Cleo Winner!

We are pleased to announce the winner of our Creative Knitting Cleo Giveaway! Lucky knitter, Anita J. of Pennsylvania, took the prize.  Anita’s favorite shop is Butler’s Country Knit Shop !

Marge is always helpful whenever any of her customers have knitting woes! And holds special events such as “knit in public day” at the shop. Often,her husband, Don, is minding the shop and is equally knowledgeable about the stock on hand.” Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments.  Your LYS  owners should be proud that you think so highly of them.  If you can’t find a shop in your area, check out our website and try the find a shop feature today!
