It’s true… we are so excited we can’t hide it! Mary and I have been busy prepping for our 1st ever Thursday night knitting party here at The Modern Mercantile. (we are still trying to come up with a name for our little group or club or circle or — any ideas?) Mary will be knitting a scrap yarn scarf with all her various stashed yarns. Last year Mary scored a major yarn stash from an older gal that was needing to clean out her shed-o-yarn! I plan on making some crochet soap tawashis for holiday gifts! At The Modern Mercantile we carry an amazing locally made soap that we can’t get enough of. When wondering what I was going to make this came to me while restocking our display — remember our obsession with tawashis?!

With the wine and cheese chilling it’s sure to be a great time!! If you are in our neck of the woods we’d love you to join us.  Since most of our readers are sadly not from our area, you have our permission to put your feet up tonight, pour yourself that favorite beverage and craft your brains out for a few hours!  Would love to see a few pics of your crafting adventures.  🙂
