A lovely gift

Last December some our friends (or my in laws friends) gifted us with a dog. A pure bred German Shepherd that they could have charged us a pretty penny for but generously did not. I’m head over heals for this animal! I love her to pieces.

Today they dropped off three garbage bags full of yarn For me to use. Look at all of those purple yarn choices.

I’m curious if any of you have ever tried machine washing yarn in the skein? I’m thinking about putting a few in a laundry bag to test it out.

👍🏻 I also wanted to added that today was my kids first day of school! Yay for more creative time. I’m hoping to get on to a better blogging routine that includes better participation on all of your blogs. My goal for tomorrow is to catch up on all of those old posts. Wow, this summer was the hardest yet as a parent. Every single day was filled with sibling rivalry and sass filled attitude toward me. This momma needed a break!
