My word, I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to be back. Even the trauma of adjusting to a new laptop, and a new operating system (Windows Vista, we are not going to be friends), is minimised by the joy of being back online at home. What a lonely week it was without you all!
Mind you, we’ve been busy. Preparing for today’s shop update, dyeing the new yarn to be debuted on Sunday, dyeing Sock & Lace Club, finishing off two wholesale orders. It’s been all go. And every spare moment that Mr P gets, he is spending on his pet project – a new workshop area for the business. At the moment it is just three tumble-down stone sheds behind our house, but he has vision. And it will be grand when it’s done. When? I’m thinking around 2009.
Other news – I finished the Forest Canopy Shawl! More on that later in the week. Also, lots to tell you about the generosity of knitters, which I’ve experienced in abundance this week.
So! Much! To! Tell! You!
But for now, let’s look at some peeks of today’s yarn update. I noticed a distinct theme while I was labelling the yarn this week. I don’t know if it’s because of the Fir Cone Shawl knitalong that we’re starting on Friday, or if it’s because the countryside around us is so startlingly verdant at the moment, but just look at all these greens:
I love green, so restful, so flattering. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of other colours, something for everyone! Happy browsing, my loves, and I will see you tonight at 6pm.
