This fabulous coat has become my latest obsession. It is getting to be that time of year when you start thinking about updating your wardrobe for spring, and I think this would be a perfect start. I may have to order it for myself today, or that might just be wishful thinking. I may have to check my out my bank account and let it make the decision for me.

A few weeks ago, I was helping a customer in the shop with a project she was working on. As she left the store, she gave me a little business card and said “Thank You”. It is the card above and on the back it had the quote above. It really made my day! I have never seen these types of cards before, have you? What a really unique way to say “Thanks:.

I am loving this Jasper yarn that we have in the shop. The colors are amazing and it so soft in your hands when you are working with it! It is an Aran weight so there are a lot of options for what to make with it and it knits up fairly quickly. I made a Lola Scarf out of it! It is probably my 10th Lola, but I could wear them every day!
We are so glad to have this book back in the shop! We had trouble getting it for some time and we were worried it was heading out of print. The baby bolero on the books cover has been one of our most popular store displays ever! Everything in this book can be made by a beginner, and you will want to make everything in the book. Baby Cashmerino 2 is a fabulous book! There are a total of 11 patterns for both boys and girls sized from newborn to 2 years. We just can’t seem to get enough of Debbie Bliss around here.
