I’m sitting on my couch with a box of kleenex, a cup of coffee, a warm fire, my knitting and a laptop. We’re still loading information into our website applestooranges.net, and not even half way there! It could be slow and tedious, something like this sweater I’m knitting using Classy worsted from Dream in Color (one of my favorite yarns!), except that I knit a row, enter a photo, knit a row…etc. I wonder if I’ll ever get either task finished? Now, about that cold: my friend Lynn gave me a homemade toddy to put in my tea, and I’m recharging my batteries. I wish everyone who reads this blog has a healthy and happy autumn and a good knitting project!
Laurie Armstrong Carter is the owner of Apples to Oranges. There are several reasons for the name of the shop: a play on Alpha to Omega, a reference to Laurie's love of fruit! the process where yarn is changed from one form to another, the fact that our shop is not just a yarn shop: we also sell Department 56 villages, Sunsout puzzles, locally made ceramic knitting bowls, and candles flavored with local wine scents; and lastly, comparing our shop to others is like comparing apples to oranges!
