Greetings from my favorite chair on a rainy Tuesday here in Maryland. We just finished dinner and everyone has scattered to do whatever it is that they do. The house is quiet and I thought I would pop in and do some writing.
I really thought that I was on an upswing from the whole MDSW tiredness but to be honest I’ve been sleeping late in the mornings, like really late, like breakfast at lunch time. Last night I made myself go to bed by 11:00 and that was good. I still got up later than I wanted but it was 8:30 and not 10:30. I had another massage today and I physically feel lots better. My back, shoulders and neck were pretty jacked up. I guess dying 800+ skeins in 6 weeks might do that to you. Plus since the beginning of the year I was busy fulfilling wholesale orders so I really haven’t had much of a break. I have one more fun obligation in Pennsylvania at the end of June and then it’s some serious R&R for this gal.
Yankee Dyer Yarns will be having a trunk show at Yarnings in Skippack, PA on June 24 and 25. Gayle, the shop owner and I met at MDSW and we were able to plan something fun for her customers. We can’t wait to see you there.
Last week I had a short burst of energy and wanted to cast on everything I could and almost did. I have 2 new shawls in the works and I’m cruising Amy Herzog’s site and contemplating a sweater. Which makes me feel so guilty because I have a custom fit sweater upstairs, all blocked and put together and it’s only missing ONE button band and the buttons. Maybe that’s something I could do tonight? I would love to wear it to knit night tomorrow. Until I finish that I can’t be looking a more sweater patterns…….said the moth to the flame.
What’s on the needles you ask? I started Summer Camp by Laura Aylor and then I fell down the rabbit hole with Fairyhill shawl by Helen Stewart because it has BEADS! I actually have a bead stash and I partially blame Laura Nelkin for that…LOL! Pictures next time as it’s almost dusk and I need to go upstairs and get that sweater. While I’m up there I think a soak in the tub sounds great. I really do just feel like a slug.
That’s what’s going on here. What’s going on with you?
Till next time ~ Michele
