Happiness is Friday

And sunshine doesn’t hurt either!

These are the things I am happy about on this Friday:

1. Friends. Here is one of my favorite pictures from sock camp. Carrie (Irishgirlieknits), Debbi (cockeyed) and I all made the same infinity scarf out of one honkin’ skein of yarn and called it our BFF Traveling Scarf.  It’s a great pattern: Kollage’s Pont Neuf, designed by Irishgirlieknits (of course) and knit in BMFA BFL Sport in True Blood Red.

And here’s a close up of the stitch detail:

2.  Today the final clue of my Spring Blooms Mystery Sock KAL was released.  Over 60 knitters are currently knitting the sock!

As a thank you to all those who have made my first KAL a great experience, I decided to put my patterns on sale…call it a Spring Sale.  Head over here and enjoy 20% of my patterns for the next 2 weeks.

3.  I am REALLY excited about my next design,  a one-skein shawl.  The swatching is done, the design is done, and soon the prototype will be too!  I am using Socks that Rock lightweight and Valley Yarns Charlemont and can’t wait to finish.  (I’ll be looking for test knitters soon.  Let me know if you are interested!)

4.  Reflecting on my week, I am still glowing over my “me time”.  I actually carved out time twice this week to have lunch with women whose lives are running parallel to mine.  You are an inspiration to me!  You know who you are!!!
