That merino/firestar is still sitting exactly where I photographed it. I can't face deciding what it should be.
See? It's on the new table right between the new chairs for Hubster's man cave that arrived last week. He's happy.
As an aside, if you want nice chairs and custom upholstery, I recommend Bassett Furniture. It's where I got my living room furniture too. Wears well, made well, tons of choices, comfortable, reasonable prices. On the other hand, if you want good customer service and intelligent sales people, avoid Bassett Furniture. That tube behind the chairs is fabric that the sales person swore I needed for arm covers because none of their furniture ever comes with them. All of my furniture has come with them. Whatever. I argued with her for awhile and then got the fabric. I wanted arm covers and I figured that between my crafty friends I could find someone who could fashion them. See the arm covers? The ones that came with the chairs? Now I'm going to have to fight with Bassett to take back the superfluous fabric. You would think that if you sold the chairs, you would make it your business to know what comes with them. Well, I would make it my business, anyway.
Last time, my order and my service were so crazy I got a 10 percent discount/refund on the whole thing from their central office... I was satisfied with that and the comfort and quality had me back through their doors, but you gotta be smart and detail oriented to shop there... Just sayin'. Would I go back? Absolutely. Just with a notebook and well caffeinated.
These singles, Heirloom colorway, Hello Yarn, knew exactly what they wanted to be. Looks like an heirloom tomato colored amoeba right now, but it will be a lovely Citron shawl some time soon... I'm on the 544 stitch ruching row right now and I want to throw it across the room, but soon... Actually? it looks wonky to me because the singles, at least early on, were so active that they slant this way and that. Blocked up, they might calm down. Also, the roving looked randomly colored as it came out of the bag, but as you can see, there was a pattern dyed in. Adrian's genius or serendipity. Genius I think.
Distraction time. Here is what the sun is doing to a tree outside my kitchen window right now.
Gorgeous. So I ran outside in my jammies (what the heck, I've already driven kids to school in them) and flip flops and took this picture.
Rachel... seriously. These colors. Yarn or roving, I don't care which, but like 2 pounds of it please... (yes, ok, when you're finished with the roving I have you working on today... I can be patient and as flexible as the next guy).
And then I talked to three neighbors who walked by with their dogs. And then I took this picture.
I love my skeleton flamingos and the mums I found this year are killer.
What was I talking about?
