And, we’re so pleased to have had healthy twin grandbabies, Alexis and Cameron, born on 11/24, both weight 7 lb 2 oz!!!! Aren’t they precious?
It seems like a short time ago that my daughter-in-law and son stopped in the store while Stephanie Pearl-Mcphee was teaching and I remember feeling a slight annoyance thinking how busy I was and couldn’t it wait, but my attitude changed real quick when they showed me the ultrasound — twins! Wow!
Its been an interesting pregnancy for my daughter-in-law, with dehydration, pre-term labor and now, today at 38 weeks, being induced. Will they be able to deliver naturally? One or both? How big are they? Healthy? Will they need help once they come home? Will they both be able to come home?
Waiting, waiting ….. i have a pair of booties to get off the needles and pass some time.
Wow! What beautiful pieces. We had fun at UFO night doing a little try-on session.

Not sure what shape or style works best for you? This link is a good visual of the different styles. And, you can try them on in person at Knitting Today only until December 9!
If you want to do a KAL with us on Sweater Nights (the 2nd and 4th Thursday nights from 6-9), we’ll order the yarn to start after the 1st of the year. In the meantime, you may want to get your book so you can start looking over the construction and fit information.
Wow! I do love Thanksgiving. Its about the only time each year I get two days off in a row. I did work yesterday most of the day though simply because its been a hectic last couple of months and I’m behind on paperwork.
Good news on the twin grandbabies — Lukinda will be induced Monday! We’re so thankful she made it to 38 weeks and so far all looks healthy for those babies. I am so blessed that I can bring Jacob to work with me for a few days to help them out. But boy, to think that Trent’s little family of three is exploding to five gives me goose bumps.
Other things I’m thankful for:
- Tara going to community college debt free and having two years to work side-by-side. Not easy all the time but recognizing each others strengths (and weaknesses) has helped both of us grow and given a whole new look and focus to the store. Its hard to believe next March well be our 20 year anniversary and it all started so I could work from home and stay with my baby. Now, Tara is a knitting maniac, always has her knitting with her, always planning the next several projects, even designing some now.
- Haley is a senior this year. Wow! She’s looking at going in the Coast Guard. I pray that works out for her as she would be an excellent protector and rescuer. She finished a hat for a close friend yesterday! It only took a week to knit on size 2 needles. She’s not fooling me any longer. She can finish all those UFO projects struck in bags. She almost rivals me in the number!
- Tom! My provider, protector, cheerleader. he’s been using his time off to garage sale and sell things on ebay (icefisherman1) instead of knit. We have a goal to be debt free in three years so he can retire and work alongside me. I’m so glad we share interests and have a goal as we enter another phase of marriage. He’s getting the urge to start another sweater. It looks like he’s leaning toward Fair Isle.
- Knitting Today customers — that’s each and every one of you. What would I do without having someone pop in to gain inspiration, pick up supplies, and share their sorrows and joys? We exist because of you and I’m so thankful you chose Knitting Today to be your local yarn store. It seems so simple just to say “thank you” but I mean it from the bottom of my heart!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Lea–Ann
Now taking orders for Nightfall Yarn. A gradient dyed yarn to make the beautiful Stellanti Shawl. Contact us to order your favorites now!
It’s always hard for me to choose a project for a road trip. i have class samples to do, sweaters to finish, my ongoing lace knitting, socks, and baby blankets.
Today though? It’s going to be baby booties for the twins-to-be. Plus, I’m trying two new products to our store, Knitting Today. They are Cascade 220 Superwash Sport and 6″ sharp hiyahiya double points. I usually use the magic loop technique. Especially while in the car. I couldn’t resist and cast on last night.
The yarn knits well without splitting. The needles are lightweight, get into the stitch easy. I haven’t done any decreases yet. Plus, I’m knitting a sport weight yarn on size 2 needles, but there is a lot of give to the garter stitch. I think they’ll be cozy warm yet still move with the little,piggly-wigglys when they get here (any time now that they are at 36 weeks and momma is dilated to 3cm).
What are you knitting?
