The Wool Barn

On our drive into the city last week, I saw this little wool store. I looked at my husband and said, "I think we're 30 minutes early for our appointment. Could we stop just for a minute?" As I stepped into the store, I new that I couldn't go home with out a purchase.

There were skeins and skeins of wool rolled nicely in baskets.
I have never seen such beautifully dyed colors.
Then I picked up this skein of multi-colored wool
I thought could make some beautiful scarves.
The clerk looked at me and said,

"Do you know how to knit
or do you know how to to roll the skein into a ball?

I looked at her and said,
"I have no clue what you're talking about, but please help me."

So she guided me to this tool.

I still have no clue what it's called but she put me to work
and I spun this handle round and round
until the skein was nicely woven into a round ball.

This is the end result.
I wanted to start knitting immediately.

Meanwhile, once you get home,
there's so many
other things that take priority.
I had both my little grandsons today and enjoyed the day outside
showing them the new born lambs.

Meanwhile I made some fresh Paska, using Laurie's recipe.

They are Oh.. so yummy!

I will be out of blogland for the next week and will
be working on some new projects overseas.

The ocean is calling my name.
I'll show you the results later.

I've packed two pedometers along just keeping check.
Have a great week and enjoy the sun.


  1. I'm surprised you found time to bake paska! (You have your priorities straight.)

    So is your wool going along on vacation? Will your model be wearing your project at the pool again? We look forward to the pictures!

    Have a wonderful time across the sea...and soak up that vitamin D!

  2. Have a wonderful holiday!!

  3. I hope you have a wonderful time.

  4. Enjoy your trip, wherever you are going 'overseas'.

    Have you packed your yarn and knitting needles along with your pedometer?

  5. Two favorite scents: The scent of yarn, and baking bread! Hope your trip is a delight.

  6. I'm just checking in to see if you are 'home again'!
