Some good news is that I got lots of knitting done! I finished the Hojas y Bayas shawl, and my Hiya Hiya Waves Scarf (I still need to block the scarf).....
Remember the whole Dr. Who scarf commission? Well, I ordered a Dr Who Scarf kit from a LYS in Austin so I can make the scarf for my friend's son. When I got the kit, I found out it was kind of a 1/2 kit...it makes a 12 foot scarf, but 1/2 the width...it says this kit is an 'Austin Friendly' kit that is lighter for the weather and to cast on 32 stitches but if you want the full scarf, cast on 64 and buy two kits....I was a little upset with the yarn shop for not being more forthcoming about this little bit of information, but after a little discussion here and there, she will let me return the kit and no harm no foul...I will order the yarn elsewhere, it will just take a little longer to get to me. No rush.....I am still working on the Miss Babs Knitting Tour scarf called Silver Fern, I have some socks on the needles for a Hiya Hiya KAL and my second installment of the Strickmich!Club should be here this week or next.... I wanted to share a picture of a Dr. Who Scarves so in case you are clueless like me.....you can see how big they are.....this is actually my friend dressed as Twi'lek from Star Wars standing with a friend of hers...he is wearing the dr who scarf....this is the 4th cosplay Dr. Who Scarf.....
My socks and Miss Babs Scarf are pretty much at the same place as last week so I do not have any more pictures of them.....But I won something! This past weekend at SNB, it was also Inskein Yarn's 1 year anniversary celebration....I bought some raffle tickets and WON! Look at this yarn awesomeness! Thank you Inskein Yarns for the fabulous prize and congrats on one year!!!!
I also have a small stash enhancement....I am a member of the Barking Dogs Yarn club and I get 6 surprise skeins of sock yarn every year....here is my April yarn...it is called Butter and it is awesome!!!
One blurb I wanted to put in to tease all is I will have big news soon...it has to do with my best friend Darlene!
Well, that is about all I have....It has been a crazy week and I am sure I have forgotten something, but hopefully I remember by next week. I leave you with my favorite 'sign'....for those of you who know who Jeff Foxworthy is, he did this comedian line with "Here's your sign!"....after my day of spraying my room wtih bleach...a friend of mine sent me this via facebook....it is perfect....so, I say to you:
Here's your sign! (in perfect Jeff Foxworthy tone)
Happy Happy Happy knitting everyone!
