Cute Title Here

I know - I'm so horribly bad at keeping this updated!

Just a quick rundown -

Loop - Fabulous store with all of the yarn brands you would expect to find in a yarn store located at Utica Square. The atmosphere is cozy, and child friendly. The hours for now leave a lot to be desired - no evenings yet. I will shop there when I can afford the good stuff.

Anniversary - DH and I celebrate 10 years on the 16th, so we're having a party! I'll take lots of pictures - I promise!

Kristel's socks - are inching closer to the toe! btw - did I tell you that I started to decrease once - so that they would end up fitting me? Yeah, I wear a size 6US - so I had to rip back!

The Baby Spiral is about 2 feet across (guessing here) but I need another size 8 addi so that I can work on two needles. The blanket is too bunchy for my taste.

The fish blanket - I've started the 3rd color - so I now have 13 fish completed.

Everybody - don't forget to wear sunscreen when you're getting drunk on the lake and TRY to remember the reason for this 3-day-weekend, K?!?!?!

Friday is a Holiday!

Ok, not really a holiday, but I have the day off - so it is a holiday to ME! I'm going to a NEW YARN STORE! And I'm taking the boys - because they have a KIDS AREA!!! Woo HOOO!

Blue Bell Ice Cream - I'm also going here on Friday. They really do honor the "eat all you can and sell the rest" motto! If they let us take pictures, I'll share them.

Next - On Father's Day, June 19 so you don't forget, I'm getting a new dad! My mom has found the most amazing guy to finish her life with and they'll get married on Father's Day. In her words - he might be the 3rd, but he's definately the last!

Spiral Baby Blanket

This is the yarn I ordered from Danielle at No No Kitty Yarns. That is a link to her blog, where you can find a link to her store.

The pattern for the blanket can be found here.

You can see some completed spirals at the Gallery hosted by Larissa at Stitch Marker.

DB Cashmerino Aran - Again

Does not give you six fish - it will give you five fish and one tail-less fish! But, all is well! I'm going to work the tail of the sixth fish in all of the DB colors that I have with my Two Pointy Sticks Superwash Merino in the Waterlilies Color. Not quite as soft as the Cashmerino, but I am on "A NEW KIND OF YARN DIET DIET" and therefore can't go buy more! I'm also going to seam it with the Two Pointy Sticks Superwash Merino in the Waterlilies Color.

I will be a good tie-in to the rest of the gift - a children's book.

Can you guess the name? That's right! Rainbow Fish!

A Recipe for FISH

I'm taking this down for a while. I've got some ideas in my head that I need to explore further.


I've found the Fish Source -

But, alas, it is from an unavailable Knitters Magazine, Issue 51 (summer 1998) and created by Paula Levy.
