Refocus and Get Knitting!

Well after a year of planning, anticipating and fretting, it's a memory now. But a beautiful memory indeed! The Wynn in Las Vegas did a fabulous job, as well as Maggianos for the reception. I wouldn't have changed a thing! I guess it's back to normal life now and time to concentrate on my knitting and quilting projects.

The past couple of days has been the LYS Tour in the Puget Sound area. In years past, I have gone to several of the shops but this year I was just plain out of energy. I went to the two closest shops to my house and picked up their free patterns. Oh yeah, I also bought the yarn that went with them!! Renaissance Yarns had a lovely pair of fingerless gloves as their free pattern and they had a new yarn to celebrate the occaison called Merisoft, from Punta yarns. It is Merino wool and feels really nice. I chose a varigated turquoise. The Knittery had two patterns. One was a lacy pair of anklet socks made with Trekking Pro Natura. I chose to do these in white. Maybe because of the wedding? lol They also had a scarf that is really lacy and beautiful made out of Silky Alpaca Lace Yarn . I chose the cream color. Hopefully I will be showing some progress on these over the next few months! I know for sure as I knit along I will be reliving a wonderful memory of my daughter's marriage to a wonderful man.
