And you know wherever I am,
I'll come running. To see you again…
Yes, you do.
You’ve got a friend.
You can say it.
I do too.
No, it’s not you.
All you have to do is call,
And I'll be there.
You've got a friend...
I’m making a military gator or gaiter, depending on the pattern you look at, for my poor baby boy who is freezing in Utah. He wanted green and of course, there’s no green wool yarn to be found. So I ordered green yarn and it’s not here yet. Maybe tomorrow? But in the meantime I found some as well. I’ll be heavy on green wool now! For now he’s getting gray. I hope it’s what he wants. Knitayear is also still in progress. Day 230 is November 16, and I’m sick. Sick enough to call in. I just don’t feel good and haven’t for a while. Old age I guess. I chose rust, green and blue eyelash for no particular reason except I thought it was kind of ugly today and it reminded me of sick! Day 231, November 17, I’m feeling like a slacker. I really did work but it was cleaning off the desk, putting things away, that kind of stuff. I really haven’t gotten to do anything like that since I moved offices. I picked a pale green suede yarn. It seemed like a steady yarn to me. November 18, day 232, I’ve regained my ambitious attitude! I’m planning for an upcoming workshop, fixing a booboo that happened and just working on things that need to be done. The yarn I picked is alpaca from one of the WHIBSIB weekends. It’s blue, green, yellow and red. It’ busy like I was! Day 233, November 19, I’m enlightened even more, but not in a good way. I’m driving to Austin for work. I’m glad to be going. I picked yarn that is black, white and red. Day 234, November 20, and I’m working on a Saturday. But it’s a fun work environment. I’m industrious and we stay busy until after 4:00. Then I’m on my own. I explore a bit but I’m so tired I can’t even take advantage of being in Austin, which I love. I choose teal Noro. And finally, day 235, November 21. I’m feeling self indulgent, sleeping in, taking my time, getting a Starbucks. I picked a pale blue ribbon for this day.

The drive is pretty too. There are tall trees in some parts of Texas! The owner is very nice, just letting me look. I wander around and touch yarn and look at things for an hour or more.
She has a lot of beautiful things to look at and choose from. She’s also a spinner and weaver and she dyes her own yarn as well. All those things I want to do someday when I have the extra time. Ha ha…I’m not holding my breath waiting for extra time!
|I did want to thank my friend Sinéad, for the inspiration of her beautiful yarn store pictures. http://knitinc.blogspot.com/2010/11/yarn-stores-galore.html Otherwise, I might have never thought to ask!|
