Happy Wednesday!

Hunter & I on Saturday on our way to a wedding in ATL (vow reaffirmation really, The couple was married in Feb 07 before he left for OIF5 & are having their big reception now). We clean up well, huh?







And the Wee One's Monica, well what's been done of it! I'm using Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in columbine for the body & cotton ball for the ruffle. Can I just say, I am LOVING this yarn?! Knits up nicely, is soft, etc. Koigu has a competitor for my affections!!

It's icky outside today (thundering, raining etc) so we're off to Barnes & Noble so the Wee One can play w/ the trains & I can look at some knitting books. I saw the cutest ballet wrap at Carter's yesterday & realized that I didn't like the yarn/fiber from which it was made & that I could make one myself. I found a pattern on Ravelry that should work but I'm going to look at some Debbie bliss books to see what else is out there. And LeslieJ has inspired me to pick up the socks on circs book.
