After a week of camping at the fair, livestock shows, working various stands, and a very long, hot auction day, I am still feeling a bit hungover. We had a fun week but it is exhausting. The kids all did well on their projects and their shows, and had a great time hanging out with their 4-H friends. I’m still catching up on laundry and cleaning the camper out for relatives that are coming in on Saturday (I’m sure they would appreciate clean linens and such), but it’s nice to be home and getting back into the regular routine.
I have checked in so many new things since my last post…. let’s see… there is Classy (new colors), Mauch Chunky (new colors), Kaleidoscope, and Cotton 2010, both from Opal (that took a little longer than planned, but it’s finally available for purchase), and we now have some striping Soxx Appeal. I think the Freedom Hat Kit from Heritage Fiber Publications is very cool. Available in three color combinations, the pattern offers three sizes and the kit comes with enough Shepherd’s Wool to make one hat of any size. Click here to see all the new items for July.
Just in case you were afraid that I would leave you with no pretty pictures check out the box of loveliness that was waiting for me when I got back to work. These are the Diva Bundles that Lea-Ann unveiled when Lorna was here. A few lucky gals even won a bundle as a door prize. I keep taking little breaks to paw through the box. No two bundles are exactly alike; there are similar color combinations but the there is something different in each bundle. Some have sparklies, some have frillies, some have sparkly frillies. Others have a touch of ribbon yarn. If I had to use one word to describe these little beauties it would be “FUN”. Okay, I just thought of another one. “UNIQUE”. Oh! How about “YUMMY”? I’m going to sign off now because I could go on like this for hours. Those of you who know me know that I am not joking about this.
Have a great day of knitting!
