Hello out there everybody! :)
Yesterday was a good day. I got some yarn dyed up and a good bit of it is already spoken for. I do, however, have two skeins that I'll tell you about in a minute. There's one Canada Sock Kit still available if anybody is interested!
Yesterday Suzannah suggested we eat out for lunch. I might not have mentioned that we are still a one-car family since Jeff's encounter with a deer back in January. We've been trying to be conservative with our finances as we anticipate court and extra summer travel related to that. Eating out for lunch sounded like a great idea except that our second stroller is in the car and I only had one.... and even though I'm saving up for it, I still don't have the double stroller that I mentioned in an earlier post.
So out came the Snugli pack. And in went Ms. Lila Pearl, who is now over 17 pounds. Suzannah pushed Emeline in the stroller. We slathered on the sunblock, tied on the watermelon hat and off we went to a cafe downtown. It's a half mile walk to get there - easy peasy. But about half a block from home I was knowing this would be quite a workout for me carrying Lila in the Snugli. This is me trying to take a picture of Lila - apparently my arm isn't quite long enough.
Our little town has lots of great bronze sculptures that make the walks interesting. Here's a new one that I absolutely love. On the other side is the boy's backpack on the ground leaning against the fence. It's a working lamp that's actually at someone's home by their driveway and it's also their mailbox.
So about that yarn. I did a practice batch so I could try out a new colorway before dyeing the actual yarn for a custom order. This is called Hydrangea and two skeins will go into the SugarBunnyBlvd etsy shop hopefully later today when I have a minute. Unless I get comments or emails sooner from someone wanting to buy it! :)
Hydrangea - a pretty variegated mix of purple, lavender, periwinkle, light pink, and fuschia. This really makes me think a lot of the variations possible with the beautiful hydrangea flowers depending on the soil they're grown in.
