Getting Ready for the holidays....I know, it's unbelievable. One of my kids asked me what we were doing for Thanksgiving; I'm not sure what season is it, time is going so fast. Maybe the change of weather will make us think of fall and winter things.

New Stuff coming into the store includes beautiful Christmas Sock kits by Judy's Colors. We couldn't resist the combination of colors and knitting techniques. The charts themselves are works of art.

Two new button companies grace the shelves; Bull's Eye Buttons, beautifully hand crafted of clay and reasonably priced, and imported buttons from Creative Designs. I'm knitting another Einstein Coat of our hand dyed Alfresco and we found a Bull's Eye Button that will look great with it.

We also have Mission Falls 1824 Wool and Cotton and pattern books available on Woolbearers online store,

Ryann is working on the Manos Christmas Wreath that was featured in last year's Knit Simple Holiday issue. Along with the Pom Pom Christmas Tree Barb made for us a couple of years ago, we have a good start for holiday decorating.

My husband actually washed windows so we can put our electric candles on the sills. I love to come home in the dark and find the lights on.

Make your Christmas gift list and remember the knitters in your life, as well as your own 'have to haves'!

Remember, too, anything you want that we don't have in stock, we can try to get for you!!!
