In Knitted Stitches

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Thu, Oct 1, 2009 at 1:20 PM

It's a bit chilly out, don't you think? Kind of an abrupt-seeming transition into fall, actually. Or... is it? My iPhone predicts sunny skies and warmer temps by Tuesday, so who knows. The upside to climate change is that it keeps things interesting. Regardless, when the weather does chill out, we are finally getting to break out the sweaters and knitted bits of all kinds from their cedar-scented hibernation. This always seems to be a telling moment, when you reactivate a piece it's always a "oh, yay!" or an "oh... " If you feel like tipping the scales towards the yays, the all-local, all the time Union Rose is offering 10% off its knits, including scarves, sweaters, hats, mitts, and collars, today through Saturday.
