I want to make myself an empty room.
Quiet whitewashed walls with slant sunshine
And a fresh breeze through open windows.

This has been a busy work week for sure! Given that one of the yarn mills that I typically deal with could not get the yarn to me that I needed for the August yarn club after patiently waiting for many weeks, I switched gears and went with a different base yarn from another reliable yarn mill.
While I was waiting, I took some time to process the pictures that Ashley was so kind to model in the Moon Shadow Shawl designed by Romi Hill.
I've already told you how much I enjoyed knitting it and every day when it greets me in the shop, it makes me smile.
It was a wonderful knit!
The yarn for the yarn club mailing finally arrived on Monday and the dye-pots have been full steam ahead. Most of the yarn is now dyed and either drying or shipped thankfully.
After dyeing this yarn, I'm thinking this base may have been a better choice. It's been delightful to work with!
Next week will be a busy week getting ready for Amy Herzog's retreat in Sebasco Maine and then the following weekend with be my favorite Fryeburg Fair.
I am so looking forward to visiting and chatting with old and new customers!
