The weeks are flying by!
Last week, Kellie/Whorled Peace (check out her etsy!) stopped in with a big box of roving and lots more of her amazing hand painted sock yarn. I've been eyeing sock yarn for other projects--baby sweaters and booties come to mind--even an openwork cowl would be really nice in superwash merino!
The new Interweave Holiday Knits magazine is in! We got 12 copies, stop in to get one. There are some sweet patterns, and a contest to win a copy of Franklin Habit's "It Itches," which is also available in the shop. I love his blog, and I love his book. You can find Franklin on Ravelry, too.

We also got a few more copies of Living Crafts Fall 2008 Issue, which is their annual 'wool' issue. I love this Waldorf inspired magazine, its not just knitting, and it is so friendly!

Just in time for First Friday, we brought in some beautiful fair trade handknits from Nepal and Ecuador. Recycled sari silk hats and scarves and big wooly socks, mittens, and hats.

So, that's LAST week--I'll be in the shop tomorrow, and I'll let you know what's new this week soon!

Don't forget Lancaster marks First Friday on November 7th this month! We'll serve fresh roasted Ripple Stitch coffee and dark chocolate Wilbur Buds. We'll be open until 9:00-ish. Stop in to say hello while you're downtown!
