Hi Everyone!!! I hope everyone had a nice holiday. I know I did. The Fi had me running around with him and a buddy of his that was in town. I had loads of fun and ate at a few really good privately owned restaurants. What more could a girl ask for.
First of all I want to thank all of you for the lovely comments you have left me. I haven't gotten around to emailing everyone back, but I wanted to say thank you anyway. I haven't blogged about anything lately, because I've been a little busy. 2 Thursdays ago I received 2 nice surprises in my email. I finally received my invitation to RAVELRY. Yeah!!!!!!!. If you haven't signed up yet, you need to. The site is amazing. There is so much that I need to do to get fully functional on that site. I love it!!!! I'm hoping to start some time this weekend, depending on how much work I get done on my other surprise I received, which actually came in the mail last Monday.
My second surprise was an email from Knit Picks letting me know that I was excepted as a sample knitter for them. I received my package as I said before (The yarns are beautiful and nice to work with!!) in the mail on Monday, and it's due back by August 9th. I have casted on and I'm moving along nicely. I don't have a sneak peak for you yet, but I know it's for the October Issue. Hopefully I'll have a little taste for you soon. This also means that yes, all my other knitting has stopped temporarily while I'm working on this. I'm pretty excited, and you never know what else can happen in the future.
I did start working on the Shaped Lace Tee from Knitting Lingerie Style. I have the back done, and I casted on for the front. I don't have any pictures yet, but it looks great, and it's a quick knit. I can't wait to finish it, as I would like to wear it for my father's birthday next month.
Anyway, that it for now, I'll try to have pics up real soon. I did decide to go with buttons for the baby hoodie I'm working on. I found these adorable wooden baseball buttons. I'll be sewing those on this week and handing it over to it's proud new owner hopefully by the end of the weekend.
