Thanks Secret Pal......

My secret pal is so thoughtful. She sent me some heart swizzle sticks to add to my collection. Ironically, I did not have one heart in my collection. Thanks SP. Can't wait to see what she'll send next. Have a good week.

Knit shop in Winter Park with the owner Donnie. Posted by Hello

Not sure what I'm doing.......

Okay. I have a digital camera now. So, I'm gonna give it a shot (no pun intended) at trying to post some pictures from a recent trip my DH and I took to the Orlando area. Of course the first day there, I went to a wonderful yarn shop in Winter Park. The owner, Donnie, and Dr. J were so nice. I stayed all afternoon and joined them for their weekly knit-in. Of course I hit the jackpot. The UPS man had delivered a bunch of new yarns. I bought some wonderful Lorna's Lace yarn. I started the Pie-wedge shawl. The colors are gorgeous. I JUST LOVE IT!!! Can't really work on it until I finish the blanket I started for my nephew who is coming in March. YIPPIE!! He's priority right now. I'm going home in March and must go home with the blanket.

I also bought some purple Lorna's Lace sock yarn for my SP. Lucky Secret Pal. It's her favorite color too. And I just love the new Rowan patterns. There are so many things I want to make in that book. I just wish I had more time, as does everybody else, to knit. Wonder how I can find more time? Any suggestions?

Also, I had to include a picture of my DH & I. We had such a good time. We had a wonderful dinner at Emeril's Tchoup Chop. The fried wontons and peanut sauce were YUMMY!

Gotta go out and jog before we have dinner with friends. Have a good weekend. Ciao.

A little bit about me.....

Here's a little info about me for Secret Pal 4.

If it's a color combination that I like, it doesn't matter what brand it is.

2. Do you spin? Crochet?
No. I have only been knitting 6 months. Maybe in the future I might learn how to spin.

3. Do you have any allergies? (smoke, pets, fibers, perfume, etc.)
No. I have a Bichon Frise.

No, not at this time.

At the moment, to get out of court reporting school SOON!

PNG Girls

This is the only knitting picture I have at the moment. I made these scarves for my two little favorite Indians back in Texas. They are made of purple squiggle and white cotton. My dear friends, Molly, Gay & Grace, whom I miss a lot, back in Charleston, SC at Knit gave me the idea to knit the two school colors together.

If you're ever in Charleston you should definitely check them out. They have WONDERFUL yarn, and are so much fun to be around.
