This week we received a restock of Cherub DK.
This yarn makes darling baby items.
Lots of colors and it feels so soft!        

Jenn discovered this wonderful product for us. It's called the
Needle Nook.
The Needle Nook stores double point needles and your project while you're working
on it. It comes in 6" and 8" lengths.
