Okay, finally a picture of the lovely Noro yarn my SP sent me! 3 skeins, and I have officially felt it's softness at least 50 times. I'm now searching patterns for the perfect one, I can't wait to get started with a project with this! Thank you again SP!

And... I thought you might enjoy a picture of Scott's needles displayed in a beautiful vase from one of his customer's blogs. His retail locations are growing, you can find these stix at The Cultured Purl, among others (links to follow)

This and That!


I hope everyone had a great Fathers Day!

I finally finished my Interweave Knits shrug for my friend Susanna. I give it to her Friday and will take pictures of how she looks with it on.

We've been real busy with AJ.. he's a handful! Starting to babble, and this week for the first time he tried cereal! he actually likes it, believe it or not. Here's yet another picture of my little angel..

Last week I visited Audrey at her home and shop and had a great time. Stop by her blog and wish her congratulations on her pregnancy, and while you're there, take a glance at the beautiful bags she's carrying in the shop.

Have an outstanding day... and stay cool!

I'm almost done with the Interweave shrug for a girlfriend... I managed to get some knitting time in over the past week, oh how I missed it! and we've been snapping pictures like crazy of AJ. Here's a few to enjoy...
