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.
Another view of the cables while I was blocking it.
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.
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!
