Oh my goodness time flies when you are having fun. We are well into our summer schedule at the store. Every time I think I get a handle on my schedule and juggling act it falls apart. That’s life though right? Please tell me life is that way for you too.
I keep adding new products when I get a chance. Over the summer I added shawl pins and other fasteners from Jul. She has some great new Celtic designs and they are all fair trade or made in the USA. Now, it makes me want to knit more shawls. I’ve really only got one shawlette. Hmmm… I will have to fix that.
I just got done working with the Manos del Uruaguay Serena yarn and made a hat from one of their patterns. Oh. My. Goodness. I love this yarn and I’m not normally a fan of the smaller yarns. This is a fingering weight cotton and baby alpaca blend. I love working with this yarn! I seldom wear a hat when it is cold let alone 100 degrees. I’m hoping this one being a little on the lighter side will let me wear it now that it is Fall.
Speaking of… Fall that is. It is here. My favorite season of all! Cool nights and warmer days. Hats and sweaters and wood fires. Pumpkin spice shows up everywhere and the colors turn to golds and browns. It is Mother Nature telling us to turn inward and hunker in for winter. I feel the pressure to get the firewood stacked and the tomatoes canned.
With Fall also means the transition into the holiday season. I’m busy planning spinning classes, a beginning knitting class, and working on getting some fabulous holiday yarns in. Now that the hurricanes down south have cleared some I am finally starting to get some new baskets in. I should have a new batch in the store this week, with another right behind that one. Hurricane Harvey delayed my shipment for almost a month. I sure am glad I didn’t have to go through that weather.
I’m off and running with more plans! Hopefully I’ll see you in the store soon. It is nice and cozy!
