Listen to Episode 17 Here!
Thank you to everyone who sent birthday wishes! And I hope your Christmas and New Year celebrations were as blessed as mine.
I finished the Zephyr Shawl for my mother. What a sight to behold!
For those of you who are closet Scotch tape sniffing addicts like me, there's a group for us.
One of my Christmas gifts included a Majacraft Skeiner which will arrive in February. Another was a sweater's worth of Malabrigo...oh, let me pause and catch my breath!
And finally I was able to cash in some gifts and put my money on CampKIP! We'll be taking over Pere Marquette in Grafton, IL on April 6-9, 2011! It looks like so much fun! I hope you can join me!
We also hope to attend Stitches South April 14-17, 2011 in Atlanta, GA.
My little Christmas Gnome ornament gave me so much pleasure in the making. I hope that it will give the recipient, Fiona Duthie, just as much pleasure.
This is the little toy I modeled it from.
I spun and plied the yarn,
and gathered a donation from Petunia, my French Angora for his beard and hair.
So much fun!
If you are in the Southern California area, Fiona will be giving classes in Costa Mesa January 10 and 11, 2011. Please check out her website for her workshop descriptions.
I was also able to crank out 2 Special Olympics Scarves on my Bond Incredible Sweater Machine! The red and white is for GA and the blue and turquoise is for TN.
ON MY NEEDLES:
I would love to post a picture of my February Lady Sweater but it is so close to completion now, I am going to make you wait for the "reveal".
Up for trade is a Child's approx. size 5-6 hand-knit sweater knit in Northamptons Bulky.
All that is left to finish is the collar and some seaming. Please present your trades to us via firstname.lastname@example.org or on Ravelry to Thriftyknitter.
IN OUR WINEGLASS:
Layer Cake Shiraz 2009 : We both gave this two thumbs up. One thumb for how it tastes and one for how well it goes with chocolate! And speaking of chocolate, here is the link for Olive and Sinclair Chocolate Co. Nashville's own!
Thank you to everyone who has donated! And we are always grateful for all our listeners! We love having you along!!
