My PRGE package arrived!!

It was such a nice treat to have my PRGE package arrive yesterday! And I can't tell you how good the box smelled with the blackberry tea!! My pal, Requim, really spoiled me with treats from her home. There were yummy chocolates (good thing I got the photos before they disappeared), beautiful green yarn to felt into a tote - and we all know how bag crazy I am right now, stitch markers for larger needles :) and the yummy blackberry tea. It snowed here all day today, so there was a lot of tea drinking this afternoon... Thank you Kirsten!!

Merlot mitts and almost hat

Mr.sunneshine and I left for a long weekend last weekend. We were going wine tasting, so I decided it was the perfect chance to make the pink and burgandy mitts that had popped into my head. I had some of Vicki Howells silk bamboo that I had purchase, that was begging to be knit so with the pattern from the Majolica childrens sweater in a Fall 2006 IK, I had the mitts finished before we arrived at our destination. They have been worn for a solid week - I forgot to photograph them earlier, oops. Thankfully, I brought another project, too.

I kept looking at all the left over yarn and decided to make a hat with a whimsical pattern to go with the mitts. It looks like, with two skeins of each color, I will just barely finish it :) And as an added bonus, it matches my Northface jacket from last year...

And the trip, was relaxing and wonderful. We rented bikes, rode through town, saw some friends and just decompressed...

Happy KNitting!

Halloween was fun! I LOVE this holiday... Being something that you are not able to be every day, giving out candy, cute little kids all dressed up, big kids all dressed up - too much fun!

Here are a few photos from Halloween with some of my co-workers...

There will be knitting soon...
