Thank goodness it’s Friday! This week seemed to drag on forever! But it’s finally the weekend, and a LONG weekend at that!
Yesterday I got a note in the mail that there was a registered package for me at the Post Office. So today I stopped over there at lunch and GUESS WHAT? My friend Maryanne at Woolhogs sent me some gorgeous yarn as a prize in a giveaway she had a few weeks ago! Imagine my surprise to first, receive a package from South Africa! And then to open in and see this gorgeous yarn!
Thank you so much Maryanne! I can’t wait to do something with it. I’ll definitely be posting my decision and finished project.
For now, I am packing and off to the lake for this marvelous long weekend! it is supposed to be a bit cool (high in the 60’s) but sunny the whole time! I expect boat rides, yard work, great food, and lots of fun with my family! Both of my kids will be there and when we are all together there are always a LOT of laughs!
I’m packing my Kindle (of course), and my latest knitting project. I loved my last Truckee Shawlette so much I got some more spring colored yarn and I’m making another one! What do you think?
The lightweight yarn is just perfect for knitting with this time of year. I am using Malabrigo Lace Superwash Solis and Water Green. I love the color combination and this one shows the stripes much more than my previous one. So that is probably my primary project for the weekend.
I am also bringing some other DK weight yarn just in case I want to start my first knit bunny. I just bought these two bunny patterns from Little Cotton Rabbits. I have admired Julie’s knit animal toys for months and she just recently decided to sell the patterns. Well I was ecstatic and rushed to buy her first two. So needless to say I am VERY excited to try my first one! I’m not sure I will start this weekend but I am bringing it just in case!
On my Kindle, I am reading The Inn at Rose Harbor by Debbie Macomber. I am flying through it and it is so good! In the summer I love to read light, sentimental books (Good beach/lake reading!) This one is about a woman who opens an Inn around Puget Sound.. and guess what? In her free time she loves to KNIT! And has multiple projects going at any one time! I think I can identify with that! Anyway, I am enjoying it and already queueing up the next book! It is good to be prepared on these long weekends! Ha! ha!
The main thing I am looking forward to, though, is spending time at the lake with my family!
I hope everyone else is geared up for a great weekend!
