Under Pressure/ Have you heard?

Well September is coming VERY quickly now. As all the commercials tell us it is back to school time and along with back to school is back to fall knitting. You can't tell me you haven't found a few nights this week cool and a few brisk mornings. This is of course good news to a knitter.

Just in case you hadn't heard by now....

So in honour of the fall and for all of us out there that like to shop online but like to fondle yarn in person too......Pick up sticks is almost ready! Connie is getting very excited and let me tell you. I have seen it. I have unpacked yarn....and it is beautiful. My fiance will know where to find me when I'm not home.

It is very exciting. Connie has wanted this for a long time. I'm so happy for her.

I'm happy for me too because my first sock pattern is going out with the sock club this month. I am very proud but I feel a certain amount of pressure to please all those sock club members. It is my first pattern and I'm sure it is not perfect so take it easy on me ok!

I have also put all my personal knitting aside because I have samples to knit for the store. This is the first time I have knit with Tapestry. I like the colour blending very much. The pattern is making me a little sick of the purl rows but other than that I can't wait to see what the pattern looks like when it is done.

The two boys are being very crazy. They run around the house and the yard and the gardens. This is one of their quiet moments.

Wow, there's a lot going on in your life! Of course I love the picture of your boys! Congrats on your first pattern. I'm not a member, but maybe you can post a picture, once everybody has received their kit? I wanted to try Tapestry for a long time now. Will Connie have it in her online store?
