Recession Collection - PART 2
StaycationWhile giving up globetrotting may be painful for some, most knitters are champion nesters. This year the idea of a staycation has garnered many proponents—it was a runner-up in this year's New Oxford American Dictionary Word of the Year contest!

As a winter chill sets in here in the Northeast, I thought it might be fun to plan a little knitting staycation. With movies and sustenance at the ready, Margery designed Gelsomina, a dramatic felted chapeau crocheted in a design team favorite, Ultra®Alpaca. Norah chose Cuzco™ for Rory, a whimsical nubbly scarf. Head to the blog to see how the design team settles in for a luxurious but thrifty weekend-long staycation.
