Very nice Matt!  Of course if I had that view I would get nothing done!

The cat in the inbox is awesome, and you did a spectacular job on the workshop!

I have to say... My hands were really cramping by the time I finished the purple scarf, but once I took photos and went up for the night... It felt SO weird not to be knitting something!  It's become a compulsion.  So I grabbed more yarn.

Uh oh, it is happening...she is becoming a yarn addict!  Soon there will be bags and boxes of yarn stashed all around the house with the intention of doing "something" with it "someday!"

Matt, your wookroom looks great!

Larissa, you're not knitting in your sleep yet are you?  :-\

Kimberly, I kinda gave up on "spring cleaning." I just need to get the basics done once a week and I'm good.

As for me, today I met one of my sellers at the store. She was dropping off some new stuff before she heads out of town for a few days.
Paid bills, wrote out checks for my sellers for last months sales, and baked Lemon bars for 1st Thursdays this week. It's going to be cooler and maybe some rain. I do hope people come out though.

I believe I sold my Mosaic Box, I received an email, she wanted to know if there was a better price. Well, I gave in and offered 10% to which she agreed. Now - I am not jumping for joy until I have the mulah.....

I've been working my butt off all day, but have nothing tangible to show for it yet. Still need to upload a couple more things to my shop here today.

The change is cat approved  ;D Though it is not an inbox.... I origionally put it there to dry some black walnuts, it was commandeered by the cat, so I made sure to put it back in the same place... (Oh the sacrifices we make for our critters)

Congrats on the sales!  Happy Dance with you, except that I am tired so I'll just  dance from my seat!


Matt, we completely understand critter sacrifice.  We live in a very small house and have 200 pounds of dog roaming around.  I have sacrificed my toes many times tripping over them in the middle of the night.

Oh Larissa, you are now one of us!  :)   ;D  It happens to me all the time that I just have to be doing something with my hands and it bugs me when I don't have an actual project anymore.

I finished a sweater and am halfway through another one.  :)

Congrats on those orders!!!

Yarn hanging around?  Ha, there already!  The box I'm working from (the lavender & cream I've been using so far) is a box of yarn & needles that my mom bought for me at one of her estate sales.  The subject of the estate was a knitter, so my mom suggested I go through the box & see what I wanted.  Um... all of it, duh!  Luckily, most of it still had the labels on, so I know what they are.  Makes it easy for ME to label per Sandi's awesome tutorial once they're purchased.  So yeah, last night at midnight when I was heading up to bed, I bypassed the bedroom & continued on to the attic to hit the box & pick. 

And my family gets it already, so the black skein I'm using for the new scarf (it'll be black & cream stripes) is from my sis.  She needed like 3 more pieces for a latch hook rug kit that was short, so she bought a whole skein of Vanna's Choice from Lion Brand, cut her 3 pieces... and then gave it to me.

Today was awesome.  I spent most of the day in school.  My friend's mom is a special ed teacher, so she let me shadow her pre-school class.  And then in the afternoon, she brought me over to a special ed class of 2nd-4th graders.  It was really an awesome experience and I'll be back.  I had so much fun helping out with the kids, and it really gave me an idea of how the pros handle kids with multiple issues.
