So when was someone going to tell me that Easter was this Sunday? If there is one thing I'm really terrible at, it's checking the calendar. OH *%$#!!! Well, apparently, I'm cooking for the whole family. I learned about this when visiting Long Island this week, my grandmother said over a cup of tea, "you're having Easter right? Just make sure you pick up a few bananas for me and a box rice" (oh- you can only imagine). I can laugh now thinking about that because that was actually really funny, but food shop? That means I'm going to have to put the needles down for a minute. It also means someone sweet needs a little cotton jumper to wear for the Easter Bunny. I started the Girl's Sun dress from Blue Sky. Obviously, a long sleeve underneath, but this is perfect to knock around in at our house (ahhhh! eeeek oohhhhh!!!) No it's okay, really, I love having it at our house. It's really the preparation that is a bit overwhelming. Anyway, on to other things...
This week, more beautiful, amazing, and fabulous yarn came in!! I received a small portion of my Smooshy sock order from Dream in Color. So soft and a trillion yards on a skein.
Pretty huh? I think so. However, nothing really beats opening a box from Patti Subik. The colors are unbelievable, I know there are some really great dyers out there, but she is truly talented- stay tuned for her trunk show coming up this April at the shop. When I get a box of Peru, a delicious cotton that is a dream to work with, I know there are going to be some really happy knitters in my shop. These colors scream spring!!
I think I'm going to have to knit, or maybe crochet, a market bag out of the Blue Sky skinny cotton. I'm really excited to start working with this, the colors are rich and decadent!! So much yarn, where do I start!! Actually, I think this cotton would work up lovely in the Rickenbacker scarf from Through the Loops!!
It's 11pm, I have to get some knitting done if I want Scarlett to where this dress for Easter '08 and not '09!! :)
