I can't believe how quickly this week went by. I started out on Sunday, meeting with my knitting group and teaching a refresher course on the basics of knitting. I purchased some beautiful yarn from a fab sale at one of my LYS and went back a second time with my friend, Sarah, to help her pick out a fabulous silk/cotton yarn for her first knitted garment project. The yarn is gorgeous. For most of the week, I took pictures for our VBS (Vacation Bible School) at my church. The kids are fantastic and a few will even ham it up and strike a pose for me.
My DH is a wonderful hubby. To celebrate my day, He took me to a wonderful Italian restaurant in Old Town. We had a quiet evening and enjoyed our conversation with a wonderful Italian meal.
Normally, we see two movies a year at the theater. Today, we're planning on heading to the movie theater to catch the 10am showing of HP. Yes, I did say "10am". I don't think we've ever gone to see a movie in the morning. This should be fun.
On the knitting front, I still have 3 projects going at the same time. It's been hard knitting 3 at a time and they all happen to be the back sections which seems to take forever. In the next day or two, I plan on knitting one project at a time so I can feel like I'm completing a garment much faster.
The back piece of Sage is now completed. Hoping to cast on the front left section today.
Violet is moving right along. I have a few more inches to knit before I start the BOs for the armholes.
In order to move along with Sage and Violet, Charcoal (cabled v-neck top) will be put aside for now. I will more than likely take it with me on my travels in August. It will make a nice Fall garment.
For a quick knit, I will be casting on a Shoulder Shawl that I saw at one of my LYS. I've done some test samples with different yarns. We'll see what I come up with.
I have to share another yarn purchase I made that was 40% off. This Tilli Tomas silk yarn is absolutely gorgeous and couldn't be passed up. DH was happy that I made some special yarn purchases for myself. Saved him the trouble of trying to figure out what to get me.
