We have new wooden crates to use in the booth. Today we've been filling them with yarn and kits.
Gale - the poncho that we have hanging in the store.
Sarah wore Gale at the Knitters' Fair and after the show picked up the yarn to knit herself one. Here are some comments from her blog (gogolittlered.com)
Gale is knit like two big rectangles with some arm shaping and a loose neck. It really has a sweater feel and doesn’t flow out around the body. It’s closed at the side with a button. The first thing I noticed was that it was warm without being stifling. I also felt that I could still wear a coat with it on. My big beef about ponchos is that when it gets really cold out it’s awkward to wear a coat over top.
It's much later and the fourth baseball game of the day is on. The first one didn't end well. The Jays are in trouble if they don't start hitting.
After a long day in the store it's time to say goodnight. Saturday of a long weekend can go one of two ways. The store could be totally dead because everyone is out visiting with their family or it can be crazy busy because people have come from out of town to see their family and visit while they're close.
