Just a bunch of random stuff
2. Cody is a champ. He is bouncing back to his pre-sick days and though he lost about 10% of his weight, he is getting his energy back and I'm sure we can get those pounds back on him fast. He has what sound like miracle drugs...one drug dissolves into a gel that coats any lesions on his intestines. The drugs are definitely working.
3. Do you like the sock? It is Noro sock yarn in one of the new colors that came out in the last few weeks. I'm usually not too big on Noro colors, but this, this I like. The second sock won't match by any stretch of the imagination, but that's OK too. The yarn feels pretty Noro-like...not quite consistent and a bit on the stiff side, but it still feels good. And so far none of those pesky Noro knots, nor none of that pesky Noro VM that occasionally appears.
5. Tim's gift from me was a step ladder that turns into a hand truck. Aren't I the romantic? We saw this on the Celebrity Apprentice last winter and I knew I had to get Tim one...it is perfect for toting his booth to craft fairs and setting it up. He is going to be at Eugene's Art and the Vineyard from July 4-6 at Alton Baker Park. We're hoping it is a very, very successful show for him. If you're in Eugene...or if you're visiting Eugene that weekend, stop by the booth and say hi!
7. And. Black Sheep Gathering is this weekend. I don't need anything...on my list, though, is to check out yarn from A Verb for Keeping Yarn, Mother McKenzie Miracle Dyes, and a woolee winder (just looking!). I'm excited but not too. Which is good.
