This is the first weekend I’ve been home (without a Fling or anything) since early April, and it’s the last weekend I’ll be home until Father’s Day. So – it’s a Happy Weekend! There are other things making me happy, too:
My Mini Challenge summer cardi is coming along and I am having fun knitting it up. I’m using Universal’s Cotton Supreme in Aqua. Love it. And I haven’t let myself knit on anything else since I started it. I consider this true progress in my knitting maturity. I did take a look at my wardrobe this morning and was wishing that I had a short-sleeved red sweater, so that may be next on my list. (Note – if you haven’t gotten in on the Mini Challenge yet, the special discount expires tonight – Friday, May 14th. See the details here.)
The tag on this yarn is a happy one – I like the bottom: Knit, Relax, Smile, Repeat!
The construction cones and mess are still right outside my window, but no one has been here making noise for several weeks. Yay! (I did have to laugh during the Fling when one of the buses of knitters pulled down our street and someone said, “There’s Loopy! And look – there’s Sheri’s construction!” Maybe I’ve complained about it a wee bit too much?)
In Loopy news: The Loopy Line continues to arrive and we’re so looking forward to sharing it with you soon! So far, 50+ colors have arrived, but we’ll wait until all 90 are on site before putting it up. Would you like the email address of the dyer to put a little loving pressure on them? (Just kidding. Sort of.)
We do have a new yarn from Cascade to put up next week, and it has alpaca in it. You know that alpaca is my very favorite, right? Also, we hope to have the Puppy Snips back in stock next week, as you quickly cleared out the big batch we had initially!
Have a great weekend. Are you doing anything happy?
