Sleeve number two is moving along like a snail!

Sleeve number two is progressing slowly due to distractions in other areas. It is now about a quarter done. I have been helping another person work this pattern and she is having problems. I hope she doesn't quit because it is nice when worked up.

It's Saturday before school starts up around here again. The stores are jammed full of people trying to get things together, excited kids, frustrated drivers looking for parking spaces, plus all the usual weekend rushing is happening. I ran some errands and could not wait to get home.

I picked up some new glass for a project not even selected or thought out in my head. All I know was it looked too pretty to pass up. Not a problem -- just tuck it into the stash for now.

I also went to the new LYS in my area. I managed to restrain myself from buying anything, but that was not easy to do. I saw a really nice mohair yarn by Artful Yarns that has what appears to be seed beading or ribbon woven through it. There was a sample worked up and I fell in love with it. It's on my list for future purchase once my yarn stash goes down. I even have a pattern in mind for it.

Now, it's time to kick back and relax a bit before making supper.
