Whistle while you work...

I'm not so sure I've ever worked so hard in my entire life, the weeks are flying by... Before we know it, the bells will be ringing, and the holidays will be here... The shop has been bustling with customers stocking up on holidays knitting projects, and I've been knitting up a storm, and finishing up the first batch of bells. Here you go... Most have dibs on them already, so hurry. I'll be throwing another batch this Saturday though, I'll make as many as I can...

A couple of weeks ago, I was in the city for dinner, and as I walked past Bergdorf's, I saw this beautiful lacy doubled cowl. It had thicks and thins of different colors, and it looked airy and warm all at the same time. I figured I better get started on this right away, so we can all have one asap!!! It's been a huge hit at the store, and the yarn is flying out the door for it. I'll have the pattern finished in a day or 2, let's say for sure by Saturday.... See you then!

Yarn bells...

The first batch of yarn bells have been fired, and awaiting their glaze. I'll be tending to that tomorrow, and throwing another batch as well. I'll keep you posted as to when they will be ready for purchase, along with the opening of my etsy shop. These are great holiday gifts for the knitters you know... I like them a lot so far......
