Mosaic's diverse, albeit crazy employees...

Welcome Yarn Sluts out there, we thought we'd share some pictures of our team, not all, just some...and share a few our our favorite things for the Holidays! Up top is Loren, who is a Va Tech student, Earth Lover Extraordinaire and motorcycle rider! She is showing off a sock she has made out of Jo Sharp for her Grandpa's Ginormous feet. Here is a picture of Jane with her finished Mitten made out of Gedifra Metallic yarn...You have no idea how proud she is of that Mitten! She owns the clothing store "Bonomo's" across the parking lot.

This is Belinda, who says she has Restless Leg Syndome, which is really great for a boss who wants her employees to stay busy! I have a suspicion that she smokes crack in the bathroom. I could be wrong, I have been wrong about stuff like that before. But she has a heart of gold and an fierce earnestness to do good for you! On to the next drug addict (heehee kidding!) is our resident pattern writer, expert knitter, all around great gal, Sandy(in the red). Got a question? She's got the answer. She loves the Knitpicks circulars so I am not sure how long it will be before she gets the pink slip but...

Cause we do have quite a few Denise needles awaiting adoption, especially the new pink ones that donate proceeds of each Kit to Breast Cancer.

Here is Virginia, seamstress for Bonomo's and our occasional helper...she has been knitting for over 60 years so you better believe she can help you with that dropped stitch of yours.
Oh and so much yarn...skeins and skeins and skeins and skeins...40 colors of Cascade 220 for $7. What a value, yes? Below is Debbie Bliss' Pure silk and Pure Cashmere. Get yourself a pair of Ebony Lantern Moon Needles and 6 skeins of Pure Cashmere for Christmas and you will be in Knitting Nirvana. The only thing better? A basket of Pug puppies.
