The One With My Sister

My sister decided to go to Denmark for 6 months to work, but she was nice enough to come and visit me right before she left. I didn't even scare her off when I told her that I was moving 3 days before she was visiting.

We visited Kristen's Knits and all of this yarn may or may not (MAY) have come home with me....

I couldn't resist! And it's a good thing too, since I just found out they are closing. That beautiful pile of fluff includes Spud & Chloe Fine, Supersocke (which my amazing sister bought for me!), Mirasol Nuna, some local handspun and Cascade. I just want to dive into that pile and sleep for hours.

As you know, there has been a bit of a craft & knitting shortage around these parts. No more! I have been knitting up a storm, in fact, I present you with:

My latest WIP. It's just a simple shawlette, but it's brought my knitting mojo back in full force. I love the yarn, the pattern is so simple and I can watch tv and do other things and easily pick it back up again if I have to set it down.

Not only did we visit my LYS, but she brought me an entire box of yarn! Destashing at it's finest, people. I am so in love with everything she gave me and now I must get on with teh nittingz. All that yarn won't knit itself. Oh look! My kitty!

Ok, ok here's a better look at the box. It was so generous of her to bring it all to me and now I know she's expecting I have several FO's by the time she returns to the United States in December. Better get crackin' on that....

And just because I can, here is a picture of our GIANT new TV and TV stand. I love them both. And you can see that I watch many intellectual shows. That 70's Show, anyone? My TV's were all ridiculously old and we got crazy good prices on the stand and the set itself.

I will post pictures soon of our new place. My boyfriend is moving all of his stuff down next week, so it is still a bit of a work in progress around here but we are loving it. Grilling out on our deck has been fabulous. What have you all been up to?
