she's so annoying when I'm on the phone or at the computer because she's learned that there 's a good chance a goodie to eat is in her future....just to get her away so I can type.....
she's a smart dog....she has a stupid owner.
Anyway,,,, at lunch yesterday I zoomed over to my very favorite yarn shop in the world (Velona's Needlecraft & Yarn) she has floor to ceiling yarn - and a small amount of needlecraft-you'd think she'd flip the name around..... but to continue I found some closely matching grey yarn that I think will work to finish the slouchy...
I'm carrying along the remainder of the original and blending in the new...doesn't that sound like I know what I'm doing and I'm an old pro at this knitting hobby??? In truth....I'm just flying by the seat of my pants and hoping for the best.
While shopping (you know I couldn't go there and not come out with something other than what I went there for) I found this......wool & mohair....Lamb's Pride
we've been planting lots of oak trees lately at work (I work in the landscape construction industry)
it's an earthly color with a bit of gold and when I saw the name - Wild Oak....sold.
this wouldn't apply if I found yarn called Marigold Meadow....we've been planting those along with pansies and snap dragons. None of which I'd wear.
Have a great day....tomorrow I'll be sporting the grey slouchy for viewing by Team Sicily where it's destined to be mailed.
Did I tell you Team Sicily (son & daughter-in-law & baby Zoe) are going to take a scenic trip to Scotland???
They leave very soon and I'm hoping and hoping and hoping that they'll tape a camera to their foreheads and posts pictures all over their blog...check it out in a couple of days...over at An American Werewolf in Sicily....her link is the picture of Leah with the black sunglasses in my followers list.
One day I'll figure out how to post a link for you to click...for now....I have to figure out what I'm going to were to work....
I was thinking yesterday that if I spent the money on clothes that I spend on yarn I'd have plenty of choices at 7:00 a.m.
|I decided on a bird|
instead of planting in the window box
it's still "in progress"
|these are the vintage little doves|
that will reside on the
roof of the little
house out back
have a great day friends...see you soon....lots of love to Sicily...we miss you like crazy.
