Well, it's a good thing I decided to crochet my little lady bug the Anne scarf out of cozy malabrigo worsted this week. We left the house this morning, and she said "but mom, my scarf!!" That's my girl!! So quick and sweet, I am planning on whipping one up for myself in Jade Sapphire 6 ply, why not. This oh so pretty scarf is spreading like wild fire. Girls around the shop are crocheting it out of everything from one skein of Blue Sky Suri Merino to Tilli Tomas' Disco Lights. It's finished in almost a single sitting and you may want to consider it for a gift idea- it's quick quick quick!!

One of the ladies stopped in today and mentioned that she would like to sign up for our mitten class, so just a reminder, the Cable and Bobble mitten class is scheduled for November 13th and the 20th 7-9PM. You'll have a ton of Manos colors to choose from for these warm yummy mittens, plus you'll be learning how to cable and make bobbles- so much fun!! Feel free to call 604-4294 to sign up!!

Crazy kiddies!!

This past week was Scarlett's 4th birthday, I know- for all of you who have been part of the Angelfire Studios' family since the very beginning and knew me when I was pregnant with her, it's a bit hard to believe- time flies fast when you're raising babies, knitting, and having fun. She had all of her friends from school come for a pottery party this Sunday, and boy was it a blast! The girls painted pottery, ate lots of pizza and ice cream cake, and then opened a mountain of presents. I'm so relieved that they had so much fun, especially since she's about to be a big sister in a few weeks.

Jumping to stay warm and posing together- so adorable...

In the meantime, I have been knitting, I just haven't been too good about blogging or taking pictures (been a little tired to say the least). This is the Shawl Collared Jacket from Debbie Bliss that I knit for the baby. I need to knit more, I know- but I've been knitting for the holidays- wanting to get a few gifts out of the way before the baby comes, etc, etc... I used 3 skeins Koigu Kersti for the 3-6 month size- this is the softest yarn in the whole world and knits up like a dream. I love this colorway, I'm really hooked on these greens lately, not sure what that's all about, but for whatever reason, I love it! I have some cargo pants in brown in mind to cast on for, a pattern from Knitty- also so cozy and adorable....

I finished a pair of Malabrigo Loafers from Coco knits for my grandmother, a set of oven mitts and potholders from Noni for my mom,(both of these patterns are available at the shop btw), so I decided what the hey- I'm starting the February Lady Sweater for myself out of yummy Blue Sky Suri Merino- (of course we need some Moving Mud buttons too). It's the perfect sweater for me to wear now and after the baby is born. In fact, what caught my eye when I looked at it originally on ravelry was how cute it looked on a lady who was about as preggo as me!! So there you have it, I have been knitting!! Lord only knows, I'm NOT sleeping!!
