Lots of boxes

The back of Mr. Canada Post's van was full of boxes for us. Four from madelinetosh - we have lots of vintage now. One from Crystal Palace with sock yarn - Sausalito and Panda Silk. The last box was from Lynda with a new shawl for the store.


Pattern: Old Shale Shawl - free on Ravelry
Yarn: Tosh Chunky - 5 skeins of wilted rose
Needles: 6mm

Lynda said that the pattern was very easy to follow and it looks great finished.

Beth and I did a bit of shopping after work. Aunt Rene was showing us her Roomba at Thanksgiving dinner last night.
Specially designed to better handle pet fur, hair and other fibers, the iRobot Roomba 630 Vacuum Cleaning Robot gives you clean floors at the push of a button. Using a patented, three-stage cleaning system, Roomba vacuums your carpets, tile, laminate and hardwood floors for you. AeroVac™ Technology and a new brush design maximize cleaning results, with less hair remaining tangled on bristles and a more evenly filled bin.
Now we have one. Beth had it going but it kind of freaked out the dogs. She's going to try tomorrow afternoon when they can run outside while it is cleaning our floors. So far we are giving it two thumbs up. It picked up a lot of dog hair.

Here is the iRobot website so you can see what I'm talking about...

Gotta run. I have a few more boxes to pack (Lynda is anxious for more yarn) and then Big Break is on. Windward is growing and I should have some pictures tomorrow.
