The multi-talented Amy DiMisa came across some adorable knitting-sheep fabric, and decided that it needed to be turned into a couple of even more adorable tote bags, and so she made them. With all kinds of special details, as you can see above, and beautiful workmanship that you'll have to see in person to appreciate. And what did Amy DO with these fab bags after she finished them, you ask? She brought them to the La Plata shop as gifts for me and Ellen. How amazing is that?
And while we're on the subject of wonderful customers, please let me acknowledge the incredible outpouring of sympathy and support that has come to me after the passing of my beloved dog Samantha. Lovely cards, thoughtful phone calls, kind and eloquent emails. One of our newest knitters even made a special trip to the shop last Saturday, because she was worried that I might be sitting at the table alone, missing my sweet pup. In fact, I had a shop full of dear knitting pals, all there to buoy my spirits and make sure I knew that they missed Samantha too.
Everybody who works for Crazy for Ewe knows that we have tremendously talented and generous customers. It's not news. But I'm especially aware just now of the special gifts you all bring to us.
