A treasure find!!

I found a 1971 copy of Knitting Without Tears by Elizabeth Zimmerman this weekend at a book sale. Hardback. YOu won't believe this but I paid ONE DOLLAR for it. I mean, I never EVER find steals and deals like that. So excited ....

I'm an addict

I'm officially addicted to Ravelry. I'm JillyKnits over on Ravelry if you wanna stop by.

Here's my latest project. It's a display sock for my LYS in the new Noro Sock. not the greatest photo but the colors are really cool.

I've also been finishing up the Monkey socks and working on my Entrelac scarf. Little projects to work on during my lunch break and when I'm not SEWING.

Nevermind on the new blog

SO, although I'm only 25 ... learning a NEW way to blog is just beyond my realm of possibility.

I have been sewing quite a bit lately. I've taken two classes and I'm starting the third round this week. Class is great because it's "free sewing" time. You can work on any project and get the wonderful advice of a seasoned sewer.

I finally picked up some knitting today. I just can't knit during the summer. It's WAY too hot outside to touch wool.

More to come later! I'm back ... I think!

I have been having an affair with this:

This is my FIRST EVER sewing project. Obviously created under the fine direction of my local sewing shop. YAY for sewing.
