Cleaning Gnomes

People often comment on how nice and organized the shelves in the shop look. Do I suddenly have cleaning gnomes? Nope, I've got Annie.
Here she is doing what she spends a lot of her time doing, pulling yarn off the shelf and completely rearranging it. She is the only reason this place is not a complete disaster area 'cuz we all know how tidy I am.

So Much Fun!

Well, I'm off topic already but I have to write about it.
I went to Little Nephew's spring concert this morning. After the concert, we moved out to the front lawn of the school where the kids taught all the grown-ups how to do all the dances they learn in music class. Absolutely the most fun I've had in ages.

A few weeks ago, a thought crossed my mind. What if I were to take all my unfinished objects and finish them one at a time until I had none left. And then I went, that's just crazy talk! Crazy!
Then, without really meaning to, I started finishing UFOs. First was a scarf, then a pair of socks, then another pair of socks. I have a sweater for my sister that just needs some finish work, a shawl that's a shop sample that's almost done and a cotton cardigan that I may actually want to wear this summer. Hmmm, I might be onto something. I thought about it a bit more and decided to keep finishing things for as long as I could stand it with the exception that I was allowed to have one pair of socks going at all time. I really can't function without a pair of socks on needles. It's just how I am.
So, here I am finishing UFOs without having really set out to. Let's see how far I get!

So, I'm back

I've been thinking about this poor neglected blog for a while and wondering how to restart it. I thought maybe it would be good to re-purpose it a little. I'd been using it as the blog for everything but I think it will be better if I narrow the focus to knitting and the shop with possibly a side of sewing. I just started a cycling blog. It is if you are interested.
So that's my plan. Stay tuned!
