I'm doing a little better

Well, I went a long time between posts last time, so this time I am trying to make up for it.  I have had lots going on (even though it has only been a few days).  Remember that scarf swap scarf I made?  Well, the night before the recipient got it, I had a strange dream....I will not go into all of the dream but at the end of the dream I was eating cheesecake with 3 of the ladies from LSSK.  I did tell the LSSK list all about the dream and of course they probably all think I am a quack.....well, this past weekend was the end of my area's yarn crawl and guess what?  Yup, my 3 cheesecake buddies came to SA and we went to have lunch. We had a great time!!!  Thank you ladies for coming to see me!  The pictures are not the greatest, but I think that is because the wall was a pretty bright yellow, so it washed us out a bit.

Then......Jaime got a new dog....yup, can you believe it?  She is super cute (I know why he fell in love with her).  He named her Brandy...I am not sure if he is spelling it Brandy or Brandi?  Isn't she cute!

Then.....the surprises continue, I got my scarf from the lady who knitted for me.  Her name is Joyce and she made me a beautiful cowl.  It is made out of Berroco Maya yarn (85% Pima Cotton, 15% Baby Alpaca) and OH SO SOFT!  In colorway 5629, it is a nice terra cotta orange and I love it!  The pattern is called The Purl Ridge Scarf by Stephen West.  She also included in the box some (orange) Mini Knit Klips, Garment Knit Labels, and Long Circular Stitch Holder.....I LOVE IT ALL!!  I am one lucky girl.  I am even wearing it today to work!

Lastly, I finished the Cowl I was knitting with my bonus yarn from The Loopy Ewe for Camp Loopy.  The pattern is Downtown Cowl and it looks awesome with this yarn.  I am entering this in the MuststashPodcast Rhinebeck or Bust KAL....I hope I win something!

For now...that is all that I have.  I need to get a moving on my Nuvem.  I am a bit behind on my gram count because I finished the cowl.  I hope to be on the ruffle this time next week!

Happy Happy Happy knitting everyone!!!


  1. I love reading your blog. I have not commented before, but I always get a kick out of reading it. And I did not know M&Ms knew how to knit or do anything yarny. Keep it up. You know if you just sent out the header and the first 100 words or so, then I would have to click on the link and read the entire article I might make more comments. That is how many bloggers do it and I have to go to the article to read after the teaser line. Miss you.


    1. Ruby, thanks for keeping on top of me about the blog. I really need to figure out how to send out emails when a post a new blog and how to do it like you say to.....with just the first few words to get ppl interested!
