How does a shop owner make time to knit?

She gets sick! Or more precisely, she catches a contagious disease which absolutely prevents her - in the interest of the public good - from entering her shop. So, I have the flu to thank for my Hemlock Ring blanket! This is Jared Flood's knitted doily writ large (knit large?). I love it. I didn't have a cat-free zone large enough to block it, so up it went on the sun room wall. It has turned in to a great conversation piece, so there it stays! If you're interested in a challenging, but do-able beginning lace project this is a great one.
