Loving this place!

Yesterday I went with my fellow teacher who was looking for some size 7 circulars. Well the one shop was closed so we decided to go to another one that I had been invited to but have never been to close to home. It was a beautiful home and inside it was all types of yarns. It was great feeling and touching everything inside. We sounded like two giddy people ohh, and ahh'ing over everything. The ladies were wonderful and so nice. I am definately going there again, for the yarn and the warm fuzzies. Thanks to The Kitting Room in Lodi.

Spring Cleaning

Yes, I know it has been a LONG time since I have blogged, but I have a good reason. Kids, kids, and school. Yes, being a first year teacher is really hard work, not to mention every other thing that I need to do in my own personal life. I've already started cleaning out my yarn bins and organizing everything from needles, yarn, stitch holders and books. I am about 1/4 there, but it is a start. I am so glad to have two weeks off it feels great to have some me time for a change. I started my vacation with a trip to the LYS and I had a fab time. I bought some great yarn (I already have lots of this already, but who's counting?) I spent all day yesterday casting on for a pair of socks and I am really excited about them. I think this year I am focusing on making some gifts for Christmas. I always try and make gifts but it never gets done. This year I am going to try to accomplish this task.
