I was able to finish her baby blanket just in time....it is pretty bright:
I forgot to mention in my last post from Monday that I got some gift baskets while I was at WHIBIB in Buda....there was a benefit for Kerri, she worked at Happy Ewe in Jonestown and passed away April 26th. My bids won for 3 baskets at the silent auction. A wine basket, a bath basket, and a sweater basket. I am planning on using these as prizes for a few KAL's with my SNB group....but it is tempting to keep them (or some of them) to myself!!! Actually, while at WHIBSIB, I started using the stitch markers from the sweater basket and I really like them, so there is at least one item that I am keeping.....LOL.
I also had two more surprises at WHIBSIB, Jamye gave me package of pasta salad to make...but not just any pasta salad.....LONGHORN Pasta Salad. I LOVE IT. I have not cooked it yet, but I cannot wait to....it will be yummy! Thank you Jamye!!
Joan, our matriarch of the group, made some tatted earrings in ORANGE! I love them so much, I wore them on Saturday....here is a picture of me wearing them. Thank you Joan!!!
Speaking of Joan, she has a lot of knitting machines, so I bugged her and asked her if I could come over to her house sometime and she could show me how to use my knitting machine.....She said yes, so that is in my near future (don't you just love how I invited myself over to her place?)! She is the greatest!!!
I think that is all for today.....A lot of the LSSK gals have been sending traffic to my blog and I thanked them for it...I told them how excited I was that a few people actually read my blog (thank you everyone!). One lady suggested that I post more often, so I am going to try to do that....I am afraid my life is just usually not that exciting, but it is full of knitting, so if nothing else, you get to journey with me as I knit!
Here is my cute picture that I will close with today. I found it on FB and it said something along the lines of "Just when I thought I had seen it all. Popeye knitting on the Subway". Well to that I say, "Knit on Popeye, Knit on!!!!"
