Whoa. So that relaxed, recharged feeling I talked about last week. Well, thank goodness I felt that way at the start of the week because this was a crazy, hectic week. Pretty eventful here. Let's just say that last Sunday, I had knit one of the baby socks, and that second sock there, well that was all of the knitting that happened since until late last night.
Just pitiful, right? And that cute Uncle Frank hat...pattern should be easy peasy to write-up, but that hasn't happened either.
To catch you guys up, here are a few of the highlights from the week.....
1. First, happy happy news for my sister!!! She got engaged last Sunday!!
Look at these two silly kids! This is one of my fave pictures of them from last Christmas.
2. School started this week....which means the problems, reports, school meetings, and such started rolling in at work. I always know it is the first week of school when my email practically doubles overnight. Fun fun.
3. My mom had a bit of a scare this week with an emergency appendectomy surgery on Tuesday, which led to 3 days in the hospital. She's starting to feel better now that she is home from the hospital.
4. My sister's fiancee graduated from the police academy, which means party time!! And brownies of course!
And although there has been little knitting, hopes for a sweater seemed a bit closer when these gorgeous skeins arrived this week!
Hoping to turn them into a Sprossling!
Other fun mail included the Knitpicks Catalog which featured my Merrily Socks! So cool to see them featured :)
Another cool designing thing....my designer page on Deep South Fibers is looking awesome! I am so excited that they are distributing my designs to Local Yarn Stores!!
So now it is Sunday night and I'm glad to put last week to bed. Here's to a fresh week ahead....September, one of my favorite times of year, is coming right up! And a 3-day weekend! It is going to be a good week.
Just to be sure though, let's have a contest AND a sale!! Time for some FUN!!
