It's Christmas time, and I have an early gift for you...
As promised, our December CAL is a brand new reindeer pattern! You can download the pattern here, or on ravelry, and then join the ravelry group to share your progress.

I ♥ my LYS

I was fortunate enough to go on a few trips this year, and each trip had at least an afternoon set aside to find a local yarn shop. I'm always jealous of the selections they have since my area is strictly limited to "craft shop" yarn. I could spend hours just dreaming up what to make, but then my husband says "are you going to buy anything?"... Well, that's how I end up with a single skein of just about everything in the place!

I don't mind buying online, but I would love to have a great yarn shop around to get a real feel for what I'm buying, and that instant gratification!

Do you have a LYS that you love? Do you own LYS? I want to hear all about it!

Here are 2 of the shops I visited recently:
Newbury Yarns in Boston MA: http://newburyyarns.com/
Strands and stitches in Laguna Beach CA: http://www.strandsandstitches.com/
