Noel Nite Treats and Surprises

It's been 3 whole years since the Pinon Wood alpacas have paid a visit to Needle Rock & we're so happy to announce that they will be back for Noel Nite 2010! Stop by on Wednesday, Dec 1 for some fantastic photo ops, a chance to learn more about alpaca fleece & fiber & while you're here, c'mon in the shop for refreshments & grab bag discounts on purchases & holiday banter, of course. We hope to see you!

Quick Holiday Projects

Our project table overflows with ideas: fingerless gloves, mittens, entrelac hat, yarn to be needle felted, ornaments & Christmas stockings.
Wonderful friend, Abby, shows off the simplest of fingerless gloves - quickly knit up in Crystal Palace Mochi Plus Chunky.

Neck warmer, again Crystal Palace Mochi Plus Chunky.

Felted wine tote, Wacky Hat of Mountain Colors Homespun & Tahki Stacy Charles Montana made up into a bulky cabled hat.

Anthro Inspired Scarflet in Queensland Kathmandu Chunky - 1 skein + a beautiful button & you've got a unique gift. Nice job on the knitting, Ginger!

Mountain Colors to Brighten your Day

This is SO incredibly gorgeous! 2 fibers from Mountain Colors on 2 different sized afghan crochet hooks - the pin totally pulls the whole thing together & how clever of Janet to wear a matching sweater underneath!

Successful KnitIn!

My memo said we were could knit - so there I go!
There actually IS phone, set to loudspeaker in the middle of the table. We could hear Kate loud & clear & what fun purls she had to share with us.

Our homey kitchen table is host to some pretty fun stuff - this was our first author many more! Thanks for being our photographer, Daiva & bringing books to boot!
