It’s April 8th and the weather forecast is snow. 6-8 inches of snow. This is not good for so many reasons.
Everyone I know is very ready for spring.
I am truly sorry that I have not blogged in a long while. Did I tell you that I am working at a yarn store? I do have fulltime employment. I am working at the yarn store for fun. Oh, yeah, and the yarn. Here’s a sample:
And more yarn.
Of course, I’m buying
[bought] a variety of these luscious gems. I get the awesome opportunity of getting first dibs on so many lovely, luscious, fabulous yarns. My yarn stash has grown exponentially since my employment at the yarn store.
I am so busy. I need time to knit. I had a panic moment the other day while in my
sewing knitting room. I am thinking that I may not have enough time days to knit everything that I want to knit.
And more yarn is arriving in the mail! I almost forgot I had ordered the yarn. But, not really. I did forget what I was planning to knit with the new yarn, oh well, I’ll find something. At last count I had 10,416 patterns saved in my library on Ravelry. So, I have a few options.
I want to share some potential knitting projects. I mean, these are not “potential”, more “probably”, it’s the “when” that is in question.
I am so excited about this sweater. Besides being a super cute pattern, the yarn is Brooklyn Tweed! This is a wonderful yarn that was only available online until recently when The Yarnery in St Paul became a special distributor. [And I live close to this LYS].
And look at this pile of delicious colors of Madelinetosh! I’m planning on a very cool shrug with a design down the back and a few shawls. The shawls will be soft and squishy fun to wrap around my neck.
So much yarn, many projects, all I need is time,a cozy chair, and no distractions.
A girl can dream, can’t she?
