Generating more stitches

Julia rightfully warns of carbon monoxide poisoning. If you go here, you’ll see why I’m so glad she brought it up.  Yesterday, a little too personally aware of the subject, we had the sliding door open just enough for the cord to pass through and kept the generator as far from the house as we could manage.  We have definitely had a CO alarm since that day 24 years ago.  I’m glad for that warning to be out there for others before, rather than after; thank you, Julia, for that.

On a more fun subject. More stitches and more rows than last week’s shawl, another five-day project, I did it! A ball-anced life, definitely.

I got home from Purlescence and Michelle asked me, “So how was your cult night?”

I explained to her that they’d just gotten a long-delayed shipment in of some of my most-favorite yarns in my most-favorite colors. And I hadn’t bought a single skein. (I didn’t add, “yet.”)

She looked at me with big eyes, and asked, “How did you DO that?”

“Stitches is next week.”

She guffawed. Busted in advance.

I, too, went through the carbon monoxide trip. Not fun. But gratitude, of course, that it was not worse.

Beautiful lace, and enjoy Stitches. Have you planned your attack – er, day – yet?

I can almost smell lavender coming through the monitor. Lovely!

I am thankful you had the information about the carbon monoxide prevention. Please keep yourself and your family safe!

Grin. Yes, Stitches IS next week, so I am looking forward to breaking (by design) my self-imposed yarn fast. Oh, and looking forward to seeing all my friends, of course!

Isn’t it fun to resist, so we can splurge at Stitches?!?! I suppose I should make a list….see you soon.

Is that yarn periwinkle blue?? I love it!

I am so excited for you and glad you are going to Stitches. If you see Lisa Souza and her husband there, would you please say hi from me?
