Surprises!

I received a surprise package from Barbara Bretton of Romancing the Yarn and Fresh Content Daily...Maybe.  I had entered a contest in June and was excited to hear that I had been one of the lucky winners.   She sent me a skein of Austermann Step with Aloe , 2 skeins of Regia and a signed copy of her latest book Just Desserts.

She also has a new book Casting Spells scheduled for release in November.  I have already pre-ordered my copy and I think you would like this one Chris.  Thank you Barbara and I am looking forward to starting the book and knitting socks!

I finished and gifted the ChicKami that I knit for my sister's birthday last week.  She was excited and I just hope it fit.

Eden Madil  100% Bamboo in color 629

Size 3 (3.25mm) and Size 6 (4mm) needles.

Started June and finished August 5.

This is a great pattern and the bamboo yarn is very soft but I am afraid it will snag.  I guess time will tell.

We have had a relaxing weekend and the weather had been so much cooler(87 instead of 97).  I bought a basket of peaches with the intention of making an old fashioned cobbler but time has just gotten away from me.  Have a great week!

Congrats on your win! I won in that contest, too - I got the same book, some Trekking, and magnets for Casting Spells. You're right - I'm looking forward to that book. :)

Cute tank!
