Bubble Gum Pink Birthday Yarn

I just spent a perfect birthday weekend out at Edgefield with my sweetie-pie, Brad. During this perfect weekend, we hung out with special friends, watched movies, drank some delicious beer, golfed, played darts and shuffleboard, watched the snow fall (so awesome!), and I had a wonderful spa day at Ruby's Spa. The Perfect Potion, to be exact. I highly recommend this!

I also finished the book for book group this month, 19 Minutes by Jodi Picoult. Such an intense book. Join us on Friday, March 27 @ 6:30pm at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop for what I expect will be a very interesting discussion.

Oh, and did I mention that I got a lot of knitting done? I ordered some special birthday yarn to make myself this really cute cabled cardigan. The yarn is Soft Spun by Cascade Yarns, in a delicious bubble gum pink (color #2837). What a surprise, huh?

Slip Stash Hat

This was such a fun hat to make! It's one of Carolyn's patterns, The Slip Stash Hat. I made one for Nick for Christmas in black, gray and white. This one is a shop model at The Naked Sheep for a class I'm teaching this spring.

It's a super fun technique! And the yarn, Cash Vero DK, is delightful! It's a super soft blend of merino wool, microfiber and cashmere.

Stop by and touch'll want to make one yourself!
