I’ve had a few folks assume that I would be closed today, but my plan is to be open my regular hours. Additionally, my product lines that are Made in the US are on sale through Sunday, and include: Brown Sheep Co., Imperial Stock Ranch, Peace Fleece, Dream in Color, Mountain Colors, Pagewood Farm, Lion Brand (Kitchen Cotton), Harmony Skin Care lotions, and One of a Kind Buttons. There’s a way in which this calls attention to how many of the yarns we knit with and love come from other places, but that is pretty true throughout our lives as consumers. As knitters and crocheters, we are taking part of the production process of knitted clothing, accessories, and gifts into our own hands, so we’re always producing things that are handmade in America. And we are all part of the great big world. But for this week, we’ll spotlight a few great domestic companies!
As for knit night, if folks turn up and are game for some knitting, I’ll stick around. I will need to wrap things up by 9 to make it back home to watch fireworks with my family, though!
