A Fine Weekend Indeed

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  It was a pretty nice one around here.  It stopped raining so the doggies indulged me for pictures.  Beware, cuteness ahead...






My sister made her delicious Irish Soda Bread! Heaven!  Perfect treat for after Corned Beef and Cabbage.


Since the rain held off today, I thought I'd share a few more things from Stitches West. On the last day, I couldn't resist these two lovely skeins of Hazel Knits Artisan Sock.


Woodlake and Hoppy Blonde. Fitting for St. Patrick's Day weekend too, don't you think? I just can't decide if they should be used together or not. I just love them together!

And probably my favorite purchase from Stitches, this needle case organizer from Namaste (available at The Loopy Ewe). OMG! I should have gotten this sooner!


Finally. Organized.

My circular needle case had grown a bit unruly due to the many needles I have. SO then they just were thrown in a bag, at least the ones that no longer fit in the case. So traveling between my house and dad's I felt like a packrat if I wanted to bring my needles. Instead, they all now fit in this petite case?!?! I seriously love it!  There is even room for more!

Okay, I think I may need to go have one more piece of Soda Bread before I get back to healthy eating tomorrow!  Oh Monday, please be kind.

Happy Knitting!

I love your new Artisan Sock skeins, and they do look smashing together!

I almost picked up a skein of hoppy blonde too! It's such a pretty color.

I am absolutely drooling over that yarn!

I have -- and love -- that needle case. It has worked really well for me.

I would use them together - they look amazing.

I love Hazel Knits! The artisan is a great sock yarn! And wow, do I love that circular case. My circs are out of control and that would be the perfect solution.

Question about the circular needle case - can you fit more than one needle in each compartment?
Like a size 2 16-inch, and a couple of 24-inch etc?

Anonymous...YES, the case expands a bit like and accordion file. I have multiple circs in each section and every section filled.

Love the sock yarns. I agree you should knit something with both of them :) I've contempleted that case, good to know you can store more than one in the pockets. Would be nice to have mine in a smaller file. :) Hoping not much longer for you and them there crutches!
