Garnstudio free patterns

Okay, so here are the 3 that caught my eye. Do you think that pink one looks like Juliet? I like all 3 but I must finish Mr. Greenjeans. I'll bet I can have it done by June 1st. Oooh, I love a challenge. Hopefully I will be mowing and grilling today!

This is Kim! She is my bag kitty. She loves all of my yarn and especially bags. She cannot get enough of this bag! She is in it every chance she gets. I thought you would just love it!

Flower Basket Shawl


A friend asked me to knit a shawl.She provided the Frog Tree Alpaca and the pattern. I did not like it, it was too plain. I asked If I could make one of my choice...VoiLa! one week and it is blocked and finished. I hope she loves it. I see that my Hosta does! I have started my Mr Greenjeans but went to Garnstudio for a looksee. Wow. lots of goodies. I will find them and post them for your viewing. Have a great Memorial Day weekend. It is raining as I type but will be a gorgeous weekend. Enjoy!

Knitting and Life

I had lunch with the FAB U LOUS Norma and she was just what the doctor ordered! I love her! I made her a pair of yarn ball earrings and they served as a name tag at the NH wool festival. How cute!
My family and I went to Connecticut to celebrate my Grandmothers 90th birthday this past weekend. It was great. All of us were there, except my oldest:(. Oh well. We got great pics and had a wonderful time. I brought my newest attempt at knitting-Mr.Greenjeans- classic flash, lagoon, but did not knit at all. I had started a Blue Sky Eyelet cardi, But I just don't like how "heavy" it is. Especially for a summer sweater. Ariann has spoiled me. I am going to make another one. Just can't decide what color!
I have also started a Flower Basket shawl and hope to be done with it by friday. Size 10 needles and Frog tree alpaca super fast. My photos won't print so I will attach them tomorrow.
