Some thoughts

7 Small Shawls: T - 104 days and counting down.

Before we begin, a few random thoughts:

1. Legos have the ability to drift like snow. Really. This is true. They pile up in corners and along walls. You have to watch that.
2. I've been self-medicating with carbohydrates.
3. I have a freaking ton of energy today!
4. I have four vacuum cleaners. This is not normal.

Now that we have that out of the way....

Yesterday I went to a little open house at a local wood products store with Mr. Romi and the boys. I've never been able to go in years past (too busy), but this year I was determined. And I'm so glad I went. It's actually a mini trade show with vendors and a great (complimentary) lunch of bbq: tri-tip, fresh albacore, and chicken. Nom! I was excited because I love the trade show atmosphere: people super excited about their products and chatting. Great energy. Plus there was a guy there who seriously knew his finishes, my favorite part of Mr. Romi's biz. And he gave us a color chip book. Bonus!
I love color chips. And this book is even better than all of my Pantone ones!

I had to rush around in the afternoon to get all of my orders out, but it was so worth it to go!

By the way, I've finally got the beginning of my new shawl together. It's working. I'm paying attention. The corner is rounded. Yes!
I'm really happy with the concept and my mental image so far. You are so going to love it. And I've got the charts far enough along that I can indulge in my audiobook (between the wholesale and retail pin/pattern orders, and the two secret projects, that is). I may even be learning to schedule myself better.
It's all good. :)

I am intrigued! Have to wonder how you can top Celaeno. Can't tell you how much I am enjoying this knit. Nine more rows to go. I'm excited to finish, but a little sad that it will be over soon. I know how to recify that--start another!

Loved the interesting comment about legos.... having had to have one removed from my son's lung.....I totally agree that they can end up in random places:)
Love the patterns and admire your accomplishments, wish I could do as much.

I have no idea why the most current shawl is taking me forever! Those first 7 repeats of 12.... for whatever reason... is taking me forever!
