Monday, July 21, 2014!!!!!!

Happy Monday everyone.....I have just one more day till I see Darlene!  She comes back to work tomorrow and I am super excited!  I have so much to tell her and show her.  She has been on vacation since July 4th, so that means I have not seen her since July about withdrawals!

While she has been gone, we have another friend that knits with us and her name is Barbara.  Barbara also went on vacation recently and she got me the cutest wine glass and a bottle of wine.  She also knows that I have been looking for the Copa wine bottles ever since I saw an episode of Shark Tank where this guy was on when she went to Rockport, she was able to find them and picked me up a moscato bottle.  Thank you Barbara!!!  Isn't this cup cute?

I got a few yarn enhancements.....I have pictures of the yarn I told you that I ordered for some more socks...Paige likes the lighter color, but I am not starting her socks till I finish at least one more placemat for her (moving day is this coming Saturday...yikes!!)

My 'Box of Fun' from The Loopy Ewe came in and I have my yarn for Project 3 for Camp Loopy...I will be making Clapotis.......

I made Pikes Peak with this order and got some cute buttons to put on my Bags By Awesome Grannie project bags...they say things like "Shawl", "Socks", "Hat" and then in order to make my order ship for free, I got some heel soak (I love this stuff) and a skein of Madeline Tosh Sock yarn in the Duchess Colorway...I know I am going to want to make more Stephen West Shawls (once I knit down some other things) and this color has always called my name, so I went ahead and snagged a skein.....look at the close is awesome!

Do you remember those little sandals I crocheted for a friend?  Well, I took them to her and they are a tad large, but she will grow into them!

This past week there was one day that Paige asked me to take Antonio to daycare for her because she had a really early morning has been a while since I have had to take him, but we had fun in the car.....

and then Celeste came by to visit Oma......I missed her soooo much, it has been a while since I have seen her because I have been busy and her mom has been I snapped up a picture of Paige and Celeste together (Celeste's hair is sooooo long it s almost to her buttox!)

Oh......and I saved the best knitting news for last.....I FINISHED MY BAY OF FUNDY SCARF for Camp Loopy #2....Yahoo!  I attached my 3rd skein last Tuesday (as I had hoped for) and I attached my 4th Skein on Friday must have really wanted to be done with this one.  It was 71 inches x 21 1/2 inches blocked out (I added two more repeats to it to make it wider).  It fits me very, very, very well, but today is my sister's 44th birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANICE!!) this one might (I said might) go to her...I have not decided yet....I may make her something else..... that Camp Loopy #2 is done and I have about 10 days till the next project starts....I am going to work on Paige's placemats (I do not have a picture to share), possibly start my Hitofude Cardigan with a provisional crochet chain cast on (I am not looking forward to that) and I am going to try to finish these socks (one heel is turned)...these are tour de sock socks...the last tour de sock pattern came out this past Saturday but I am sitting it out.  It has color work and I am not fond of it.  So, if I finish these socks, I will have finished 3 of the 6 tour de sock socks....but none of them in time :(  Next year I think I will still pay the money to benefit Doctors without borders, but I will just be a cheerleader!

I found a picture of this swift lamp online somewhere (facebook or maybe instagram)....I want one of these!

That is all I have.....I hope everyone has a great week!!!  Happy Happy Happy knitting!!!
