I said "W I P it, W I P it good!"

These are a few of my works in progress. 1. Pink scarf for the Think Pink Challenge. 2. Black twitterpated purse needs a liner,(found this pink, black and white skirt at a thrift shop and thought it would make a perfect lining). 3. Pink and Brown Noni (soon to be felted) purse for my KSKS Pal. 4. Socks made with Scout's Hurricane Yarn in Run Like Hell. My goal is to finish them this week so I can start other projects. One being a new knitalong to help me finish items for my daughter. If you are a mom who knits for everyone else except your kids, click the Little Bit Knits button and play along.

I've got mail

My One Skein SP Package arrived and I am in love with the contents! So much so that I have been looking for patterns that use DK tweed or #9 needles just so I can use this stuff! The package contained a ball of Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed in Beanshoot, a pair of #9 Beechwood knitting needles with green tips and a package of super cute Knitting Girl mints that are green apple flavored(yummy!). So here is a shout out to my secret pal. Thank you very much, YOU ROCK!

My vacation-Blue sky, lake, and lips...

Just back from 3 days of much needed rest and relaxation in Tahoe. We got a nice little lake front cottage and hung out on the beach all day. I packed my knitting hoping to get a lot done, but instead found myself mesmerized by the beautiful blue lake with its snow capped mountains, and cotton candy clouds. My daughter frolicked in the water while hubby and I took turns standing knee deep in the toe-numbing lake. Bean's little chin was shivering and she had goosebumps all over, but she did not want to get out! We finally had to pull her out once her lips got bluer than the water, yet she denies ever being cold!! Kids, you gotta love 'em.
Even though I didn't get much knitting done, I did have the opportunity to teach both of my aunts to knit. One night we were up until 1:00 a.m. learning the basics and when I woke up that morning there was my Aunt Maria sitting on her patio knitting away. I was so proud!
