Shop Update and Pattern Contest Winner!

Someone…  who shall remain nameless…  Someone in our house is celebrating a birthday this week.  A big, BIG birthday.  The sort of age you know you’ll get to someday, but you never really believe you’ll ever reach.  A tough birthday   …but a fun birthday.

So, on Sunday, we had a big family celebration, and it was a fantastic day.  You can imagine the scene in your mind: a table spread with amazing food, glasses filled deep with buttery white wine, a luscious chocolate cake covered in strawberries… And everywhere, everywhere that beautiful, dreamy, glowing light of a summer’s afternoon, gently dappled as it falls through the trees.  It was a glorious day, and a glorious start to a new decade.

Today’s shop updates are yarns that evoke beautiful, lazy, summer days.  Days filled with good food and plentiful wine.  Days filled with golden sunshine, and evenings of glorious twilight.  Even if it’s not your birthday this week, you deserve a little celebration too…
