So, here is my first EZ knit – this is the Baby Surprise Jacket for Steve and Jinda’s “baby in progress”! This little bundle of joy is expected to arrive sometime early in February. I am going to join the shoulders with an attached i-cord. I absolutely loved knitting this. The simple brilliance of the pattern was perfect! A new EZ devotee has been born!
Next on my schedule is Fiber Fest in Allegan! I am meeting up with several friends – Susan from Indiana, some other ladies from Ravelry, Ann and Mary from our Knit Knight group – and hopefully AnnMarie as well! On my radar – some powder dyes, maybe some STR – I’d like to find a couple of skeins to knit the Chevron Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts – it would make a lovely gift for one of Ken’s sisters for the holidays, I will stop by and see Chris from Briar Rose and look to see if she has some “honey-ish” yarn for Anne Hanson’s Bee Fields Shawl. Then, I am even going to go look at some drop spindles – just to see!! I am not saying I am going to purchase one – but I am going to look.
On the work front – it was an insane week. I will have an early morning on Monday – and will probably head in on Sunday afternoon for a bit. There is an open house in my Grand Haven office and I need to make my office look “homey” so I am planning on bringing up some art work to hang up.
But, for today – I am focused on fiber in all it’s goodness! If you see me today in Allegan – please say hello – that will be me in my “Green Ripples Skirt” with that glazed over look in my eyes!!
