My blog is changing! It will now focus on my new shop, getting it ready, class schedules, upcoming specials and new arrivals. I'll probably still have to mention my grandson occassionally.

Knots & Needles - Revised
That's going to be the name of my shop. I found out that I don't have to have any licenses. I just need to have the fire marshall inspect the space. Taxes are going to be a nightmare, so I think I'll have to beg my ex-employee Rita (she lost her job also) to be my accountant. I'm just waiting for my money to come in so I can rent the space and get started. Trying to make decisions on should I have a big table for everyone to sit around or should I have a comfy couch here and a few chairs there. It's very scarey!!
On a less scarey note, I finished a bomber jacket for my son. I had knit this pattern or someting like it a few years ago. I couldn't find the pattern, so I improvised. I started to knit it all in one piece and then decided not to do that. (The next one I do will be in one piece). The last time I made this sweater, I didn't like the collar, it kinda hung out there like bat wings, so I modified the collar and then stitched it down. I really like the way it turned out. I get a picture of it and post it later.
Well, here's a picture of the bomber jacket finished. The bad thing about this jacket is that it doesn't fit my son. I thought him and his dad were closer in size than they really are I guess. So, guess who gets the jacket. I need to get some more yarn and make another before Christmas and adjust the sleeves and girth of the sweater for the kid.
I'm 46 years old, mother of 2 and grandma of 1. I'm divorced but still live as roommates with my ex. I love to knit and buy yarn. After I was laid off from my job of 9 years I decided to go with my yarn and knitting obsession and follow a different path. I decided to open a yarn shop. Unwind, A Yarn Shop will open December 1st
