So I'm busily writing away when I checked the website. I totally forgot to add this yarn. It's there now but the shade cards aren't there yet. You can see the shades on Rowan's website...

Do you ever have the discussion
"If we had unlimited money and were building a new house it would have............."

-We need a bigger kitchen because the dogs always want to be in there when we are cooking.

-I want a bigger laundry room that has shelves and a table for folding laundry. I also want somewhere to hang clothes that don't go in the dryer.

-Today I came up with a new one. I want a Blocking Room. Lots of tables. Long tables. And a sink. Last night I blocked a cowl for Beth and it is on the island in the kitchen. I just blocked a scarf and my Color Play Mohair Wrap. They are spread out on styrofoam that is lying across my bathtub. But the styrofoam isn't long enough so the knitting is doubled over. My Blocking Room will be really long so anything I block can lay out flat.

There are more but those are the three big ones.

I was just getting ready to hit Publish when my computer made a noise to let me know that I had a new email. UPS let me know that they are bringing a box tomorrow.
Fine Art is supposed to be in the box.
