Heading OUT!

And we're OFF! Well, almost.

First I want to show you what I won last week!

Have you seen Knitcircus? I'm not even sure how I managed to miss them for as long as I have...but I'm madly in lust for this issue...many many things I want to knit, mainly, shawls, hats, mittens and socks. There are other things, too, but those are the main ones for me! Well, I discovered them a week or so ago, and entered a contest. And I WON!!! That's a Spud & Chloe kit for the cute argyle hearts vest you see in the photo. And with it the Family Knits book from Debbie Bliss. Then some cute items, including the needle sizer in the shape of a sheep a sample card of yarn and a Miss Purl notion tin in a lovely Japanese blossom print that is the PERFECT match to the peach and melon and gray-toned yarn of the vest. (A lot of thought went into this prize I can tell you that.)

So at some point this winter, I guess I must now attempt argyle. Why not? Especially with the hearts on it.

Oh speaking of hearts? I had to remake the bed, in preparation for the pet and house sitter to come and you know what that means?

Yup. The Quad Peaks of Tonk

But afterwards, it was all Tonk Luv...

See you in Chantilly!

What a nice prize you won!

Funny how cats like to "help." :-)

Have a wonderful show! I think the prize was a good omen and it tickles me that you won it.

But that shot of Tonk as a four poster tickles me even more!

If I couldn't win, I'm glad someone special I know did.

Our cats love to play "make the bed", too. Sure takes a lot longer when you have to get all the "lumpety-lump-lumps" out.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
