I love my Husband

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on January 15, 2009

He’s the best! Lots of things are happening. A vendor pulled out of the Janesville Knit-in and they asked me to vend this year instead. I’ve got 20+ days to prepare for it. I’m still working for the engineering company, teaching knitting for the good folks at Knitch and now this! How exciting right? well, my husband has been winding yarn for me while I’m doing other work. Isn’t that nice of him to suppore me like that? He’s a great husband. I’ve been dying up a storm to get ready and also plan to have undyed yarns and sell 34 colors of the professional dyes I use to make the blanks.

My friend’s are great too. All of them have been so supporting, so encouraging. I can barely stand it! :) Pat’s been helping me make the sock blanks on the knitting machine, bless her heart. Jean’s been helping me figure out what colors people will buy (and loaning me every dye pot she owns for my adventures). Cristel, Karen, Rose Ann, Sue, Arlene, Shirley, Lynn…… I love and appriecate you all. :) Damn, but life is good

Look at my pictures and you can tell I’ve been busy

I wish there was some sort of machine that would stop time so you got to do all of the things you want to do during the day. Wouldn’t that be nice? everything would stop for a bit or slow down and you’d have the opportunity to do more with your day? Wishful thinking, but it still makes me smile.

I’ve spent most of this week getting ready to teach some classes on Monday and playing catch up at work. Had to design a new blank pattern using worsted weight wool (the purple socks with the diamond pattern) and then make the blanks. A friend of mine, Pat, helped me by making the sock blanks on her bulky machine. I don’t have a machine that would handle the two strands of worsted weight yarn, so Pat made them for me. Thank you dear Pat, you did such a nice job on them. Here’s a rose for you :)

Can’t believe it’s January all ready. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, full of love and family. Here’s some of the thing’s I’ve been knitting on lately:

These are socks made on a circular sock machine
