Happy Friday!

A few reasons why it is happy...

1. I took a much needed personal day today! A nice long 3-day weekend is exactly what I needed. I'm looking forward to knitting, sleeping, knitting, sleeping, and reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (I'm on page 260 and loving it!).

2. It is October. That means Screw-You-September is over!! October is definitely going to be a better month, I can just feel it.

3. I can announce this!



Stitches East here I come!

I'll be part of the Kollage Yarns team at Stitches East!! I'm beyond excited! I've never been to Stitches East, plus I anticipate being able to see quite a few of my friends back there!

Speaking of Bellingrath, it has been exciting to see this knit up by other people! Here's a gorgeous one, another beautiful one, and one more fabulous one!


Bugga Bellingrath

I haven't had too much time to work on my newest Bellingrath, but I do hope to finish it by Stitches East! This one is in Bugga!! (and guess who will also be at Stitches East? Yeap, Sanguine Gryphon)!

4. Happy Friday includes lunch and knitting with friends!

Hope you all have a happy Friday too!

Love the little piddle bag! Love the bellingrath. Was tickled when I saw it advertised on Knitty the other day. (seriously it was there!)

Looking forward to knitting it one day soon. g

I wasn't going to go to Stitches East this year because DH is out of town that week for work. But now..... I'm going to have to see what I can work out and try to go! Enjoy your weekend :-)

Oh I hope it works out that you are at Stitches East when I'm there (Friday). I would LOVE to say hello!

That red is just gorgeous!

It sounds like a wonderful weekend. Lunch and knitting with friends would be enough to send me into ecstasy but there is more. The Stitches East event is quite the honor and well deserved! Have fun!!

Wish I could get to Stitches East this yearn. Darn! Maybe if I can ever stop knitting Cotty, I can move on to Bellingrath, or Dotty or ...

What a cute bag! Wish I could make it to Stitches East, but I expect to be... indisposed by then.

I love a good day off. I think I'm feeling a personal day coming on...
