Manic-In Monday

Today is certainly a bit manic here in the shop. We were busy on Friday and Saturday, and then had LOTS of orders to download and fill today... it was definitely a big cyber-weekend here... Here's just a small portion of the leaning tower of packages! But it's good to be running around so much, especially since we all ate just a BIT too much during the last 4-5 days. We were commenting this morning on how our jeans are feeling a bit snug today. I guess that's from too much pie, stuffing and all the rest of it.

Our mannequin had a great holiday, and like us, she's feeling like she ate a bit too much. When choosing the outfit for this week, she went for a full trompe l'oeil... and chose something that makes her look slimmer. (Don't you watch What Not to Wear, anyone? This isn't new here! Smoke & mirrors, smoke & mirrors!) The lines on this vest are super flattering, and the funky pom-pom scarf will sure get a lot of attention.
Vest: Americano Vest in the Berroco Book #302 Vintage & Vintage Chunky knit with Vintage Chunky Yarn.
Scarf: Stash Busting Pom Pom Scarf made with Clover Pom Pom Makers (all sizes) and stash yarn. No knitting required! Just a crochet chain (which you could also finger knit...) Those pom poms are addicting, aren't they? Remember, we have instructional videos on how to use the pom pom makers!
