Back to Boot camp!




Back to the old boot camp today. It sure was cold and dark at 5:30 am, however nothing compared to what wednesday and friday with zero temps will be like. I still can't believe there is a group of girls an hour earlier than us!!!! CRAZY!!!!! I mean that's commitment for you! So I am sore already. I finished the Faerie knit cape this weekend. I had soooo much fun needlefelting the brooch. Too much fun if you ask me! I was very happy with the way this cape came out. I think it would be lovely for a wedding- wish I would have made myself a bridal cape for when we left the reception, Memorial day was still ccchhhillyyy here in NJ. I am thinking to expand the bridal line this year. On another note, while I was in Pins and Needles in Princeton the other day (my FAVORITE LYS) I decided I would make myself a shrug. huh, what a novel idea. Of course the color Rowan Polar I picked out she did not have enough of, but lucky me my husband's Uncle gave me a gift certificate to yarn market :) Yay! The yarn came super fast via UPS and I am itching to get started so I can wear it!! I also made a funly cowl with the very loved pooch. I am under the impression that this yarn is on it's way out. Oh My! what will all the gals who use this as scarf decoration do?!? Anyhow, it was in my stash along with some funky cascade yarn that I purchased a boat load of a couple of months ago and have finally found a great winter idea for it. Add one of the huge, funky, handmade wooden buttons and you have what I think is a Super Fun and Funky cowl (is that too many funkies in a row??). I almost want to keep it for myself and I love the way the photos came out. I named it the Carribean knit cowl. The colors are so Carribean in nature, I feel like I am back in St Lucia hanging out in the little tents by the ocean....Ahhhhh....can I get another frozen drink?

These are both so lovely! And I admire your courage, commitment and tenacity - I can't be pried out of bed at 5:30 for anything, let alone boot camp. :)
