How hard is it....

to get a coffee order right? I made my regular stop today at Tim Horton's - ordered my regular large coffee, double sweetener and milk with a toasted
cinnamon raisin bagel and what did I get when I had my first big sip at the shop? TEA! Urrrrrr!

I have some finished sweaters to share!
This is the Adult Tulips - and I must say I love it! I didn't think I would like it with the colors I picked but the sweater really comes together with the trim etc. I used Cocoa Kiss for the trim and for the 4th color but two different dyelots.

I'm madly in love with Dream in Color yarn - I've planned another Tulips, another Lucy in the Sky Cardigan and another Baby Surprise Jacket for Quinn.

Here's Imogen from Perl Grey knit for the shop by Angela. The colorway is Cosmic Dawn - it's really nice too! So nice, in fact that I've ordered lots more for the shop and of course, one for me.

I'm here all alone today so it was a good time to blog - I really need to blog more regularly, don't you think?

Finally A Big Tulips!

Happy New Year to Everyone! Here's what I spent my New Year's Eve doing - working on my own Tulips cardigan. This is actually one of two combos that I have picked out - the other was much more pastel - y and much more my style but I decided to strike out and do something different. So far, I'm thrilled with the results. I'm just about to put the sleeves on scrap yarn which hopefully will get done today. I've actually arranged to have all week off from the shop - I must admit though I feel a bit a loose ends. Everyone is placing bets on whether or not I can actually stay away - we'll see......no promises! So here's the colors I choose for this cardigan:

Dream In Color Classy
Strange Harvest Semi Solid Orange
Strange Harvest
Spring Tickle
Cocoa Kiss
November Muse Semi Solid
Trim: Cocoa Kiss

The semi solids are exclusive to Pick Up Sticks - Veronica did an amazing job with them. Have I told you how much I love this yarn? Oh - I have some new yarn making it's debut at the shop - hopefully this week - Blue Heron Beaded Wool - gorgeous colorways. Veronica recommended it to me as one of her favorites so of course, I had to try it.

Anyone have any New Year's Resolutions? I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours! :)
