Hello everyone!  How was your weekend?  Mine was good, but bery busy.  I had both my grandkids during the day Sunday....and I am pooped.  I need a weekend from my

Jaime and I went to the deer lease (to drop off RV and get stuff ready for deer season) on Friday night, came back Saturday and was able to stop at The Tinsmith's Wife.  I found some yarn that my friend, Darlene, had been searching for.  It is by string theory and it is called inertia.  It is made by scientists and stripes perfectly. (the symbol for string theory is very cute).  It is in a green and white.  Darlene saw a friend of ours making the Jaywalker socks with this exact yarn during WWKIP day and she has been looking for the yarn ever since.

I got a couple goodies this weekend from an aunt that passed last month.  Of course I would much prefer my aunt over the goodies, but I wanted to share because it has a yarn story to it.  My aunt Patti and Dottie (Dottie passed away) were in the 1960 Rome Summer Olympics in Rome for synchronized swimming.  Their mother (I called her Granny Goose) was a big knitter, but I did not know that till after I took up knitting and Granny had already passed.  Anyway, Dottie had some yarn from Granny Goose tucked away in her closet, so Aunt Patti gave it to me.  It is Pattons Fuzzy Wuzzy Angora (P&B) made in Great Britain by Patons and Baldwins Limited.  I do not know how many yards each skein is, but it is SOFT!  Angora can be fuzzy when knitting with it (Celeste's red bow sweater had 10% angora) but I am still looking forward to using it.  It is "Lemon" shade 5504.  55% angora and 45% wool.  I have about 8-10 skeins of it.  Then, Aunt Dottie also gave me a cute gucci purse (my whole family knows what a purse ho I am)....I think it is so different and cute, I just had to share!

Oh, and Celeste's sweater is finished and it FIT her!!!!  I have pics of the finished sweater, but the pics with her modeling it, are still stuck in camera :(

I have been working on Nuvem, a pom pom blanket for Paige and a scarf for is a pic of the scarf for Paige.

Happy Monday everyone!!!!!
