it certainly has been awhile since I have connected to you all via
cyberspace here. When I start hearing customers say "I was starting to
get worried about you because you haven't been sending emails" that
means it's time to hunker down and get back at 'er. I have had an
incredibly busy summer this yarn from my kids camps (which were AMAZING)
to scheduling new classes, I was the MOH in a wedding, I renovated my
apartment then I took a week long vacation (finally, I know!) and right
after coming back from that, literally the day after I drove down to
Barrie for a trade show and then last weekend drove to the
Kitchener-Waterloo Knitter's Fair and set up my double booth for a day
of crazy fun! On top of all of that... I have now caught a cold and have
had to stay home for a few days. But I'm back now with tons of new info
all of this yarn....
