Yay! A new sweater. :):)
It's great because it's knit top-down and you can try it on as you go. :) Feel free to stop by for the pattern & yarn. The yarn is Mirasol Nuna, made of merino, silk & bamboo so it's really soft and not itchy.

A Time of Need
As the holiday season approaches,
we remember the people in need here in Michigan.
We are accepting donations to help the local people in Michigan who are in need.
$1 minimum donations may be made to
receive a "bear" that will adorn our shop windows.
A portion of all proceeds will go toward Gleaners and the remainder will go towards
stuffed teddy bears called "Curly the Bear" who will be donated to Goodfellows.
You may also purchase Curly the Bear for $20 and the proceeds will go toward
our local Goodfellows organization.
Also, watch for dates and times for Charity Sit-n-Knits
during the month of December.
