Summer time is always wonderful! This one has been a very special one after 10 months of being sick and being in the hospital! I do not think I will take another day for granted, especially the beautiful, 75 F and blue sky summer days!
At the end of July, my family and I went to Minneapolis, where my husband lived from age 12 on, to visit his family. One day all we did was to visit yarn shops and present my new book to them, since I did not have time to promote it.
We visited Crafty Planet, Bella Lana, Linden Hills Yarn and Depth of Field Yarn. The last two shops have been around for over 30 years! Good job knitters! Since I am all in favor of supporting yarn shop I did buy a little bit of yarn in each one of them, talked to the staff, looked samples and squished every skein available, of course.
There I have bought skeins of Classic Elite Yarn called Kumara, a yummy blend of merino and baby camel. New pattern will eventually be online for sale!
