Lauren and I finished our The Weekender top by Andrea Mowry.  I used our color-way Rocky Mountains and Lauren used Paris.

Lauren may actually kill me for posting these pictures, some are not flattering.  I like them because they show the fun love Lauren and I have for each other.

I needed a haircut.  My bangs were in my face and frustrating. I tend to be that person that cuts my own hair and horribly messes it up.  I was proud of myself for superman like strength in restraining myself from taking the scissors to my bangs the day before a trunk show!  Now that the trunk show is over, I’ve cut my bangs and should have done it then!

I don’t remember what we were talking about here, but the look on our faces is funny.  I want to say Lauren smelled something bad and was asking me if I “did it.”.

Apparently, it was really funny!

Lauren and I have such fun the in dye studio.  I feel so blessed.

The Weekender is a great easy knit.    My size actually fits Lauren better and Lauren’s size fits me better.  We tried to trade sweaters, but we each loved our own version and yarn choices better so we stuck with our own projects.

Lauren recently made “Angel Fire” and I can’t wait to see this knit up!

I’m off to dye up some yarn to fulfill some orders.  Have a great day and Happy Holidays!

Lauren made this GORGEOUS shawl by Susanne Sommer of SuSo Knits. It’s called Brioche Tiles.  It is so pretty!  She did a fabulous job!  I’m so proud of her.  Brioche is a little challenging.  Once you get it down, you’ve got it.   This project is not mindless knitting.  You do need to pay attention to it, but, it is well worth the time!

We have the Nightingale Kit on sale.  It has the 3 skeins of yarn to make this beauty!  I am so proud of her!  She did a fantastic job!  It’s stunning.

David’s Yarn in Edmond, OK had a little Halloween party.  This is Pixie (the blonde) and her best friend, Lydia (the red head).  They are the characters, angel and demon, from “Good Omens”.   I thought they looked great.

This is a beautiful shawl in our color-way “Fern”.  I don’t know the name of this pattern.  If you are interested in it, let me know , and I will find out for you.

I’m off to list some new shawl cuffs in the shop.  They are so popular, they sell fast.

It’s cold and wet here in Oklahoma.  My husband is lighting the fireplace now.  Maybe some hot chocolate later… We put Kahlua in our hot chocolate.  Try it.  It’s delicious!

Happy Knitting,
