A chocolate fondue pot. Yummy!
A cool candle. It's made of this jelly-like stuff and has an orchid in it.
A necklace and earring set. The colour is sort of an aqua-sky blue mix. I love it!
Thanks you guys!
My boyfriend and I went out for dinner at East Side Mario's on Saturday. It was delicious! We decided to forgo the movie when we saw how busy the theatre was, so we bought a bottle of wine, went home and celebrated the fact that I'm getting old!
Sunday saw some progress on the knitting front. I finished knitting my shawl:
Now I just have to sew in the ends, block it, and decide how I want to do the beading. Did you think it was actually finished? Not even close, but it's looking good and I'm happy so far.
On Sunday night I worked on the 2nd Gull Wings sock while watching this:
I love a sleuth that knits!
All that knitting paid off because yesterday I managed to:
Finish the Gull Wings! (fanfare!)
I am excessively proud of how I managed to get them to match. See:
Not bad at all.
Last but not least my birthday present to myself from The Loopy Ewe (This is a new order, sadly not the one still lost in transit)
I'm not telling you what the yarn is for (Shhh...it's a secret!), but it's not socks!
The beaded thing you see there is this:
A row counting bracelet from the Moonlight Knitter. Quite clever really. This way I can keep track of up to 100 rows without losing my little row counter (and my mind). It's been very useful already on my next sock project. I'll have pics of that next time.
TTFN and KEEP KNITTING!
