Yesterday I teased you with all sorts of coming attractions. I'm delivering the goods today!
First I went on and on about some yarn I purchased yesterday. Let's see if you don't twitch when you see these saturated colors:
Today I hung out with my Chicken friends at Kathy's house. We had wonderful food and while they worked on their Kaffe Fassett quilt projects, I made three more wool pillows to go with the one I had finished months ago:
Once I finished sewing I packed up my Bernina and turned to knitting. I finished the Man Hat so I could move on to the Malabrigo Rios golden beret. Here's the top of the Man Hat:
Fooled you -- not the usual Double D decrease! It's a bit big for Hedy too:
I cast on for the golden beret and hope to have it just about finished tomorrow so stay tuned for that picture.
I also told you yesterday about my new shoes. My old Merrill's are wearing on the soles and the leather is cracking where it meets the soles. I picked out a new pair of Keen's:
I love everything about them except that they're made in Ch~na. Ugh. I've been wearing Keen shoes for the last 5 years and this is my fourth pair. They're so ugly they're cute, at least to me.
I also picked up another pair of Smart Wool socks:
I'm in good shape for the Charlevoix show that begins on Friday. I just need to make up a few hang tags and knit whatever I can finish before I head up there, either Wednesday straight from work, or very early Thursday morning. Kevin will hold down the fort. Today I had to get on him to get his laundry done that was strewn all over the laundry room. I could hardly walk through there before I headed off to Kathy's house. I'm happy to say it's new and improved in there now -- thank goodness!
