I want to say thank you and sorry to all have been in during the last week. I haven't been feeling myself and finally made it to the doctor. I have bronchitis, ear infection, throat infection and a sinus infection. When I talk I am very raspy and it seems to bother others more than it bothers me. The coughing is annoying but it will go away soon. Hopefully. The worst part of this is that I haven't been able to get a good nights sleep.

The good part is that I have had a major urge to knit. I finished the neckband of Breezy last night.
 I had it on last night and love the weight. It is as light as a feather.
Now the sleeves.

Blue Sky Alapcas sent out an email today with these great pictures of their Royal Petites.

With the same exquisite color palette, twist, and hand as the full size hanks of Blue Sky Alpacas Royal, the petites are 100-yard balls geared towards smaller projects. 
  • Weight: 35 grams
  • Approx: 100 yards / 92 meters
  • Needle Size: 2-3 inches / 2.75-3.25 mm

We have 10 of the 14 colours in the store.
These seven patterns take one or two balls of the Royale Petites. I have a ball of yarn and the pattern for the Mitini Mitts sitting beside me. The fine people of Blue Sky Alpacas gave these at TNNA when you placed an order so that you could knit a sample for the store. I'm going to send it to Ann. She just finished a project and will get them done quicker than me.

Beth and I are having dinner with Sarah tonight. She has been in Canada for a few weeks for a family vacation and goes back on Sunday. She won't be back here again until Christmas so we have lots of visiting to do. Then Big Brother. Who will win the Power of Veto??
