Do you want to know why I have so much time to knit? Because I have staff. These two mow my lawn.
I have the most handsome lawn guys in the neighborhood. And they do a fabulous job. They even clean their bedroom occasionally!
While they were mowing the lawn today, I worked on a test knit for Susan. This is Pumpkin Patch, named after the little pumpkin shapes the cables make. I’m calling mine Sangria Twist.
The yarn is HandMaiden Casbah, colorway Sangria, purchased at Knitty Noddy. The yarn is heaven and the deep saturated color is amazing. Evelyn ships extremely quickly and she has something else that you may want. She’s taking preorders for Addi Turbo interchangeable needles!!! Why yes, I do have them on order.
It may be a little quiet around this blog next week. Don’t worry! It’s not serious, but Honey and I are heading for Mayo Clinic tomorrow night. (We only live 3 hours from there, so why not head for the best!!!) Honey ripped a bicep muscle this summer and he’s having it reattached. I’d show you a photo but he objected. When he holds his arm out, the muscle rolls up like a window shade. It’s really nasty and has been quite painful for him. Please keep him in your prayers on Tuesday. His arm has to be kept immobilized for 4 weeks and my guy is right handed and guess which arm he hurt? Yep!
I’m sure I’ll have lots of knitting to show you next week. It’s going to be lots of sitting and waiting for me.
Oh, and say a prayer for Nana too. She gets to homeschool a 4th grader!?!
