Zig-Zags and Laughter

Scrap Happy Zig-Zag Blanket done!!  I finished it while at SAFF this weekend (which was a blast - see below!)  I can't tell you how much fun this was to work on.  There were a good amount of ends to weave in, but it was so worth it!!!!
What do you think???  Definite keeper!!
Phoebe totally approves!!

This weekend was SAFF, so our group of girlz piled up in the truck and headed to Asheville for a weekend of yarn, food, and fun!!  I have never laughed so much in my life!!!!
First off, the fall color was amazing!!  How perfect!  This year about ten of us rented a cabin on Swannanoa Mountain. 
Just look at the view!!!!  The air was crisp and cold in the morning and evenings, while the days warmed up, we couldn't have asked for better weather.
You can shop til you want to drop...then find a seat and put your feet up and knit awhile!!  
My girl Mel scarfed up these cute little sock monkeys. 
How cute is this!!!  Annie couldn't resist it.
I'm still drooling over this.
These girls are a hoot!!
Monkey enjoying some McDonald's fries!
I came home with this cool Lantern Moon bag full of yarn!
Some beautiful hand dyed!

So now that I'm home I am off the entire week, and have plans to just lay back and enjoy the time off.  And of course, do a little knitting and crochet!

Everyone have a great week!
