I hope your weekend was a doughnut (insert any of your chosen treats) filled delight! Mine was not only filled with doughnuts (still coming down off the sugar – evil stuff I tell you. E V I L.) but the most delightfully awesome, completely not planned meet-up you could ever imagine. Out for tacos and who were we sat right next to? Ann and her pal. I love them. I’ve not had the privilege of meeting Kay but I sure hope to meet her some day!
But why are you in TN you might wonder? I won’t bore you with details but it all started with a hole in the wall (several years ago I might add) at the house and ended with ‘you need to not live here for a week or so’ so I checked out airbnb for a place that takes pups and we hit the road for Nashville. Easy drive, I can get a giant chunk of work done in some quiet (it can be a funny thing working on super wooly knits/yarn/designs when it’s high summer but think ahead we must!) and they have biscuits. I’m joking a lot here. It’s actually been a pretty stressful time so a change of scenery was not only physically necessary it was good for the peace of mind too.
And in other news this week….
- Shhh. I don’t want to spook it, but I think all that casting on and knitting two rows or ‘swatch fest, the spring 2016 edition’ might be history. Saturday afternoon I was forced (by my own self though a little shamed by my darling sister as well) to just keep going and I’m so glad that I am.
- Calligraphy though pretty heavily modified from the get go. I’m playing yarn chicken and I know that sounds funny coming from me but I only have the three skeins of No. 013 (small batch really is small!) on hand and I don’t want to run out! The struggle. It’s really real
- This week is a big big shipping week. Classics at the end of the week! The rest of the IG shipping.
- Shoes. These are like sandal versions of sneakers. Not nearly as high as they look – right around 2” with a 1.25” platform. I’m not known for my graceful tendencies (my husband regularly wishes he had a video montage of all the ‘trips’ I’ve taken over the years) so I’m not a super high heel/platform kind of gal. These are game changers for me! So so comfy!!! Great summer kick around shoe price point and cute colors! I also love these and these and these.
Photo doesn’t really do them justice. Really cute on!
Have a great week and stay cool!
