Thought I'd try to get this together despite my managled hand. This is the bead I wanted to use with the raspberry garnets and labradorite. Decided to use just silver since I don't have a single silver necklace. I think it turned out OK despite my awkward use of the pliers. Let's take a vote on the dangling chain with the leaf. Leave it or ditch it? I did start the small triangle shawl before I was injured;) but haven't knitted anymore for a week since the yarn catches on either the flap of skin or the band-aid. So gross! Do you like it so far. I love the yarn but am wondering if it would look better used in a simpler pattern. Like a moss stitch shoulder shrug?? Opinions, please.
Hope everything is rosy in your little corner of the world. Love~Patti

A Few Highlights From Our Weekend!

Lunch break. Zack has his eye on our gelato.

Zack takes time out from fabric shopping for a snack.

How nice of those sheep to line up like that for the picture..

Speaking of snacks!

Have You Seen This Book?-plus a bonus

The Yarn Harlot talked about this book on her blog so I requested it from the library to see what it was all about. I had to wait for it because it was on order but I got to to be the first person to crack it open. It seems to have some good patterns. The patterns are sorted by yarn weight. There are some lace patterns, Erica. Kristen sends the best packages and they always come as a surprise! This is a birthday/Mother's Day package. The necklace is so cool. It is an old needle case!! Mix and match perfume, a change purse for all my money, shopping bags so I don't pollute the earth and one cute hippo. Thanks, K!!
Love, Patti
