Earth Day 2010!!
James planted six trees this past weekend! They're beautiful, they provide shade, consume CO2 (that's good), and they produce oxygen. Bought more plants to plant too! Also doing a lot of cutting to make more and more trees! We recycle...we use earth friendly cleaning products (vinegar)...compact fluorescent bulbs in the house...to name a few!
Happy Dogs on Thursday too!:)

On a side note was able to get back to swim today...took it easy and worked out in the pool for about 1/2 an hour...felt so good to be back in the water sniffing chlorine! Also finished the preemie hat I was testing out the square needles on. Wish the cable was a wee bit bigger but love working with them. I do feel like I'm going to rip that cable right off, don't know why but it just doesn't feel that strong to me! The needles are guaranteed so I guess if I do we'll see how there customer service is!
Mother's Day is just around the corner....great gifts for Mom's at wolfefarms.net!

Hung out at the lys this past Saturday....hadn't seen the "Grannies" in a few weeks! Had a great time catching up on things. Bought these rainbow of colors to make the Marley hat, it should make a couple of hats with all this yarn, can't wait to cast on for it! Need to finish the Hemlock Ring Blanket first though! Went home for lunch and Angie texted me that they got in glass (pyrex) dpn's! Went back to the yarn store to try them out (just down the street from me)!:) They are awesome! Casted on a preemie hat to test them out. They didn't screech, the yarn grips well to them, they're not slippery, knit really well! I'm used to my dpn's being 6in. long but these didn't hurt or bug my hands. They also have straight glass needles too where you can choose from the beautiful toppers and have customized to your liking. Also they have crochet hooks too which are fabulous! I've tested them all and they are all fun to knit/cro with!:)
April 24 between 2-6 the Grannies are starting a knit/cro/spin time....looking forward to hanging out and having some fun! So if you're local come on over and get your knit on!:)

Solvang, CA 93463
Tel: (805) 686-1192
This is the same store that I bought my wheel at last year. Extremely wonderful service....last year they spent four hours with me testing out wheels and then another four hours when I went back and purchased one. Tons of fiber to choose from, wheels, looms, books, yarn, notions.....
This time I had to pick up some fiber...of course I went for the greens at first but decided a different color would be best!:) This is a salmon color merino...soooo soft!

Our Wrapped in Hugs and Kisses Crochet Pattern was created by knittinwolf and crocheted for her Grandma Wilma as a gift for her 90th birhtday. She is the one who taught me to crochet so thought it fitting to design a crochet pattern. The stitch pattern make Xs and Os, hence the name “Hugs and Kisses”, so wrap yourself or someone you love in hugs and kisses.
The finished wrap measures approximately: 72 in. by 16 in. Crocheted with worsted weight, required approximately 945 yards.
This will come to you as an emailed PDF file, so you won’t have to wait long to get started.
