Ladies Weekend...

Now with TATTOOS.
This last weekend was the annual HT-Family Ladies Weekend.
I always have a lot of fun with the gals. I get to photograph, wander around, eat good food and buy silly things.
Like the above tattoo. When I make a joke I really commit to it.

I also found a lovely fiber store The Yarn Barn. They have looms, spinning wheels, yarn and fiber a plenty. I think I spent a good hour in there just looking around. That and they were also right next to the Tattoo shop.

The town also had a great fabric store. It gave me lots of great ideas for projects. I could have spent a lot of time in there too.

It was a great weekend and I'll post some more of the fun picks later.
It is definitely nice to have such great gals in my life.

Aunti M...

I will soon be called "Auntie M". My sister is going to be having a little one.
(not the little one in the picture, this is HT's Second Cousin)

At first I was a little wiered out by this. Also I was having a major downward turn. But now, I'm looking forward to lavishing knits on the little one.

Things like this Baby Sophisticate cardie. It is cute and gender neutral.

The Saartje Booties will have to be made again. Though I will have to try knitting them in DK weight yarn. They might just last a little longer that way.

After seeing MammaGrouch's Swing Thing, I might just have to make one for the little 'un.
(ravelry link, remember you to can find way to many patterns and ideas with what to make your stash into, join today.)

And when the kid gets a little older or odder, a Kiddie Cadet had.
That way s/he can dress like cool Auntie M.
