I got a $25 French Knots 2 gift certificate for Christmas. We went there last Saturday and I bought 2 hanks of Malabrigo Chunky in Indigo, 1 hank of Malabrigo worsted in Purple Magic, and Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Multi in Lucky Stripe. Everything was 30% off so I got all of that for only $16. The mmmm chunky is going to be used for the Anthropology Inspired Capelet and the worsted is becoming a Foliage Hat from knitty.

Today my mom and I and some people in the Cedar Grove library knitting group went to Ruhama's in Milwaukee to go yarn shopping and then we went to Cheesecake Factory and Trader Joe's. At Ruhama's I bought 1 skein of Opal Feelings sock yarn. It is really pretty!! We ate lunch at the cheesecake place and then we got 1 piece of strawberry cheesecake to go and my parents and I just split it and it was soo good! Cheesecake factory is expensive though. The cheesecake we got was $6.95 for 1 piece of cheesecake!!
I'm also working on a baby kimono for a relative's new baby girl. It is very easy. I started it on Wednesday I think.

Blogger is being a butt and not letting me post pictures so pics will come tomorrow or later today. [edit: we have pictures!! yay!]
