I have been eager to get back to the grindstone since the holiday season ended. I just get Mason back in school and what do they do? Have school for week, then take another “break” for MLK and teacher conferences. Since we spent most of the Christmas break having to work, I took some time off last week to do fun things with my little fella.
Now that he’s back in school, I spent yesterday frantically trying to catch up here at the shop because we’re having a huge birthday party on Saturday. My little guy is turning 5 on Friday. Can you believe it? I’ll be spending the rest of the week doing party things and have a zillion cookies and cakes to decorate.
Hopefully after I get this party behind me, I can get 100% back go work. It is hard to focus when with this hectic schedule!
Speaking of back to work, mom has been laid up with some sort of hip/back problem. She’s been to two ERs and they just send her home with pain killers. She has been unable to walk for weeks. She is scheduled for an MRI next Tuesday. Unfortunately I have to take Mason next Tuesday for his 5 year check up (as in getting SHOTS).
So next Tuesday will be Knit with Lori & Ann - so we might as well just call it Knit with Lori. Ann is here for moral support and fashion advice. I
will HAD BETTER BE here next Thursday so please come for help then too.
We are bracing ourselves for a blizzard of spring yarns that should be arriving very soon. In the interim, we received this new yarn from Berroco called Lacey.
It is SO EASY to make this scarf. The instructions are written for both knitting and crochet, and you barely have to know how to do either to make this scarf. One skein makes a super long scarf - it is so long you could get 2 shorter scarves out of one skein. It is only $17.95 a skein and is the simplest ruffled scarf I’ve seen yet!
While I’m off partying on Saturday Laura will be teaching the class for the Bonnie Jean Scarf. It is knit with recycled denim yarn and is really pretty! Come join us - class starts at 10.
