I hope that you all will have, or have had, very happy holidays! I have certainly seen many beautiful gifts in the making, and those you love will be delighted to receive them!
This past year has been my 30th year in business and I have all of YOU to thank for that! I am so fortunate to be able to continue doing what I so love to do. Thank you, also, to those who donated yarn. I have passed along bags and bags of yarn that will be knitted and crocheted into items that will keep many people warm.
I hope that all of you will be facing the new year with hope, love, and your knitting! - marji
