Hope everyone had a great week filled with lots of fibre arts! I managed to finish all of the little Kleenex cases. They are super cute and highly addictive. Check back on Friday for their big debut. I am close to the halfway point of my Dad’s Windchief. I’m really hoping to squeeze in enough knitting time to get that finished over the next couple of days. I have one project that has nothing to do with the Year of Projects but is for Nerd Wars. It’s fun and silly and more about that in tomorrow’s post!
I also had the wonderful opportunity to meet and chat with Lucy Neatby. I snapped a great photo which I will share you later in the week. But take my advice, if you ever have the chance to talk knitting with this woman or take one of her classes do it. She’s brilliant.
Can’t wait to catch up with everyone. This week has been crazy and I haven’t been able to visit other blog as much as I like too!!!

Your friends new shawl is beautiful, what pretty colours, how lucky for her to hav a friend who gives such good gifts! I have a superior crocheting friend who I really stress about giving crocheted things too, as I wonder if she scrutinises all my mistakes afterwards.
I was just readin your holiday knitting tips aloud to my hubby…brilliant…now that’s him in the picture, just have the three boys to go!

Hmm…Perhaps, I should start participating in Year of Projects. At the very least, I should write out what projects I want to do right NAO and pair them up with yarn that I’ve got.
