Happy Socks!

Sunday is my 33rd birthday so my sister and I traveled across the state to visit Frankenmuth. First stop: Zeilinger's Wool Mill where I stopped to say Hi to Leah. She was kind enough to give me this lovely socks. I picked up a pound of washed Alpaca which is being blended with my cormo.

Next stop was Bead Haven, Michigan's largest bead shop. I was completely overwhelmed so I just left with a book, Wire Style and a few supplies.I am really new to jewelry making and at this point totally inept (why can't I make pretty stitch markers????) but I think the projects in this book will be totally do-able. I am looking forward to trying anyway.......

My favorite purchase (well, it was a birthday present from my sis) is this book:
There are 26 patterns in this book and there really only one I dislike, and a couple I am only luke-warmish amount. The rest I can not wait to knit!!! I honestly can not wait to cast on my first one. I will finish the mittens first though........

Today is a rainy day here in White Cloud, so I am off to tidy my craft room/office up and do some sewing!
