It's time to return so I won't dwell on it or cry out after a different arrangement. One needs yarn. One needs to buy Nutra for the dogs. One needs a pedicure once in a while. So many needs require a cash flow. I spent my last day of vacation quietly - partly on the porch and then making some rounds.
This is Anne Hanson's 'Oh, Canada' that I started for my mom and am now focused on finishing for her birthday. I'm making good progress -
We call this 'vanilla' knitting. I love working with neutrals, especially creamy whites. Sometimes I wish that I were of smaller statuette - I would wear only white and cream! (and look like a beluga whale!) I was gathering some things to take to work with me and I remembered buying this -
Does anyone else love Charley Harper's illustrations? This is a desk calendar that I found a few weeks ago. Inside, one image is more wonderful than the next!
This one scares me and makes me sad - the fate of the sea turtle. Maybe I'll take a vacation that week and thus avoid seeing this image!
I went to see my BFF and we worked on her yarn collection. After she closed the shop she was left with some significant yarn. In big black bags. What's a GOOD BFF to do? So we sorted and stacked and she felt better knowing that she had enough yarn in her house to make it through the Sheep & Wool Festival winter. She has the most generous heart in the universe, so I left with a huge sack of yarn too. AND she gave me some of her beautiful Sundance skirts - OMG, does it ever get any better than this? I'm not posting pictures because it's not nice to make you drool. Let me just say that they are scrumptious - silk, piped with the most amazing hemlines. Lucky me.
