what do you feel like?

I feel like a chicken running around with its head cut off! Alright, maybe not. There's probably some moral obligation to not say that statement when you are a vegetarian (which I am). I feel like something similar to that, but without the hurt animal part.

I've been busy putting together giveaways and knitting like mad! I've also recently taken on a couple of test knits (don't worry they have different starting and due dates). I'm quite excited about doing these test knits, because the patterns look wonderful! Are you curious yet? Well, bwahahaha! You'll have to wait and see, because they are Top Secret of course.

If you follow me on Twitter than you probably already know that I'm currently knitting a secret shawl project. I've posted a couple of sneak peaks if you'd like to check them out. Plus, if your not my friend on Twitter yet, you should totally do that!

Starting today I'm headed out on the Puget Sound LYS Tour. I plan on spending the next 3 days trying to go to all of the 25 stores on the map. I'll be Twittering the whole experience (totally another reason why you should be my friend on Twitter). My sweet hubby will be keeping me company tomorrow, Saturday my wonderful and only knitting friend, Pavla, will be with me, and Sunday I've talked my younger bro into going with me. This'll be my first time doing the tour and I'm stoked!

I'll leave you with these darling pictures of my finished Cedar Leaf Shawlette, which my little girl modeled for ya'll. I thoroughly enjoyed this shawlette pattern and would highly recommend it.



















Have a fantabulous weekend and as my LYS says, "Lots of hugs and stitches!"

lol, a vegetarian as well but yes , i often feel like the headless chicken! Actually yesterday it felt like the head just fully exploded with news of computer screw up's with daughters new college for this fall, which if they refuse to fix their screw up's may cost us up to 20K by the time she finishes her education, fingers crossed!

I so wanted to do the puget crawl, did the south sound's last weekend. But alas, i have no desire to sit alone in traffic across the water from home, hubby working late tonight and i offered up hand massages at our knit in tonight at the lys. Have fun though!! Maybe you will get a chance to win a fun door prize!

Your daughter is so darling! I love her pics! Love that shawlette too! So how did the LYS tour go? I did the South Sound one, but skipped the North one this year...

Your shawl is beautiful! I was recently working on the same pattern, out of a hand-painted yarn, but ran out of yarn with about 5 leaves to go :( Hopefully I'll figure out a solution before next fall because seeing yours complete makes me really want mine!
