A New Love...

I have been spending a lot of time with this

                                 ...Cascade Quatro 
(color: 9432). 
This is my first experience working with (any type of yarn from) Cascade and I have to say,
I love it!!! 
I really can't wait to try other yarns from this company but at the moment I am a huge fan of Quatro. 
I got this yarn as a birthday present from my husband...he really knows the way to my heart! I went on a search for just the right pattern to use for this yarn and finally I came across the Saroyan (a scarf/shawl type of thing) by Liz Abinante on Ravelry. It is a perfect match. The yarn is a pleasure and the pattern is fun and knits up really quick. I am on the last stretch of the pattern so there will be FO pics real soon!

Roses Are Red...

                      HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!

Does it get any better than enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir, a box of chocolate and working a luxurious red cowl on the needles for Valentine's day? Well, only if it's paired with a steak dinner and an evening spent cuddling on the couch with your better half watching movies!
Hope everyone had a day filled with love and of course lot's of chocolate. XOXO

You May Have Noticed...

You may have noticed some new things about this blog...
Let's start with the header. This was designed by my husband. I said I needed a logo and he provided.
What can  I say, he's pretty awesome!
This of course prompted a color change. The side bars I think will end up black but for now I'm just using bloggers template. It goes well, so I can live with it for a bit.
This leads me to discuss the other addition which is my button. Obviously it has my new logo for the image and I would be honored if you grab it!
The last thing I want to discuss is the addition of the podcast link. This is brand spankin' new so there isn't anything recorded yet. It was "born" late last night and I'm still getting familiar with how things work. However...I plan to discuss my current projects, likes/dislikes about said projects as well as other creative paths I take. I am also considering some videos for the podcast as well. Maybe some how-to's...not too sure. As I said this new. At any rate, I hope you like the new additions. Once there are some actual recordings, I welcome all comments and suggestions pertaining to the podcast. It's important to give your viewers/listeners what they want so don't be shy!
