This is my last week of working at Granny’s Yarn Shop. And all of you out there who predicted that I would come out financially behind were right. At the end of yesterday, I owed the shop $$ …. and this is not the first time that’s happened! I need to have this job be over – my wallet can’t take it anymore!
Things have quieted down around here from all of my gadding about. Now it’s time to get some serious knitting accomplished! Although I did nothing but knit last weekend – I have nothing to show for it. ooooo wait, that’s not entirely true. Remember my fuzzy mohair shawl thing?
Well, that came off the needles! And not a moment too soon – I hated that project and am still not sure how much I like the finished result.
Back to it – the workshop was great, but after I learned the new adding on and weaving in techniques, I decided that I did not like my sampler – the colors were bleh. During a break in the action, Ricki and I escaped for an interlude at Colorful Stitches where I bought some very thin Rowan two ply. Love the colors, but it turns out the yarn is hard to work with, especially with my bandaged thumb. (did I mention that while working with Kathleen on Thursday she made me scrub the toilet and I actually got a gash on my thumb that would not stop bleeding. Seriously – this mf bled for three hours!) So now you have the story of why there are no colorful sampler pictures to show.
