Becky Anderson's SNOW quilt

Jared's mom, Becky, quilted this beautiful piece. We have it in the shop, on consignment & will have to return it to Becky in March if it doesn't find a new home. We've been blessed by a bounty of snow this season in Telluride - what a great way to commemorate it! Stop by & take a look.

Lita's Sock

Sock #1 is complete! This one was knit on 2 circulars - Lita's preferred method for socks. We can't wait to see how #2 turns out. Nice job, Lita.

Maybe this furry guy knows something, maybe not - but 6 more weeks to play with wool, alpaca or llama yarn seems like a good excuse to us.
