Packing...Packing...Packing

I don't have much to show but I have been busy.

I knit this cute hat for Corinne in Chicago.  Looks like the weather is getting cooler up there.  This will help to keep her noggin warm.  The pattern is #300 Berroco Borealis.  It's a unique design.




I've also been stitching on BBD stockings.  I have 12 completed and hanging, these 6 stitched and 18 more in the 'current' stash rotation.  They are such a fun quick stitch.  I like working on them when I'm with friends.  They're not difficult and they're on 30 count fabric.  I can run my mouth, laugh and eat, and not make too many mistakes... LOL


And now I'm packing up for vacation.....a Sister's Stitcher's Paradise week in Park City.  Not only am I spending a week with my fabulous sister's, I'll be meeting new friends for the first time....Loraine, Jolene, Terri, Julie, Deb, Katrina.  I should say 'seeing' new friends for the first time.  I feel like I've known them for ages but I've never met them in person.  We are going to have so much fun.  I should take some simple stamped embroidery pieces to work on while I'm there!!

We may post while we're playing around so stay tuned!!  Hugs and Happy Stitching !!
