Love Your Sleepwear Even More

Compression sleepwear is known to improve circulation, and can even help your muscles repair faster. They are usually priced fairly high, due to the material and construction. You do get what you pay for when buying this type of garment, so choose wisely.

The form fitting pieces can be worn under clothing too, or as nice layers under blouses, jackets, and skirts.

I discovered this modern suit while reading Shape Magazine, the August 2010 issue (page131). I knew I had to share it with you because of the interesting fiber content and because it is a great addition to your wardrobe. "AMP PRO2 improves oxygenated blood flow up to 32% more, versus regular compression fabrics." This means faster recovery time for your tired and aching muscles after that hard workout. You can wear this incredible design to sleep or on your daily run. Another great aspect is the fact that the suit will work as long as the life of it because washing does not effect its performance.

Special Olympics Georgia 40th Anniversary Celebration

"Special Olympics Georgia is looking for volunteers to knit or crochet scarves for our 40th Anniversary Celebration during State Indoor Winter Games to be held Jan. 21-23, 2011. The pattern is up to you and the size we would like is 6" by 4-5", red or red/white. Our goal is to be able to provide each of the 1,400 Athletes with a scarf during Opening Ceremonies for them to then wear throughout the weekend."

The organization is looking to receive the majority by Dec. 17 so they will know how many to expect. The scarves must reach the Atlanta location by January 14th, the latest deadline.  Also there are places they can be dropped off: Needle Nook on Briarcliff, Whole Nine Yarns in Woodstock and The CafĂ© at Barnes Noble in Forum in Norcross (ask for Michelle). In addition, they can be mailed to the address below.
