The sidewalk sale is always a ton of fun! Today is the last day of this years sale. It’s been fun and our awesome customers have come from in town to out of state to build a mountain of a “stash”.
We still have a couple bags…


And fabulous yarns to move on out before fall calls on the yummy winter yarns.



Yep there is Alchemy, Rowan, Tahki, and lots of the best in there.
Hope to see you all today!

Happy “Stashing”!


The kitchen is my place. My family has spent a lot of time leaning over counters (my whole life). The kitchen is the life blood to this family. And kitchen tools are like toys 😀 Dish towels are often an exciting accessory to the fridge, oven, or tossed over a shoulder.
When my favorite towels started to fall apart I looked for something to turn them into. And along comes Ms Erika Knight to revive my ragged towels.
In her book Natural Nursery Knits there is the perfect solution to my issue. A rag basket. So I got to ripping.
5 hand towels later I have this, and couldn’t be happier.



Happy Knitting!

Pendleton. Is. Awesome.
The company has been around since 1863 and are still making their stuff in the good old US of A. Their wool blankets and robes are so warm you can ditch the down comforters and all the blankets on your bed😉
I have always loved their signature striped blankets, They remind me of cowboy blankets from old western movies I watched as a kid. (love me some Lonesome Dove)
Our good friends who own Sonoma Coast Surf Shop sell the Men’s wool, button downs, and told me the whole line was pretty great so I borrowed a catalog and went online and basically couldn’t decide which of what I wanted! They make wallets, blankets, clothes, dishes, travel mugs, purses…. Ahhh its all so good! Coincidently a recent issue of the Debbie Bliss magazine (Fall/Winter 2012) had a south western theme called Home on the range, (page 64-67.) with five Pendelton-ish patterns to make. These pillows

would go perfectly with the “Heroic Cheif” blanket. We also have a room in our house that has a cowboy/ cowgirl theme. Perfect place to put the pillows!
Check out this magazine there are a lot of great patterns to knit… This bag

Or the log cabin blanket


Or oh my gosh how cute are these?!

We got the cutest Knitting bags in this week…. I couldn’t help but think how fun it would be to get a new bag for Easter! Does it always have to be the kids who get the bright sweet bag (basket) for Easter? We also got more of the super cute puppets, maybe those can be for the kid in all of us.

I went to the trade show in Phoenix to see all the spring yarns, and I ended up getting  French Trims,  some fabulous threads, waxed linen, sewing kits, scissors, all with the coolest old-time french labels……..I could’t resist!!!! I just love ribbon and sewing stuff, it always reminds of Gramma, lots of love. I also found some super cute new knitting bags I couldn’t live without, lets hope you all feel the same, he he.

I’m really loving the new needle line called Knitters Pride, the join is amazing, super cute colors, perfect point, straights, DPN’s, interchangeable, wood, metal, they have it all.

Last week I went to Calistoga mid-week for some R&R and had the best time doing absolutely nothing! Before I left we had all the Fall/Winter yarn stocked and only two boxes remained to be put away, feeeeew, it was a lot of work! I thought to myself as the boxes had been pooring in each day, “what the heck! Was I on drugs when I ordered all this”! The Store looks great and very full, so perfect time for some good R&R in Calistoga! Now for the Good Deed… the next weekend we went to help my Step-mom do some Handyman stuff and hit many a SNAFU! Finally two and a half days later we finished and went on to the mountains(Lake Almanore) no cell service, lots of Family,  lots of  rain, and lots of eating!!! A great time was had by all. Tuesday when I returned to the shop I found more boxes of yarn and goodies had come! OMG!!!! Drugs must have been my problem, yarn drug that is, I just can’t resist it!!!! I am a sick Woman!
