Can you believe it is the end of January and this is my 5th post of the year.....as opposed to barely one post per month last year, I would say I am doing better at reaching my goal to post more.
I finished my Jimmy Beans Wool Monthly Blanket, and but them in a ziplock for safe keeping.
I got the shawl yarn...there was an error on the pattern, but I finished it. This will go much faster than the blanket as it is only 20 grams of yarn per month.
Y'all should know I am an Alpha reader (I read the book as she writes it) for Maggie Cole, a romance author. I was her very first reader after she posted in a FB group asking if anyone wanted to be an ARC (advanced copy reader...this is once the book is done) reader...I replied with "Sure! I will!" and it was a great decision for me....since then, I became one of her Alpha readers and I have read all 44 of her books (3 of which have not yet been published).....well, she came to SA and I got to meet her....she is tall! We had a great time at lunch and she had a great girls weekend here in SA with one of her friends.
Here is a screen shot of her post on FB along with a pic of us!
The very next day, my great friend, Ruby was in town.....Last time I saw Ruby was in 2014 and we hung out in Austin....this time we did lunch in the Cibilo area......here we are 9 years apart (please dont mind my million chins)!
Now...to announce my best friend is better than yours.....LOL! I am not usually one to toot my own horn....but...Look at what Darlene got me for my Birthday (yes it is early).....
It is absolutely gorgeous...I was going to make a shawl with just this one color, but once I saw it, I decided to pair it with this Caramel colorway I have....
