Can't wait for a return to normalcy

As I was packing up all of my craft supplies and yarn (sniff, sniff), I realized how much I really do miss crafting. The kiddos and I usually pull out my Big Kick or my Xyron PCS, the papers, decorative scissors, and when brave, the markers - and create funky things. Both of my kids LOVE art and crafting. I can't wait until I will again have a craft room to store all of my stuff. While running errands this past weekend, I popped in The Pink Tomato and peaked at all of their precious papers! I am so jealous of all of the papercrafters that bought things from their grand opening sale. Someday, when I actually have some time and of course, some money - I plan to venture back there when I am in town. What a cute store!

I also popped in on my fave LYS, Calla Lily to see what Donna's been up to. I did by 4 skeins of yarn for some fall projects I have in que. The kiddos and I want to make some pumpkins. I'm going to help them create paper mache pumpkins and perhaps some felt pumpkins. I am going to participate in a KAL with my group (I'm the moderator), 'Moving Beyond Rectangles' on Ravelry in which we knit pumpkins. I've never knit in the round before (aside from ML socks), so the use of DPNs is new to me. More on that later.

Anywho.. gotta run, dumplings. The children are stirring and leaving them to their own devices for more than say, 1 minute, is a bad idea. A very bad idea.

I will post the yarn I bought at Calla Lily's when I get a chance. I left the yarn back home in OH as not to tempt me to start another project until my socks and bag are complete! Oh, and the Ravelympics are over.. devil thy name is Ravelry.
