fetching was smashing

Ash loved the really soft and equally stylish finglerless gloves I made her for her birthday last night. Handmade gift giving...there is nothing like it. We had a lovely eveing filled with tons of side splitting laughter and fresh strawberry shortcake!

nothing like french press coffee on a sunday morning.

i love waking up and drinking my awesome coffee on a lazy Sunday morning. i reserve french press coffee for weekends something about it makes me only want it when i can drink it at home--not in my car rushing to school.

i've been knitting a present for one of my best friends her birthday is the 29th of April. I am so proud that I actually thought this out and will hvae it totally finished for her birthday! this might be the first time ever.
i am also doing a bit of stash knitting with some thrift store old timey Wintuk (by red heart acrylic)not all that exciting but the color is great and the cables look pretty in it.

with the extra cashmerino from the first pair of 'fetching' i can't wait to make myself a pair. if you haven't tried these they are the fastest knit ever and just gorgeous. i'm in love.

starting to knit again.

i'm afriad i'm starting to knit again and that is the new reason for not doing school work on time. all i can ever think about is knitting--this is the reason for my somewhat non-existent knitting status. it feels so good to pick up needles again and tear out stitches until everything is just as it should be.
