Dear Knitty Gritty

Posted in General at 6:21 pm by royalempress

It seems like I had to fight with Dish TV to get the Knitty Gritty show. Now that I finally have it, I am ever so grateful! Look what it has inspired me to knit:

This free pattern can be found here for the top and here for the bottom. I will be sporting this baby on the cruise ship in a few weeks *cheese grin*!

In other news…
I found this site while looking for a decent price to purchase a few skeins of Lamb’s Pride Cotton Fleece. I’m wondering if the prices are too good to be true!!

I also found this marvelous designer by the name of Maria K. Bell. She has the cutest handmade polymer clay knitting needles. How cute??

Ok, I’m off to finish my bathing suit. Until next time…

So much is going on (as usual), but I had to make time to update the latest “goings-ons” as my friend would say. So here goes….

“Jack of Spades” and “Royal Empress” are officially man and wife as of February 24th, 2005 (click on pics).

I couldn’t have chosen a better life partner to share my future with *mushy and teary-eyed*. If you are reading this Hunny, I love you with all my heart and soul *xoxo*. It felt so good to have a few family and friends share the special moment with us. And my step daughter…how cute is she?? Next, we’re off to our honey moon on a 7 day cruise to PR, Aruba, Barbados, Dominica and St. Thomas. Just typing it makes me excited! I’ll be sure to post pictures!

I’ll talk about my fabulous knitting experiences in my next post. Don’t worry, I’ll post sooner than you think 😀
