Oh my gosh, it is so cold right now! -10 degrees! Eek! I just finished work at Wild Purls and was wishing for an "automatic car starter"! It was way to cold to get into your freezing car at 8:30 at nite. Too cold to tip-toe out to the hot tub, that's for sure!
Our store is so nice, warm and cozy, especially when the fireplace is revved up.
Our customers love our store! In fact, travelers who shop with us always comment on how great Wild Purls is and many of them make sure to tell us we are in their top 5 knitting stores.
This evening, while our classes were happening, a non-knitter named Anne came in and was so inspired, she signed up for beginning knitting, bought some needles, a book and some fabulous Lumpy Bumpy! She also said knitting was on her list of things to do before she died. I'm glad she wasn't 90! Now Anne will have plenty of time to fall in love and become a yarn addict.
Here is a great little headwarmer I made for Alice the week before Christmas. It is an entrelac pattern, from Knitty.com, titled "Quant". I chose the yarn, Lorna's Laces/Lion & Lamb, a wool and silk blend. She'll make a cute snowbunny while snowboarding up at Red Lodge.
