Woo Ha FO!!!

So the afghan is blocking as I write this. Children are in picture for size - it is 52 by 52 as it blocks. A nice size I think and so soft...
My Firebirds are about 10 rows from completion - 2 extra sts on one (or 2 less on the other) but who cares.

Tomorrow is Spa day. Sis and I are going for the Spa mani/pedi and the relaxation facial/massage. HooRAY.

We may get some pics of said afghan, socks and another couple FOs. And perhaps some pretty yarn that came my way.
Robyn's Nest May Sock Club - Jennifer of VanCalcar Acres did the dying - firebird is also her dye job. Lovely yarn.
This is my Plucky Classics in.... a lovely sport weight yarn that may make it's way into one of those amazing cowl patterns that are circulating blog world and ravelry.

And here is the May edition of the Lucky Lurker's Club from a Swell yarn shop.
The yarns are in my favourite colours.... all is right in the world. If only I could actually use as much yarn as I have acquired. However I wish it to be known that I have not bought yarn this month yet - the July issue of Robyn's Nest Sock Club will occur, but only because I don't want to miss out. I am working hard on not buying the yarn.

Another afghan pic

And my beautiful big gurl in her crown.

Hi. Nice to meet you. I found you via The Stash Basket. Where did you find such a great pattern for a knitted crown? My granddaughter would just love it?

The afghan looks huge!

Glad you got your May kit in the mail - I'm a tad behind on my blog reading.
