February Already!!!

Well as you can see I have made a bit of progress with my projects that I am doing lol. I am very please with the way that the lace is turning out. I just wish I could knit faster!! I am almost done with the back section of Gianni's sweater and I am very excited about that one. It is my "first" sweater for me. I am only taking 2 classes this month at the LYS. One on learning to knit cables and the other is learning how to use DPN's. Have to save for the "big" weding and reception in May. It will be neat to see my dad in a Tux.

Now as you can see in the next picture Sir Angus is checking out the
2 cakes/balls of Cascade Yarns Quatro #9434. It's a nice soft 100% Peruvian Highland Wool. This will be used for a lace shawl. I will make that for a very special friend who has a serious health issue. This will be light enough for those cool nights in the desert, and can be used year round which is nice. The next picture shows the 2nd panel of 5 tht is part of a throw for my FL friend. I was teasing her. I said yeah I am knitting something for you in your favorite color "GREEN". She hates green but I couldn't resist I just had to bust her up about that one lol.

This photo here shows one of the pieces of jewelry that I make. This particular bracelt is made using red tiger's eye beads and sterling silver link beads and clasp. I am still trying to figure out what I should sell it for. Anyway I am hoping that tomorrow is a better day weather wise. I am not fond of driving in the rain. Oh yes I finally got a TX license. Talk about getting stressed. We ended up going up to the College Station/Bryan area because it was easier to get in and out. The one in Houston was a nightmare and after trying for 3 days to get a road test we headed up north and it was worth the 90 minute drive up. Now I can drive my Christmas present and Michael gets to sit in the passenger seat. I told him if he makes to many remarks or comments I have no issues with pulling over so he can get out and walk lol. Have a great week all!
