Today my new dentist was a filling in a wisdom tooth of all places. At one point Dr. Howard says: 'The decay goes 4 feet below the gum line!". While I am lying there with things in my mouth I am wondering, while I am here what else could I be doing? So I wrote up my blog...in my head. At least it's distracting me. As they poke and prod I am thinking of things to write down. Dr. Howard keeps asking if I am okay and because of the 3 vials of freezing he's injected into my mouth I only feel pressure. Then he asks me to bite down and I do but he didn't remove his finger and I bite him! The whole process is pretty pain free and the staff are very patient with me.
That was my morning. Today I will just take things easy in the shop, finish the hat and scarf I started with some very nice yarn and drink very slowly.

Now to find some room for this interesting mixture of things. We also stopped into Ikea to find more storage ideas for a more organised shop. (spent actually less than $50, I don't know how I managed that!)
Tomorrow is Remembrance day and I will be at the Cenotaph from 10:30 to 11:30.

Boxes from Westminster Fibers with the new Regia Hand paint sock yarn arrived. Berroco shipped a back order of Blackstone Tweed and Vintage Wool. Some new yarn from Classic Elite came in another carton. Then a package from a pattern supplier arrived. Diamond Yarn shipped a selection of Yarns from Sirdar. Yup ordered more Snowball! (I've got Red now). I also unpacked the order of notions and buttons I ordered last week!
To add to the chaos, I unloaded the car from a little side trip I took to Estelle Yarns and 'The Girl' sent a package of some hand painted gift cards and some lovely stitch markers. She said she was in a crafty mood, very pretty.
A quick phone call and recruits are coming to help me sort out this mess!
So if you haven't been into the shop since Saturday you will find a lot of new things!
