now that the holiday shopping season is officially upon us, i would like to reintroduce the latte sweater as a marvelous little gift idea. i was amazed at how quickly these little beauties were snapped up at last weekends handmade market, so as i sit here, knitting some more, i thought i would remind everyone that these exist.
if you have a friend or co-worker or someone that is a regular coffee drinker who often uses take-out cups, you might consider giving them a handknit latte sweater to re-use instead of throwing away cardboard sleeves or double-cupping. i knit these with little bits of handspun and other bright, colorful yarns, and dress them up like little tea bags. see?

what a great group we have! the show was so much fun and sooo many people showed up! you can tell that i pretty much abandoned any thought of sleep the night before [too much to sew!] but it was worth it to spend time with these awesome ladies! thanks to everyone who came out and shopped! and thanks again to the awesome musicians who provided christmas music for us!

on thursday etsy did a few live team trunk shows including one for the cleveland team! they even put a team treasury on the front page to spotlight some of the people featured in the trunk show as well as other members of the team. i was working at the coffee shop but popped in to make a few comments and say hello to all between making lattes and sandwiches =)

this video makes me cry. it reminds me that there are some really thoughtful, good, honest, hard-working people out there who want a better life and deserve the opportunity to have their needs met and to live a healthy and happy life. i truly believe the Obama campaign wants that for people. i really dont think that john mccain is what this country needs. we need a uniter, not someone who divides us and has run a campaign based on smears, lies, and general misinformation.
remember to vote this tuesday if you havent already taken advantage of early voting!
