Back to normal

Well, things are getting back to what passes for normal around here. The challenges with the Green Line took more out of me than I'd realized. If nothing else, it feels good to have the decision made and put behind me. So now we're back to business as usual.

It feels good to dye yarn every day again. I go through phases where running the business end of Lorna's Laces sucks up so much time that I don't dye as much as I like. Sitting at the computer isn't nearly as satisfying as getting my hands dirty. There's something deeply rewarding about being able to look out at a sea of yarn hanging to dry and know I made all of that prettiness.

Today is Kylie's birthday. Becca brought gluten-free peanut butter cookies that rocked. They couldn't be any simpler to make:
1 c peanut butter
1/2 c white sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 egg
Bake at 350 for 7 minutes.

Yummy!!

Kylie got the greatest gloves for her birthday from a woman who used to work here, Diana Sudyka. Along with doing things like crocheting gorgeous gloves, Diana is an artist who does much of her work in silkscreens. Her stuff is amazing.

Speaking of amazing, the pattern for the gloves comes from etsy. The seller is Handmade Cashmere Treats Adventures of......Jessica Rose. She has some really pretty things.

The dye on Stef's arm in the gloves picture looks like a really awful bruise! Should I be on the lookout for signs of an abusive work environment??
