Paints and Zippers

The trip to Carlsbad was great. Did alot of knitting on the plane. From Portand to San Diego and back we were able to upgrade in to First Class. Knitting in First Class!!! Now you can hardly beat that! Took only 1 project down, the Double Exposure Jacket in Teal. Since I was working on the sleeves, most of the project was left at home. Oh, yea, I guess I did throw in an extra project into the suitcase, just in case. Since I didn't do so much while visiting, progress was slow. I've come to the conclusion that I am just not a fast knitter.

Finally found some zippers! So I ordered 4 colors and the color card. These zippers come in 600 colors (not all on the same zipper). So I've no reason to complain I can't find the right color. These are large tooth plastic zippers, separating zippers. Great for coats and bags. But actually those double-headed end-to-end zippers are better for bags, but they are harder to find.

New into the store is Cascade's Paints. Since I stock all the colors of Cascade 220 and Pastaza, I brought in all of the Paints for those 2 lines. These are hand dyed colors.

Cherry Berry is my favorite. I love red. I'll have to do another coat. But the last 2 colors are very dark, yet sexy. I'd love to do a jacket for hubby out of one of them.

Well shipping for today was just picked up and my friend of 20 years is here checking out the zipper colors, so I'll sign off for a while!
