Look!! A yarn shop!!

That's pretty much what my office looks like right now. Mr. Man made this handy-dandy display rack for the yarn. I put out all the yarn we have done so I can put prices on everything for SAFF. Here's what it looks like:

So, I guess you can see what I'm doing for the rest of the day. We have sold several skeins already and some lucky folks will be getting their purchases in the mail today!

I worked on Hey Teach! last night and finished up the side I was working on. It took a while since I had to frog a bunch of it after I realized I had forgotten to do the decreases for the arm hole. I was just knitting right along and then I thought.....hmmmm.......aren't I supposed to do some decreases?? Yeah, like 30 rows ago. FROG.

Anyhow, now the back and both sides are finished and I'll be moving right along to the sleeves soon.

Mr. Man got these cool pics of a Praying Mantis the other day:

Slim caught what appeared to be a Northern Ring Neck snake yesterday that was really cute but, of course, I couldn't find the camera. I rescued him from the grips of these vicious cats though so he is back out in the world enjoying life. He looked just like this though:

See how vicious they are? I regularly have to fight for my desk chair.

Yum.. those yarns look gorgeous! *makes grabby hands gesture toward rack* I already see a bunch of colorways that I am putting on my mental wishlist.

Well, I know where a good chunk of my money will be going at SAFF.

Those cats are great! Very funny to read about their viciousness and then see their sweetness, too.

Good luck with SAFF! Your presentation looks great

Wow, "color" me impressed. You've been working HARD! Looks great!

Wow! You really do look like a yarn shop. Just need some needles hanging next to them and voila! Are you going to do some worsted weight an dk and bulky stuff too?
Snakes are icky. We'll just have to agree to disagree.
And ya know, I think Slim hasn't minded those kittens joining your family one bit no matter how aloof he is when you question him about it.

I think I should get one of those fancy organizers for my house. :) Then I would construct some kind of big glass/plastic case to go over it and put up a sign that says "Keep Out!" and it would be written in moth language. Yep that would be swell. :)

Oh, wow! Can I come shop in your yarn shop? I can be there in about an hour :)
