This week every year we tell you how thankful we are for each and every one of you. Maybe you're sick of hearing it or maybe you think we're blowing smoke but we are truly, truly grateful for all of your support!
Without all of you, we wouldn't still be here, and every time we turn the key in that lock on the door we send a silent little thank you out into the universe. This is our week to shout it from the rooftops - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, we hope your holiday is everything you want it to be. And, if it's not, keep your stitching close at hand and know we're thinking about you.

Crafty Countdown - Week 8
Teachers are the best, aren't they?
Let's take a peek at some great teacher gift ideas this week! These are in a variety of weights, so if you see one you love click on the photo to see all the details on the design's Ravelry page.
Here are the things we were thinking when searching for gifts:
- a cup cozy to go with a coffee shop gift card
- a headband/hat to keep warm when outside for drop off, recess, and dismissal
- a bookmark to bring a smile and hold an important place
- a cute pouch to keep technology protected
(Don't limit yourself to thinking just about teachers either! Uncle Sandy or Grandma Anna might love one of these things just as much as Mr. or Ms. Jones.)
If you follow us on Instagram/Facebook, you've already seen these beauties!
Some of our favorite bag styles from Woodsy and Wild are back!
At least one of these has already been sold so, if you see one you love, snap yours up quick before it's gone too.
We've restocked on shop favorite, Rowan Big Wool!
We love this yarn for every sort of project imaginable and it's fun colors really brighten up anyone's day. The best part for this time of year is that it works up in a flash so you'll be done with that gift in no time!

Berroco Project of the Week
(Yarn and pattern links in this section will take you to Berroco's pages for the design and the yarn.)
'Tis the season for chunky sweaters...
This is "Margherita".
Never knit a bottom-up sweater before? This easy, beginner-friendly pattern is a great intro to this handy technique! The body and sleeves are knit separately, in the round, and then joined at the yoke before finishing off with raglan decreases and a spiffy wide-necked rib.
Knit in Berroco Coco, on US size 11 & 15 needles, this is the kind of project that you could potentially finish in a long weekend.
We love Coco for it's bright, variegated colors - it's why we stock it at the shop! Come take a peek at the colors in person - before you order - if you'd like.
This sweater takes anywhere from 7-13 balls depending on the size you choose. You'll also need needles, stitch markers, and stitch holders (or spare yarn) to complete this project.
There is an additional $8 shipping charge for these drop ship orders so Berroco can send them straight to your door.
Want to order one of these kits? Go to Berroco's pages for the design and yarn to check out the details and choose your size and colors (clicking on the links/pictures above will take you straight to them!). Then click here and send us an email. We'll be in touch to confirm your information and process your payment.
Is there an older Project of the Week that you're still thinking about? We can likely still get it! Check the Berroco 1-2-3 Dropship Store to figure out all the details and then use the email link above to send us a message.
We're taking a break from distractions this week to focus on time with friends and family. Stay tuned for new links next week.
