Super Scarves for the Super Bowl

When you watch the Super Bowl on February 5th in Indianapolis, you might catch people wearing blue and white scarves. These were made and collected by an initiative spearheaded by the Super Bowl Host Committee to make scarves in the Indiana Colts colors (blue and white).

The Adventures of Gnorbert the Gnome – Meeting Gnora

Earlier this year we introduced you to Gnorbert the Gnome and his travels. He visited shows, the Coats & Clark Mill, took a few road trips and even a vacation. Even though he was having a wonderful time traveling around meeting all the wonderful yarn people, we was still missing something. While at one of those shows, something special happened, he met his mate Gnora. A little shy at first, he did sneak a kiss when he thought no one was looking. Gnora has agreed to join Gnorbert on his adventures in 2012. Do I see a romance in the making? Continue reading “The Adventures of Gnorbert the Gnome – Meeting Gnora”
