Here is my latest creation in the works...the beautiful Clapotis in Noro Sakura color #5...I loooove the dropped stitches...they are sooo much fun! I will be making more of these, probably in worsted weight yarn to make it a little bit bigger so that it can be worn as a wrap or scarf. My friend Lilly already put an order in for one. This yarn is fun to work with, so many colors and neat textures with the unusual "wrapped" yarn every so often.
My fiance' has once again proven what a great eye he has for yarn, he picked out this yarn and the color...he is such a great support for my hobby...I think he has as much fun going to the yarn store as I do...well, maybe not, but he does enjoy watching me with my knitting hobby and loves to see me happy! What a sweetie!! I am sooooo lucky!!
The countdown to marriage is on!! Just a little over a week...Wow, it is hard to believe! I am the luckiest woman on earth and can't wait to be married!

What have I been up to lately??

I have been knitting every night, getting ready for the end of the school year, and WEDDINGS!! This is my fiance', Michael, my two boys, and I at Michael's brothers wedding a couple of weeks ago. What fun!! And to think that We will be married in a little more than two weeks. We are getting married on June 6...our date is 06/06/06! Never going to forget that one!

Here is my 6 year old and I waiting patiently for the wedding to begin...Michael was in the wedding so we all had to be there 2 hours before the wedding...the boys were soooo patient!!

This is the Streakers Shrug that I just finished blocking...knit in Noro Silk Garden #213 and it is absolutely gorgeous!! I finished the first shrug using the Streakers about a month ago...will post pics soon. But I like it in the Noro!! I have worn the first shrug so much, it is my favorite thing so far that I have knit!! I had to make another, and had some Noro I was going to use for socks...decided it would make a better shrug! LOOOOOVE it!! I will finish the lace cuffs and seaming tomorrow and will post pics for sure.

This is an awesome Booga bag that I knit and felted about 2 months ago...and have been using it ever since!! My first felted bag and will have to knit another soon, I love it! I have to make Michael's mom one for her birthday soon. She really loves it!

This is me knitting...I hold my arms up when knitting...weird but it works! I think I do it because it is more comfy on my back...I usually knit in bed, because I can prop up against the wall and sit very straight...when I knit sitting on the couch, I can't lean back because I need to be sitting straight or my back will hurt. I guess we all have our secrets!
I have also started on the Clapotis by Kate Gilbert, same designer for the Sunrise Circle Jacket, and am knitting it in the new yarn by Noro...mostly synthetic with a little wool and silk and it is turning out lovely. Will post pics soon...Finished one of my Fishladder socks and began the other...I have been busy!
