The Yarn Man Cometh

Yesterday I came home to 2 boxes, each bearing gigantic cones of SWTC yarn for the next 2 projects I'm doing for them. One was pink Love (one of the new Vickie Howell yarns) and the other 2 Inspiration (alpaca/soy) in some coordinating tealy-blue colors (I took a picture but Blogger is giving me a hard time at the moment).

Since I only have a few more days until school is out (and about a million things to do in the meantime- I have to go to rehearsals or performances on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, work all of those days, and finish 2 big heaps of paperwork), I decided to start on these on Friday.

I'm trying not to think about the gift knitting that remains unfinished.

Or the rising squalor levels around the house.

Guess I'd better get busy.

I can't wait to see the new yarns from Vicki Howell. They sound great

If you want to see squalor, come check out the Larj pad. The only thing that got cleaned this weekend was the dog. Oh's a four day week for me and I hope that I can get a few things done before the holiday. Just a few more prezzies to buy. Enjoy your time away from school!

Have a wonderful holiday! I am feeling that (kids are all out of school and fighting pain).
