Snow days

It's supposed to snow. A lot. On Tuesday and Wednesday. There is a good chance I'll cancel the knit-in (more definite info will be emailed tomorrow - tuesday - so you can plan ahead), and, depending on what the weather is doing (up to 20 inches????) there is a possibility of closing even earlier on Wednesday. So please call before coming to the shop that day!
Twenty inches?????? Where are we going to put it all?

The message board outside the Altamont Resuce Squad says "Groundhog, please don't see your shadow!"

On another note....
Poor Mandy.

Sound familiar? Doesn't she just look miserable? She hates it and I feel terrible about that. But, she has to have it for now. She has some obsessive licking behaviors, causing some sores on her paws, so we have to do this until they heal. She's crashing around the house. (It's a tiny bit funny, but mostly I just feel bad for her.)

The Wonderful Wallaby KAL is going along wonderfully. Here is the progress of those who have been coming to the Saturday meet-ups:

Sue Z's, making an adult size with Encore:

Yvette's, making a child's size with Encore Tweed:
