Knit-n-Stitch News First!
I have ordered and expect delivery in the next few days of Fiber Dreams patterns!! These will go up on the Knit-n-Stitch next week as well as the Red Heart Sock yarn which is finally in and some new Paton’s worsted wt yarn and some Cross Stitch patterns. These changes start Monday and I will let ya know here when the changes have been completed! I havent finalized arangements with Ray over at Knitivity yet to make up the kits with his yarns and Laura’s patterns but am hoping I will be able to build and offer them in the near future :-) Till then (and afterwards if you just want the yarn but why would ya LOL) go bug Ray and let him know that his indie work is appreciated and loved and For Heavens sake BUY!!! Then of course you’ll have to buy all the needles and such so trot right on back to the Knit-n-Stitch for those :-)
Ok enough of the webstore promos for today on to the part that you really wanna see and thats pictures!
Here is another piccie of my little girl Nayla, she is gonna be a strictly outdoor kitty since the boys arent very happy to let her come in. The girlies dont mind but in the desire to keep the boys from bein cranky (they are both strong guys) and my hands from bein attacked by mad kitties she is happy to be loved from outside the door. We will be packaging her and the boys up shortly for their trips to the vet for shots, check ups and of course the dreaded fixins. Isnt she a little cutie!!
Here are my second entry into Summer of Socks. Pic was taken earlier today and they arent gonna be finished in time for the 10pm EST ending time for this 2wk time period. Oh well they will be done and hopefully posted by Sunday eve or early Monday for then next 2 weeks. I will be having Brian randomly choosing another pattern for me tonite and will be starting them either this weekend or as soon as this pair is done that is yet to be determined. These socks (pictured) are for me, most of the rest of the socks done between now and Christmas will be gifted. There will also be a specially designed pair of socks made for my dad. My mom and I are gonna work on designing a pair of intarsia/fair isle combo socks for him that say Semper Fi. I am hoping these will be done by His Bday in September or if not then by Veterans day. He is a Proud Veitnam Vet and also Proud to be a Marine! Since he doesnt read my blog or check out Ravelry I will be posting progress here and there. I have a few other projects blooming in my head and will be chatting about them here as time goes by including working on the Blended Frog Scallopini Pattern and offering it here as a freebie in the future. It wont be a downloadable pattern you will have to print it from this page but I’ll let ya know when its ready and you can print off.
I will be posting more flower pics soon as my Glads are starting to bloom, so far only the ones from last yrs planting but the new ones from this yr are starting to get big and should be putting out their flower stalks soon.
Well I’m off to take a shower and get ready to go to the Veterans cemetery here in Rocky to meet up with the rest of my fellow VFW members for the local paper to take a picture :-) See ya’ll either Sunday or Monday….Hopefully with an FO and a New WIP photo to show :-) I’ll leave ya with a pic of Sandy who clearly thinks my dirty sock is good enough to sleep with…
