Sorbet for sweet princess girl

Pattern: Sorbet Minnowknits
Yarn: Manos cotton stria

Here is a wee sweater I knit for my girlfriend's daughter. Her birthday was 2 weeks ago and I almost had it done except for the finishing. The pink ties look sweet all done up. She is such a cutie, I'll have to see if I can get a pic of her with it on.
She was here last week for an evening and her and I had lots of fun in the garden picking flowers and eating lollipop tomatoes from the vine.
I'm waiting for an answer from my principal at the moment as to whether or not my knitting group proposal is going to fly. I asked today and he said he hasn't had a chance to look at it, I'm afraid that doesn't sound good. Keep me and my kids in your thoughts, please everyone!

My fun filled knitting weekend

This weekend I had the luck of enjoying the art of knitting all weekend. On Saturday we had our scissor squad De-stash party of 2006 here at my house. For pics go to Sarah's lovely blog at www.scissorina.com. We had a sweet time and I scored much wonderful yarns and books. I adore all of the friends that I have met through the squad and it was so nice to have them here at our house.
On Sunday I headed into the city with a great group of gals that belong to the Naugatuck Valley Knitting guild. We hit the NYC Knit out and also some nice yarn shops. The Knit-out was cool but had a few too many "I'll elbow you out of the way to get some free crap" knitters, I never knew there was such a creature. Anyways I had a great time was had nevertheless. For pics of the knit out go to Tammy's informative blog at www.deputyknittersblog.blogspot.com. Peace out y'all.
