Stitch n Pitch, and farewell

Karen had a fabulous time at the Mariners Stitch n Pitch last week. She even got interviewed by the FSN guy! I didn't manage to catch the game, so I didn't get to see her, durn it. He asked what she was knitting, which was a dish cloth (Karen loves dish cloths!), but he said he didn't DO dishes, and turned to another knitter! Phooey on him. Anyway, a big big thanks to the folks at Lantern Moon for putting this together for all the Portland area knitters!

Yesterday we big a sad goodbye to Janice, who is leaving us to spend quality time with her grandson Kaleb. Luckily she's nearby and promises to check in with us and bring Kaleb along with her. I appreciated Janice for her calm under fire when customers occassionally get cranky on the phone, her taking the long view when bad days happen, her fabulous purple fingernails, her monster mask stories, and the myriad things that make Janice Janice. We'll miss you!

Cathy has a finished sock to show, but the colors are not even remotely true, so I'm gonna hold off on that one....
