    The owner of my local yarn shop, who I've talked to a few times in the shop and on Instagram, saw some of my stuff on IG and asked me to make a couple of samples for her holiday showcase. She supplied the yarn and chose the patterns (although the first one was a pattern I had already done for myself and posted on IG, which is what generated her request). The samples have been turned in and the showcase is this weekend WOOT. Also, they pay in store credit, so I have a fairly large amount of money to spend in the shop guilt-free. Exciting times.

    I love that shawl on the bottom! I wish I could get one of those made around here in a heavier yarn... I have an afghan made of this awesome chenille feeling thick yarn
    This pattern is very popular right now. It's called "Lost In Time." There might be some folks on Etsy doing custom orders.
    I’ll give it a look!

  • Last Jedi Tickets

    Unfortunately with three kids on five different sports teams, I can’t buy tickets this far in advance without knowing their schedules... hoping hubby and I luck out and can get opening weekend tickets mid-November. We lucked out for TFA.

    @janepatrickmarch you’re right! I’ve only watched hotel, Roanoke and a few episodes of this season but the tragedy of Liz was SO sad I found myself tearing up a few times. Even Kathy bates’ character was tragic. I’ll take your word on the other seasons...

    I enjoyed the storyline this season, I stopped watching two episodes ago as the clowns were just too much... knowing that they show that they are just our known characters in masks might help me so I’m going to give it another try... it’s scary, and somewhat interesting but you’re right - Sarah Paulson grated on my very last nerve and is a huge distraction! I hope she’s not on next season...
