This is the way we clean the house . . .

June 21, 2009

For whatever reason, when my mother got into town this week, she decided she needed to clean my house. Which is great, really. It meant I didn’t get a whole lot of knitting done, but I did get clean carpets and more. She even got my husband to hang things on the wall, which I’ve been trying for longer than I care to think about.  My mother is a force with which to be reckoned.

On a fun note, though, I got yarn from Brown Sheep. While I was at TNNA, I sold them a sock pattern I’d done in their Cotton Fine.  (Photo to come soon.) Normally, I’m not a cotton socks person, but this yarn has 20% wool in it; that gives it loft and memory.  They also asked me to design a shawl for them from the same yarn.  I am so psyched. I love designing and the idea of seeing my design used by other knitters makes me very happy.   So, as soon as I get the sock pattern written up, I’ll be working on the shawl.

That is, after I get my room more organized. You see, my mother is coming back Wednesday.  Yes, I’m 41 years old and getting my room clean for my mother.  She thinks I need to organize my yarn, fiber and books better!  I wonder if she has any idea what she’s really asking? Maybe it’s best to hop she doesn’t.
