It's Friday!!!! YAHOO!!! It is also Labor Day weekend, which is much needed because we are THREE!!! weeks and counting from our wedding. . . Don't panic right? Tom's been calling around and we are just finishing with a bunch of last minute stuff. Yesterday we started to plan out trip, and yes there will be yarn shop stopping :) haha, though I wish we had more than a week, but that just means we'll make the best of it!

Now, my last WIP's for you, well one WIP, a pair of socks for Tom. I know it looks like a sleeve for a sweater, but, he likes the upper part of the sock longer. . . his socks his choice. They are really for his birthday which is next weekend, so he obviously knows about them. 

Malabrigo Worsted is probably one of my favorite yarns to use. This will be my third time using it, and boy do I love it. It's hard to tell with the poor lighting that I had last night, but this is a cream-camel colored yarn. Really pretty. 

Okay, so I don't have a ball winder. I have been dropping hints for one for awhile. But after visiting my LYS Wool and Honey, and Melissa the wonderful owner, rolled the yarn up for me, I am in LOVE!!!! I want to take all of my yarn stash to her to roll it hahaha, trust me if there weren't any wedding expenses going on and my man's bday, I would totally be plunking down some coin for one! 

But I will patiently wait. 

Happy Friday everyone!!
