Home again, home again, jiggety jig

Am I ever glad to be back home! I had a fantabulous NPL convention, but nine days away from my darling cats and my very ownest computer and everything else that's swell about Brooklyn was a bit much.

Went to the gym today after too much of a hiatus (although I did walk quite a lot in the natural course of things while we were away). Two miles on the treadmill and some random upper-body weight work.

Yarn from Chester Farms showed up while I was gone -- I am really looking forward to working up some shop samples out of their lovely stuff. The owner of the company, Francis Chester, lived in Brooklyn once upon a time! Now he's raising sheep in Virginia and he's tickled to know his yarn will be in the best of the boroughs.

I'll have to check out Chester's wool. I've recently moved to VA and he's selling it at quite a few shops which may or may not be close to me - I'm still figuring that part out! Sounds like you had a nice trip - I couldn't do 9 days away from my kids even though they make me nuts recently.
