Images from today

Thursday is the day I spend volunteering at Six Loose Ladies, our local yarn shop.  We’re a not-for-profit, none of us are paid, and we’re a wonderful resource and outlet for local fiber artists and producers.

Anyway, on my way our the door this morning, as the end of the Nor’easter was passing through, I saw this beautiful rainbow.  It was exceptionally bright and lasted a long time.  At one point it was almost complete, arching all the way to the other side of Okemo from downtown Ludlow.

I do a variety of things at the shop.  Along with selling yarn and patterns, I get to help folks who come in with projects in progress.  From deciphering directions, to teaching cast ons and bind offs, it’s always interesting.  Sometimes I get to teach someone how to crochet or knit – brand new beginners –  and we love how excited they are when they bring in their first completed project.

I also help out with the window display.  Sometimes it’s a struggle; sometimes it’s pretty easy.  Suzanne had a great idea for Christmas and by the time she arrived, I had the window empty and ready to go.  And this one went together like a charm.

Remember those  snowflakes I did a while back?  I stiffened them a few days ago with diluted white glue and they were ready for the charity wreath.  We added some silver ribbon and 5 precious felted snowmen who are sporting hand knit scarves and hats.  One even has a little cardinal friend perched on his head.  Pang and a friend made the snowmen, Suzanne and I dressed them with cute hats and scarves.  We hope our contribution brings lots of money at the auction.

    That wreath is stunning. How can I bid on it or do I have to fly up there? I almost would do that. You could do very well making several and selling them.

    The wreath is so pretty. It will be gone quickly, I’m sure.

    Your wreath is lovely and sure to bring in good money for your charity.
