I haven’t felt much like knitting lately. I am working–or reworking–this sample from the shop. It is knit in Aurora from Noro. It’s kind of a poncho. I say kind of because it is knit flat and has three holes. We tried for ages to figure out how to wear this thing. Granny finally decided it was a three-seater outhouse cozy. I ripped it back to the first hole and have been reknitting it into a wrap. It’s an interesting yarn to work with. I think the effect is quite nice and I am not especially glitzy.
We have more reps coming to the shop. Patons has a new yarn that I am excited to see. Normally, I don’t go too crazy for Patons–and it’s not up on their website–but it made with soy and wool. I can’t wait to feel it. It self-stripes. I am a sucker for those striping yarns.
In other news, Cam is enjoying camp. The story of the dragon chicken lives on. Owen is reluctant to go to school on non afterschool respite days. He was so cute last night. We were all watching tv together and he happily said, "I want cookie." So we told him to go get one. With a song in his heart and a dance in his step, he ran to the kitchen saying, "I’m eating. I’m eating." I guess you had to be there but it was so cute.
