Knitter's Frolic, getting ready to travel and new yarns

I haven't written anything yet about the Knitter's Frolic. This is Saturday, April 22 in Toronto. I will have a booth there along with other vendors selling anything to do with knitting. There are great workshops being offered from instructors including Lily Chin and Maureen Mason-Jamieson.

Trying to get ready to go away tomorrow which means a late night of chores.
  1. Getting the house clean because the cleaning ladies are coming on Friday. Don't want them to see the house a mess
  2. The newsletter is at the printer. I have to print off mailing labels so that Jane can get the newsletter out while I am away. This is a job that I hate so the timing is perfect
  3. Make a list for the ladies of other jobs to do in the store
  4. Make price signs for the new yarns that arrived today.
  5. Laundry and packing.
  6. Shining my golf shoes.
Luckily it is a good tv night-American Idol, Amazing Race and Big Break.

The afghan is almost finished. If I get my chores done I will sit down and finish it tonight. I have big tassles to make for each corner so it won't be completely done until I get home. Still waiting for the throw pattern from Trendsetter. If it doesn't get here tomorrow I will have to pack something else to knit.

I mentioned new yarns arriving today. Hempathy from Elsebeth Lavold is a blend of cotton and hemp. Angelica is my favourite sweater from her new book.

I also unpacked new colours of Cotton Classic (Tahki) and the some spring yarns from Stacy Charles.

Have a great trip!! When you get back there will be a lovely new Naturally Easy Raglan sweater waiting for you.

See you at the Frolic.

Have a good time Julie; Ed is jealous that you will be golfing! It's great that you will be at the Frolic; can't wait to see you! I know I have to come out to your store this summer. Good luck on the links!

Hi there,

I just found your blog, it was a great read! Just thought it may interest you to know, a while back i managed to find a british labels company who printed me some mailing labels for a really low price. If you are at all interested then it may be worth taking a look at their website.
