Keep someone's hands warm this winter

Hello Everybody :) I hope you are all well, and happy, and warm, and knitting, or crocheting, or whatever else makes you feel content, and peaceful, and creative :) :) :)
Some of you may have received the email from Sarah about her mitten knit a long, but I wanted to add it to the website as well.
Sarah is hosting a knitalong every Thursday from 4-6pm at Happyknits.  This is FREE for all, but please be fairly comfortable with double pointed needles to join along.  She is available for help but will also need to be available for other customers at this time. She has designed and written a pattern which is also free and available at the store.  The idea for this came from the charity knitting we decided to do this holiday season and even on after the holidays.  We will be collecting donations of mittens, all sizes, and dispersing them amongst local schools, doctor’s offices, and at Spectrum Generations (a program for elderly).  If you would like to participate in this, please talk to us about receiving a 10% discount on your yarn for this project.  Ideally we would like to see you at the knitalong in order to receive the discount, but if the timing doesn’t work for you and you still want to knit mittens for donation, let us know.  We trust your honesty and trust that we will see you again with some beautiful handmade mittens to add to our “Mitten Tree”.
Of course you are more than welcome to knit with whatever yarn you choose from your stash as well.  You do not have to purchase yarn at Happyknits to participate in the knitalong. We would love to have you :)
I hope you, yourselves are all looking forward to the upcoming season….it is knitting/crocheting season after all :) And please, know that you are welcome and encouraged to come sit by our fire at any time during store hours and relax and work on any project you have going.  We love visitors!! Thank you so much for reading and following us here and on our other social media sites, and for being loyal, supportive, and straight up fantastic people.  Bring on the snow, eh? ;)
