A Wonderful Weekend

I had my favorite group of Ladies over last night for our Traveling Malabrigo Scarf Party. We all had a terrific time and the food was wonderful. Our scarves as you can see turned out beautifully. We all had a great time knitting these scarves and can't wait for cold weather. Sunday was a lazy day, with my parents and sister coming over for dinner. My darling husband made everything.

It has rained here two days in row, hurrah. We really need the rain. I so am looking forward to fall and winter. It is kind of different in our house for the last couple of years, since we no longer have any school going children. It is funny how you mark time, when your children are in school, now it is just August and Labor Day will be here soon. We are free, but it does feel a little different.

I am back to knitting on my Ludivine Mystery KAL!!!!

Ah August Where Is September!

I am tired of this heat and humidity, I want cooler weather. Of course there are those of you out there who would tell me we can't all get what we want.

I had a wonderful trip Tuesday to Delaware with my good friend Louise. We picked up her new company van, but that wasn't the fun part. We went to the most wonderful yarn shop in Newark, Delaware. It had every imaginable yarn you could think of, it had wonderful samples for you to look at, and it had plenty of sofas, chairs and tables for you to sit and knit at or look through books. The owner was wonderful and even let Louise take pictures for her blog, Adventures of A Geritol Gypsy.

I am slowly going through my stash and putting yarns together. I am also working on about 4 projects at once. I am making a wonderful cardigan for my Mom for Christmas and just ordered the yarn. I am also knitting a hood for my daughter for this winter and got the most wonderful yarn from Webs.

August is busy so I hope it goes fast.
