Four merchant members were kind enough to bring knitting goodies to the September meeting.

Only Ewe and Cotton Too had, amongst other things, a big pile of Kaffe Fassett yarn as well as plenty of sock yarn. This was plainly visible from across the room. (Katie & Elyse pictured.)

Needle Nook had some new books, including In the Mood by Jean Moss. The golden jacket in the foreground is a sample from this book. Cute and flattering on a variety of figures. (Arlene pictured seated.)

Main Street Yarns brought her goodies in those wonderful Ghanaian baskets. There were new colors of Hempathy, more sock yarn, and lovely needle cases. (Ruth pictured.)

And Sassafras Creations continues to recycle aluminum knitting needles in the most interesting of ways. In addition to the bangle bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, there were even ballpoint pens! If you have the knitting needle pen with your checkbook, will that encourage you to balance the checkbook? Or will it make it that much easier to spend money on yarn?

As a reminder, the second annual Atlanta Shop Hop starts this Saturday, the 13th of September. Thank you to all the shops who saved us some gas and gave us a preview of the goodies waiting to be loved.
