Hello Friday

The countdown to the first day of school continues. Next week the elementary students begin and our preschoolers follow the day after Labor Day. Bit by bit we are getting there. I am also looking at Fridays and weekend with new eyes. I finished the first sleeve on my sweater this week and hope to get the second one done by Labor Day so I can go to my last class with just the shawl collar to finish. Now I just need some cooler weather.

I caked up my hand dyed Shetland yarn this week and I am on the hunt for a shawl pattern to show off these great colors. What about socks you say? Well, I just don’t think that is going to happen. Maybe some day or maybe not. I am contemplating Kay’s Celtic Shawl KAL but I’m not really sure how much yarn I have in these cakes.

Finally, I got my first Stitch Fix box this week and I love it all. I may never go to the mall again!

  1. I just love that yarn! And, an easy way to figure out how much yardage you have. Measure out several yards and weigh it – you can then weigh your cakes and have a pretty good estimate of how much yarn you have! 🙂

  2. That yarn is just lovely! (And Kat’s suggestion is the best way to figure out how much you’ve got there.) I also received my first Stitch Fix. I really, really loved 4 items — but there was one big clunker in there! It’s great, though — and I hate shopping so much that this may become my preferred shopping method. Enjoy the weekend! XO

  3. oh my, that yarn is amazing! I’m sure you know how much you have now and if you need any pattern suggestions, I’d love to help! (and I really need more details about your Stitch Fix!!)
