Vacation, all I ever wanted
Nicole is back from vacation with lots to talk about including a Poconos yarn store report and how boring knitting monogamy can get.

Jenny has embarked on a project knitting caps and blankets for kids in her oncology ward. If you are interested please email for where you can send your contributions. There are a few guidelines:
- Machine washability and softness are essential. Please knit in cotton, superwash, or acrylic blends that are easy to care for.
- Kid heads are nearly as big as adult heads, so caps in the 18-22 inch range are good.
- Squares for quilts should be around 12" x 12".
For every item you send in you get an entry in a prize drawing. Prizes to be announced soon!
