottons and cool patterns! Come on in.
If you’re looking for another excuse to come in… I am hosting the April 30 Quick Knit and a Movie night. I really want to watch Sisters with Tina Fey and Amy Pohler. Who’s in? I have to decide a project. I’m thinking Welted Cowl(freebie) that would be a nice minds knit that doesn’t have to be in mohair. let me know your thoughts.
Until next week, I hope to see you in the shop!
Oh- almost forgot – thank you to all who have been sending in box tops! The boys’ class won for the most turned in. Keep them coming!
