A new blog! I so much enjoyed my blog when I owned my yarn shop, that I decided to continue with my own blog here in non-shop-ownership life. I had such a hard time deciding what to name the blog. At this point, I don't have a major thing defining my life (such as a yarn shop) and in fact, I'm a little bit in limbo. So, I decided to just name it Lizy Tish which is the nickname my mom had for me when I was little. She also called me Punkin Pie (actually pronounced "pah", as you might say in the south) but that just seemed silly. Lizy Tish certainly isn't silly.
There will still be lots of knitting stuff since I just love it and since I'll be teaching classes at the shop. But, there will also be other things like cooking, baking, books, drag racing (yes, drag racing, but not by me.....yet) and miscellaneous other things that I get myself into. Oh, and finding a job. Blech.
But first was Labor Day weekend and the trip Paul and I took to Old Forge, New York to the Old Forge Hardware store. (Forgot to take a picture of it - gotta get back in the i-have-a-blog-so-i-need-to-take-a-picture-of-everything-mode) What a great place that has everything, including a little yarn shop inside!
And down the street from there was this yarn shop:
And as we were driving out of town, we saw this:
Old Forge is a little more than 2 hours north of here and there were signs of fall already:
Then, it was Sunday. And if it's Sunday of Labor Day weekend, it's MUSCLEPALOOZA at Lebanon Valley Dragway! I was ready, with my team shirt:
I was also ready with my knitting, which fit nicely in my comfy chair with my cold beverage at hand:
Here is Rob's dad Ray's chair, which I thought was pretty neat since it has a little table on one side and a cooler on the other. And it all folds up nice and neat!:
Then is was racing time. Here is Paul getting ready (on the right):
And going down the track:
Look what Rob has to do to get his car off his trailer:
Then there was a rain delay:
Lots of knitting getting done, but that will be in the next post....
