YARN

Here's an idea for gift giving or your wish list for the holidays:

Addi Clicks in regular, lace short tips and lace long tips with the "life line cords" for your lace knitting. So
easy to use the life line and redo your LITTLE errors.

More Super Traveler came in. There's plenty of time to do a hat or scarf/cowl from this quick knit yarn for
gifting. Both old favorites, Winter Woods, Candy Cane and new colors.

We received huge restocks on Uptown Worsted and Uptown Bulky, 100% acrylic for anyone who doesn't
want to work with wool. Our Jenn loves it for Baby projects!

We also restocked Cascade 220 and 220 Superwash.



We have some new models for you:

The pretty model below is called "Wing Span".
We used Zaububall Color 1993
The  pictures show how this shawl can be worn two different ways.












This version is just crossed in front.        The next version is worn to the
                                                        side using a shawl pin.


The cowl below
is called
"Chevron Tube Cowl"
This cowl used 2 skeins of Encore
Pattern is free with
purchase of yarn.

THIS WEEKS RECIPE

This weeks recipe is from our Cher, one of our owners. Once again, when entertaining, she served the
cupcakes and everyone loved them. So she offered to share the recipe with us. Thanks Cher!

BANANA NUT CUPCAKES

Ingredients:

1/3 cup butter flavored shortening
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
2 T. 2% milk
1 T. vanilla
1 -1/3 cup flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/4 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350º.  In a large bowl cream shortening and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs. Stir in
bananas, milk and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture.
Mix well. Stir in nuts. Fill 15 paper lined muffin cups 2/3 full.

Bake 18-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan.
They are good without frosting, but I like a little cream cheese frosting on them. Enjoy!
