Sweet Mary Janes....At Last!

Hey All! Well, I am FINALLY posting! I haven't been knitting a darn thing but here are some pics of my SMJs....at last!

This first one is done but the strap is a little long. I need to shorten it and refasten it. Should take but a minute but for some reason I haven't touched it since my first week in Las Vegas.

And here is the pair. The second one as you can see still needs it's strap and button. MAYBE I'll get to it tonight after the youngers are in bed. We'll see, I make no promises.

I love, love, LOVE, this pattern. It's fun, it's fast, and it's oh so cute! I did make a change or two to the pattern but nothing major. Just another crocheted row of green.

My sister has put in her order! Oh and so has everyone else I know! Well, that's it for now! Happy Knitting!

Well, the kids and I flew home from Las Vegas yesterday. We are happy to be back! My nasal passages are very happy with the humidity in the air. I think at one point they were so dry (I managed to get sick this past week! Yeah!) that I wished for death! But now I'm all stuffy and runny (TMI???) just like everyone one else in good ole NW Indiana! That's about if for now folks! I will post more later.

Oh, on the knitting front, I inspired a couple of younge ladies (we're talking kids) to knit and taught the older one, I think she is 15 to CO and knit in garter stitch!!! I've promised to send them some knitter's basics to help get them started! How fun is that!!!

The Traveling Knitter

Hey All! Well, I must say it's HOT in Las Vagas but not so bad when you're sitting poolside! The kids are having a blast and it sure is nice to get away!

Now, I did indeed bring plenty of yarn with me for various projects. Here is a picture, FINALLY, of my Sweet Mary Janes!!! See Jen???

The other day while out with Lesa we came across some sales at Hobby Lobby. Well actually it is becoming popular belief that sales appear because Lesa walks past!!! Anyway, I picked up some cotton yarn to make some Ballband Washcloths. Although I haven't touched them yet, I still have to finish my SMJs. But I piced out some pretty colors.

We also came across some pretty Sinfonia sport weight cotton yarn. It was $.80 per skein! I picked up all they had and was still a few short to make eigther the Mimosa Wrap or the Boobalicious Tank from Big Girl Knits. Lesa popped by before we left for Vegas with a early little birthday gift.....the rest of the yarn I needed! How sweet is that. So for eigther project my total cost in yarn.....$4!!!! Not too shabby! Now I have to decide which project to start....hmmmm! I love them both so much!
What do you think???

Happy Knitting Folks! Thank you, that is all!
