I did get to sit in the Tucson desert warmth and knit by my hotel's pool. For half an hour, I felt like I was on vacation! I came thisclose to finishing one of the three projects I carried with me. Mostly I knit in bed at night until I fell asleep. Now that I am home, it is time to get all the new merchandise out in the shop. Buttons, pearl cotton, wool, yarn and more - galore !
