my life as a crocheter & knitter & working mom

for the first time in over three months

I ordered yarn today.

This is coming to live with me. It was dyed by Ruth over at Knitting on Impulse. (I hope she doesn't mind that I borrowed her picture.) To make it up to her, I'll say that you must, must go buy something from her. She's got yarn, notecards of her fabulous nature photos, and jewelry and handknit items at her shop. I love her stuff and would love to go to Whistler to support her at one of the events at which she participates.

She's got an amazing eye for color and is so creative with a variety of media. I really want to buy some of her jewelry some day. If you don't read her, you should!

In other news, I'm taking a slight detour with BSJ #5. I don't think I have enough yarn to complete it, so I'm going to try to stockinette stitch it. Instructions can be found here. I'll report back on Monday.

I'm so looking forward to this three day weekend. My office is closing at three, so I get a head start! Tomorrow, we're going to the park in the morning and then to our favorite fish and chips place for dinner. (M-i-L's parents are visiting from SC and Great Grammy loves to go back to Kearny for fish and chips.) Sunday we're going to M-i-L's cousin's annual bbq and picnic. Monday, we're hoping to try out our pool passes for the first time. Since they're forecasting 80 and sunny, I think we'll be good to go! The weather's looking to be a treat for the whole weekend.
A safe and fun Memorial Day Weekend to all my American friends (and a good weekend even if you aren't in the US)!

Thanks for all the kind words! (blushing). I'm truly honored I was the one to break your yarn fast!
