Pomp-A-Doodle Scarf-A-Doodle

Well, things have slowly returned to normal around my house!  Since finishing up my rug a couple weeks ago, I have needed some quick yarn satisfaction.  This Pomp-a-Doodle yarn has got my mojo to flowing!  I LOVE this stuff.  It is so unbelievably squishy soft.  I know were in the middle of summer, and it's hard to think about cold weather, but I have a feeling I will be reaching for this quite a bit when winter gets here.

Isn't it pretty?  I used two skeins and simply did a garter stitch.  You can't get much easier than that. 

They also have this yarn in a  pretty red, which I wouldn't mind knitting up.

I do have plans to start another afgan, which I will soon be beginning.  My nephew has asked me a couple times now if I have started his blanket.  So, with some planning and a trip to Hobby Lobby I will be starting that for him.

In the meantime I am working on a ruffle scarf out of some $1 Big Lots yarn...and it is so neat, I can't wait to share that with everyone!

Monday is almost upon us again....ick!  I have a long day tomorrow and a busy week!  But I am leaving on Friday to head to the Mountains for a long weekend with my family!  I can't wait!

 Phoebe and I wish everyone a great, productive, and happy week!

Party Decorations

 I wanted to share some of our party creativty with everyone.  This is the invitation we made for my folks' anniversary party.

Cute?  I think so.

Now, check out our cake! Pretty looked just like our invites!

And the banner....we put that cricut machine to good use!

The centerpieces were done with layering two kinds of napkins...found where else, my favorite place...HOBBY LOBBY!

And these little wineglass shades were so pretty.  Made from scrapbook paper! Put over a small wine glass with a tea light...and it's a good thing...because after we cut our cake a storm blew out our power!  These were so fun to make, took all of two seconds. You can get the template here

I'll be back in a couple days.  I am knitting up some pomp-a-doodle yarn, and loving it!

I'm here!

And, look at all the company I have had!  Yes, this is my family.  All five of us kids in the same place, a definite "kodak" moment!!  My mom and dad had their 50th Anniversary on the 9th, and we whooped it up with a big ole party for them on Saturday the 11th. 

It was great fun, a lot of work, but so well worth it! 

Now that it behind us, we are sitting back and looking at the pictures and talking about what a great time it was.  And me, of course, well I'm ready to get back to that yarn thang!!!  Meeting the girlz tonight for some knitting time!  I can't wait!
