That is beautiful yarn. I've made a top from on of their solid colors. It's a little crunchy feeling to work with but it's very nice when it's all done. I'm glad you're back, safe and sound. My sympathy on your Dad. It's good to have a loving and supportive family.


Welcome home, hon! I've got relatives in Kansas too, so I know where you're coming from. And you didn't even mention the wind and the dust! :-) That yarn is absolutely gorgeous!

I missed you Bron!! The parents...been there, done have my most heartfelt understanding and empathy. Be kind to yourself now that you are home!! Great yarn from Elann!! Yummy! Lisa in Oregon


Welcome home sweetie! Take a deep breath, pick up your needles and relaaaaax. That yarn is really pretty - my kind of colors!

Monk's my hero :)


I'm glad you're back safe and sound. Sorry to hear that the trip was awful. Lots of knitting and crochet therapy is in order - go roll in your new yarn (smile).


Hi Bron! Sorry to hear that it was awful for you. Do you need to rest up now? Hopefully you do not have pressure to do anything straight away and you can look after yourself for a while. I recommend some yarn purchasing therapy! Cheers


Thanks for the good thoughts, Larry, and your opinion of the yarn. It *does* feel scrunchy on the ball & I was wondering if it would feel differently knit up. Guess I'll have to make a (gasp!) swatch, eh? :::grin:::

Hi Caren - no wind & dust this time - just rain, rain, rain....every day was a baaaaad hair day for me!

Thanks Lisa! The situation sucks but you just have to muddle through. Definitely a "be nice to Bron" week around here!

Robbyn - looking forward to "Monk" honestly helped me get through it. It helps to have fun, little things in life to get your mind off the nasty, big things. Sigh.

Marie & Natalie - a big YES! to yarn therapy. I'm so looking forward to vegging & knitting in front of the TV tonight. :) Thanks for your good wishes too.
