Last week was my birthday...thanks for all the birthday wishes on FB and Twitter, by the way. It was sweet of all of you to take time out to do that and your efforts were appreciated. My husband, Dave took me for a 2 hour kayak tour at the Assateague State Park. It couldn't have been a more perfect day to explore the natural habitat and the wild horses that live there. We had a small group and the friendly staff of Super Fun Eco Tours gave a relaxing and educational tour. It was a nice way to spend a beautiful autumn day.
A little something I've been working on...this one will not have the pompom as pictured below from the original pattern.
Great knitting bags are like candy corn, hot chocolate and late night knitting for the knitter's soul. Namaste has done it again with their new bag, The Harlow. This latest treasure is roomy with pockets and compartments to keep you organized whether you're using it for a project bag, a versatile handbag or both. I find that the Namaste bags work well for everyday use and you get a lot of wear out of them. Plus, they are comfy, beautiful, PVC free, and made with vegan faux leather... AND the colors!!!
I found the best deal($85 with FREE SHIPPING IN U.S.on orders over $75- $4 U.S. shipping on ALL others) at Jimmy Bean's Wool.
The Harlow and other great knitting project bags can also be found at KnitPicks, and DreamWeaverYarns. Shop around for the best pricing and availability.
Recently, I started a new pair of comfy socks made with Donna Seex's Bettie Sock Superwash Merino in Island in the Sun from her lovely Etsy shop Skeindalous. Don't you just love the name? I'm using a toe up version sock pattern (Try the free knit pattern:Beginner Socks for Magic Loop Toe-Up Version from Liat Gat at KNITFreedom.com.Socks make such wonderful projects to knit anytime really, but especially when you're traveling.It's a very theraputic experience to knit, enjoy the scenery and take a break from work...
