Yay!!!! I'm so happy! I figured out how to use pictures on the computer that I use most. The other computer was not allowing me to post pics lately! Humpf!!

I have to appologize to my secret pal! I ate the chocolate she gave me and I forgot to take a picture of Evelyn Clark's Butterfly Garden Shawl pattern. I love eveyln Clark!! I have put into use many of the things she sent to me already! This was part of my packed box of goodies! So much thought put into it. I love every
bit of it!

Now this is a picture of my Elizabeth Cardi on me Elizabeth! I love Rowan patterns. Everytime I make one it fits beautifully(except of the time I subbed an inappropriate yarn-of course it fit beautifully before I washed it!).

This is a Charlotte made out of my Friend Liz's handspun she gifted me!

This is my latest handspun out of her roving. She has an Etsy shop called Chocolate Princess. Nayy just a happy customer and friend!

Too Busy

I'm sorry I didn't post pics. This week wound up to be too busy. My Secret Pal sent me the most wonderful box. I'm happy to say the chocolate is all gone so the pictures of that won't tempt you at all. I already would the beautiful lace yarn too! I will take pictures next week. It should be a quieter week. I had to take kids to the doctors ,dentists and camp all week. One had poison ivy the other an ear infection. Poor guys!

I feel bad...

I feel very bad that I haven't posted. It's not like I haven't knit. I just don't have the energy to deal with camera issues while the kids are around. I will try next week with the camera. They have day camp. I get two free hours a day for 5 days;-)
I finished the Elizabeth Cardi from Rowan, well finished except for the button band I'm avoiding like the plague. I also knit practically a whole sock in a week but then my fil tried it on and wanted to know if I could make the ribbing tighter. Pooey back to the frog pond. I think I have to switch to two circs. As much as I LOVE my 5" dps I think they are too hard on my hands now. After the one sock in a week fiasco My arm hurt and it took a week of practically no knitting to get it back. I ordered some kni picks 16" circs 1 1/2's.
The back of my Katherine Hepburn Cardi is almost finished! Unfortunately the ms3 has caught my attention big time. I'm doing at least two stoles. One in Aegean blue zephry(it was in my stash) with crystal soft edged triangular seed beads size 8 in a clear aurora borealis finish and I'm waiting for indigo zephyr for some bronze beads I picked up. They were the most expensive beads but I had to have them. I'm hoping to have enough beads and yarn left over to make a bag to match the shawl.
Mina's little Debbie bliss cardi is stalled but at an advanced point which means it is likely I will finish it at a later date. Probably in the fall. I love picking up half finished items because it seems like I only have to knit half a sweater and it is an fo. I forget all of the previous knitting!
I should have great blog fodder at the beginning of the week that will motivate me to resolve my camera issues.
