The winner of the Most Dedicated Knitter Award goes to...

...The young woman who made her husband stop at the shop about 7 PM Friday night, despite his objections, to pick up 6 skeins of yarn.  They were on their way to the hospital in Plymouth.  And she was actively in labor.

A few things worth mentioning:

  • Oaklawn Hospital in Goshen is asking for donations of leftover yarns that are machine washable (mainly acrylics and superwash) for their program to teach residents to knit and crochet.  All articles will be donated to homeless shelters.  You can drop off any yarns you would like to donate at the shop, and I will get it to the coordinator.
  • I am going to add a "Wish List" page to the blog, so you can refer your loved ones to it when they are shopping for a gift for you.
  • A lovely woman came in the shop today looking for someone with a knitting machine that would be interested in making a dress to her specifications.  Anyone know anyone?  You can let me know and I will get in touch with her.
Knit happy!
