I mean, yarn that knows your name isn't a stranger and by following that logic it must be my friend and friends are always welcome to come home with me. FA doesn't name their colourways and I don't quite know what to call it. Pistachio in the Sky? Spring Blend? I'll think of something. (Yes, I played with PhotoShop. I don't have time to do mess with every pic, so maybe I'll have to give Kyle some work to do. It's cool though!)

I decided that the reddish Manos would be a wonderful background for it. I'm imaging/planning a top-down circular (I know, but I do it when I have to) with a fairisle pattern in the yoke and the edges. It's going to be wonderful!!!

She was a bit disappointed that it wasn't knee-deep, but she set to shoveling with the enthusiasm that only a 9 year old can exhibit! She also asked if she could clean off the van. Like she has to ask! I let her
