Doing the Happy Dance

Well, it certainly was well worth the wait to get in to our newest LYS!! She had a knitting night tonight and man did we have fun! The long story short is that she did what we all talk about… “wow, wouldn’t it be great if I could open up a yarn store” and all your knitting friends go “yeah, that would be so cool”… Well, she did it! The stock is still rolling in but it’s coming a long very nicely. There’s a great sitting/library/pattern area in the front window with a great view of the comings and goings of the little neighborhood and mountains and a lovely yarn/supply/bag area.

She’s going to get a box to put up for donations of premie and baby hats and blankets for the local hospitals.

I have no pictures of tonight. I’m such a bad blogger picture taker!

BUT to prove I’m not totally hopeless when it comes to squares, I bring you this:

Marianne posted a little bit ago about making squares for Greensburg. Well, there was a pattern so I gave it another go and voila! I did it! I’ve got another one about 1/3 of the way done. I’m using up the last of my Manos. It’s extra warm and squishy. Besides which, I think knitting with a yarn you love this much has got to bring extra goodness to the squares, right?

Everyone stay cool out there in this heat and happy knitting and spinning!
