Zen and the Art of Stash Enhancement

The weather lately as been pretty typical for this area in August, heat (in the 90s), humidity( pushing the index over 100) and haze (added to swamp smoke).

But yesterday, we had a break temps in the 80s a nice breeze, the smoke was being blown in a different direction and made for an all around pleasant day so..... I went yarn shopping! I mean what else does one do on such a gorgeous day?

Okay yarn shopping isn't all I did, but it was a very yummy part of it. We drove up to Knitting Sisters where I indulged in some Malabrigo:

Malabrigo in Nostalgia colorway

And while I was there I noticed that the Sisters have started carrying Namaste bags and accessories, so I added the mini messenger bag to my collection:

We also went over to Riverwalk Landing in Yorktown and enjoyed the breeze off the river.

Something Knitty Going On

Well I haven't done as posting lately as I would like, but good reasons:

  1. I have a new kitten.
  2. It is very hard to type with said kitten chasing the cursor across the screen
  3. I have been knitting, a shawl, a sock, and baby gifts
Here's the proof.....
Baby all natural gift set
New fun with scrap yarn books
Bellatrix LaStrange socks
Summer Shawl

Progress made and not made.

So I have this wonderful shawl I'm doing as a knit a long and haven't touched it in a week, but that is okay. Because I am knitting a super soft natural colored cotton washcloth and towel for a special wee one. I have ordered some lovely handmade soap from August Soap House, Carolyn is a wonderfully charming lady who makes the most deliciously smelling soaps. Pictures will coming soon ans Mr. Sheep Shack tries out his new digital camera.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

Happy Knitting!
