Ummmmm

This is how I kicked off my weekend yesterday afternoon!

Just something about getting a nice soothing pedicure while knitting!!! ;op

That's my Stacey Lacey Shawl that is about 75% to completion. In that beautiful Noro Aurora
Thought I would sneak in some quick hand yarn p0rn at 'cha while I have your attention! ;o) I just heart this yarn!

We will see when I will get it done as I just casted on for another project yesterday!

Ooh! Fun & exciting news!

I was the featured blog in the Black Purl Magazine! I was so surprised and thrilled!!

Here is what was mentioned about my site:

"If there was one word I'd use to describe Crimson Purl's blog, it would be "enjoyable." It is as much fun to read the sidebar with all of the KALs, groups, and WIPs as it is to read the detailed blog entries. Stop by and help Crimson Purl celebrate her blogoversary."

Go check out this great online mag!


Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

    Hi Stacey! It was so good to meet you yesterday! The shawl is awesome! So jealous of the pedicure, though!

    P.S. I think we used to email back & forth before... I used to live in Hilton Head, remember? It was a couple of months ago. I didn't think about it until I drove off... :) Funny!

    See you sometime at a KAL.

    --Your newest knitting pal.

    Congratulations on the blog mention!

    Getting a pedicure while knitting... why didn't I think of that? And that yarn... I didn't realize it had glittery bits in it. Now I'm in trouble... it's so beautiful, I want some.
