The Nifty Knitter

In January, I visited The Nifty Knitter.  The Nifty Knitter is located in the state of Washington, in a small town called Issaquah.  This store is set into the quaint Gilman Village.  Although the whole village is quaint, so is The Nifty Knitter. The layout of the store is small, yet full of yarn, notions, bags, and inspiration.  There is a table...

It’s A Country Christmas

In a dream, you may wander into a small cozy yarn shop, with a roaring fire, a cute dog all curled up on a loveseat (wearing pearls) surrounded by wonderfully soft colorful yarn.  You would be walking through the store slowly, as you touched merino, yak, mohair, silk and cashmere.  The light is warm, and in the back corner are lovely women...

I've been on a 'StayCation' of sorts all this week.  My husband and I are both self employed and work together.  Wes was off on a kayaking trip up in the Broken Islands, so I took the week off, to just enjoy being at home with our dog.  Well, this is why people go away, because while you are at home, you really aren't on vacation.  With that,...
