Wonderful weekend

I had a great time this weekend! I was lucky enough to visit with Brett, Denisa, baby Jesse, and Pete which was such a treat since I haven't seen any of them in close to 9 months. Baby Jesse is such a loving baby and he seems to have a very sweet, good-natured disposition. He is about 6 months old and is just as cute as he can be. I will have to say that Pete did not get to see me at my best as I was a tad sleepy on Saturday as I worked until 3:30am. The only downside to spending time with my friends is that it always makes me question why I stay in central Illinois instead of moving to back to Indiana! It is such a treat to have friends that you can just hang out with and have the best time with no need to do something the whole time you are visiting!

I can't wait!

I just discovered Knit Picks and I was a little bit shocked at their yarn prices; who would have thought you could get a skein of lace weight yarn for $2.49? I restrained myself to ordering the color cards for the lace weights instead of buying several skeins of yarn despite the urge to go crazy! I did order 2 balls of DK weight yarn that was only $1.99 a ball but since the color is basic green and I like pretty much any shade of basic green I was willing to risk the possibility that the color I saw on the monitor is a little bit off from the actual color. I also downloaded a couple of free patterns for lace shawls. Now that I have the shawl made out of a bulky yarn, I would like to tackle making a lace shawl. I know that I will probably have problems with procrastinating when it comes time to block the shawl but, as always, I will forge ahead! Now I just have to wait patiently for my order to get here.

Oh the places I've been...
