Mr. Canada Post was here early this morning with a big box from Zigzag Stitches. Catherine does an amazing job making these bags. We have lots of new fabrics.
The Wedge bags come in three sizes - small, shawl and sweater.

The drawstring bags are great for smaller projects.
I'm working on getting all the bags on the website.

It's not too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts for the knitter/crocheter in your life.

I just saw this on Ravelry - the pattern for this great hat is free until tomorrow morning (September 21, 9am EST). Thanks Alexis - your Aldershot hat is awesome. Easy to knit and looks great.
Created to optimize those leftover (yet still cherished!) bits of sock yarn, The Aldershot Hat is an easy-to-wear, easy-to-customize stash-buster. Wear it cool and slouchy, or roll up the brim for a cozy fitted beanie. Make it larger or smaller, longer or shorter. Use two colours…or three, or four. Dive into your stash and use your imagination…you can’t go wrong with this super-versatile hat.

Since I was so late writing yesterday I decided to write this morning and then the pressure will be off.

Laine Magazine #9 is in stock.

The patterns are beautiful as always.

Now I have a lot of work updating the website. 

I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather. I heard a commercial on the radio this morning about snow tires and putting them on your car early. YUCK!!!
