Do I look like a bagel shop?

A guy walked in today and stopped short saying "Oh. I'm in the wrong place." I asked what he was looking for and he said, "the bagel shop". What about the outside of my building made him think this was the bagel shop? The YARN SHOP sign? the word YARN in the window? the actual YARN in the window? I pointed him toward Hungerford Market and he went on his way. Just thought that was pretty funny.
Knitting has come to a stand still for the past two days. Hoping to get back to it later today.
Meanwhile here is what others have knit!:
Deb Anderson's very pretty Leaf Scarf made with Noro Kureyon, in her own pattern, which is now for sale in the shop!:
Robin has been on a finishing spree. Here is her enlarged, soft and cozy, 8-hour baby blanket made with Encore:
And her cotton bathmat:
Joan's (she back!!!) Mini Mochi sock in pretty rainbow colors:
This sock yarn is unbelievably soft (mmmmmmm, merino).
And here is Joan's previously posted baby sweater, given to it's future recipient, Megan's baby!!! (coming in Oct):
Iryth's adorable baby booties made from The Periwinkle Sheep sock yarn:

Trudi's wonderfully soft Shalom cardi made with a chunky yarn that I can't remember the name of !:
Nancy's beautiful drop stitch scarf made with the Ella Rae Lace Merino:
Kim's georgeous Judy's Colors Christmas Stocking:
This has some wonderful braid detail -- these are kits and I'm looking into getting some into the shop!
And, finally, Kim's cute Scrappy Flap Hat:
This happens to be the same pattern that Trudi will be teaching in the two-colors-in-one-hand-stranding-for-continental-knitter's class!
It's supposed to be rainy tomorrow (Saturday) -- good day for coming to the shop to knit!
