New yarn, new ideas, new WIP's

This has been a busy but enjoyable week. First we just returned from our nephew Winston's wedding which was held on the beach. It was a beautiful wedding and we had a great time. We stayed at Seaside Inn at Litchfield Beach and Golf Resort. Our suite was very nice and the screened in porch was nice for relaxing and knitting, with the sound of the fountain nearby.

You can see the photo's of the wedding here... (password is wikoff)

Once we returned home I was greeted by my order from WEBS that had arrived with my Boku andthe
Karaoke yarn!

I also purchased some Noro Silk Garden from a friend on Ravelry and it came too! Joy, joy, joy much entrelac knitting to do. Oh and I almost forgot my Katia and Ola yarn also came.
This is the yarn that was called for in the Ponchette Pattern and I want to knit it again in hope's that I will like the drape of it better using the yarn it calls for.

My Berry Sweet Knitting Bag is waiting on the needles that I ordered for it. It is all knitted up and waiting to be assembled. Wait till you see the needles, they are so cute!

I started a new project using my new Karaoke yarn. It is called Felted Stained Glass Fan Bag
and thus far it's pretty easy to knit. A little different than anything I have knit so far, but still easy to follow and coming along. I will have photo's soon, not much to show you yet.

Still waiting on my beautiful Jordana Paige knitting bag to arrive. The tracking says that it will be here Monday! Finally! I ordered it on my birthday... September 27th! This is way longer than I thought it would take... jeez! So, I should have a nice package waiting when we return home from Tennessee.

Oh, speaking of Tennessee ... my hubbie has surprised me with a mini vacation to the mountains this weekend. We'll be staying in Cubby Bears. We leave early tomorrow morning and come back on Monday. As we just returned from the beach I wasn't expecting this at all. We have stayed in Pigeon Forge, TN before and always enjoy our visits there and this will be the second time that we have stayed in one of Timber Tops rentals. The last time we rented a chalet and took our children, but this time it will be just the two of us and we are looking forward to a relaxing weekend. I of course will be knitting out on the porch and enjoying the view.

Ok, that is all for now as I have to go pack and get all of my knitting together to take with me.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend as well...


  1. Isn't it wonderful to arrive home to find a box of goodies? I LOVE packages! I went to Hobby Lobby today and they had the MOST yarn on sale!!!! (I am friends with Auras daughter Andrea that is how I found your blog)

  2. Look at all that beautiful yarn! I got my Elann box today, thankfully before it rained. Gotta stop buying yarn. Need someone to slap my wrist whenever I try to reach for that "add to cart" or "checkout".

    Thanks for letting me know about I went to the site and it looks like it isn't free anymore? You get a 14 day free trial and have to choose which plan you want to buy into.


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! If you want me to get back to you, remember to please leave me your email address.
