I have been too freaked out to blog (or knit) as of late...
I feel better now because some of the scary parts of opening shop are over. I am getting quite the education to say the least.
To celebrate, this is my first rainbow of 2009. My camera lens could not fathom the whole thing. Never gets old. A rainbow. I am six again.
Is it just me? The geese seem much bigger this year or perhaps they are hanging out closer to the house and so I see them better...? Turkeys man.
Last weekend, HD found this wooden shell shaped bowl at the public market. He thought it would be great for the shop to display yarn. I've trained him well. Merci!
I decided to put the alpaca/cashmere in it. Perfect fit.
Yesterday, I stocked my shelves with fresh summer sock yarns. Finally, a LYS that has lots of my-kind-of-sock yarn... I keep forgetting I am the reason for this. Hee!
Never have I ever wanted to be rich...but unlimited yarn money would be really nice to have now. I go to Montréal this Saturday to order my fall stock.
I adore this new-to-me baby bamboo/wool. The colour names are precious. Honeybun, coo, ming, happy... I wish I had this stuff when my wee folk were in diapers!
I set up my needle rack today. That was fun! I feel my knit shop mojo creeping back to me. I lost it when the stress was getting me down. Need to remember the inspiration behind all this. Breath. Even HD is catching the vibe. He keeps saying he wants to retire his chainsaw. Here is a secret... I would love a mate to knit with. That would confirm God got the memo!
