All in a Days Work

Yesterday I was really excited to get a little "swap gift" in the mail from Lisa! I swapped cashmere for some Crown Mountain hand spun by Lisa.... Gotta love knitting with yarn spun with love ;)

I couldn't wait to cast on for a slouch hat, or beret. I chose the MarioBeret. It only took me 2 hours to complete!

Another "One Day" knit (I made this last Monday night), The Cashmere Neck Warmer. This pattern knitted up in record time! It feels very soft and cozy, I've worn it twice without blocking it yet!

I am here to let you guys know about a rockin' moisturizer.... I have never met Connie nor do I usually publicly boast about something unless I LOVE IT! I got this beauty gem shopping last Friday in Old Town Spring. We stopped at a great shop that was blowing TON's of bubbles outside its pourch...... I came across a shelf nearly empty of face care products..I have VERY SCARY dry skin and I'm sensitive to many name brands and thought I'd give this a whirl. Its the only moistureizer on earth that doesn't burn my face when I put it on! Plus my skin GLOWS all day long. I've gotten several compliments on how great my skin looks.....

So yup, here is my new affordable beauty secret!

I'm already on the second Trickle Sock. Its going by very fast and the pattern is really easy! Jenn is going to love these little sweaters for her feet when she makes the move to Montana!

I realize this is a pretty weak post.... Nothing deep or exciting. I'm turning 35 in one week! Thats exciting right?

I LOVE that yarn you got, and quickly turned into a hat. Love that color combo. And... you're looking skinny Cath!!

Your hat looks lovely - and so do you. Thank you for your recent comment. I'll email you soon... I just need to find the words. x

The hand spun worked perfectly for the beret. Love it and the neck warmer! And you finished both just in time for our last (I hope) blast of cold air.

What do you mean weak post? Beautiful yarn, socks, and hat.

I'm not sure which is worse, oily or dry skin. I'm constantly fighting pimples with my oily skin.
