A wintery day.

This past weekend I went on a knitting retreat with my LYS. We went to Autumn House Farm. I talked a little bit about it on my other blog. I have a flickr set with some photos if you're interested. Aside from the ones I am showing you here. Some of my photos didn't turn out something with my camera hiccuping. We got to get up close and personal with the sheep and learned how they care for them (the industry side of it) We also got to shop at the store. We also met with a weaver who works there also She designs some beautiful things. I had her card and all that info ready to share but I'm not sure what happened to it. (I'll look for it)
We had a lot of fun. (well i did that's for sure)

While there I finished my Tilted Duster. I used the called for Berroco Peruvia and I love the yarn . it's super soft and knits beautifully. The pattern said i would need around 9 skeins but really I only used 8. so that's a good thing. I found some ceramic buttons at joann's for the sweater. I blocked the sweater and it was finally dry this afternoon so I dragged my DH outside for a photo op! (it was a tad cold) I'll be taking it in to the store to stay for a while. I'm sure the more people look and feel that sweater the more will want to make it.
Now I'm on to my Christmas presents. I'm currently working on some Star Wars Amigurumi's. Starting with Princess Leia. off to work!

Name this photo!

I've been trying to post a blog for the past couple of days and I keep getting distracted!
Yesterday while I was finishing up the 2nd of the 2 stockings I made for a lady at church, Simba started playing with some of the string that was hanging around waiting to be sewn in. So i stopped knitting and started playing with him. And snapping some photos b/c it was really funny! and I came up with this fun photo. and it says something so I'd like to know what do you think it says?

My Veteran

In honor of Veterans day my DH got all dressed up and went with the VFW to honor the vets who weren't able to come home. They did a nice ceremony.
It was rather chilly here this AM so we were all bundled up. Then we went out for lunch.
so all in all it was a really slow and relaxing day.
well for the most part. the girls have been a little stir crazy lately. supposedly this weekend it's going to be nice out so maybe we can get them to play outside. WAIT a min. This weekend is my LYS's knitting get away YIPPIE! I'm not even going to be around. I'm sooo looking forward to that!
oh hopefully my DH will be able to get the girls outside for a while so that they run off some steam. If it's not too bad out tomorrow I'll try to send them out and on Thursday.
whoo hoo this weekend is coming fast and I'm super duper excited!

A quick look back

This is what my month looked like. Very busy and I've neglected this blog again.
Lately I've been knitting baby items and listening to a few books on CD. It helps to get things done faster.
I'm anxiously awaiting the elections on Tuesday. Mostly b/c I'm sick of all the commercials, junk mail and the phone calls. I'm sure I'm not the only one! But also I am looking forward to voting!
i hope everyone else also goes out and votes!
