Remember When...?

I tried to generate interest in seeing the Yarn Harlot in Northampton?? Well, Saturday night at 9:00pm, I got a call from Kathleen asking if I still might be interested. Off we went Sunday at 7am to meet the goddess of knitting! She couldn't have been nicer, her talk was hilarious, and of course shopping for yarn was a huge bonus!!

The teddy bear sweater in action

Britt took this picture of Jack in his sweater the other day. It looks like he is waving "hi". You really can't tell but he's also wearing the moc-a-socs. She showed me a picture today of him in his multi/blue sweater that I made. The boy is growing so fast he won't be wearing either of them for long!

I am loving this bag pattern. I might not want to give it up to Ingrid..oops, or Dawn K, or was it Kathleen? It's kinda fun and goes fast.
Yeah, when do we have to be finished with this "Knitalong"?

Thanks for the concern, ladies. I am heading to the hospital this morning, for a Catscan. My symptoms are getting worse, I missed work 2 days last week. I wish I could figure it out. I am hoping they get to the bottom of this soon. I thought it might be Costochondritis, but it's probably not. Too many puzzles.

Are we meeting this week ahead? Wann have it here? Talk soon. Judi, the friend with no picture....

Knitting Night News

Ladies, it was a lovely night! I enjoyed it even though we were small in number. Ingrid, I loved your egg rolls. Everything was good, but the egg rolls were FABULOUS. You are always a lovely hostess! I like the blue socks you were working on. Yes, I noticed them :)
I particularly enjoyed Sophie sitting next to me. She's so cute!
Kathleen, the hat is perfect the way it is. I think the Mary Jane's are as cute as can be. What a lovely, thoughtful gift! I'm am, however, sorry that we didn't get to meet Homer in person. Maybe the Miss L would take bribes and give him up for a for a couple of hours one night.
Judi, I'm sorry you weren't feeling well. I wish you well with all of your appointments. You were zipping along with the bag! If you can't find your 10.5's let me know. I think I have an extra pair.
Dawn L we missed you. I hope you enjoy your visit.
Pam, if you are reading this we miss you too!
Those of you who are going away this upcoming week have a wonderful time.
take care,
Dawn K

Meet Homer

Hello Loopy Ewes!  I finally finished the good old hedgehog!  With his little black eyes and a needle felted nose, he was all stuffed by Friday afternoon.  The girl was so surprised and really loves him.  We went through a bunch of names until she finally decided on Homer.  

On a side note, the needle felting was relatively simple to do, and I'm happy with the way it turned out.  Here's a website that I found helpful, in case you are interested: Needle Felting  

Hope all of "ewe" are having a nice weekend!  If I can get him away from his new owner, I'll bring Homer on Wednesday.

Thank Ewe all!

What a nice surprise it was tonight seeing ewe all. Thank you so much for the FUN birthday wishes, the laughs and the oh so scrumptious food. I think I will probably be full until next week!
Dawn L, it was so nice of you to make my "favorites". I loved those potatoes. :) :) The cake was beautifully made! Everything was perfect!
Kathleen, thanks also for your part in the cake. YUM! I just LOVE that card you made. I am definitely framing that!
Ingrid, as always your home is always so welcoming. Thanks for opening it up to us.
Judi, I think you did more knitting than any of us! Thank you for the touching rendition of the loopy ewes birthday song!!!! It was stellar! Thank you also for the "almost" ride home and well as the sword for the hippo!
Cathy, it was such a surprise to see you. I am thrilled that you were able to attend. I sure hope to see you more often at our weekly get togethers. Thank you for the ride home.
I love the note pad. I'll send you visually challenged ladies an enlarged version :). I truly appreciate the gift certificate. Hmmm, what do I need yarn for? Thank for the cell phone cozy as well. It's lovely.
Too bad I only have a birthday once a year......what do you think about celebrating half birthdays??????

Check this out!

I was looking at ravelry and I saw that someone mentioned joining their yarn doing a russian joining. I googled it and found this! I think I may try that the next time I need to join some yarn.

Teddy Bear sweater and Moc-a socs

I put the finishing touches on everything tonight so I can bring these to Britt tomorrow. Here's the hoodie with the teddy bear ears :)

I also finished the moc-a-socs for Jack. These will also find their new home tomorrow :)

Yesterday I stopped at A.C. Moore and picked up some yarn to make the hippo for Mackenzie. I hope to get started this weekend.
take care,

So far I have:

4 green apple

4 Fedora

4 Terra Cotta

4 Green Apple

As soon as I get every one's order I will place it. The sooner you can post the better :)

Take the night off!

So, I know that we all discussed our upcoming anniversary and we had the dinner plans all worked out BUT....

This evening DawnK and I were talking and we really think that going out would be so much fun. It would be a nice change of pace and what a great way to celebrate :) No cooking, no cleaning, no mess!
I know that Olive Garden is not a favorite, but what about Clancy's? The prices are super reasonable, you get tons of food, great atmosphere, convenient location, etc.

Dawn & I were hoping we could we bring it back up for discussion. Let us know what you think.

Also, we need to let Pam know what we're going to do - it would be great to have her there too!

Summer Market Bag

Here's the link for the Summer Market Bag. The download is at the bottom of the page. The yarn colors are right on the same page. I'll post at thread later to anonymously post the color that you want. :) This picture shows the pattern better.
take care,
Dawn K

And they call it puppy love!

Ingrid, thank you for hosting! We hope you liked your puppy shower. If you ever notice Bella missing don't even think she is in my Loopy Ewe Bag. :) I hope Bella, Sophie and Shelby enjoy all the treats. Try to post some of those pictures ok? Your summer socks will be done before you know it!

Kathleen, thanks for prompting the swap. I am looking forward to knitting the bag :) I hope Ingrid doesn't mind getting five of them. Good luck on that hedge hog :) I can't wait to see it! Be sure to get a picture of those infamous socks!

Dawn L the socks are coming along nicely! One day I'll have to try some on bigger needles. You had wonderful will power tonight. The benefits of your efforts are really showing :)

Judi, that scarf is looking great! I just LOVE those colors! Bella's bed is just beautiful!!! I want a dog so you can make one for me too!!! Thanks for the snacks. Every thing was great. The cake hit the spot.

I think I'll be able to give Jack his sweater and moc a socks this weekend! I want to get yarn to start the hippo soon. I'm taking a trip to AC Moore tomorrow to see what they have!

On a side note. As I was driving into my driveway I notice a blue light on the ground by my roses. I went outside to get it! Someone put a small solar light in my yard. VERY ODD!!!!

take care,
