What a welcome back!!!!!

Last week, Ken and I quietly snuck off on a Mexican Cruise....

It was wonderful to get to wear shorts and be in the sunshine and warm weather even if it was for a few days. We missed snow and massive flooding in our area while we are gone. Gotta tell ya, hearing only tidbits about the devistation going on at home and not being able to call to make sure everything was OK was difficult. We were so glad to come home and have our house intact and all our critters safe and healthy!

At the end of the cruise I turned on my phone got the happy beep beep beep of reception when we got back to the US. There was a message waiting for me from a very excited knitting friend....her message was what many of you already know and have already heard...... that 'Yarn Harlot used your yarn and LOVES IT'! she went on to say that she wrote about it on her blog and that my website was completely wiped out of stock!!!
Needless to say, things have been a little busy since I returned a couple days ago...the runs to the post office are pretty big loads of packages, I am done to the bare bones of yarn on the shelf and my to do list has grown a mile!!! I see lots and lots and lots of batches of yarn in my future!!! :)
For those of you who have newly discovered Duet Sock Yarns I would like to say HELLO and welcome to the wonderful world of being a 'Lucky Lurker'. A Lucky Lurker is a knitter who happens to be able to grab up the Duet Sock Yarns before they sell out.

To all my current Lucky Lurkers, thank you for your support, excitement and e-mails about the Yarn Harlot posting!!!!!! And just to ease the mind of you Long Time Lucky Lurkers who have said you are a bit worried that your secret is out and you won't be able to get your hands on Duet Sock Yarn...please don't worry, I am going to keep making the yarn, I am going to keep posting the yarn and you will still be able to get your hands on the yarn, I promise!!! :)

I will post more about our trip (and the fact that I still feel like the boat is still rocking-can you take draminine when you are on land to prevent sea sickness?) and some pictures soon! For now, I have lots and lots of packages to get to the post office!!!!

Oh congrats on the Yarn Harlot mention. I hope it brings even more and more business your way!

The little getaway sounded so nice.

Welcome back!

And yes, you can take dramamine on dry land...I always have to after I've been on a boat. It takes me a week or so to get re-acclimated! It is pretty embarrassing though to be walking down a hallway in your own house and to get seasick!

Your trips sounds like it was fantastic. I could use something like that right about now.

I found Duet from the Harlot's mention and The Loopy Ewe. Any chance we'll see Chocolate Crunch ever again?
