     During Winter months, please call the shop first before adventuring out, 206-2638.  Most of us live in rural areas with potentially unsafe roads during snow, icy, and extremely low temperature conditions.  If the Roanoke School systems are closed, the shop probably is also.  Stay home and enjoy an extra knitching day!
