What a great gift!!! Happy Anniversary!

05-14-2006, 02:25 PM
:D Thanks, everyone! We had a great day & tomorrow we are going out of town for the day to celebrate. What a great weekend, anniversary & Mother's Day back to back :D

Beautiful yarn Rebecca. I am so jealous. I know if we could afford it DH would indulge me also. Something about having a 6, 3, and three month old just seems to cut into the yarn budget. Are you making Eleanor out of Scarf Style??? When are you starting it?

05-14-2006, 03:59 PM
:D Thanks, Robin. I know what you mean about kids cutting into any & all budgets, I'm afraid all 3 of our kids are grown, with the youngest being 21, and out of the house, so we now have the opportunity for some indulgences :D Although, I must admit that Lonnie has spoiled me all of our married life :inlove:
Yep, I'm doing Eleanor out of Scarf Style. LOL, I have absolutely no idea when I will begin it, it's on my very long project list ;)

:inlove: Congratulations on the yarn & the anniversary!!!

05-15-2006, 08:11 AM
I LOVE your yarn and the colors are fantastic! What a great hubby you have! Happy Anniversary!

05-15-2006, 08:17 AM
:D Thanks so much! He is :inlove: wonderful :inlove: in so very many ways :D We are getting ready to head to Charleston for our anniversary celebration...YAY :thumbsup:

05-15-2006, 08:29 AM
Happy (belated) anniversary! Wow those all look lovely! Bamboo sounds unusal but very interesting =D

05-15-2006, 08:41 PM

05-16-2006, 11:41 AM

Femi, you've never heard of yarn porn?! :rofling: :roflhard: It is what it is :thumbsup:
Charleston was fun! I was so looking forward to checking out the LYS, they have moved to a bigger location since we were last there....THEY WERE CLOSED :verysad: I was bummed, not very bummed bc I don't really need anything...but, you know, one has to check out yarn shops when you go out of town :verysad: It really looked nice, too....LOL, I looked like a peeper, indeed, looking thru the windows in this nice little shop :shock: But, I had to look, I couldn't go in & fondle the yarn, so I had to look @ it :roflhard: :rofling: :roflhard:

Thank YOU, God :D :thumbsup: :cheering: :cheering: !!! My anniversary yarn is yummy, isn't it :D plus, I got shoes & other goodies :D I have the best hubby in the world...I'm so very spoiled ;)

rebecca... enjoy enjoy enjoy!!! such a nice gift & noro is just sooo cool and now that i've seen that Lady Eleanor (i peeked at your blog VERY nice btw) i wanna make one...

so i'm understanding that scarf style is a book (cause i havent found it online) altho it looks like a scarf i saw on knitty... (was modeled on a guy & knittys down right now)... hmmm...

adding another to my ever expanding list! haha

06-01-2006, 05:01 PM
Thanks so much! I do have the best husband in the world ;) Thanks for the blog kudos..I'm a baby blogger, just beginning, so that means A LOT to me :D
Scarf Style (http://www.knitpicks.com/books/books_display.aspx?itemid=30529) is where the Lady Eleanor wrap can be found & yes, it's using the same technique as the scarf you saw on Knitty :D There's also a Scarf Style knit a long (http://scarfstyle.blogspot.com/) which has lots of info :D
Scarf Style remains one of my fave knitting books ;)
