Happy Easter everyone! Vacation is almost over for us. It has been busy! To sum up-
The Yarn Harlot was FUNNY!
The B&B Hubby and I stayed at was great!
We tasted a LOT of wine!
I went to 3 yarn shops!
And I have some goodies to bring home!
That's a pile of yarn on a case of wine! We had fun!
More when we get back! Later!
soon! I have everyone else packed. I am not yet. We are leaving at 2:00 today. First stop on vacation...Chicagoland! I managed to rearrange vacation a little so I would be passing through when The Yarn Harlot was there! This is the closest she is coming to me, so I wanted to make it work. We have a room in Oak Brook close to the Borders where she is speaking. We are staying at a place with a pool so Hubby can keep Big Boy and Baby Boy occupied while I am with The Harlot. I am so excited! Unfortunately, my book that I pre-ordered at Overstock still has not arrived! So I will have to get one there. Anyway, I hope I don't say anything stupid!
We will then head to WI wednesday. Thursday and Friday, Hubby have reservations at a B & B in Door County. It is supposed to be cold! Oh well. Two nights without The Boys! EEeeehh! I might actually get to sleep past 7 am! I plan on getting in at least one blog post while away with pictures. I hope to find a few yarn shops along the way.
In actually knitting news, I forgot to take a picture of my Mom in her new Jaywalkers. Next week. I finished another pair for me. The purples ones I showed last time. They are drying. Otherwise, I started a pair of Jaywalkers for me in CTH Monet colorway. See-
I am loving this yarn. And the colorway is fabulous!
OK. I have to pack! More from the road. I hope I don't say anything stupid;-)
I am loving my miters! I have one complete square.
I have seen different examples of the miter blanket. Everyone plays with the colors. I am too. But I decided to change things up a bit by playing with the pattern within the miter. I am happy with the way it turned out. This is how the rest will be. Just change the colors. Notice the first is in orange and blue- Illinois colors!
Next up, the yarn porn I told you I had.
Cherry Tree Hill in Monet from The Loopy Ewe
Spunky Eclectic in Dandy Lion from the yarn of the month club
Louet Gems in Neptune from The Loopy Ewe
Louet Gems in Sage from The Loopy Ewe
Sockotta in color 605- very denim friendly
The Loopy Ewe Knit Notes for Socks notebook from The Loopy Ewe
Thelonius by Cookie A. from The Loopy Ewe
Yes, I had another order from The Loopy Ewe come in. I may or may not have placed another this week when she did her update. Hubby really needs to give me a little attention, cuz when he is gone, that is what I do. It could be worse!
I finished my Mom's Jaywalkers last night. I took them up to her work this morning. She wore them all day! I will take a picture Sunday when I am at her house. I think they turned out great. I will be making a pair for me soon. Maybe the CTH Monet?
We leave for vacation next Tuesday! Holy Shit! I have a lot to do. I have to pack 4 people for 7 days! Yuck. More info on our vacation later. But, did I mention I was going to see the Yarn Harlot?
