I finally got around to taking a picture of the yarn I picked up this summer in NM. I visited the Fiesta Yarns outlet store and picked up a few goodies. The La Boheme on the left to make me a biased stole. The 2 on the bottom left are to make a scarf for my daughter and the 2 rayon boucle on the right to make 2 shoulder shawls.
My daughter needs a throw. Since she's a college student and has lots of kids hanging out, I didn't want her to have to worry about someone messing up a nice throw. We picked out Jiffy yarn by Lion Brand. I also bought some nice bright orange Red Heart to make my son a throw. I might pick out a coordinating color to go with it, break up the orange some.
Work should be calming down some soon. I officially have my promotion now, effective Sept. 4. I hope to have a replacement for my old position within the next month. I've been sick since Mon. a week ago. I think maybe the stress and long hours finally caught up with me. I've finally started to feel better, almost 2 weeks later. I'm looking forward to the weekend.
