"They was a-splishing and a-splashing, reelin' with the feelin'
Moving and a-grooving, rocking and a-rolling, yeah...."
This past week has been a week of
frenzied activity. Every year just about
this time, the realization of how close
Fryeburg Fair is slaps me upside the
A few days ago, I asked a very good fiber friend for some tips on dyeing roving as I have scads of it lying around the house and she graciously responded that a splish of this and a splash of that made for a ton of fun..... and she was SO right!
Over the next few weeks, I will be working on new Autumn yarn colorways and getting more roving on my webpage. This particular superwash roving will be called "Splish Splash".
I am also hoping to upgrade my www. website to a real honest to goodness shopping cart that automatically responds to orders received and keeps track of all of the financial stuff that my DH yammers at me about.. :)
It is absolutely mind boggling how much time one can waste searching things on the internet. I have looked at enough e-commerce sites in the last week to make a body dizzy!
In preparation for new and good things I will be closing down my website for the last 2 weeks of September to so that work can be done on the website and I can finish up with the new fall colors.
I have also been working on finishing up my summer projects as well. Hey Teach is almost finished and I am making progress on McKayla's bag.
The bottom of the bag is finished and I am hoping to finish up with the flower design tonight. The rest will go quickly once the flower is finished.
The only snag I have had with this bag is my gauge. I am getting the right gauge width wise, but lengthwise it is off, so going up a needle size would not have corrected the problem.
Given that this is only a bag, I am just knitting more rows than the pattern requires and hoping that it all works out.
Ok....so typepad is working on another upgrade and let me tell you that doing this post has been a challenge........Why o' why can't typepad just leave it alone? Every time they upgrade means more work on our end....ggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
