That thing you wear on an airplane in case the AC is turned too high

A very strange title. I know. Keep reading and it will make sense. :)

I've spent a lot of time today working on the website.
-There is a new section for knitting needles.
-Messages have been sent to my 'guy' to get more shade cards added as soon as possible.
-One yarn that I've shown quite a bit lately because Beth has gone crazy knitting with it is Misti Hand Paint Chunky. It's on the website now and shade cards should be coming soon.

The colours are awesome. Here are a few - we have 14 in the store right now.
CP56 Purple Turquoise
CP54 Pico
CP53 Vienna
CP47 Sea Jasper

This is a free pattern from Misti's website that you can download.

One skein of Misti Hand Paint Chunky
11mm needles

Think of the shawl pin options.

Gabrielle is growing. The second skein is almost finished.

When I was coming to work today I planned on taking this outside to get a picture. Then it turned bitter cold (I know it's not that cold but I'm not ready for winter yet) and the snow started. I opted for inside pictures.

Have you taken a look at my Flipboard lately? There was a bit of a lull in adding pictures and articles because Flipboard and Ravelry weren't getting along. They've made up and now I can add patterns from Ravelry. Let the 'flipping' begin. Lots of pattern ideas. I also try to find knitting articles to share as well.

And one more thing before I sign off and start working on the Camp brochure. Sally Melville is going to be joining us for Knitting Camp 2014 and while we were emailing back and forth last week she mentioned her newest pattern. L'Enveloppe - pattern available on Ravelry. From Sally
Every time I wear this and everywhere I go, I’ve had it commented on—by strangers on the street, by shop owners or customers, by knitters or non. And each time they say something like “I love that … thing you’re wearing!” No-one knows what to call it, and—frankly—neither do I. Because one arm goes through (as does the neck) but the other arm is free, it’s not a cape, not a poncho, not a shrug, not a shawl, not a cowl. It’s small enough to wear under a coat but big enough to wear instead of one. And it envelops us in style. And so here’s its moniker: L’Enveloppe. (As you might imagine, this is French for envelope. Its style led me there. I suppose its name could have been “That thing you wear on an airplane in case the AC is turned too high,” but that didn’t sit as well on the page.)
It is very cool!! Take a look.
