As you can see from this 2012 photo, we filled my mother’s seventy year Click for babies 2012old doll buggy with little purple baby hats for Click for Babies.  Once again, we have pulled this buggy out of storage and have a great start on providing as many hats this year as we did last year.  As you may know, this organization educates new parents of the dangers of shaking a newborn during those difficult crying stages that many babies experience.  Our crochet/knitted hats are very much a part of this organization’s presentation.  Remember hats need to be at least 50% purple and newborn size.  Help us once again to fill this buggy with hats for Click for Babies.

Don’t forget to join us for our weekly Social knitting/crocheting time.

I have been asked for the recipe for the Gingerbread Boys cookies that were served at Yarns Christmas in July party.  One batch makes approximately 55 medium sized cookies.

3 1/4 cups flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon ginger

1 cup butter, softened

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup molasses

Whisk together flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves and set aside.

In mixer, cream butter and sugar.  Add egg and molasses and beat until smooth.  Add flour mixture; do not over mix.  Separate dough into 2 balls and flatten into disks.  Wrap each tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. On floured surface with floured rolling pin, roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness.  With floured cookie cutter, cut into boys.  Place on greased cookie sheet and bake 9-11 minutes.  Decorate when cooled as desired

Remember when we all made the Mystery Socks?  Well, here are some examples of the socks now that the Great Mystery has been solved!photo

Interested in making socks? Each second Thursday of the month from 5:30-7:00 p.m., Connie Jo leads the Sock Club. Sometimes there is a discussion about a different new pattern or technique, and sometimes it is a “let’s just get together and knit socks” night. Join us if you can!


The most important “event” each week at Yarns Sold and Told is our Social Knitting/Crocheting times. Each Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon and early evening, we just enjoy sharing our love of yarn and our friendships created at Yarns Sold and Told. Everyone is always welcome whether you are new at knitting or crocheting or have been crazy about yarn for years. Stop by and join us!

So, what is more fun than a yarn shop? Well, it would have to be lots of yarn shops! Mark your calendar for the Central Kansas Yarn Hop Thursday, October 17 through Sunday, October 20 and join us for a fun filled weekend.
