Cynthia's Annual Spring Luncheon

Here is part of the gang that came out on April 25th to enjoy the annual spring luncheon put on by Cynthia's Fine Yarn and Gifts in Mackinaw City. An afternoon of friendship, games, sharing, laughter and fun. Plus a preview of the new exciting patterns and yarns in the yarn shop!

Jenny won the big door prize (on the table in front of her) and is showing the bee sweater that she knitted for Avery (first grandchild)!

Jean with her felted "hand bag"!
The hands are felted cutouts traced from her grandchildrens hands. How cool!

Just Enough Ruffles Done

Spring has sprung, well almost. We had some nice days and I was busy working outside, trying to get as much done as I could, before the blackflies come out (that is another story). Hubby and I got the yards cleaned, a whole new yard planted with grass seed and the screen room cleaned and ready for summer and I was too tired to knit. I hate when that happens...I get the lovely yarn out of the knitting bag, get all comfy and there I sit with the project in my lap for hours, not one stitch knitted. We've all been there I guess.

Well the last two days have been almost winter-like. Cold and rainy, perfect knitting weather! And I finally got one of the three projects finished that I started for Malabrigo March in the Malabrigo Junkies group over on Ravelry. Here is my version of Just Enough Ruffles:

As for my designs, I have finished my Mitered Panels Cardigan for Adults (pics to be posted soon) which is based on my Mitered Panels Cardigan for Kids but with a different neck line. This along with Little Dipper, Telegraph Road and a new free pattern (which will also be posted here) will debut this Saturday at Cynthia's annual spring luncheon! How exciting.
