A great Knitting Week

What a week. We started with a snowstorm on Monday and ended with 60 + degrees today. It was an overcast day. I did get some house cleaning done though and I feel better about that. My house really needs a good cleaning. Working is getting in the way.

I had a good knitting week though. I completed the March KAL. The dishcloth is called Pot of Gold by Emily Jagos. It's a cute cloth. I used Peaches and Creme in gold with size 6 needles.

I am getting closer to finishing the scarf for the Child Advocacy Auction. I really would like to be finished by Saturday to give to my knitting friend at the Baum School of Art. I am on my fifth ball of yarn and then will have one more to go. After that I will need to weave in the ends and then felt it. I can't wait to see how it looks when I'm finished.
I finally got my first shipment from the Loopy Ewe sock club. What great things came in the package. They sent Handmaiden Casbah yarn in Ocean Currents, with a pattern called Under the Sea designed by Sharon Hart. Also included were a few knitting trinkets: A carabiner, a metal tape measure with pen, and a sock needle measurer by Karatstix. I just love all of it.

I got my next shipment of Sundara Sock Yarn. The colorways from top to bottom are: Autumn rose, Plum and Prickly pear. They are great colors.

I went to knitting class this week at the new shop in Bethlehem, PA called The Knitters Edge. What a great shop! It won't be open for business until around March 19th, but we are able to have class there. There are three classrooms. An area by a beautiful bow window that has sofas and chairs and many many bins to fill with yarn. I did see Encore, Noro, and Debbie Bliss. She still has alot to put out. It's very open and bright. It will be a great shop and I cannot wait to go again next Saturday.
Check out Maggie May. I think she is tired after following me around all day. I think it's cute that she has her favorite ball by her side and check out her tongue (you know she is content when it's sticking out).

The next time I come to Bethlehem to visit my old college roommate I'll have to check out the new place.

I love the Ocean Currents. One day (when the kids are at school, perhaps) I shall join a sock club, too! It looks like fun. Don't you just love getting knitting stuff in the mail?
