Jenning Streets Yarns again!

Ok, Ok...I went Jenning Streets Yarns the other day. I couldn't help it. I really love the shop, the prices are very reasonable and Linda is just so gosh darn friendly! I remembered some Navajo Yarn there and have this Sante Fe Ruana pattern I think would be fantastic together. Sooo, here the start...yes, another project. The Navajo yarn is Churro. I really love the feel of it. It also has a great sheen. Can you believe only $8.96 for 190 yds? It's hand spun, hand dyed, and knits like a dream. If your ever in Fort Worth, you just have to visit Linda. She's awesome. She did, as always, bent over backwards to help me my selection, laying all the different colors out for me to compare, and helped me decide on what colors would look good together. (The photo colors are a bit distorted.) She's never pushy, just helpful. She even happily wound every skein without my asking, then wrapped my purchase carefully in tissue. It really impresses me that she is friendly to my rambunctious 18 month old grandson. While we don't let him throw yarn balls around, he's still quite loud and full of life. She amused him with peekaboo as she happily wound my yarn. He really likes her. You know, my dad always told me that if a baby likes someone, they're usually pretty good people.
Anyway, the Sweet Dreams Throw continues to grow. I have the first of five rows well on its way, about 3 feet long. It's so soft, Aidan loves to pet it. I have a feeling the little guy is going to rob me of it when it's done. He loves soft cuddly things. Anyway, I'm liking the Fibonacci Number Twist. I decided on combinations totaling 34, which can be 34. 13,21. 13,8,13. for the
color changes. That's clear as mud, right. I'll put it in more detail after I finish. I can see it in my head, and I think it will be exactly as I imagine. (Yes, I'm different...always have been.) The throw is my mindless knitting thing. It goes with me when I go out and know I'll have somewhere to wait. It parks beside me when I'm trying to knit and watch tv. I'm alternating between the 3 projects so I work on all projects every week. Mostly on my nights off. It's nearly 4:30 am, and I am wide awake! (Forever stuck on night shift!) I'm still working on the Mohair shawl as well. I figure to give it a serious workout tommorrow night if I don't get called in.
Went to Joe's Crab Shack today with 2 of my girls. The bucket of crab actually looks like what they advertise on TV. It was really yummy. We also got to watch them dance to Carwash. Dinner and a show...
