Recently my friend and I heard one of our local yarn shops will be closing its doors.

What a bittersweet thing.

I don't actually know the specifics of why this shop is closing.  Perhaps the owner needs a break, or maybe changing consumer habits required an impossible adaption.

As I said my good-byes, I felt embarrassingly thrilled with great deals on adoptable skeins.

I believe the only thing that remains for me to do is create something beautiful.

Don't forget to support the neighborhood shops.  It's important.

It has been feeling like winter around here.  I am OK with that.  I love the change of seasons.  Not having to shovel  may be one of the few pluses of renting instead of owning.

Recently I was invited to a delicious dinner.

There is nothing like a warming stew (and sake) when surrounded by snow.  Yum!
