Wow, what a whirlwind weekend!  Evnetually I will get the pictures off of the camera and give you a recap, but for now just know that Indie Emporium was fan-freaking-tastic!  By the end my feet were so sore and I was soo tired, but I wouldn't have traded it for anything.  I got to hang out with some of the best people and I got to see my new product model hit the runway for one of the designers.  Like I said, it was great!

Sunday I barely moved.  I had lofty goals of laundry and cleaning and getting all the show stuff I dumped out of the car organized but none of that really happened.  What did happen was lunch with my mom and sister, visiting some old friends of the family, laziness on the couch and puppy time.  I wish I'd gotten up off the sofa earlier and gone to bed because monday it was back to the grind and back to the craziness.  My weeks have been so booked this fall!  In a good way, but I am in a perpetual state of tired right now because of it.  Like last night when I meant to do all the dishes, clean the kitchen and start on the living room.  I got home so late, what did I do?  I only did the dishes and then had some puppy time.

I haven't been completely neglecting things on the SomerKnits front though.  First, I have been trying to pick out the perfect sleep sack pattern to knit for Baby E.  I have 5 skeins of Berrocco Jasper that told me it needs to be a sleep sack.  I will share the pattern I choose just as soon as I am sure of which one it will be.  Maybe I will even share the runners up.  Next I have been working on felted wool dryer balls.  I have been thinking about making some for a long time now and I just never seem to get around to it, but thanks to a little push this past weekend I am totally moving forward on it.  I have 8 done so far, I will have to get them photographed so I can share with you.  I am still working on figuring out materials versus time in order to set a price point, but I really think these will be a fun addition to my shop.  For those who don't know what felted wool dryers balls are for, you put them in the dryer instead of dryer sheets and they prevent static and decrease drying time.  They are totally earth friendly and a lot quieter than tennis balls (which is what some people use).  My felted wool dryer balls and wool all the way through to the core, so there is no hard filler inside.  I can't wait to share them with you.  Tiredness has prevented me from monkeying with the camera the last few nights.

Maybe by the time I get through this week and this weekend I will have actually recovered.  Oh wait, I think I'm too busy for that.

Thank you again for booth sitting for me! You have no idea how much I appreciate it.

I'm excited to see the dryer balls and will have to get one from you when you've got them ready. I've been wanting one of those for a while. :)
