Its Beginning to Look alot Like Christmas...

I'm playing a little catch up with blog posts this week (translation... I finally downloaded pics off the camera!), so please bear with me....

On December 1 & 2, A Knitter's Garden held its annual Holiday Fair... at which I had quite a few of my own knit creations on sale, as well as homemade doggy cookies that I spent weeks 2 days baking and trying to keep my own kids' paws off of! Here's a photo recap of the festive time...

Photos of the fair part, which was held in the dining room.

My Mom made one of her beautiful
teddy bears for the sale...

Now some photos of the shop itself, which now encompasses 2 rooms. For those who aren't familiar with Joanne's wonderful shop, A Knitter's Garden is located inside of her lovely home making for a very cozy, relaxed and welcoming shop. Stop by, browse, pull up a chair, chat and knit... come by on a Wednesday evening for guild and Joanne will surely have tea waiting!

available... and get this, I'm right next to the

basket of Seacoast Handpainted Yarns!

You are also sure to hear find the shop's official greeters Luke & Angus.

Mr. Luke reminds me a lot of my Zeus when he was a pup... "airplane ears" and all!

Stay tuned for more catching up pics later this week... maybe even some actual knitting!

Wow, looks like Christmas explosion. ;-} That's my fave type of cozy shop to browse and sit.

What a fun place to shop! I would love to have somewhere like that to hang out with all the other knitting gals. I travel 75 miles to my nearest LYS, and it's not as cozy as yours!

I'm sorry I don't live closer - I would have been there!
