It's summer, and we've had lots of out of town knitters visit the shop. It's been wonderful to meet new knitters and welcome back those who've visited with us before. When I travel, I always visit the local yarn stores. It's fun to see what other shops have, and every knitter knows that yarn is the perfect souvenir.

Another box of treasures from our mission at TNNA arrived this week - beautiful Lolita bags from Atenti. Lolita is the newest shape from Andrea, the artist behind this line of European-inspired, US made bags. Lolita is just the right size for most projects, and features a coordinating clutch inside. You can use the clutch as a tool kit, of course, but I plan to use mine as a mini purse - all the essentials of life right with me all the time.

Hand-crafted from quality designer brocades, velvets, and ultrasuede, Atenti bags surprise and delight with exciting mixes of pattern and texture read more
