"More of Saturday Afternoon......."

After parting ways with Woody at Sardine, we drove down Willy Street to the newly moved yarn shop, "Off The beaten Path". I'd not known about their move until I read an article in last weeks Isthmus (although, Don had heard about it at work from a fiber friend of ours), so we thought we'd go check it out. I think it is smaller space than they had in their home on Femrite Drive in Monona, or perhaps the space is just better utilized, but personally, I don't think so. Although, I'm sure it is much nicer to have the shop out of their home. They were doing a brisk business while we were there......the article made a definite impact on letting people know of their move.

We'd parked outside the front of Jolly Bob's, and Don liked the looks of this. ;)

Just what is that under the snow? A Bear?

Don's sisters sent me a book on re-cycling socks into stuffed animals. They are pretty cute so I did go out and buy "filling/stuffing" yesterday to give some of them a try. Don has already donated a pair of socks to the cause. :)

Can't wait to see the sockimals! I went to knitter's guild last night and the lady who wrote Itty Bitty Toys was there with samples. I think I must knit me a giraffe and a frog that flips around and turns into a turtle!
