I just put in my first ever online order for yarn tonight from knitpicks, so now I'm anxiously waiting for my delivery. It said approximately 15 business days, I'm totally excited. *LOL*
I ordered the yarn for the pinwheel sweater I'm making for my sister's little baby girl (due in mid Jan.) and the yarn for my co-workers baby boy (also due mid Jan.) and I decided on the Argyle Cardigan for him from Debbie Bliss Special Knits. I also ordered some sock yarn....
I assured the hubby that this purchase was strictly baby gifts and Christmas gifts but I had to get myself a little something too, the colours in arugula looked really fun!! It's gonna be like Christmas when this package comes!!! :-)

I also promised first day of school photos! Wednesday Sept. 12th was the big day and this week was the first full week of school. She goes every afternoon from 12:25-2:55pm so during that time, I've been having nice quite knitting time, house cleaning and socializing with the neighbours and the DH. I think I could really get used to this!
She's been enjoying school so far and has been eager to go every day. I'm also proud to say that she has went to bed 3 nights in a row all by herself after story time with no problems. Bedtime has always been a bit of a battle with us. It hasn't all been as peachy as it sounds (a few tantrums this week) but overall we had a good day today. :-)

Alright enough of this typing, it's back to knitting MY sweater.......

"Till death do us part" Lucky Stitch Markers.

Well, it has been quite a while since my last post but rest assured I have been busy!

This past weekend my DH's best friend and his fiance of 2 years got married. Ron was a groomsman and Paisley was the flower girl and I did the wedding photos so maaaannn was I ever a busy woman (as you can probably imagine). It was a beautifully fun wedding and as the wedding favours they did up cute little frames and attached hershey kisses to it with ribbon and a little heart charm. Clever me came up with a way to always remember they're special day...I made the heart charms (I had 2 of them) into stitch markers. I will always use them and hopefully it will bring them good luck in their marriage together.

Congratulations David & Alexis!!!

I have scrapped yet another sweater and started a new one from Interweave knits Fall 2007. It's the Tilted Duster.
So far it is going great and everything is measuring up. I think I'm more them 1/2 way done too. It's done on 5.5mm needles and is knitting up pretty quick, it's also done in a few pieces so it doesn't seem to be taking as long. I'm not photographing it unitl it's finished, so you will just have to wait and see. I'm very happy with it so far!!

I also found out a few days ago that my sister is having a little girl, so I'm thinking a pinwheel sweater might be a good choice. I've been looking through the knitpicks catalouge.......hummm.... :-)

Tomorrow my baby has her first day of school. Both her and I are very excited. *LOL* I will be taking pictures.
This weekend is also another very busy weekend. It's my nephew Lucas's birthday party on saturday so we will be heading up after school on Friday. It just seems like it never ends these days, there's always something going on.

Finally...Do you think I'd actually end the post without putting a picture of my little flower girl up here????

What colour are you???

This is exact...eeeshh. I love purple. (not sure about the graceful part though, lol)

You Are a Purple Crayon

Your world is colored in dreamy, divine, and classy colors.
You hold yourself to a sky high standard, and you are always graceful.
People envy, idolize, and copy you without realizing it. You are an icon for those who know you.
And while it is hard to be a perfectionist, rest assured it's paying off!

Your color wheel opposite is yellow. While yellow people may be wise, they lack the manners and class needed to impress you.
