Just in- Handbags for Healing! These are one of a kind, handmade purses, novelty, and knitting bags! They are made from recycled materials and a portion of each sale goes to local charities. Looking at these bags, one would think they must come from Chicago or New York, but NO, they are made in our very own Tipton, In.




As you can see, Elaine has already grabbed 2!! You have got to see these bags! They are truly fab! We will have a small trunk show of these bags during the upcoming In-Store Retreat.

Speaking of the In-Store Retreat- it is just a few weeks away. The dates are October 12-14. Hours are friday 12-10pm, saturday 10am-10pm, and sunday 10 am-4pm. Cost is $25 for the weekend. We need to know if you are coming so we can get the packet of Patterns and Shop Bag together.
Call the shop- 317-638-1833 to sign up. Let us know if you want to take advantage of the wonderful Lasagna dinner we bring in on Sat. It comes from South of Chicago. Dinner includes lasagna, bread and salad for $7.50. We really need to know if you are having dinner with us.

Bus to Vogue Live Chicago is filling up! Call to reserve your seat. Cost is $50 round trip. Date is October 27, 2012. Bus will leave Keystone at the Crossing on the north side at 7am and return around 9:30-10 pm. There is shopping, classes and lots of fun to be had. Non Knitters, this is a great chance to get to the Big City in a carefree manner. Chicago Live is at the Palmer House in downtown Chicago, so you can just catch a cab and do some early Holiday shopping if you wish!

Also, just in, Knit Simple Magazine. There are some really great gift items for Everyone! Nice kid’s sweaters and hats, men’s Scarves and Socks, and Many women’s items. I personally like the
Bootie Slippers on page 29, theTassel hat on page 30, and the Fingerless gloves on page 30 and 53 (these are really easy). There are even some really cute Teacher Gift items! Get in and get your copy of the magazine, because they will go very quickly!

Have a great weekend! Susan
