tomorrow's the day!

...that I take possession of the shop. It is still woefully pink, but the property manager assures me it will be painted within a week.

Yesterday I ordered from Skacel - Addi Turbos, Zauberball yarn, Trekking XXL yarn, a killer tweed. Wait till you see the handpaints in Zauberball! To die for! And next week I meet with a rep that carries Malabrigo, Trendsetter, and other yarns. I am in sensory overload and loving it!

Today I have had a few spare hours to play with some of the techniques in "Knit One Below", using two colors of Malabrigo from my stash. I am loving this technique. Anything that creates vertical stripes of color without angst, stranding, or stiff fabric is wonderful! If you haven't read the book, get a copy (wait and buy it from me) - it has amazing patterns in it.

Till next time, knit happy and responsibly!
