Thank You Needles'n Pins Yarn Shoppe

Today's Saturday post is a huge thank you to Gordon at Needles'n Pins Yarn in Delavan, Wisconsin.  


Do you know where this is going?

Al and I were busy as country bees inside the knit shop last week. 

Fireman was patiently petting the spaniel outside. 

Needles'n Pins has a huge selection of yarn in a warm inviting environment.  No need for shame, you'd feel comfortable bringing in your garter blanket for them to pick up the stitches
without a raised eyebrow. 

Doreen has apparently written several books on knitting. 

When AL and I left the shoppe, I wont' mention time transpired,
Fireman and Gordon were chatting it up. 

Gordon hadnt' met us before so he politely asked the questions. 
Once he heard Al was a nurse he was telling us his rather miraculous country 911 rescue. 

I had this notion that I wanted Fireman to make me a simple headboard for the new house bed. 
I asked Gordon, if he knew any farmers who sold barnwood.

By golly, Gordon had an entire barn of the wood. 
He told us to take our pick. (of cherry and white oak) 
TAKE,  is the operative word. 

Not just random wood thrown about, his
cherry and white oak wood was carefully stacked between palates to dry to perfection. 

Fireman was enchanted. 

We left with yarn and 4 lovely pieces of wood.
All Gordon asked was that we spread the word about their yarn shoppe. 

I have a new headboard. 
It is almost finished.  I'll show you it finished soon. 

Is there a yarn you are hankering for?
I'll be happy to take orders.
I'll go to the shoppe, and I'll pay your shipping. 
Or just order from Doreen and tell her I sent you. 

I'll be buying her books and having a contest/raffle soon. 

Happy Saturday! 
Happy Needles n Pins
