Wow! The last couple months have flown right bye with a variety of activities.

The first quick announcement is that a wonderful customer pointed out a color of Cotton Fleece that was not on my online store…..CW382 Spring Sage Green. It is now listed and I think both the customer and I will be adding it to our personal stashes. I always have a vision or two of what I want to knit with this lovely cotton.

I have recently returned from a whirlwind trip with my sister and niece to Eastern Colorado….the land of my youth. Seven days (actually five once you knock out days dedicated to getting there and back) included dinner (known as supper in Eastern Colorado) with cousins the night of arrival; a dinner reunion with old classmates and friends; a family reunion of cousins (of which I have many – there were 60 or so in attendance), and my two aunts (the remaining siblings of 10 children who grew up on the homestead 13 miles northeast of town); one of our cousins brought old family photos which I always love; a trip to the old homestead; a trip to neighboring town to visit our school teacher Dorothy who is now 104, Old Town Museum and the Kit Carson County historical carouselmy youngest sister’s country wedding on July 4; and a couple nights in Limon with some favorite cousins. It was a great trip.

 

I barely knit while I was gone…..well, I probably didn’t….it was so hot and we were on the run for sure. But my needles are clicking again. I am working on the Rebozo Shawl – a design by Cheryl Oberle. More to follow about this.

img_1114I have a cute story which serves as a reminder to us all when we send knitted gifts. My 15-year old niece really loved the cowl that I sent for Christmas. After many wearings she  decided that she needed to wash it……I forgot to include washing instructions in the gift package. I bet you can guess the rest of the story. Yep, she threw it in the regular wash and it felted. She, of course, gets a new one and it will be in the mail on Monday. Her 13-yr old sister had another story to share. She loved the beanie cap that I knit her but the puppy got it….she was resourceful and turned it into a headband.

Back to the knitting needles!
