On Sunday, these appeared:
A little more red, a little more overflowing. I happen to see the woman putting them in and we had a little conversation about the red and overflowing request. She indicated that these would in fact grow up and overflow more. Still not sure that my landlord will like it.
As I was closing and taking in the flag on Sunday afternoon, another woman came up to me and here was our conversation:
Woman: "Excuse me, where did the boxes go?"
Me: "What boxes?"
Woman: "The flowers."
Me: "Oh, they came and took them and replaced them with these?"
Woman: "Who did?"
Me: "The people who brought the first ones."
Woman: "I didn't replace these."
Me: "I guess you'll have to talk to my landlord about that. Do you have his number?"
Woman: "No.".....silence. Turns and walks away.
Apparently she is the bearer of the first batch of "red and overflowing" and was not approached about re-doing them. I felt bad.
Meanwhile, the Lace-a-long drew a nice group for the first session. Thanks again to Stephanie for the idea and who came with two week old Zachary - so sweet! Some beautiful lace projects were started. Some beautiful projects already in progress too. Join us when you can. Every Saturday, 10:30-noon through a date in August I can't remember right now but will post again.
Show and Tell!
See the little strip of yarn on the left? That's what she had left of the scarf.
And her own hand dyed scarf and sock-in-progress:
Aren't the colors beautiful????
Pat's beret made with her own hand dyed sock yarn (made with the Louet kit in the class at the shop!):
Nancy's Picovoli tank, made in the class at the shop:
Beautiful! Stay tuned for the "final" product (she's going to put a picot eding on it!)
Trudi's Textured Circle Shrug made with Frog Tree Merino Melange (a yarn I don't have but comes highly recommended for me to look into getting!):
LOTS of oohs and aahs over this at the shop on Saturday, leading to a conversation about having this as a class. It's knit in the round - no seams!
Off to enjoy my days off!
