How did 2 weeks go by?! I tell you what. Every week I learn a new lesson about budgeting time. The first week of October was miserable. Second week has gone a lot smoother. What I've learned: lower my expectations, set limits on what I attempt to get done at the studio, follow my time line as much as possible not others. I won't elaborate but we're all learning here. Let's do a little family update. o is 4 1/2 months old. Two weeks ago he weighed 19 pounds at his check up. He could very well weigh 20 now. There is nothing small about that baby! He wants to play all the time and isn't too keen on being put down so I can get work done. He could also be teething, because two teeth isn't enough! e just got a hair cut tonight and is looking sharp. He continues to try my patience every day, which is his job. He loves to read and reads to his brother. He's also busy teaching o how to play with toys. o already likes to drive cars just like e. Pretty cute! E is still doing well. He is coming off the prednisone so we're all learning the boundaries of his healthy tummy. While the diseased part was taken out he still has Crohn's disease. It's hard to remember that after the last 6 weeks of him feeling so good and eating everything. In some ways a tummy ache feels devastating. I can't imagine the family going back to having a sick papa. But here is to continued healing and health!
Here's a little Knitted Wit update! I finished up a bunch of orders, look for new pretties at Twisted, Urban Fiber Arts, Wool N Wares, and Make 1 Yarns. They all have different and beautiful yarns (if I do say so myself!) On Thursday I had a free day to play in dye and I made up all oranges and a yellow or two with a green. I made a bunch of pretty yarns and a few fibers. They'll be hanging up tomorrow and hopefully photographed on Monday. Speaking of Monday...I'm hoping to photograph a bunch of yarn on Monday and then do a shop update. Now I know I've said this before, but I'm going to follow through. We have medical bills, enough said!
As a reward for reading this far how about a contest? A few weeks ago I managed to felt almost 10 pounds of fiber, including some silk/merino. I can't tell you how bummed I am, for more than one reason! So, if you can think of something for me to do with this roving, and I use your idea you win....some felted wool! Just kidding, how about some yarn! I have a few skeins from my 50G club that need homes. All you lurkers out there, give me an idea for the felted wool. Even if it's crazy! I'll be back Monday night with a winner and a shop update!
We went and visited Debby at her farm and e had a great time herding the goats!
Some where on this rack is October's yarn for the 50G club. If you haven't joined, there is still time! You'll get September's too!
