Happy Columbus Day!

Happy Monday everyone....I hope you are having a fabulous Columbus Day!  I am just thankful that Columbus has his own day that gives me a day off :)

So, I have a fabulous friend that dies some gorgeous yarn.....she also recently designed a pattern to go with her fabulous yarn and she sews stuff she put together a kit for the local Yarn Crawl.  Her yarn is called Guilty Treasures....her FB page is here....I love this kit....another friend knit it as a test knit and it is gorgeous!  The pattern is Pescalli's Diamonds.

Here it is knit up (Copyright to Amy McFadden):

Another fabulous and very generous friend, Ruby, went to Stitches Texas a few weeks ago....she saw a knitting kit at the Stephen Be booth and just knew it was MY color....perfect Longhorn she got a kit for me and Darlene (she knows how much we love to knit the same thing together).....Ruby, we cannot thank you enough....we love our new kits!!  Here is a pic of me and Darlene with our new yarn!!  The yarn is Three Irish Girls.  THANK YOU RUBY! Muah!

Speaking of 'Steven Be', the Stephen West Mystery KAL started this past Friday.....I have not decided if I am going to do it or not ( I am actually waiting to see if Darlene wants to do it....again, because we love knitting the same thing together).....Here is all the Hedgehog yarn I have purchased lately.  I love some of these neutrals so much, I ordered some more of them recently (and maybe some more Film Noir (far right) because it is my favorite).  Anyway, we are going to do something from Stephen West for the Bags By Awesome Grannie ravelry group 4th qtr KAL...and I will use some of this yarn....just not sure which ones yet:

Oh....and it is Yarn Crawl right now here in SA....and my roommate, Carol, has been on the crawl and also helping out at Inskein Yarns....she got me the mos awesome sock blank from Brazen Stitchery....thank you Carol!

She also got this gorgeous fall color skein of self striping yarn...she does not like to knit socks and she also has a large foot (13 E)...but I told her I would knit her some socks with this is too pretty not to keep some feet warm!

Last week I told you I was going car shopping with Paige.....well, she bought a car!  She loves it.  2015 Jeep Patriot Altitude...they even put a bow on it for her.

Now for the knitting.....I do not have much....I have only knit on my Celestarium and my October socks.

Here is my Celestarium.....just a few more rows in Chart F:

Here are my Halloween Moon heel done and one that is ready to be worked....then just 2 legs :)

That is it....Antonio's Halloween costume came in so he wanted to try it on....BEWARE...You might get scared:

He also wanted to play with some of my scrap yarn....Paige came over and saw this and almost had a heart attack because she did not know he had permission to do this....LOL!

I leave you with:

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
