I have been snowed in at my daughter’s house for four days now. Fortunately, Mama is here with me to help watch PJ. The only craft supplies I have with me are in my knitting case.. I had made PJ a cap earlier from Bernat Bamboo yarn, but it was too short. Luckily, I had some more of the yarn and a crochet hook in my case, so I increased the depth of the cap by adding several rows of single crochet.
My daughter’s friend, Cindy, is expecting a baby girl anyday now. Because she is using ladybugs in the nursery, I knit her a white cap (embellishments to be revealed later.) I always launder my caps before giving them, so I just threw this in with PJ’s wash since I’m still using “baby soap” in his wash. Well, wouldn’t you know, the cap stuck to an exposed piece of velcro on one of his bibs. To get it off, I had to really pull, and it made this fuzzy place:
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!!!!
