Still Updating My Stash on Ravelry

I have a very BIG yarn stash. Most of which existed before Knit 'n Knibble did. I have been adding it to Ravelry since November. I do a whole bunch and then get bored and quit.

With Vakara coming to stay with me for 2 weeks I have to get all the yarn out of the guest room so she has a place to sleep. So that has been an inspiration to get it done. But even when I get all of what I moved to the room done I'll only be about 1/2 or 3/4 done. But every little bit counts. At least I'm getting a better understanding of what I have and where it is stored.

Next I have to inventory my needles, crochet hooks, .........


Slowly, but surely!

I forgot to tell you that S.E.X. stands for stash enhancement experience. And it was!
Vakara will be he in 2 weeks and will have her first knitting lesson. I really hope she likes it.
Well I am very tired and have a bunch to do tomorrow so I will sign out for now.

I went to Knit 'n Knibble for S.E.X.!!!!!!!

I must admit,I stole that line from NamasteJulie.

Knit 'n Knibble had their 2009 Anniversary Sale on Saturday. I was one of the top 50 purchasers for the previous year. That gave me the privilege of private shopping on Friday ($305 and change) and then went back on Saturday and because I was on of the first 25, I got a coupon for an additional 5% on yarn purchases. Good thing, too, since I spent another $328.

I also won a door prize: A cardigan kit from Reynolds that had 15 hanks of Ole! Ole! and the pattern. Really nice.

Most of that yarn has been added to my "stash" on Ravelry. And while I adding that I also added some more of my previous stash.

I really need to retire so I can concentrate on my family, Yorkies and knitting.

Well have to make plane reservations to fly to Kansas to get my granddaughter. She is spending 2 weeks with me in Florida. Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Catching Up!

Been super busy! I'm getting ready to have my only grandchild stay with me for 2 weeks without her Mom. I'm so stoked!

We are going to Cypress Gardens Adventure Park and she is going to have a private knitting lesson at Knit 'n Knibble. Then there's swimming and Yorkie puppies and Disney World when her Mom comes for a couple of days. My granddaughter hasn't been to Disney World yet.

Last weekend we saw Lynyrd Skynryd in concert. That was a hoot.

I have completed some knitting projects and have taken several classes at Knit 'n

More later, on to an exciting summer!
