{knit 'n sip}

While in Atlanta, we found a yummy yarn shop called Yarn Garden Knit Shop, for the "good stuff". I've decided that I'm finally going to knit from a pattern and although I have several books already, none had anything for me. I bought this Debbie Bliss pattern book and enough of this yarn (in pale blue (not pictured)) to make this. I'm nervous about messing up but I'm excited to get started. Before starting I knit this scarf (above) for a birthday gift with a beautiful varigated (100% cotton) yarn.
{tea cup swap}
I recieved my second package from the tea cup swap. It came with the prettiest little teacup and saucer, tea, beautiful printed napkins, a notepad (not pictured), and the sweetest note (love your handwriting!). Thank you so much, Sarah!

Oh Joleen, it turned out so beautiful. I have had such a limited amount of time to knit since we came home, but I still adore it and plan on working on my project between classes (and maybe during ;o)) tomorrow. Thank you for teaching me this wonderful art.

You are too gifted Joleen. My knitting is sitting beside me at the computer. I think I am going to take it out and start over. I promise I will finish it...........when, I don't know, LOL. The Yarn Garden was a great field trip for me. There were so many variations of yarns and the beautiful colors/color combo's made me want to learn. Thanks for the lesson. I have many pictures from your trip but I don't know how to get them on my blog.
