I've been gifted!

Mom called from Michael's seems there is a sale on yarn, some of it being up to 80% off. I explained my dilemma...I am on a yarn diet until Labor Day. I can not purchase yarn except to finish a project. (I did purchase 3 skeins yesterday, but it was to finish a prayer shawl. I should have purchased even more!)

Well, there was a suede yarn at $1 per a color which was my MIL's Mom purchased all 17 skeins for me. She decided this was a gift to Betty from the two of us. LOL...I also heard she was getting other colors also, as I told her what she picked for me was my birthday present. As my birthday is coming up, that isn't too bad a deal for either of us!

New KAL - Knucks!

What shall I have on my knuckles? CJI Hawk? Dob Arah? Back Off? Or perhaps one of each? Yeppers, this will be fun! Here is the pattern for theKnuck!

I'm gathering my materials to head off into the camper with me so that I can work on my first pair while I'm camped at the county fair with my family. The kids have animals in 4H so we get to go live by the barns in order to take care of their steers. Now I have something fun and portable to take with me!

I have a pair of mittens I am entering in the fair, but those were knit from the cuff up...I've never done gloves. These will even feel as if I am knitting in reverse. I can hardly wait!

Holey Moley is finished!

Wait until Carli sees this one! I have to get pictures uploaded of this poncho, but it will be after I get my homework done. That reminds me, I need to get back to work!
