It's Raining Now

We're supposed to get quite a bit of rain this weekend.  NOT looking forward to the drive home tonight.  My long time friend, Wayne came by the shop today and surprised me with pizza for lunch.  It's been a quiet week for the most part which sometimes is a good thing esp. in the case of the missing ipod package.

Here are the 2 books I got recently.  I love Scandinavian design and this book has some simple patterns to do in it.  I esp. like the bird motif on the chair pads and the pom poms are cute.







































This book has pretty sweaters and I wouldn't mind making them all but I have to start out with the easiest one first.





















This one looks nice on the model but I have a feeling that it would make me look like I had Popeye arms, hee, hee!


































I want to make this one in ivory color.  It has 3/4 length, slight bell sleeves and according to the book it's an easy pattern and to be safe, I'll use the yarn it calls for in the pattern.

This is the yarn that I got from Big Lots.  I went and got 3 more skeins of the yellow the other night so now I have 6 and it will be mostly a yellow project.  I want to get green so I have to see where I can get it from.  Maybe Ravelry has someone who wants to get rid of one.  I have a plan for these but it's a surprise to be revealed later! According to the Lion Brand website I saved about $13.00 by getting it at Big Lots :)
















Here is part of my small collection of Hedgehogs.  Most of my stuff is packed except these 2 until we move and I couldn't resist getting these garden gloves the other day, they have Hedgies on 'em!





















I'm getting close to finishing the Chevron scarf and then I plan to start on the next project using my new springtime colored yarn!

I've decided to close on Monday, President's Day and continue to work on the kitchen.  I don't really feel like it but it has to get done and maybe I can get allot accomplished having Sat. afternoon, Sun. and Monday to whip it out.

That's all for now, thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend!
