Tip of the Month
Here we are in February already. I've been seeing signs of spring on my daily walk, the pine trees are dropping their seeds and cones and the birds are starting to sing for their mates and pair off...wonderful!
Time to start summer knitting!

P.S., Linda is enjoying the sun in Arizona.

Fiber Trip to Iceland  "...After 7 years and lots of folks asking if there would be another trip to Iceland, Barb and I are organizing a 4-day, 3-night trip for October 1-5, 2011.  I'm attaching a brochure for you and any of your clients and friends who may enjoy this most unique and interesting country.  Included in the $1,145 price is the three nights at the Fron Hotel, the Golden Circle tour and the trip to the Blue Lagoon.  I'm hoping to get our group tickets by March 10th, but if there is someone who needs a week or so extra to decide or make the initial payment, please let me know and we can accommodate them...Of course, we plan to visit the yarn factory again and perhaps even have the opportunity to meet and knit with some of the locals.  It really should be another fun trip to Iceland.  Let me know if you have questions or if you would like me to come over your way and talk to an interested group about this year's trip"...Pam Trask
I just received this email from Pam today...If you are interested I will forward the email which contains more information and a copy of the explanatory brochure. I went on the first trip and it was fabulous ...Liz
Tip of the Month
Keep your hands well moisturized. Yarn is also a drying agent just like the weather.
