christmas knitting

a very quick post hope you all had a wonderful Christmas , it goes by so quickly.
just wanted to show you a photo of my two girls and some of my Christmas knitting, I think they like what I made, they also have on fingerless gloves which you can't see in the photo. They have both told me they have already used the hats!
The other shot is of my Mom , she is wearing her new vest and also 2 other scarves that belonged to other people, not sure why she had them on but it was a really good shot of her.
take care and Happy New Year

Seasons Greeting and Holiday Hours

Happy Holidays Everyone!

As 2010 comes quickly to a close, I just want to take a moment to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and to send my best wishes for a safe and wonderful 2011.

2010 was a very special year here at The Purple Sock...I celebrated my third year in business in May, added more lines of wonderful yarns to the shop, had some terrific classes, and oh, we hosted our 1st Pyjama Party!, and we published the Purple Sock Cookbook, which will benefit several womens' charities in our area.

So all in all, 2010 was a fabulous year, and I send you all my sincere thanks, and appreciation, for without all of you and your continued support of my shop, there would be no Purple Sock.

And so, in order to have a wee rest ( and to do the year-end inventory), I will be closing on December 24th at 4.00pm and reopening on January 5th. but I hope to see you all in the New Year, ready to start new projects!

Happy Knitting to you all!

Frill seeker and great hats!!

The photo is of one of my customers and her husband who stopped in last Saturday evening when Coldwater had its Candlelight walk and Santa Claus parade. They looked so cute I had to share the photo I took of them with you. Not sure where she got the pattern but they were great.

I have now received an order of the new frill seeker colours. they are the top three on the link below. #Q50211, Q50212, and Q50213 I am afraid the other colours(older ones) will not be in now before January, so if you were counting on them for Christmas knitting you will need to get something else or one of the new colours. If you want any of the new colours please e-mail or phone me and I will put them on hold for you, as I am sure they will go fast.
If anyone can tell me how to make a link on my blog I would be greatful as I can't seem to figure it out.

Also you might like to check out this blog it has some great shots of my store. Tahnya and her husband came to shop a couple of weeks ago and she quite enjoys taking photos with her new camera and took some great shots of my store. So please take a look. Sorry you will have to copy and paste the link.
thanks Lynn

The Purple Sock Cookbook

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Well, the "Purple Sock" is happy as we have had a delivery of an early Christmas present! The "Purple Sock Cookbook" is here and it is beautiful!

A special thanks to all of YOU who sent in your favourite, treasured recipes...that is what really made the cookbook wonderfully special. That also makes it a perfect gift or stocking stuffer for those people on your list who love to eat, cook, bake, entertain, read cookbooks and share, so that just about covers everyone I think!

Stop by soon to get your cookbook(s)..they are going fast! At just $10.00 each and with ALL the profits going to local charites, we are thrilled to be a part of the Holiday Season here in Coldwater, and don't forget the Candlelight Walk on Saturday, December 4th. See you there!!

Happy Knitting!
