Life Cycles

W.H.Y. was very busy celebrating life yesterday!

Emily and Shannon are having some much needed down time from launching their new store, Twisted. Wool Girl is taking a breather to wind some yarn and start a new sock!

First up, we celebrated the upcoming arrival of our friend Nicole's first baby! It was a knitterly centric party as Nicole, and many of her friends are knitters.

We had one blanket...more details in a later post...

A darling bathtime basket filled with hand knit washclothes, gentle baby soap, burp clothes, and a darling hand knit Pixie hat (Annette, you rock!).

A hand knit lace hat (and booties not caught on film) knit and designed by Courtney! Awesome work C!

And we had another baby blanket hand knit by Elza! Awesome work E!! This baby will be able to brave the cold in style in all these beautiful knit goodies, that's for sure!!!

And we had a ton of darling cute baby items, a sampling is captured here!

Best wishes Nicole!! Your little one is off to a roaring good start with all this knitted finery!

Next up, our own W.H.Y. member, Julie, had a birthday celebration at our current fibery hang out complete with a you think we're being to loud for the register person?? :)

J got some lovely scented Lavender soap....

Some awesome yarn from Spunky Eclectic....note the dude in the background, he is always hanging out with his laptop...This is 2007...your LYS is the new produce know, the place to pick up a date!

And more wonderful yarn from Miss Babs....Do you think she liked it?! (I think so!)

Not pictured was some darling knitterly stationery and a doggie tape measure! Happy B-day Julie!! Many more happy and healthy returns!!! We heart you!!

And as life cycles by their very nature are bittersweet, we want to extend our thoughts and prayers to the families and loved ones of the victims of the Virginia Tech tragedy, and to the greater community of Blacksburg, VA during this most difficult and trying time.
