Yarn PRIZE Friday! I won my first blog contest a few weeks ago at Calling On Kahlo. She had a contest to name her new dog, and my suggestion, Maya, was picked! Yeah! And today, my prize came.....perfect timing!

Yummy Cherry Tree Hill Sock yarn....I can't wait to try this...I've heard such great things about it!

And I've never used Trekking either! Are these colors not perfect for me, or what?! Seriously!

Monica did such a great job picking out my prize (and she even emailed me asking for my favorite yarns, colors, etc.!). Thank you thank you! And Happy Belated Birthday too!

Oh, and Bailey and Puddles wanted to say hi to Maya and the other dogs, too!

In other news, I was visiting new baby nephew this past weekend...he sure is a cutie! And I had to take a few pictures of how my Sister-in-law has decorated the nursery (okay, my brother helped, too, but you know, she has the style!).

Look at how the sheepie blanket is displayed. And hanging on the armoire is a baby sweater I knit right when I found out they were going to have a baby boy (pre-blog). Here's an up-close picture!

Its pretty hot up in Sacramento, so even if little guy doesn't wear this very often, at least I know his mommy uses it to decorate the nursery!

Have a great weekend! xoxo Irishgirlieknits

Oh what sweet doggies! And that baby room is adorable. If I had that sweater, I'd put it on display too.

Yeah! I am glad you liked the prize. I picked one skein in earth tones and one in your blue and brown favorite colors. And everyone can always use a sheep tape measure. Your dogs are adorable! Have a great weekend.
