For me.......

It has been a very busy two weeks. I am hoping things will slow down so I can get back to knitting and blog reading. I did find the time to do some shopping with my Birthday money. I have always wanted a dress form to use when sewing or when I am designing a pattern. I splurged and bought the lady valet dress form. Isn't she pretty!!!

She is in route all the way from the UK. I couldn't find any US stores that carried this type of dress form. The stand is wood, which is what I wanted. The best part is the form is adjustable so I can alter it to my exact measurement. It should be arriving this week.

On the knitting front I am still working on my February Lady sweater and I have two new projects that I think I may be knitting for Christmas gifts.

Brooklyntweed just came out with two beautiful hat patterns. The first is a cable hat called Habitat. I have a couple of men that I think will love this hat. The second is for the ladies and is called Porom. I have yarn in my stash for both hats but I may need to purchase some more.

I love quick knits for Christmas gifts. Can you believe that there is only 95 days, 12 hours, 52 minutes and 47 seconds left til Christmas. But who is counting. LOL !!!!

Blogiversary Contest

It's been a year since I started blogging. I have met so many wonderful people through my blog and made some great friends. I wanted to do some type of contest but have been too busy to think of anything creative. So leave a comment from now until Wednesday September 17th and you will be entered to win 1 of 3 prizes.

First is Lorna's Lace Shepherd Worsted in colorway Embers (2 skeins - 225 yards each).

Second is Regia Canadian Color. This is one of my favorite self striping sock yarns. I don't think you can get this anymore. When I found it I bought 10 skeins. You know I love sock yarn.

Last is 3 skeins of Noro Kureyon color 139. The colors are purple, pink, teal, blue, green and rust.

Goodluck and thanks for reading!!!!!
