Motor City Madness

I am back in MI, left TanMan in Florida so he could have one more week of sun, sleep and endless cigar smoking (he is in the process of quitting, but I anticipate a relapse during his week of solitude).

Oldest son moved to the Detroit area for work, so his 4 year old son and I went for a weekend visit. We shopped at Ikea, where they were giving away free gifts - look what my grandson won.




Then we saw this on the way out of the store. It looks like this is a sofa on a roller skate. Wonder if they got the sofa home okay!


I did find some time to work on another scarf, using my new pattern. It is a shop model for A Good Yarn, using their custom color way by Three Irish Girls, called Gill's Night Out. Nice, right?

I plan to post it as a FREE pattern in the next week. Had to get some photos taken and now I think I can put it together and make it available to you!



I need to spend a few days getting caught up on KalamazooKnits business. I'm still waiting for a pattern delivery from my printer, so then I can fill my TNNA orders. I also need to update my website and work on submitting patterns to Patternfish.

Also on tap is blocking a few of my completed items. Can't wait to show you Bermuda! It knit up so pretty.

I worked up these felted flip-flops to show at TNNA, and I think KellyJ and I might reshoot the photo for the pattern with these. Don't you love the hot pink!



I think summer is finally here, so enjoy your week.

IN LOVE with the felted flip-flops. They are gorgeous and look so comfy. Also can't wait to knit the felted baby sandals for my one year old. He may not like wearing shoes but they'll make a GREAT photo op.
