Watching paint dry

Once upon a time there was a girl named Alice, she followed a sheep in through a yarn store door and was never heard from again. Oh wait a minute, here I am, found my way back up from the build out and think the 18 hour days may be at end, or maybe just changing from building to stocking.

But the build out is done, with master minding from my dear husband, a ton of help from the 16 year old and bits and pieces from the rest of the family. Cement overlay was done last Saturday, stained Sunday night, sealed Monday waxed Tuesday and shelves delivered yesterday. Right now I am waiting for the building inspector and trying to figure out how to organize all the yarn I have in boxes in the storeroom. Really I just need a nap, but I want to sew the second side on the bag I made out of Noro Daria – it is so cool! Have you seen that stuff? Have to find another skein cause I want the handle longer – will just have to cut it and graft on cause I am not unsewing the one side that is on to get at the strap seam.

Well the camera is at home and the photo editing program is there too, so you will just have to wait for pictures – or all you Portland people can come in a week – June 17th and visit me. If you find me here make sure you tell me you are a Yarnland friend

But I can find pictures of a great book that came in today, there are so many cool things in this book.

I am going to try some of the knitted beaded wire napkin rings.

Now I have to go wax the bathroom floors.

I've always intended to do those napkin rings and even swatched: but I never did get back to them- still need to go buy the supplies. Hope you enjoy them.

I'm glad to have met you this past Saturday! It's funny how the blog-world, especially knitting blogs, can make the world feel that much smaller. I look forward to visiting your store again! (PS and soon I'll post pictures of the baby bootie/mary janes I'm making out of the cotton patine I bought from you!)
