I am looking for a Christmas Stocking from the 80s that has Santa with a angora beard or coming out of the chimney. Can anyone help?

I was wondering if you carried schoppel-wolle zauberball. I am looking for color 1564 tropical fish.

I visited this shop on my way through Illinois. They have a wonderful selection of yarns, though many only have one or two colorways. I either found yarn I loved in an ugly color, or an pretty color of something that did not appeal to me :(
Knit Wits is also a bit heavy on the mohair. It made up about 2/3 of the laceweight section. Different strokes for different folks. They do have lovely sock yarn though, and a nice selection of cashmere.

The natural lighting in the front of the store is a definite improvement from many LYS I have visited. It's much easier to see "true" color in natural light!
The knitting table was also nice. Some stores set them up in heavy traffic areas, but theirs was set to the side, by the window. Very considerate for the people working on projects (good lighting saves eye strain) and for shoppers who don't want to trip over people working to get to a coveted yarn.

I have to say, though, that I felt distinctly unwelcome there. The woman working followed me around the store... just staring at the back of my head half the time (not pretending to stock or straighten). It's nice to get help when you need it, but frankly, I told her I needed to look around and she wouldn't stop buzzing. I would have spent a great deal more if my heels weren't being nipped at the whole time. My fiancee even commented on it, and asked me what her problem was. Maybe they don't like strangers there, or anyone who isn't an old lady, or is of the "wrong" ethnic group. I'd rather not jump to conclusions, but she acted like I was shop lifting even though she watched me the whole time, and my hands were always in plain sight, and never near my bag.

Maybe I will visit again to see if it was a fluke, but there are other nice yarn stores that will happily take my money.

I love Knit Wits! It has an enormous inventory of patterns, yarns, and colors from which to chose, including favorites such as Cascade 220, a huge variety of sock yarns, and some of the more unique yarns coming from "hip" fiber companies such as Trendsetters. Bonnie is always willing to lend a hand in picking out patterns, selecting colors, and overcoming challenges in project construction. I have taken several classes at the shop, and class sizes are perfect for individual attention and instruction.

I also recommend getting a therapeutic massage from Amie Jo, a certified and licensed massage therapist. Her prices are very reasonable, and she provides a quiet, calm, and relaxing atmosphere in a private area at the back of the shop. Amie Jo is the "Spa" in Knit Wits Yarn Spa!

I'm not sure what the directions mean (4 sets on each side of face,i.e. 10:00, 2:00, 4:00 and 8:00)?

Does it mean knit 10 P2tog, knit 2 P2tog, knit 4 P2tog, and knit 8 P2tog?

Thank you,

Bonnie:

I think I was successful in getting you on Ravelry.

I completed the Norwegian Sweet Baby Hat! I like it!

Sue
For most knitters, use the six for the ribbings and eight for the hat portion. Thanks for helping with the project. Our shop is currently trying to fill a need for 3000 soldiers.

For Bonnie Long:

I am just starting a helmet liner, and I have one question.

For the gauge of 4.5 stitches per inch in the stockinette stitch, what size needle am I supposed to use? The size 6 or 8?
