Happy Monday everybody! How are you? We're happy and hot and busy and riding the hands of time as they swoosh us onward to the next phase of summer and school and life.
It's been very hot the past few weeks but we've had no shortage of rain, so how can we complain? Most every afternoon has been in the high 90's and sometimes over 100 degrees.
Two major things happening - Benny has decided to quit all athletics this year and has gotten a job at Arby's. Emeline is starting preschool on September 3rd. Life moves forward and the family grows. After church on Sunday we went to the nursery to retrieve our two little babies and it was a strange realization that "they're not babies any more". They weren't in the nursery - they were still in their Bible classes - our class had gotten out a little early. Oh life, slow down. I'm planning a "what everybody's up to" post very soon.
So - the Pink Ribbon Sock project is essentially over. International buyers have started receiving their kits (I got the first email today confirming this) and the Pink Ribbon Sock pattern is now available to purchase as a download from Ravelry though a Ravelry membership is not required. The pattern cost is $5. Check out my Pink Ribbon Sock info page for puchase information.
While tidying up the loose ends of the PRS project I found that I have a few extra skeins of Pink Ribbon yarn. Anyone interested in Pink Ribbon yarn can check the end of this post - and there's even an extra large skein that would have a nice quantity of yarn for a shawl.
I'm dyeing about 20 skeins of supewash/nylon blend yarn today for the etsy shop so watch for that update starting tomorrow as I can get it listed - not sure what colors you'll see yet - it's going to be a surprise for both of us! :)
Everybody take good care of every little thing and check out my free Grrlfriend Market Bag pattern on Ravelry - post to come soon on the blog if you're not Ravelized! XOXOXOXOX

I tried putting up a PayPal "Buy Now" button for each one but they don't limit the quantity to just one, so that wasn't going to work - sorry!
