Monday Again?!

Is it Monday again? The time just flies when you are having fun.

We went up to the mountains on Saturday. The weather wasn't the best, but we still had a wonderful day!! We did a little fishing and then took a drive out over the top of the mountain.

As you can see, we ran into some snow. It took twice as long to get down because we had terrible driving conditions. Ah, the pleasures of living in Colorado! I didn't mind, but HoneyBunny hates to drive in zero visibility.
Here is the hat for HoneyBunny that I mentioned briefly in my last post. Modeled by the cutest little boy I have ever seen!! Look at those eyes!!! Anyway, I used KnitPicks Panache in "Coal". It is so soft and wonderful--a great yarn! Then I duplicate stitch and embroidered the spider.

It turned out really good I think--for my first spider anyway.

I got an e-mail today from Zontee Hou--the Marketing Communications Manager for Lion Brand Yarns saying that they wanted to include the story I wrote for their "Knitting Changes Everything" online story collection in an upcoming podcast!!!! It made my whole day! I am so excited! She said that the podcast will be the third week of November and it is on "knitting and crocheting gifts and the best gifts we've given or received". I will be sure to include a link on here so that you can find it when it comes out. Did I mention I was excited?

Happy Knitting!

Nice spider! Where can we read the article you wrote?

The article I wrote can be found on Lion Brand's website, www.lionbrand.com--click on "Newsletters/Stories" then click on "Our reader's stories" and it is called "Knitting Changes Everything". The podcast featuring it won't be until the third week of November. I will put a link to it on my blog when I get the exact date.
