Happy 4th!

I hope you all had a fabulous holiday weekend!  My long weekend was busy filled with relaxing things like a pedicure, baking, farmer's market, knitting, purchasing my plane ticket for sock summit, knitting, working out, submitting my class notes for my sock summit class, knitting!  I know, maybe not completely relaxing, but having the time to do it all was nice!

So nice to be able to try a new recipe...Barefoot Contessa's Plain Pound Cake...topped with berry fruit salad and fresh whipped cream!

Happy 4th

This was delish!!!

I cast off my new design for The Plucky Knitter for Sock Summit, and now all I'm thinking about is making one for me!


I'm thinking the top navy skein paired with one of the 3 colors below....hmmm....which one....

That may have to wait though because I'm debating what to cast on for the Kollage Yarns' Irishgirlieknits' Knit-a-Long!!!  Are you joining us??  I love that most of my designs for Kollage would make perfect holiday gifts!


Tomorrow is cast on day (don't worry, you can join anytime this summer!)!  Join us for the group here.

And don't forget tomorrow is the last day to receive 20% off Love Letters with the coupon code: happy4th

Tomorrow is also the Sunshine Yarns HARRY POTTER themed update!!!  Can you tell I'm excited already! 

Ok, time for fireworks....I'll leave you with the doggies....who just weren't into the camera today....too hot for them!



Happy happy 4th!!
