Saturdays are great!
Spring is here!!!! So happy to see the sunshine! We had a fun day at the shop today. Three classes going on at the same time. Beginning Hat,Stranding, and Beginning knitting. Our next Weaving Weekend is April 11-12. Im looking forward to seeing what the next group will choose for their colors and textures. Easter is next weekend and spring break too. We will be having some sales on certain yarns that week, so watch FB and here for postings on what will be on sale! I have the bug to get outside and work in my yard. Its hard to choose between the yarn and yarn.. lol..They both start with "Y".. So I usually don't choose, I just do both. I started a new weaving project today with some fine wool thread. Josh G. helped me warp the loom, and Im excited to get started on it. Im going to do a houndstooth weave. I hope to have it done this week. Im weaving it on a 16" Ashford loom. Its a good portable size. This thread is very small but its what most weavers use. I love to use knitting yarns because of all the fun options, but this looks like it will be a beautiful piece of fabric.
The three ladies who took the Stranding class this morning with Josh were killing it! They all had two colors going at the same time, and actually looking like they were enjoying it! Josh is a kind,patient teacher with mad knitting skills. We are lucky ducks to have him here!! My beginning hat knitters were busy starting the Wurm hat. Its neat, you can do it with several colors or just one.. fun knit. My dad has been keeping us company for a few weeks and he has kept us all laughing! Thank you all for being so kind to him, he's my heart. We have new spring babies on the way. This week our sweet Heather Blake welcomed Hadley Ruth into this world. She is beautiful, and so precious! Congratulations to Heather,Aaron, and Sweet grandma Pam Clapp! Our Katie Moroni is next! Cant wait to meet her Hadlee Pearl!. Being a grandparent is the best thing in the world, the love you have for these grand babies is unparalleled. Loving this time of my life. I am going to see my babies in Baton Rouge this next weekend! I can't wait!
I hope and pray your Easter will be filled with love and family! How blessed we are that the stone rolled away! Love you all ! Penny and Linda

There is always something fun going on at the shop. My dad is home from the mission field to have some cataract surgery and it also happens to be his fortieth anniversary of being a missionary to Mexico. One of our sweet customers made him some wonderful lemon bars to help him celebrate. Here is a photo of him with his delicious dessert by Kaye Reilly!
