Joy is back in town(from visiting her mom in Chicago) so she will post some soon. We are getting ready for this Sunday's happening( is that word made a comeback or am I just showing my age?)We are going to decorate a tree for an Alzheimer fundraising auction. So many people have great ideas, I think we could decorate a couple of trees if there was time. We are making little knitted sleeves for plain glass ornaments and little sweaters and mittens. Joy and I are planning to do the tree skirt if we can figure out how to do wedges and put them together. It should be a great afternoon. I wish we would have some cooler weather to put us in the mood. It has been so warm this fall. I am a cold weather girl(not good for a girl living in Arkansas). I think its because I can wear sweaters in the fall and winter and cover up any unsightly lumps that have invaded my body over the last few years. It also seems that I'm constantly ironing in the summer(I love linen).
I see the first of the trick or treaters coming down the street so I will sign off.

Well it's finally happened. It took us 5 years to post a blog but we got to it today. We will visit this space at least once a week and let all of our loyal friends know what is going on at the shop and in our lives.(at least our knitting lives).

The holiday season is fast approaching and I(Colleen) am starting to feel the panic. I decided this year not to set myself up and plan to give everyone a hand knit gift, but then the guilt set in. So now I feel guilty and panicked. I guess I should put that energy into some knitting. I do think that I will try to get at least some slippers done for my mother-in-law. Cynthia(our resident whiz kid knitter) is making some from KNIT TWO TOGETHER for her mother-in-law and they are darling and shouldnt take too long. Am I being a copycat? I don't think so. That's the great thing about the community of knitters, they love sharing their ideas.
