Husbands, Daughters, Boyfriends and Dogs

Saturdays in the store are great because you get to see all the customers who work during the week and can't come in until Saturday, and many times they are accompanied by their lovers and family members who are willing to tolerate a side trip to a yarn shop if it means they can sit down for minute in a day of shopping.

We usually aren't too thrilled about dogs in the store, but this guy, Winston, came in his own pink and green suede carrying case, didn't say a peep, and was unusually observant as the other shoppers slowly walked the aisles and fondled yarn. He is smiling while showing his lower teeth. Very Cute! By the way, Winston came all the way from Piscataway to buy yarn with his mom.

Judith, a prolific sock knitter, lives far enough away that I don't get to see her too often, but it is always great when she comes in and occasionally she brings her husband. They are up in the right corner, Winston in the left...

Jessica spun the yarn for this luscious shawl and finished in the store while her great boyfriend sat and talked with us. Read more about the shawl by clicking on 'Jessica's Blog' in the links section along the right side of this blog.

Tina came in with her family today and here is a great picture of her with her daughter. Tina lives in my rural neighborhood and has battled the great water situation this past month along with all of my other neighbors. We are not having a drought in Springfield Township, if anyone asks. Just ask my sheep and their rotting hooves.

Awww... what a great post! The dog is just adorable! Thanks for the nice comments about my guy and the shawl. I finished blocking it yesterday and it should be up on the blog tomorrow. :)
