Drum Roll The Big News Is .......Etsy!! Yep I have my own little virtual store. After much prodding from certain family members cough Hubby cough Mom cough Aunts cough I finally did it. I ordered my yarns,dyes,roving and even some material about 2 weeks ago. Have I received it all? Nope. I did get the yarn and dyes so I have been able to start. I wanted to open today but well I do not think it is a good idea to open with 2 skeins. I am doing some today so I am hoping I will be ready the first. You know how it goes..the best laid plans...yadda yadda.
Contest winner is.........Karen G. Your prize is.....any one thing from my shop (when I have stuff in it of course)
Anyway, the kiddies and I have been off this week (meaning little time to do what I want to do) we went to Ikea to get a new couch since well the kiddies broke the other one with their cannon ball practices. My kiddies can be sneaky when they want to be. I do not remember being as sneaky as they can be so lets blame Hubby for their sneakiness. =) Love Ya Hubby =)
I also got to go to my RA dr and I was showed how to inject myself. Hold it like a dart and basically throw it into my leg like a dart!! Ha Ha. I had already picked up the needles and liquid chemo. When she told that the needles were 25 gauge needle the first thing I thought of was knitting gauge. It was surreal to see this needle just sitting in my leg. Good news is that I only felt the alcohol burn. So next Friday will be my turn. Right now I am saying I can do myself. Hopefully I will be able too. =)
My Mom and Aunt R came for a visit on Wednesday and Aunt R was a real sweetheart and watched the kiddies while I took Mom to the yarn store. Guess what people she now has a stash!! Wahahaha! Everything is going according to my plans! She bought more sock yarn and some mohair yarn to make a stole (or wrap as she says). She turned 1 heel and started gusset decreases. I also tried to get my Aunt R back into crocheting. I am still working on her (but she did leave with a pattern book) =)
Yes I did leave with some yarn. 3 balls of Cascade Fixation. It is sock yarn so it doesn't count as stash. I also have no pictures of it. Next time.
Well the kiddies are being quiet and you know what that means... they are up to something. Gotta go.
