Stuck home with Mom–Send bagels!Aquarium_and_life_in_august_008

Seriously, Owen and I are home alone this weekend.  Kevin and the other two are off to a christening in MD for his brother’s son.  John will be wearing the christening outfit both Cameron and Owen wore.  We bought it for Cameron at Harrods when we were living in London.  It is simply beautiful.  Maybe I will be able to dig up a picture.

Ralphy Baby–the yarn rep from Plymouth–came today.  He is such a sweet guy and it is always fun to have him in the shop.  It was also the Guild day so it was nice to introduce him to the ladies.  They have some nice new patterns at Plymouth.  Has anyone tried their new Speedway Needles?  Gee, they aren’t even on the website.

Knitpicks, I suppose,  has cornered the market on new needles.  I sure do want to give them a try.  I especially want this!  My mom has it on good authority (her friend Catherine) that Knitpicks needles are very nice!  Can they replace beloved Addis?

    Ok, am I a dunce? The link to that REALLY COOL Chart Keeper — THAT I definitely WANT — doesn’t have a “order” or “add to basket” or whatever. Does that mean it’s not yet available? I’m not that familiar with the Knit Picks site.

  2. Norma Says:

    The answer is: Yes, I am a dunce. Never mind. I just needed to go back to the home page and find the order page for that item.

    That Norma. Such a dunce. Shaking head and going to bed now. (Have fun on your weekend with ONE guy)

    enjoy the (relative) quiet! I can’t wait to try out the knitpicks needles too.

  7. Nancy Says:

    I love that chart thing it’s too cool.

    Risa (One Crazy Fiber Lady) showed me her Knitpicks needles and I’m in love. She’s an Addi lover also and swears they are just as good.

    What kind of bagels?
    Yes, on the needle question. I got the KP needles, and love them so much that I ordered a few more. Anybody want a whole bunch of Addis that I probably will never use again?

    Mmmmm bagels!! Onion bagels with cream cheese! Oh, that sounds SO good this morning! 🙂

    Holy toledo, I just looked at the KnitPicks needles….$4.99 for circulars?! That’s fabulous! Thanks for passing along the info, Katy! Enjoy your little sugar this weekend. That one-on-one time is so precious.

    Hey, Katy, how did I miss that neat little folding magnetic board? That would look so classy along with my needle set. I ordered two of them right away. You are such an enabler! I can’t wait until I see you and your charming mother at the sheep and wool festival. Such excitement!!!!!
