Stash enhancing

February 28, 2007

From Stitches West:

2 Merino/Tencel roving in a teal/silverish colorway

Corriedale Roving (Mahagony) all roving is from Carolina Homespun

2 hanks of Sock Candy (cotton/elite) in colorway Lapis from Blue Moon Fiber Art  (this yarn is so soft and stretchy.)

3 hanks of Koigu  KPPPM in colors that look like fruitloops.  I believe is says on it P111.

Set of Brittany Needles

2 sets of sock needles (not shown) in sizes 2 1/2 and 1 1/2.  I have never seen half sizes in sock needles, for some reason that made me happy.

1 bottle of Lavender wool wash.

From the yarn store that is going out of business:

Jordana Paige “The Knitter’s Purse”

Bag (10 balls) of Debbie Bliss Cathay in black.  It is a cotton/microfiber/silk blend.

4 hanks of Cherry Tree Hill Silk/Merino Blend in various colorways.  I think I am going to make a clapotis with them and rotate different balls in different rows, since they have similar colors in the colorways.

3 hanks of Cotton Chenille from Crystal Palace yarns, 2 in a dark blue and one in a bright pink color.

1 hank of Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in a Birch colorway.

3 rubber stamps, one with a spinning wheel and a dragon and 2 with balls of yarn (one went to my magic yarn ball swappee.)

3 Tree buttons

6 Hello Kitty buttons

YES, I am a happy girl.

Oh, and to top it off, I have a job interview.  There are 3 job openings in this company.  The interview will either be on Thursday or Friday.  It will be a bit of a commute, so I have a lot to think about, but not as bad as when I use to commute in Washington.  It is money and it is in a field I am highly familiar with, health insurance.  It will put Tony and I one step closer to buying a house.

With Sierra going to school all day in the Fall, it would only be a bit of an adjustment for Madeleine.  However, atleast she would be home with Tony for most of the day.  I would only need to find childcare from the time he goes to work at 2:30pm to when I would get home around 5:30pm.  I think the hardest adjustment is going to be between me and Tony as I will hardly get to see him.
