Word of the day--GREAT

What a great day --no knitting today.  Addi's baby blanket has out grown all my project bags.  I just had to make another and I love these winter scenes.  I dug into my grandby's button box and added a couple.  I often forget how much I like to sew.  Now Addi's blanket has a new home and I am off to watch  foot ball with Mike and maybe get it done this weekend.

Addi's blanket, I love these colors

What do you say???

Madeline Tosh Sock yarn!!  How do you knit your socks, toe up of top down??

I really like this color way

If you don't want to knit socks with me you can choose some other wonderful Malabrigo yarn.  Le Anne was the first person to pick up two of these skeins.  It is my favorite also.

Mounds of M & M's

There are mounds of MadTosh and Malabrigo squirting out of boxes everywhere at Serendipity
Oh, I have not picked one skein out as of yet, tomorrow may be a different story.

Has it almost been one year???

My project for now is a blanket for Addison Mae.  It is hard for me to believe how quickly this first year of her life has gone by.  Tami now has her granddaughter Georgia Grace and Joan has a new grandson Asher.  Natalie and Bud asked if I would make her a blanket so I did some deep stash diving for sock yarn.  Lots of progress was made on her blanket because I hobbled around most of the day.  Big toes and log furniture=pain involved at some point.
Proud Papa's

She was so tiny!!
Addi will be a year old Jan. 6th.  I am looking forward to this holiday season because we will be together as a family here in Colorado.  I never knew how much fun it is to be a Nana and Papa.  If you live here in BV you get so see Joan and Bill and Tami with their grandchildren.  This season that approaches is a time of enjoying family and friends.  I never want to take any of that for granted..  One of my great pleasures it so make gifts for Addi & Keenan.  Keenan will be getting some knitted animal.  (He can't wear wool)  Photo's to come of that for sure.
This is some of the yarn in Addi's blanket.  It was for the Stephen West mystery KAL and the colors did not work together at all.  I am loving them in her blanket.  Any one getting the itch to knit some socks??  Give me a call at the shop, I think we should have a KAL with a sock pattern.

Who knew you could have this much fun!!

 Here is Kathy's Malabrigo shawl.  She wouldn't stand still for me to have her in the photo--her love for purple has rubbed off on me.  I have even knitted some purple items.  Don't leave this laying around Kathy or you might see me wearing it.  The Buena Vista Art Walk will be December 17th,  be sure and come in the shop to see shawls our talented  knitters will have on display.
 These to young ladies were in the shop today having way to much fun,  I just had to get a photo.
 For those of you who regularly follow my blog-I had to put the hat a week project to rest.  I made 10 of the 16.  Those last 6 will have to wait while I practice my crochet.  (I have to make Addi a crochet blanket before Christmas also)  I want of offer a free workshop to people who want to perfect their crocheting skills.  On November 22nd from 1:00 to 2:00 in the afternoon I will be providing  the opportunity to do just that.  This Be-Sweet yarn works up into a dish cloth that will make want to do the dishes.  Give us a call at the shop and we can get you signed up.

Knitting on the River

Robin--knitting on her Day Break while on the river.  We are happy to have her home--she has promised more photos and great stories of her 3 week trip on the Grand Canyon

 Val's first hat-she used Spud and Chloe sweater yarn-also being creative like she is the use of a stitch marker for the top made it really cute.  Way to go Val, there will be more hats to come for this knitter
