Mimi and Purl Fall in Love...

I brought Purl in to the store today to see her Auntie Mimi (another Lover of All Pugs) and the two of them fell madly in love. Purl slept on her neck while Mimi knitted a square on her Lizard Ridge Afghan. We have her Lizard on display till this coming Sunday and copies of the pattern free to a good home with a healthy sampling of Noro Kureyon. Which, by the way, we got in a new color of Kureyon, bringing our color count to 20. Oh, and Mimi works on Sundays and plays 80's music, so if you like Boy George, Sunday is the day to buy some yarn at Mosaic!

How about a picture of some Pagewood Farms Yarn...drool...

Here is a picture of Molly and Kit chatt'in it up...

Purl will be coming into the store with me everyday, so come by and experience the puppy..she still has puppy smell!

Ok, the above picture is the first picture I have taken of Purl that isn't blurry...but Mimi is! Whatthe@#$%!!!!

Time to Get Ready for Classes!

Just want to give a shout-out to Kara, at All Stix...she is making us some VT Hokie knitting needles and we cannot wait! Imagine, at Lane Stadium knitting with VT needles! Cheering our Basketball players on with our VT needles high above our heads! Click click click! So whats new around these here parts? Well we are trying to get our act together and get our class schedule together. Not so easy, as you can well imagine. Coming in shortly for our winter months, Pure Merino by Berroco, more new colors of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino aran, Farmhouse yarns' Andy's merino, and Pagewood Farms' Sock yarn. Very special. Unusual. Gorgeous. Don't forget to come knit with us tonite till 9pm and every Wednesday night...but remember, this group of knitters are a racy bunch. If you don't want to hear a swear word or two and don't want your hair to curl...skip it. But you'll definately get insprired!
