Weekend Vibes

I thought I’d revive my random mish mash of iPhone picture posts for what I’ve been up to, mostly over the weekend.  I recently finished and blocked this Ceridwen scarf to give my mom.  She spends SO much of her time knitting for her new and soon-to-be grand babies that she didn’t have a hand knit scarf of her own!  I had just under 2 skeins of gray Shepherd’s Wool leftover from my Ceridwen Shawl, so I kept the party going and knitting her the scarf version.  If you want to learn cables, this is a great way to do it.  It’s a simple, repetitive pattern that you’ll quickly memorize, which makes it a good to-go project.   Plus, it’s so pretty all finished!  Especially in my Julie Guyot yarn bowl from Fuzzy Goat.

I was fortunate enough to meet the sweet Leigh Ann Hurst at the shop Thursday morning – we are thrilled to have her gorgeous  handmade Cross necklaces at Maiden South now!

Her crosses are so fun and funky – they’re perfection!

I also finally used a sample of this Smashbox Photo Finish Primer this week for some pictures for our office website.  It’s amazing and now I want a full-size.  It makes your skin feel like silk and your makeup goes on so smoothly.  I need it!

Friday night we met my dad, sister, brother-in-law, and niece at the The Whip at Lake Talquin for supper.  Elah just keeps getting cuter and cuter!  I love her so.

She’s obsessed with looking at fans and lights right now.

We spent the weekend in Bristol with my dad, and I wasn’t feeling up to going with the men folk hunting, so I spent some quality time working on my Rivoletto Cowl in Maisie Daze Fleecery alpaca yarn.

I finished it Saturday night and blocked it Sunday!  It’s SO pretty and such a quick lace knit.

We got home around lunch time on Sunday and I spent the afternoon hanging some things in the nursery, cleaning up around the house, and getting a pedicure. :) Overall, it was a restful, relaxing weekend!  I hope your weekend treated you well, too!
