It's a tough job, but someone has to do it!

My job - working at a yarn shop (not the being a mommy part) is hard - let me tell you!

I spend all day surrounded by beautiful yarn and lovely patterns, charming people (ok there are a few doozies, but it's retail and let's face it - you're not going to like EVERYONE you meet), and pure inspiration.

Take for instance this past Saturday - I worked a 13-hour day. We sat with two different yarn reps for a total of 8 different yarn companies and shopped for 10 hours non-stop. We were so exhausted that we had to replenish ourselves with dinner at Provino's. Tough work I'm telling you!


Ok so really I did work 13 hours on Saturday - if you consider it "work" Isn't that what everyone tells you - find something you LOVE to do and you'll never work another day - it's true.

We bought gorgeous yarns and I cannot wait until things start arriving! I also cannot wait until market this weekend. It's is tons of fun - it is work and it is exhausting, but it is glorious! I am so very blessed to have the opportunity to work with Ginger and Dana - they are really wonderful and I love them!

I've got photos!!! First here are a few of the Mason Dixon washcloths I keep working on:

There there are craftroom photos: - it looks bad, but let me assure you - it's 100 times better than where it started - right girls? It's still coming along and hopefully I'll have ti workable before I leave for market!
