Uplifting Words

Our newest Private Label yarn arrived during the Fall Yarn Crawl. The colorway names are one word each and they were taken from quotes I found inspiring and uplifting. Here are the colorways and their names...
Accomplish
You can have anything you want if you want it badly enough. You can be anything you want to be, do anything you set out to accomplish if you hold to that desire with singleness of purpose.  - Abraham Lincoln
Ambition Ambition is enthusiasm with a purpose.  - Frank Tyger
Believe Be brave to stand for what you believe in even if you stand alone.  -Roy T. Bennett
Confidence Without self-confidence, we are as babes in the cradle -Virginia Woolf

Courage Forgot to get a pic before it sold out!
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear - Mark Twain

Goals
If you set goals and go after them with all the determination you can muster, your gifts will take you places that will amaze you. -Les Brown

Gratitude
Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. G…

Knitting Mojo: Missing in Action

Have you misplaced your knitting mojo? I'm not sure where I left it...I was knitting at least 5 projects at once, dividing my time and not really getting anywhere on any of them...and I just lost my mojo.

I'm positive it's at the bottom of a project bag, but I'm not really driven to discover which one.

Could it be the bag that contains a crescent shawl that seemed like a good idea in my head? Maybe it's in the project bag with the hat that I recently finished designing...but can't remember where I put the darn thing! Or maybe it's even in the depths of my ottoman in the Family Room where projects go to die....or be frogged.

It's funny how you can be cruising along and all of a sudden you notice your mojo has vanished. Nothing really sounds fun, and I don't even have the drive to cast on something new!

But I'm not going to sweat it...this happens from time to time! I'm thinking a little cross stitch project and just giving myself the chance …

Giving Back

This year the Auburn Downtown Association put together a drive to collect items for Seniors in Need. Our shop was one of about 10 businesses downtown who collected and it's overwhelming to hear the grand totals!! I know Auburn gets a bad wrap, I hear it a lot, but when it comes to heart...this community has it in spades!

Not only were the donations impressive, but it is also so cool that this was done with pretty much no advertising. We just tossed some wreaths at local businesses, gave minimal direction and they ran with it. Business owners chatted with their customers, who really are more like family than customers. They shared information about seniors in need and the public really came through for us.

Then another magical thing happened. When our customers shopped at OTHER small businesses for the items on the list, those businesses added more goodies for the seniors.

THIS is why we need Main Streets and Local, Small Businesses!!!

I am so proud of our community, proud to be p…
