to say thank you doesn't ever feel enough. for all the kindness shown on my last post, my daughter's wedding.
but thank you, as always, from the bottom of my heart xxx
this is a very disorganized post about organization and attempting to catch up
(i guess it must be said everything i've shared in this post was because i wanted to, no compensation was
made or monies given. feeling uncomfortable to write this but i had an email that said i wrote
for other motives, made me sad) so i'm making sure to say if that were to happen
i would let you know...
i've been working on reorganizing my crafting room
most of my wool, is happily nestled in it's new cupboard!
my room has so many things i love
tiny doll furniture
new wool that hasn't been added to the cupboard yet
(there is new noro too, our lys had a sale, over seventy percent off!)
which was made into noro mitts
75 yard pattern here
new cuff bracelets
the cuff on the left was made for sadie to wear in the wedding, but in the excitement
it was left behind in the cabin. this is the pioneer cuff pattern, purchased as a kit
(from the yarn over truck, see below)
a knitted square made for a comfort blanket, requested by sweet andi
pattern here tulip square
oh my goodness, do you see this yarn? it's from kettle yarn co.
a new shop in london. this is exquisite, the color, the baby camel silk blend...
this is why i work extra hours at my job.
truly like a little yarn baby, i just want to sit with and cuddle, it's divine
i'm sorry dear friends for putting temptation in your way.
a new yarn bowl! made and gifted to me by an incredibly talented friend, i think she needs to
make these, and share them with the world, it's so very useful and makes
knitting even more pleasurable.
LOVE! thank you karen!
the yarnover truck came to town!
the yarnover truck is a new business began in southern california, it is brilliant!
the truck is filled to the brim with all things knit... wool, needles, bags and patterns...
"Yarnover Truck is your local yarn store on wheels, implementing the food truck business model and applying it to a mobile yarn store. The truck will make appearances at a variety of local events, including street fairs, craft fairs, art and music festivals, food truck events, and Farmer’s Markets throughout Southern California. Additionally, the Yarnover Truck will be hosting its own events and available for private parties. Our goal is not only to sell yarn, but to increase awareness and provide needlearts education, with a focus on knitting and crocheting."

thank you lovely ones for such a fantastic idea, best of luck to you!
(i forgot to share what i brought home from the truck)
this post didn't make it in time for the weekly yarn along, but i wanted to share what i'm reading.
'fried green tomatoes at the whistle stop cafe', because i met fannie flagg last week at my work. she was utterly delightful, i see why this book + movie was so popular, she is a gem, a southern charm.
i think that does it, i'm almost all caught up.
oh one last thing!
happy birthday son!
he celebrated in hawaii this week (he lives in japan)
this photo was taken of him and i a few years ago (over ten now!) while he was living in
hawaii and attending university of hawaii. wish i were there honey, to bake your cake,
