Monday, Monday

It’s Monday.  And I just don’t generally like Mondays.  Although they do signal the return of the Daily Show and the Colbert Report, which is a small consolation.

My Monday started with sending all of my Moo cards off to Susie LaFond for the swap she is hostessing.  I can’t wait to see what I get back!  There have been so many fabulous Moos posted.

And, my Monday picked up a little bit more when I did some seaming and knit the collar on Ellie’s Cahaba River Jacket.  Now all I need to do is set in the sleeves and sew in the lining.

It actually fits — probably a total freak given my adventures with gauge of late.

And, if that wasn’t enough yarnie fun, I got to roll around in sock yarn send out October sock yarn to Elliebelly Club Sock members.  I had lots of fun dyeing it all up.

I guess it wasn’t all bad as Mondays go, after all.  Later in the week I get to fly up to Connecticut to bring  son #2, who goes to school up there, home for a visit.  I really despise flying, but I have lunch and yarn shopping to look forward to with an online friend before I drive over to the school.  And, I’m incredibly excited about getting to see my "baby" after six weeks away.

Please make a note to stop by and see the yarn I’ve got for you at Elliebelly at Hyena Cart when the store stocks Thursday at twelve noon Eastern time.  In addition to pretty yarn, I’ve painted a couple of tee-shirts for little ones.

  1. Ellie’s sweater looks great – partially due to the beauty of the model. I hope you enjoy your trip to Connecticut.

  2. Joyce, just to let you know that if you dye any baba yaga sock yarn let me know. I’m so there! I missed it the first go round and I’m kicking myself for not grabbing it when I had the chance!
