the week is over?

how is it friday already? my floors will be finished by this evening! hurrah!!! 

yes i'm very excited. i promise to show you when it's all done :) even though it's only been 3 days, i can't wait to have my kitchen back! i'll have to wait until tomorrow to get some grocery shopping in though, as the hubs is working nights tonight, and will have to take the car... at least i can clean and purge.

i love to purge. being in a clutter-free environment is one of my fave things. i don't know why, but i've always been this way. during school years,  i couldn't concentrate on homework unless my room was clean and organized.
i'm strange like that. but once i have a clear, and clean space.. my creative juices really start to flow.

am i the only one like this? come on.. tell me i'm not crazy. :) i'm getting so excited for the fall, and for all of the knitting taking place! i have sooo much to show you and to share with you! shall we start with a sneak peek?? ok :) a little while ago, i posted about gauge swatching... and my end result is actually one of the classes i'll be teaching!

this is the begbie cowl by jane richmond. i used big softee. you'll need 2 skeins of this. and my gauge ended up needing the 7.0mm needle. i loooove this pattern! i can't wait to make one for myself! very simple in construction, but the effects are lovely! don't you think so? there are a lot of great colours to choose from! when you sign up for this class at the cloth castle, you'll recieve 20% off your materials! bonus!

this is a quick class! only one session! class dates for this project are offered on sat. oct 29th, and sat. dec 10th.  this is a must have accessory.. and they'd make great gifts come christmas!

told ya, i was excited! if you are in the area, come to the cloth castle tomorrow morning! i'll be in the new knitting "nook" and i'd love to chat with you, as well as show you some of the class samples!

are you looking forward to the weekend? counting down the hours and the minutes? how are you spending this weekend? do you have kiddos going back to school? my little one is not yet ready for that, so we're not feeling those pressures.... yet.... have you started on your holiday crafting? i'm in the mood to chat, come leave me a message!


  1. Ahhh, I keep thinking about how I need to get crackin on the christmas crafting but seriously I keep getting sidetracked. Oh my! I really have to start soon.

    Still I'm hoping to get some more sewing done this weekend I've got 2 more MODify dresses to sew up for myself...plus I'd love to cut out about 15 more ;) Though I'll settle for 2 more to make and even 7 (yes I know 7 is odd but then I'd have one for each day of the week!).

    I also have to make some serious progress on my second sleeve for the KAL...my poor Gooseberry has been abandoned until this one is finished...then I'll start in on a sweater for Lincoln...hopefully for Christmas.

    I'm so ready for school to start so I'll have more crafting time :)


  2. goodness buffy! you certainly have a good excuse! 7 MODify dresses?! that's awesome! does shannon know? ;)
    and you've mentioned a christmas knit, so it's all good :)

  3. Well I've only sewn up 3 dresses & have 2 more cut out. But Husband says I can go out tonight without the kids & I'm hoping to find a few more pieces for a couple more dresses. I love the pattern because it is easy & fast besides versatile...come fall & winter I'll be able to layer them with pants or leggings & a nice jacket or sweater...you could totally make one or 12. I think Shannon knows I've been posting about them a lot on Facebook.
