Finally we might get a nice weekend! But then Winter Storm Nika hits early next week. Although I don’t think I will get a break from mopping the shop floor. Salt on the floors is another thing that makes me nuts. And if an ice storm isn’t enough, I heard from two sources we could get snow like 2010 next weekend. For now I will take the warmth and hopefully sunshine for a day or two.
Shop Happenings this weekend ~
This Saturday is 1st Saturday – Fire and Ice. There will be Ice Sculptures, Hot Chocolate and music downtown. We will be open till around 8pm or so. Oh and I almost forgot about the 1st Sat. drawing. I wonder who will get this month’s free giveaway??

Off and On the Needles ~
Thought I would share some New Shop Samples. First up, Mom’s 2nd pair of socks. She didn’t complete these in a week…but she wasn’t solely working on them. Anne Hanson’s Tesserae Sock worked in Sweet Georgia’s CashLuxe Fine. So she is on to #3. Which reminds me that we have the Fancy Toe Up Sock Class coming up.
Second, I managed to finish the Caitlin’s Cowl from Churchmouse Yarns. I modified this pattern using Malabrgio Rios and Mohair holding both double and worked on #17s. This was a quick mindless knit even though I was anxious to get to the recommended 16 inches. I’m quite pleased with it’s luxurious look, and it is big enough to pull down over your shoulders.
Now I am working on Purl Bee’s Sweatshirt Sweater..half way through the 2nd sleeve. 🙂
We hope to see you this weekend, and don’t be surprised if the floor is wet and a I have a mop in hand.
Cheers to 45 degrees!
