I was searching for Lily Sugar and Cream yarn to complete a project, and I remembered that Peaches & Creme yarns are made in America, somewhere in the South. I searched and sure enough, they are made in Old Fort, NC! (That’s near Asheville, if you’re not a local.)
I found their website: http://elmore-pisgah.com/ and you can order straight from it. Be sure and read their “about us” page. Additionally, they make Honeysuckle and America’s Best yarns and crochet threads. They also have an outlet store in Old Fort. I’ll be shopping with them in the future! Support America!!!!
(Bernat owns Lily Sugar & Cream. Their yarns are made in Canada. I don’t feel too bad about shopping with neighbors. The Canadians did free the Iran hostages for us, but I am telling my age!)
My mom loves the old PHOTOPLAY magazines. Here’s what the cover looked like the month she was born. Hmmmn. ‘Wonder if this had anything to do with Grandma naming her “Jean?”
This is from http://www.magazineart.org/. It’s cover art and ads, mind you, but sometimes you can track down content, too.
I know I knit at least 12 caps for PJ before he was born. Here he is later on the night he was born wearing the first cap I knit before I knew if he was going to be a boy or girl. That’s his grandpa holding him.
I’ve not been blogging in over 8 months! I’m babysitting this little fellow, born 2/17/10. He was born at home and weighed 9 lbs. even! I’m very proud to be his Nana!
