Happy Blogiversary and New Podcast!

It's been 2 years since I started my blog! (well, it was actually March 31st, not April 1st) I can't believe it! Time goes by so quickly...Woo-hoo for blogging!

The new podcast is up and I'm looking forward to some feedback from it.....can't wait for all of you to listen. Some might hate it, some might love it. We'll see.... It's called "Fooled".

Before podcasting today, Jackie and I went to the Yarn and Fiber Company in Windham for their April Fool's Day sale. Everything was 10-40% off. (We saw Lora and Heather there, too!) Jackie, Lora and I both got only 10%, but Heather pulled 15%! Pretty good!

I got the Alpaca Yarn Company's Winter Wonderland Shawl kit (scroll to bottom) and also a French Girl knitting pattern called, "Daphne"....a knited summer shawl using either Rowan Summer Tweed or Kidsilk Haze. Both will be expensive, so I thought I'd wait and see if I can get the yarns on ebay....I'd like to get white....

I also got two skeins of yarn for something special and tha's about it. We had a fun time just hanging around, talking, squeezing yarn and looking at patterns. I was hoping to get another Ashford Joy bobbin, but no luck this time.

We went out to the Common Man for brunch and it was YUMMY! A nice treat not to cook or clean up! Back home to the kiddies and letting Ian take a break to go geocashing.....

Sounds like a very successful shopping trip! I can't wait to listen to the podcast, but it won't be tonight - I'm beat. Maybe I'll be able to in the morning before work.

Happy bloganiversary! Now, a question for you. How do you choose patterns to knit? Does the yarn choice of the designer influence you? greatings Jenneke

Happy Blogiversary! It took me forever to find time to listen to the podcast but it was worth waiting for. You asked for shawl suggestions and I saw one that almost makes me want to try one. http://knittingasfastasican.com/
