Tickle Me Tuesday

I have been trying to decide over the many knits to plan for Stitches Midwest. So here are a few that I am loving! So check out Sarah's lovely blog for more!

The Arctic Circle Cowl is just adorable and is new from the Fibre Company. It uses Tundra which is one of their newest yarns. Honestly, I'd love to try it! 

I love cowls-(duh Kelly we know that by now) and honestly, the gals at the Fibre Company seem to understand what I like. So Avery is adorable, plus it's a free pattern!!! Cannot resist!

I have two cardigan's under my belt. So a sweater must be easier? Right?? We I don't care, the Shellseeker is a must for me! It's striped, and has pockets! A winner!

The Stripe Study Shawl has been on my favorites list for a long long time. I think it is time that I buy some yarn to knit this lovely up!

Happy Tuesday!

Knitting News

Yup, that's right! I am super excited to announce that I shall be attending Stitches Midwest! I have wanted to attend this event for three years! But I never had the group to go with. This year however, two other crazy knitters have decided to join me on this trip to knitting heaven. 

My ravelry queue is getting full of great ideas for last summer early fall knitting. I have mentioned this before, but it's been awhile, I am returning to school this fall (yikes!!) to get my certificate in Dental Assisting. I currently hold a B.A. in English. . . haha, as you can tell that's not the same or even close! Yeah, unfortunately, a degree in English doesn't really get me far in our small city. I don't ever regret earning this degree by any means, it was a great accomplishment in my life, but honestly, I want a little more than what I am doing right now. I want to be able to contribute more to Tom and I's lives. So it's back to school, which means, I need to buy all the yarn I need now while I still have the chance! Haha!! (I've been saving my pennies)

Anyways,  Lyn, Allison and myself will be traveling down Friday afternoon getting down the Schaumburg rather late, but just in time for the PJ party (yes that's right, but I'm too chicken to wear silly jim-jams, so basics for me) and then Open market all day Saturday for Allison and me, while Lyn takes a few classes. Sunday, another stop at the Open Market, (we are staying at the hotel that Stitches is at, so the temptation is all right below us!!!) and heading home :) 

I'll make sure to post photos!

Craft Show 2012

Okay, I know it's been awhile-I have the craft show to blame :) 

Here are the photo's for the 2nd show!

It was a great show! Very very warm this year, but still a lot of fun. Thank you to everyone who stopped by! It was a blast.
