I’ve also been wearing this Lonely Tree Shawl a lot as well. It’s the smaller version. It just wraps around enough…

Needle Emporium

I had a fabulous day yesterday working at the Needle Emporium with mom. I hadn’t worked there in awhile and had forgotten how fun it can be to help people shop for yarn! The owner of the store, Julie, keeps a well stocked store with new things arriving everyday. It’s like a big treasure chest! If you can’t find something to knit with here you don’t really want to knit 🙂

I haven’t shown pics of the store for awhile now so take a look at the inspiration…

It’s fun to see what people are buying. Lots if Christmas knitting is happening right now and baby gifts. Cowls and wraps are popular too. I found a cowl I’d love to do. Even picked colours. This chateau yarn from Classic Elite is to die for soft…

I like the purple and green and mom liked the blues of course!

If you haven’t been to the store in awhile then time to go! I did break down and get one treat for a lacy project that mom is going to do for me. Stay tuned, it’s a beauty…
