A Knitty Cross Stitch



Finally I have finished something! Acutally that's exactly what my DD said, "Wow! Mom you actually finished something!" LOL This is a gift for a friend who has a knitting/craft shop and it's her store's 1 year anniversary. I hope she likes this. This is her store: http://www.dabblestudios.com/ She has made it really cozy to come and work on whatever you want.
I found this cute freebie at http://www.lucieheaton.com Thanks Lucie!
Now back to catch up on my knitting scarves for Christmas gifts. I'm excited about this weekend! I am going to Santa Ynez, CA with my long time childhood friend, Carol. Her mom lives there on 5 acres and she has sheep and lots of other cute animals. She uses their wool for knitting! See why I'm excited? Also we are going to one of my favorite places, Solvang. It's a cute Danish town located in the middle of California. My family used to go there when I was a kid because my mom is Swedish and it made her feel more at home I think. They also have a LNS there which I will be visiting too. I'll post pics when I come back.
