Sedona Socks

My dear friend Lisa from Little Bit of Knit designed these fabulous socks for Mama Llama! (she used Mama Llama Bamboo Sock colorway Bella) If you guys are on Ravelry make sure to put it in your queues! She is starting a stole with Mama Llama yarn pretty soon, can't wait to see what she comes up with :)

Seems as if I'm having commitment issues lately. i've started several projects only to get bored with them 1/4 of the way through and starting another. Please tell me this is a phase all knitters go through... Can I find sanity in my indecisiveness? 3 pairs of socks, Nordic Lights capelet , & a tunisian crochet scarf! And I'm slow to pick these back up :(

I am jumping on the Mr. GreenJeans bandwagon, lovely pattern.

Get ready for lots of exotic pictures next post! see you guys in Nov.!

Celebrate Good Times

Chris got a promotion! He will begin his Senior Accountant duties officially next week but they already have him going to the meetings and training. He has worked so hard for this and I'm very proud of him. I think what touched him the most was the overwhelming response of congrats from his co-workers. It was announced after he left work; by the next morning his inbox was full of well wishes. He had a lot of people approching him to shake his hand...... I guess it was obvious to more than just me that hes worked hard for this.

It almost doesn't seem real that in 10 days I will be leaving for Rio. I am so excited and nervous all at the same time. I HATE planes, just the thought of being in the air makes me panic. 12 hours, 12 hours! I can hardly stand 4 hrs to California.... Apparently, you get on the plane at 9pm they serve dinner at 10pm... then they turn all the lights off in the cabin and expect you to sleep in a space the size of an apple create. Can we say sleeping aid! any suggestions?

Not sure If I will get to post again before I leave. I need to hurry and teach myself Tunisian Crochet before I get on that flight!

Big Fun!

I got to meet Laurie! You all know, Crazy Aunt Purl.... She is such a nice person. And a knock-out to boot! Did that sound weird? Laurie came to Yarntopia to hang out, knit and sign some books too. I got the chance to tell her that I was Jenn's best friend! Jenn told her to watch out for me, Cool huh! Here is a photo that Janet from Twisted Knitter took of us:

Yes thats a mimosa in my hand, I admit it!

The Trunk Show was a success and I got to meet some lurkers of this blog... You know who you are ;) I had a great time meeting so many different people and I'm thinking.....
I LOVE DOING TRUNK SHOWS! If I had it my way I'd travel around the country doing this! hmmmm, could I do that? Would Yarn Stores want a bum like me to hang out in their shop and meet people and enable their customers with even more yarn?

More pictures to come of the trunk show next post..... promise ;)

Want to know what I'm working on?
