Oh Cinderella... Where are you?




No, I am not expecting any kids / grandkids that I know of. But I couldn't resist this pattern from Fiber Trends when it arrived at The Yarn Grove to make these Felted shoes. I got a ball of Kraemer Mauch Chunky in Pink Lemonade and in one evening, had them knit up. The felting took place the next day and of course, finding the perfect "tie" for them took even longer. But here they are and now all I have to do is wait for a baby to come along ...




Busy goings on here at the homestead. Mom went to NC for a month so I am catching up on my stuff. Dental appt, etc. I am terrified of the dentist. Have been since I was 10yo. Talk about going back to childhood? Oh yeah. I love Annie who works in my dentist office and she is a dear friend. When she calls to remind me of my appts., I always remind her to meet me in the parking lot with oxygen and nitrous gas. It's quite embarassing actually. But my dentist just smiles through all my apologies and excuses for my behavior and puts the gas mask on me. Night night.




As for The Yarn Grove, we anxiously await another enormous shipment of Nature's Palette fingering weight, Lorna's Laces Sport and more sock weight, Woolley Boulley yarn (new indie dyer for us) and more... And we're going to TNNA in June to find some more loot for you! This June it is in Columbus OH - never been there - don't know what's there. Any help from the audience?? Let me know if there is something special I should take in, etc.

Jane - What is TNNA? I am from southeasten Ohio (about 100 miles from Columbus) and if this has anything to do with knitting and is open to the public I would love to go.

If you'll make two more booties, I'll put then on your grand dog.

I live in Columbus some 20 years ago and I can't say there is anything there that could possibly compete with TNNA. Lot's of corporate headquarters and, if shopping anywhere other than a yarn shop is your thing, just about any store imaginable. Oh yes, there is German Village which used to have some great little restaurants and coffee shops, but I'd say gobble up all the excitement at TNNA rather than spending your time fighting the Columbus traffic.
