May is still SOCK MONTH as Serendipity

 Laura brought in her shawl today that she made out of Mad Tosh Sock Yarn.  She will be offering this class on July 14th in the afternoon.  Call the store if you would like to join us-the class space in limited, you will need to have some basic knowledge of how to knit lace.  It is one amazing shawl.  Hope you can join us.
 Here are a couple of the ladies who took the Ann Budd sock class last week.  May is sock month at Serendipity Yarn and Gifts so we have some great deals on Sock books.  There is lots of fun sock yarn to pick from also.

Good Coffee-Ann Budd-and a blue spruce

How I am starting my day!!  A great cup of coffee and the excitement of Ann Budd being in town.  She is teaching her sock class at Serendipity this morning. 

Thanks to my friend Lucy-she just returned from her country and look what I was gifted.  Oh is that a little bit of the Taste of the West for June sticking out--I am casting my Raindrops and Roses shawl on today with that yarn.  :)

Here is my Blue Spruce pattern.  I am having a go at designing again.  I knitted this once with just a few notes--now to knit it again and write down every step of the way.  That is if anyone would like to have a "Blue Spruce" of their own.  It would be fun to do a KAL this fall with all of you.

Why I can say I "Celebrate Mothers Day"

This is our daughter Calista and her son Keenan.  She took him to the car races--he will never forget this day Calista!

This is my mom "Calista"  AKA Billie or Gram.  Holding Little Miss Addi Martin

Our son and his wife Natalie on his Commissioning Day--He is now an officer in the United States Navy.  Addi stole the show.  I love being a mom, wife and friend to all of you.  I hope you enjoyed your Mothers Day.
