I started teaching classes a couple of weeks ago and I'm really please with how well everyone did. None of my students had any experience with card making and they all did so well on their cards. I don't have pictures of their work but here are the cards we made.
As the weeks go by I'll be posting pictures of more of cards and projects, and will do my best to have a recipe for each item...however, it's already 2:45 AM here so you'll have to forgive me this time.

First up, is the MS7 Shawl, which most people have long since completed and I am still working on. Truth be told, I was diligently working on this shawl through the first clues and then went on vacation back in April and didn't take it with me. (it's my first lace so naturally a quiet time knit) Next thing I know, it's been 3 months since I picked it up again.

Remember the curse I mentioned? Well I think it all started with this shawl, I think it is mad at me for putting it down for so long. Anyway, I am back at it though slowly right now due to these Mystery Socks I've been working on.

I have had to frog this sock 3 times but I think I've finally got it. They are going be very warm socks, they are done in a DK weight and the cable pattern makes for thick socks. I am loving how the colors are working together.
Well that's all for me, next up is going to be some card making I've been doing.

What is your favorite type of project to take along on holiday/vacation?
I like to take small projects with me when I travel, socks or purses usually. I always seem to have a sock on the needles so it's pretty easy to decide what to take with me and I don't worry about not having enough because I like to try and plan a visit to a yarn store anyway so I will invariably come out with more yarn.
What is(are) your favorite place(s) to knit?
Oh this is easy....my office, the couch or any Starbucks!
What supplies (besides yarn & needles) make the setting perfect for knitting?
Other than the necessities (scissors, etc.) natural light and a nice venti Caramel Frappucino make for the perfect setting.

Well I can't say that I've ever really gone on a vacation outside of visiting family. Though I have to admit that DH's family reunion is pretty cool, they all get together for a week near Branson, MO for camping, fishing and fun. I don't suppose I have a favorite vacation location yet.
2) Where is one place you’d like to go?
I'd love to visit Ireland someday, it has always been a dream of mine.

You Are a Frappacino
At your best, you are: fun loving, sweet, and modern
At your worst, you are: childish and over indulgent
You drink coffee when: you're craving something sweet
Your caffeine addiction level: low
They've certainly got me pegged, Frapps are my fave drink!
Yes this is real why should only women do it !ladies i know you like a break from cleaning ,so why not have someone do it for you with a nice view any and all service avaliable. even windows and patios so if it sounds like something for you please contact me scheduling flexible if your married and dont want hubby to watch lol send details of what you need done and ill respond w/details to make it happen thanks email me at *******@yahoo.com
Too bad, hubby says I can't have one, the windows could use a good washing. Maybe this guy does lawn clean up too, the leaves are outta control and I'd LOVE to see the looks on my neighbors faces when they see a nude guy cleaning leaves out of my front yard.

2) What yarn do you never want to be without?**
I think I definitely need some basic Cascade 220 to make my stash more complete. I don't have any at the moment but would love to get some and keep it in my stash at all times. It makes for great felting. And also Noro yarns make a great stash staple in my mind. I just cast on with my last skein of Noro so it's going to be time to do some stashing soon. (right after that lottery win)
I never again want to be without lace yarn or sock yarn.
