Kid free and last days of summer!

Many of you know that I am a mom of four...yes I am that crazy, but I love my bunch! My girls are going in to 5th and 6th grade this year and you will see more of them at the shop because I homeschool them through Logos Charter School. My toddlers are 4 and 2...well the threenager is almost 4. His bday is next week and he is thrilled! He wants a dinosaur cake because EVERYTHING is dinosaurs right now. Both boys are starting preschool at Lil Rascals located in my business park! Very convenient for me. 

Well, I am soaking up some much needed kid free time this week before school is upon us! My wonderful mama has all four at her house until Saturday. So far I've had two blissful mornings without being jumped on my toddlers to wake me up. 

I'm finding time to make progress on my projects. Things are picking up at the shop and with the anticipation of cooler fall weather, I am eager for September then October to come all wrapped up in pumpkin spice goodness. 

What are your end of summer plans? Do you have fall knitting or crocheting ideas floating in your head? Are you already thinking of the Holidays and gift projects? 

Road trips and squishy yarn

For the past week I have been traveling up and down the Pacific Northwest! With my husband and toddlers in toe. The girls tagged along as far as my in-laws house and they are doing their own fun thing next week. 

Other than seeing family and friends along the way our path has been paved with yarn shops. I made it a goal to see as many Slow Yarn Crawl shops as I could and not spend $40 in each shop...well it seems that one of those was a more realistic goal than the other...LOL.

The trip has been a success. I have met wonderful shop owners and yarn enthusiasts. There are so many ideas spiraling around in my head for things to do, lines to bring in, and all the day dreaming I could possible do with SethanyKnits! 

I have missed seeing my wonderful friends back home. I will be back on Monday!
