Birthday Time!

Apparently it's Birthday Time!

Two of my friends have birthdays that are very close together  (and to make things really odd, they both knew each other -before- they knew me, but, didn't know that the other knew me until about last year!  Small world!)

So, one friend is getting the prototype of my Raindrop Shawlette;

I will, eventually, post this as my own design to my Ravelry Store, and you can see more about it on my Designer's Blog, but I want to tweak the pattern first before I put it for sale, and that will take some time, considering I'm going to re-knit a second prototype.

The other specifically requested a pair of Dragon Rider Gloves, just like the ones I made for my roommate (except hers are in black!):

I'll present them both at a Birthday party tomorrow night, and I'm looking forward to it!  (No, seriously, this friend throws amazing parties!)

So that's that for now.  It's nice to have a few projects off of the needles (have you seen how many WIP's I have!), and I hope both of my friends appreciate their new knitted things!

Wedding Attire!

So I finally finished the Fairview Scarf.

It may have only taken me, what, one-and-a-half years, but it was worth it.   It blocked out to be taller then me (so almost 6 feet long)!

What prompted me to actually get the scarf done was the fact that my step-sister was getting married!  So, I figured the Fairview would be something I could wear to the wedding!

The wedding was wonderful.  No pictures yet, but number of people were taking photos, so I'm sure there will be pictures online in a short while.  And my new step-brother-in-law (what a word!) is actually a totally sweet man.  He's very kind, rather quiet, and quite a gentleman. 

I didn't get a chance to get a picture of me all dressed up (I suck at taking selfies), so, you'll have to put up with these pictures for now.  While I don't get the 'selfie' culture, I do wish I could actually take a few decent selfies when the time requires it, mostly to show off my knit-wear! But that's another topic for another day.

Anyway, I will offer an online huge 'congratulations' to my Step-sister, who should still hopefully be enjoying her honeymoon as I type!   Congratulations and I hope you two have all the best!
