No longer a Malabrigo Virgin

I have been knitting cables like crazy. Over the weekend I finished the left front of Mom's sweater. I am trying very hard to get the sweater done so Mom can open it for her birthday in November.

There were snow flakes in the air today. GROSSSSSSSSSSS! I am very glad I finished my gloves last week. They kept my hands warm on the steering wheel today.

This week marks another year older. I have come to realize life keeps getting better the older I get. So this week is a celebration of living life to the fullest.

I met up with Mollylouhoo tonight after work to knit. She presented me with a wonderful bag full of knitting goodies. Inside included my very first hank of Malabrigo EVER. I will have to pet it for a little while before I actually make anything with it. Next is agorgeous skein of Lanaloft. The colors in both of these yarns will blend nicely to make something very special for sure. I have been looking for a special knitting bag and Molly made a donation towards the cause which even included the tag of "Knitting Bag!!!

Thank you very much Molly!

Your mother will be glad when she receive this birthday present. My mom's birthday is at the end of November. I may knit a hat or scarf(just the little knits) for her.
