Lunch with my PTA buds yielded these thoughtful gifts. The box and bag are for yarn projects. Perfect. The box will live by my knitting spot and hide things that accumulate. The bag will be for traveling wth my knitting. The red velvet cupcakes are from one of my favorite bakeries!! And are my favorite flavor. The gift card is to another favorite bakery and will supply my doughnut fix! What sweet friends. I told them I just wanted to have lunch to be with them, not to celebrate my birthday.
Not really a birthday present, but it arrived on my birthday, Knit Picks Andean Silk!!! I won this is Ellen’s contest.
Inspiration Saturday: I am feeling the color work bug again. All I want to look at are stranded designs.
would add more color.
Love the short sleeves
Tahoma from Knitty.com
Have Nashua Yarn for this.
Have Debbie Bliss yarn for this.
And nothing I have planned right now is Stranded! Which is likely why I am going to make another Norwegian Star Earflap. A knitting friend is gathering donations for a benefit so I told her to count on me for a hat. Great excuse to set down the boring St st shawl for a bit. But I am getting closer to the lace on the French Cancan Shawl. And saying prayers for France while I knit on it. The evil in this world astounds me.
What’s your inspiration today?
