Yes, you read correctly, I actually finished a project!! It has been a long time coming! I finished knitting and felted the Vintage Bubble bag that I have been working on for quite some time. I used Paton's gray wool merino with the Noro yarn that I received from my ITEIII partner. This is one of my favorite bags to knit! I want to find a fun fabric to line it with and add a snap. Not sure yet where this purse is headed...I have few ideas!

Thanks to all of you for your prayers and concern for Aaron. He's had a bit of a set-back with increased pain again and difficulty walking. I am going to take him to school tomorrow and see how the day goes trying to get to classes. I'll hang around for the day (knitting, of course) and will either leave him there for the night or bring him back home. Still hoping he can get some of his courses completed before the end of the semester.

Ryan and Mallory have set a date....December 29th!! A Christmas wedding! Lots of fun planning and shopping to do before then!

I'm also working on planning Kirstin's open house for her graduation. The one thing I know that we will have for sure is punch. This is the yummiest punch recipe ever.

Frozen Punch

1 - 48oz can pineapple juice

2 quarts water

2 pkgs lemonaid Kool-aid

2 cups sugar

Mix all together in an empty ice cream bucket. Freeze for 5 hours. Stir. Put back in freezer and freeze completely.

To serve: Take out 4-5 hours ahead. To each batch, add 1 liter of Sprite.

(Just don't let Ryan know you are serving this or he will show up and drink it all!!!!!!)

We had the Sunday night high school group here tonight. I made the spaghetti recipe that my friend Sheri at the Loopy Ewe posted on her website. It was a huge hit. (And boy, did the house smell GREAT all day while it simmered away...)

Sumo is LOVING this weather. He and Nikko go out first thing in the morning and stay outside all day. I love it because it seriously decreases the dog hair in the house. Definitely a win-win!!

Not much else new to report. I hope to cast on some socks tomorrow and will keep you posted on any progress!!

Until Next Time.....

Glad you all liked the spaghetti! And hey - you're done working and can knit all day long now, right? (Or... take a trip to St. Lou??)

We'll keep praying for Aaron.

I love your bubble bag. It's really pretty. You always have the best felted bags!

Aaron is still in my prayers and good luck with a Christmas wedding to plan!

happy knitting :)

The bag looks great! The colours look so nice together, too.

I'll be saying some more prayers for Aaron & his back. Back pain is no fun at all.

I've got some exams coming up this week and next, so would covet some prayer for that if you don't mind.

Your bag is so cute.

I'm going to keep sending good thoughts to you and yours for Aaron.

Wow a Christmas wedding! Yay!

Mallory and Ryan are getting married on my wedding anniversary...twenty-three years ago. It was fun having a Christmas wedding although now I can't believe that we managed to get everything together during such a busy season. Hope that all goes well with Aaron and wedding planning to come.
