Winter has arrived

Well, winter has finaly arrived on the Carrying Place Road. I have been bragging to everyone that I can still see grass this week and Mother Nature just put an end to that .
The snow is piling up outside and I suspect there will be a few toboggans going down the hill in Hannah Park this evening. Although there is lots of snow, it feels warmer and even I could spend some time outside.
I have been patiently waiting for a new yarn arrival this week but it has been detained and we won't see it until at least Tuesday of next week. We did however, receive a shipment of Manos wool this week and it is quite funky and great for arm knitting. It seems to be the rage and if it gets me another generation of knitters then I am all for it.
I have been spending a lot of time with the dye pots lately and trying to build up a stash of 8 value swatches but they are selling as quickly as I dye them. I'm trying to figure out how to squeak out a few more hours in my day for dyeing. I'm having a blast and appreciate the support from all the hookers.
Jayne has been working on a few new classes this winter and I can't wait for their debut. She's been working on a beautiful quilted jacket that would be lovely for all you ladies that like to get out and walk . It's light weight and warm for those cool spring days and yes , they are just around the corner.
Janice Daniels will be teaching an introduction to rug hooking to those of you that would like to try your hand at hooking.
My mixed media group is a great place to come and do most anything . Today saw a quilt as you go being finished , a beautiful cowl being crocheted and Deb was sashing blocks that she has embroidered.
Tuesday afternoons our knitters meet and they are knitting everything from socks to lace.
Wednesday's the rug hookers meet and I am always stunned by the beautiful pieces that are being turned out.
Drop in and spend a morning or afternoon. We are there to help with any problems that you might be having and the coffee is always on.
