Good News, Bad News

Good News: Cashmere feels wonderful.  Have you noticed that? I have to pick up the CashSport by The YoYo every time I walk by those shelves. (This is the only yarn base we have in Sportweight with cashmere in it and I am going to be making a pair of socks for myself out of it.  Quick knit and wonderful on your feet.)
Bad News: My “To Knit” list didn’t go down very far last weekend, like I had hoped.  Not very far at all. I can’t even explain that.

Good News: More cashmere arrived today in the form of a new line from The Sanguine Gryphon, called “Bugga!”. 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon. I took this skein right out of the top of the box for myself. I think I’ve already admitted to a certain addiction to Gryphon’s colors. The Bugga line will go up next week. (In keeping with the bug theme, this one is called “Oak Timberworm”. I have no desire to see what an Oak Timberworm looks like in real life. I’m going to pretend it’s called “Oak Timber” and leave it at that. I don’t like bugs.)
Bad News: Another thing to add to my “To Knit” list. But I’m just going to deal with that.

Good News: Cashmere Roving arrived today, too. A new blend from Tempted, this is made up of 80% superwash merino and 20% cashmere. (It will go up next week, too.)  Also addictively soft.  Also coming home with me.
Bad News: Also addictively soft. Also coming home with me. (Can I help it that that is good AND bad news?)

Good News: Tomorrow is Thursday and College Girl is coming home for Fall Break weekend.  We’re so looking forward to having her home for a few days.
Bad News: College Guy is off on a tour of Canada and the East Coast with four friends. I can’t believe all that they are packing in to this Road Trip. (Note – He considers this Good News. Only his parents consider it Bad News, since we don’t get to see him this weekend.)

Good News: Gracie and Zoe are just happy that someone else will be in the house for the weekend. They miss “their” kids, too.
Bad News: They’ll pout when she goes back to school on Sunday.

Good News: The time is drawing near for Loopy Kisses to go back into Loopy Groupie orders. (See the bowl in the photos? That stays filled year-round here at Loopy Central. Shoppers and Elves are partial to them.)

Bad News: But we can’t add them in to orders yet. It’s still in the 80′s here today, and very humid. :-( Blah.

(P.S. All of the Schaefer “Sock the Vote” invoices have gone out. If you pre-ordered skeins of this yarn, please visit your Loopy account page!)
