Last Saturday- my bestest girlies took me out for the day. It was so pretty out!! Jeannie, Dawn and I met at Pannera Bread at 10:30 for a Brunch, then I got to open gifts from them both. They spoiled me. Jeannie gave me the Scottish Highlands Knit Book snd made me a beautiful card and 2 flowers and Dawn gave me a notepad, kitty stickers, a ankle bracelet for the beach and a beautiful fair isle hat, The Siena Hat, that she had made. They over did it!!
Then on to some LYS in Greensboro that I had not been to. Needless to say - THIS AND THAT in Greensboro is my kind of shop! I bought a pattern and di.vi` Fiamma in a beautiful bue and teal combo to make the Cropped Raglan top, and 2 skeins each of Paca-Paints (100% Superfine Alpaca) in #404 Moonlight and #405 Playful to make something just Prissy!! I also bought a beautiful top as well as they sell not just yarn, but clothes and jewelry and handbags too!! The owner was so sweet and friendly and very helpful!! I will go back very very soon!! We did stop at 2 more, and I got The Second Treasury of Magical Knitting to make kitty beds.
To end the day, a stop at Cold Stone for Chocolate Ice Cream with Butterfinger - my fave!! It was so nice to sit outside and relax!
I had such a great time! Thank you both for my Special Day!! I love you both dearly!!
I have to say I am IN LOVE WITH SUBLIME!!
Right now I am woking on "Shell" from the Sublime organtic cotton dk book. I love this yarn and have used in on several things....
I am almost done with the front and need to put on the neckband and stitch up sides. It is SOOOO soft!!
