Happy Valentine's Day!

Can you believe it is going to be Valentine's Day already tomorrow?  I hope you got your sweetie something special!!!

So most of you know that Darlene and I love to give presents to each other for birthday's and Christmas.....and we can hardly ever wait to give the present....I gave Darlene her birthday present early and she gave me mine early.....and I tell you, I got the most awesome present on the planet!  She gifted me the entire Leading Men Fiber Arts 2016 Year In Review Set....I LOVE every single one of these!  I cannot wait to use them.  I was not sure what I was going to make....but I have decided....I am going to make a Crochet Blanket with all of these and add some black and maybe gray in it....then I can wrap myself in this awesomeness whenever I want.  Thank you Darlene!  You are the Bestest!

Guess what I finished?  PAIGE'S SWEATER!  I even wore it to work one day before giving to her.

It is not as long as I thought it would be...but I loved it and so did Paige!

I worked a little on my secret project with my Kauni Yarn, and I worked on my Snowmelt MKAL.  I am liking how this is knitting up so is Clue 1 complete, and I am now behind on clue 2, but hope to catch up this week.

I know I share far too many of my sunrise pictures...but I wanted to share a view of what I see when I walk into my team's area in the can be very breath taking.

I got my 2016 Exclusive Colorway from DVD....I love it...I took a picture outside so you can see the great colors!

I got some Tea from a company called Harney & of my LSSK gals told me about it....So Billie Rae, if you are reading this, this is ALL YOUR FAULT....I put both of these together in my tea pot and it is just delicious!

I went to my parents on Saturday so Precious could spend some more time with Bella (their dog) and my dad surprised me and my mom with the most delicious lunch!  Lobster!  It was YUMMY (Antonio did not want to try it, but he was fascinated with their eyes....LOL!)!!!

Let's see....what else....Oh, I worked a little on my February Socks:

And my is getting really big and it is hard to photograph.  I did have a mess up in this...and had to frog about 7 or 8 rows...but it is back on track!

Well, that is all I worked on knitting wise.....I did clean my house to get ready for my visitor on Thursday.  Her name is Paulette and we met online on Ravelry, she was going to come visit last year but things did not work out and I had Carol living with me then.  So this year she called and we planned her visit around the Spring SAFR Retreat......yup, she will be going with me and Darlene to the Knitting Retreat....we are all so excited.

So there was lots of cleaning this past weekend.....Oh and playing with Antonio:

 Well, that is all I have....I am going to leave you with picture overload of Paige's sweater (and a couple of Precious)....The first picture is the picture that Paige sent me and the picture I tried to copy to make the sweater....the rest are of Paige of course!


 I have the knitting retreat this coming weekend so be prepared for my ooohing and ahhhing over that!

Have a great week everyone!  Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
