Open on Mondays

Guthrie isn't quite dry so I worked on Log Cabin squares today. Number ten is finished and number eleven is half way done. I wasn't going to blog today but decided to write for a few minutes before bed. Beth and I had a very good day with our Fantasy Football team. We won our match and we will have the most points of any team in our league.

Dad and Lucy are having a good time in Myrtle Beach. There was a lot of rain but no damage. Now they have visitors for the next week. Dad says they need a bigger couch. They have a huge sectional but four adults and a dog (who is as big as an adult) means there isn't much room left over.

Tomorrow we start packing for the Knitters' Fair. Don't worry - there will be lots of yarn in the store if you can't make it to Kitchener.
We used Donegal Cottage Tweed Sock for Espe and the yarn and sample will be on display at the show.

Here are a few accessories that are coming

More Shawl Cuffs from Knox Mountain should be arriving on Tuesday or Wednesday. Some will come to the show and the rest will be with Cathy in the store.

It's just 6 more sleeps until the Knitters' Fair. Here are a few tips for those coming to the show.

- trust me, there is lots of yarn. If you don't like lines or crowds, wait until noon to come. There will still be lots for you to see. If booths sell out of something, most are more than willing to ship it to you after the show
- bring lunch with you. Then you don't have to stand in line.
- wear something that you have knit. It's always fun to see completed projects.
- if you see something you like, mark down the booth you saw it in. I can't tell you how many times we get frantic people at the end of the day because they forgot where they saw something
- go through your Ravelry library and make notes of yarn that you are interested in. If there is a certain pattern, print that pattern and bring it with you. Also bring information on the yarn. What it's made of. Tension. Yardage. That will make it easier for me and other booths to help you substitute. When you come in the store I can do it on the computer but we have limited Internet access at the show.
- please have patience.
- the Fair isn't just for knitters. It is put on by a knitting guild - hence the name. Crocheters please come to the show. There is lots of fabulous yarns that you and your hooks will have fun working with.

Don't forget that our Fall/Winter hours have started and the store is open again on Mondays.

Now it's bedtime.
