More Goodies

Last year the knitting group I taught gave me a gift card to my local LYS. I bought some beautiful yarn and purchased a book with many gorgeous sweater patterns. The book is Knitting The New Classics by Kristen Nicholas. Some how, I can't remember exactly how, I came across Kristen's blog. It is one of my "Daily Haunts." She has such an awesome eye for contrast and color. Sometime in the Spring Kristen posted about her upcoming book, Kristen Knits, and that we could either purchase it from the book store or directly from her blog once it came out. I reserved me a copy on her blog and I just received it. Signed!!!!!!! Inside you can find so many beautiful knits. Many of which are embellished with embroidery. Gorgeous scarfs, mittens, gloves, socks, hats, etc., etc. All very fun and colorful. I totally recommend it. Since I was one of the first to order off of her sight she sent me some adorable post cards sporting pictures of yarn, flowers, and sheep from her farm.

This week is Pastor Appreciation Week. One of my friends from the church gave me this trivet. Isn't it just perfect???????
Tonight I finished Clue 4 of the Secret of the Stole KAL. It is turning out so very beautiful. I love the yarn, the beads, the pattern!!!!!! This is the half way point, only four more clues. At this point my stole measures end to point - 43" and 18-19" in width. Clue 5 comes out Friday!!!!
