Best wishes for a peaceful and joyous holiday season!

Thanks to everyone who’s been so supportive over the last year. Your knitting goodness is appreciated! Extra gratitude to all of the people who contributed to our ongoing efforts at Beth Israel’s newborns with special needs. We’ve donated so many hats, blankets, booties and sweaters so their staff can prepare helpful packages for families in need.

May 2015 bring you much joy and cheer!

Beautiful Knit Afghans on Show!

Knitting an afghan on a cold evening is an New England pleasure. Ever more pleasing is looking at our customer’s projects done on those New England nights.  Janet Brussard brought in her glorious Ramblin Rose afghan and we couldn’t help but gasp! Isn’t it wonderful?
