now i realize there is more knitting featured in this picture than baby, but it is a perfect shot to show off not only the baby, but the little angora booties (last minute knitted gifts) i made him. aren't they sweet? they were so very soft. now i don't know how much wear the booties will get (angora booties aren't super practical), so i made a little keepsake box for them to be stored in for years to come. congratulations to their whole family, i am happy to be a part of their lives!
now i finally got around to surfing some of my favorite blogs. a local blogger, the craftymodster, (you may remember the amazing free yarn she sent me!) has similar taste to me. ohh and she happens to think my blog is faboo, which you know, a girl loves the compliments :) anyhoo, the point is, i see we both made the same discovery at our local joann's.
very soft, not so spendy, wool/nylon/cotton yarn. i had a couple 40% off coupons so i got them for cheap. i see a pink/green striped stocking cap with a pom pom on top. the yarn is 4 stitches to the inch on size 10's. anyone know a good free pattern out there for a gauge like that? i am lazy. not to mention, i should be able to whip one up sans pattern, but i am terrible at that stuff.
oh, and one more thing, joann's has the loop-d-loop book by teva durham. you could get if for a bargain if you use a 40% off coupon.
today i went to a sale at a lys, village yarn and tea. i really went to pick up the new rowan. i was disappointed because they still don't have it. the sale wasn't too great either. lots of summery yarns, some good stuff, but not marked down that much.
anyone going to see that movie "just like heaven"? i am a sucker for chick flicks. i am head over heels for mark ruffalo too. a big bag of the gigantic m&m's along with some salty popcorn and it would be the perfect evening. am i the only sucker?
and i see a lot of you out there are big fans of the salty chocolate. fyi, someone pointed out in the comments that you can order fran's online.
