So Many Quilts to look at, mind boggling!! Such very talented quilters...You have to make an attempt to stop by next Spring to view these beauties, grab a quick homemade lunch and dessert and pick up yarn, fabric and goodies.....Sorry no pics of the quilts, I was too busy!!

Knitting Retreat Weekend...

Our hostess, Jeanette, owns and operates Soo Nipi Lodge. Once a dairy barn, after a 2 year renovation, it can now house up to 20 quests. Accomodations include a Spa/Workout Gym and all amenities for a wonderous mountain stay.

We shared all meals and activities in the main room and sunroom...lots of space and sunshine, when it shows itself!!

New friends abound...this will be an annual event PP will partake in for many years to come!!

We went on a "Field Trip" to Hodge Podge Fiber and Yarn Shop in downtown Newport. Sue's shop is almost as comfortable as AKG! Just kidding...MUCH more yarn and notions but the SAME warm and cozy feelings as AKG...Loved every minute of being there and can't wait to return!! Thank you Sue for your hospitality.

This was the best weekend away I have had in ages!! 6 knitters from Purling Petals, 3knitters from Ravel Rousers and 8 other knitters from MA, NH, Conn and ME. We had a ball. Great food, wonderful accommodations, beautiful scenery.....knitters are the best!!! We discovered lots of "Kindred Spirits" on this yarn crawl!!

Mr. "Snowball"

Here he is in all his glory!! Mr. Snowball...our newest addition to our family of Furry Friends...He was given to us by a spinning friend and her family. He is the sweetest bunny, LOVES to be held and has a veracious appetite!! He has some skin issues, hair lose and a fur ball in his tummy that you can actually feel!! So, after a long and arduous search for an Exotic Vet...we found Dr. Sonya Dennis...she and her team are so awesome!!! Poor Snowball has hair mites...nasty little critters only seen by a microscope...which I had the pleasure of viewing...UCK!! This type of mite is very common in bunnies, not passable to other animals or humans! VERY curable but I have to be extremely diligent with his treatment of Selamectin, speciality foods to address the Fur Ball, brushing to get rid of the dander and keeping him away from the ladies!! Of course, that is not a problem since NONE of our bunnies are fixed...and there is to be NO cohabitation!!!!!

I asked Bob to take a few pics so you could see this very Handsome Guy...I am working on acquiring an addition Hutch to place on the front porch by the shop door so each morning a Different Bunny will Greet You!!! Hopefully you will all meet him very soon...

Gift Certificate of the Month Club...

On Wednesday, Jenn Belcher and her cutey boy Ryan came into the shop. Ryan was the first male of the day! He is a 2 1/2yr old bundle of jumping joy!! He picked the winning name for the club this month.........Cheryl Perkins.....AGAIN!!! What are the chances of one person winning both months?? What a lucky son of a gun!!
Cheryl has a $60 GC to spend on yarn, books or anything else she desires here in the shop. Congratulations to you Cheryl!!!

April is here and we have already started...2 so far....Come on in girls...We can't let Cheryl win a third time!!!
