July Socks
There are about 15 species of hellebores, the most common being the Lenten Rose. It was once used to “purge the veins of melancholy, and cheer the heart”. If you look it up in the meaning of Flowers, HELLEBORUS stands for 'Relieve My Anxiety'. Posted by Yarn Yenta at 4:52 PM.

socks don't knit themselves
Many thanks to the amazing staff! We have a new scary food allergy and they helped check our order, even during a rush, to make sure everything my daughter ate was safe for her!

After a long day of sledding at Mt Lassen, we had hoped to find a decent place to eat. We were blessed to find more exceptional Chinese fare than we have had in quite some time. The Willow Beef was amazing.
