Christmas on the way!

Christmas is in the air and it smells like Namaste bags and machine washable yarn...and cookies. There was plenty of new things in the store and we showed them off last night. Like the new chic Namaste bags in red. Vibrant and beautiful, they'll hold your projects and catch compliments.

We also had a sampling of hors d'oeuvres and cookies. Deb brought in stuffed mushrooms and generously handed out the recipe. They were delicious and fresh and looked beautiful.

Amidst of all the hub bub and food, was yarn piled on yarn and then insulated of fresh unopened bags of yarn. Machine washable yarn from Plymouth.

Mary also brought in a new dress she made for a little girl. This cute dress is made with all the cute details any jumper needs.

Pockets in seed stitch and accents of gold, red and white garter stitch sewn on the front.

An adorable hem in garter and seed stitch. Done in stockinette stitch, it comes together as a beautiful heirloom piece and warm for the winter. There's so many little details she put into this dress that just shows how much care one can put into a knitted garment for someone they love.
