My anniversary with Sherpa is coming up on the 13th. I just can't believe it's been that long, it feels like no time at all.. and also kind of like its been this way forever. In his usual manner, Sherpa has been investigating gifts for me.. and then getting so excited he has to tell me about them and then give them to me. he's like that.
for example, observe my new shirt. yes, it says YARRRN. am i lucky or what? (yes, thats the pirate illusion scarf and his pirate hat. never let it be said he does things by halves)
This last week has been a bit dramatic. i cant really talk about it here because i dont want to threaten Sherpa's legal standing, but in short we may have to find a new place to have SnB because i might be way to furious with starbucks to ever step foot in one again.
what else? i started a new sock in foxy lady by cherry tree hill... and i'm not sure about it. i think it needs to be frogged unfortunately. its doing that thing where the lace keeps expanding and there's no explanation in the pattern as to how to keep it all pretty. i hate that. as i dont want a ballooning toe i might try something else. Plus it doesnt really do the yarn justice.. I'm liking Bells' monkey so much i might make those (no objections? mine won't be green...)
What else? i worked two very long days moving stock back into the finished part of the shop and i have bruises and sore muscles in places i didnt know had muscles. I. AM. WRECKED. But on the plus side we should be reopening next weekend (am i a bad person.. i'm kind of sad that a rainy day will no longer mean i get to stay home because we have a roof again).
ALSO: Special announcement! The very lovely apparently blogless Ceri is visiting Canberra from Tasmania at the moment and will with any luck be attending SnB on thursday :) She is a long time Happy Spider Yarn devotee and the sweetest person so please come along and greet the yarn sisterhood representative from the apple isle!
