Valentine's Weekend

So.. A Happy Belated Valentine's Day to everyone!! We had a very quiet one around here. Steve came down with the flu on Thursday, which pretty much ruined the weekend he had planned. I had arranged for him to go to the La'Abri Conference this past weekend with his good friend, our Pastor, as his Christmas gift. He was SO disappointed that he had to miss it. Maybe next time!

On Saturday, I watched the mailman stop at our mailbox and joked about how he was probably leaving me lots of Valentine's. Then, he came driving down our driveway and delivered this Valentine's box from my friend Sheri!! What a very fun surprise!! She had put these Valentine Kits together for The Loopy Ewe and I had been so bummed that I had missed out when they went up for sale at her shop. Now I have one of my own. Lucky me!




I did get to curl up some this weekend and knit. I finished the striped alpaca scarf. I was getting very low on the blue yarn and had just enough for the fringe. Not even 3 inches left of my skein!!
Not sure yet who this is for. I have a few ideas....








Sumo would prefer I give it go him. It is so soft and yummy. Maybe I'll just have to make him a little sweater or something.....









Sophie tries to be still and enjoy these lazy days. But you can see in her eyes that she would much rather be outside chasing a ball or the frisbee or stalking a llama. Sumo, well, Sumo has perfected the fine art of sleeping 22 hours a day. It's a dog's life!!!












Until Next Time.....

Gorgeous kit! What a great valentine gift! I was on the site when they went up but alas my wallet couldn't handle buying one. :)

I'm sorry that Steve got sick, so you all missed out on a Happy Valentine's Day. That's a bummer!

My guys were all away for Valentine's Day, ice fishing, working on Boy Scout merit badges, etc. The timing wasn't the greatest, but that's when most people could go. The good news is that they had a great time. Both my middle & youngest son were thrilled to catch their first fish, and that is was done ice fishing. Yikes, that's not for me - cold & ice & I are not friends. :-(

I hope that Steve is feeling better. I didn't get one of the Valentines kits but it truly is pretty.

Sumo looks darling in the scarf...and maybe a little resigned. Your Loopy Ewe gift looks so fun. I haven't gotten anything fomr the Loopy Ewe for quite a while. I think that may be because I sent overboard last summer.

I love when it works out and you aren't left with just a few yards of yarn that is too much to toss but not relly enough to do anything with. Love the scarf. Hope everyone is healthy now.

We have been to the L'Abri Conference before. The lectures are fantastic. The last time I went I think I was the only knitter so maybe we will see you there and have a knitting group.
You can order the tapes of the lectures for your husband. My husband likes to listen to them.
