Crazy Carrie Checking In!

Hey everyone!  I have felt a little out of control lately and it feels like Crazy Carrie is taking over.....I hope she leaves soon.

First, my friend Elizabeth made an amazing shawl called Julie's Wrap by Joji Locatelli and I had to buy the exact same yarn....except I could not find it in sock yarn, so I had to get MCN (poor me)!

 The above pictures are Elizabeth's shawl.....below is the pic from the website where I ordered the yarn.

Then the place where I ordered the yarn from only had 3 skeins instead of 4....so I got completely different yarn....Madtosh sock yarn in the Antique Moonstone colorway.  It is more blue than I thought it would be, but I am really kinda digging it and Paige said it will look great!

Second..... my friend Jennifer finished knitting 1/2 my nuvem for me...and by 1/2, I mean she knit an entire 300 gram Wollmeise skein.

 So I got cake number 2 ready and attached that sucker

I even took the beast to golf with Antonio

Third, I also ordered the Jimmy Beans Hedgehog Fibers Blanket Club....this is all Darlene and Rosanna's fault...they are both doing it too.

Fourth (and I think Lastly), I decided to tackle my yarn room.....it is a disaster!  Here is my before picture.....I am not done so you will have to wait a while for my after picture!

Jaime and I had a nice valentine's dinner out.....I got an amazing Ribeye steak at Longhorn (yes, I gained a pound, but I think it might have been worth it....Ill go longer on the treadmill today).  He even brought me a single rose....

Paige posted some great pics with her and Kody....with the quote:

"To love is nothing.
To be loved is something.
But to love and be loved, that's everything"

After golf my daddy took me to get some new running shoes for my birthday....I love them!

Oh, and I worked on my Vortex Sweater....I cannot wait to divide for sleeves on this!

Well, that is all I have......have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
