Hello from the weekend!

I hope you've had a relaxing Labor Day weekend. My puppy girl Lola certainly did! How can you sleep like that?? I have no idea, but she did. In fact we all napped our fair share over the last three days and it was wonderful and just what we needed.

We had sunshine and perfect beach weather on Saturday and Sunday but today was a little different. There were thunderstorms when we woke up and then spotty rain the rest of the day ending with this amazing rainbow right at sunset.

So now it's nighttime and we're winding down before a busy work week at Ewe Ewe Yarns. I'm getting started on a new pair of Fair Isle socks just in time for fall and I think they're so cute! Wooly Worsted Washable is perfect for sock since it's warm, soft and washable!

I hope you had a great holiday weekend and feel refreshed and relaxed. Fall is just around the corner so dust off those needles and get knitting! :)
