Idle hands

Posted in General at 9:04 pm by royalempress

There’s never a dull moment around here. If I’m not knitting, I’m cooking, cleaning, combing Lil’ Miss’ hair, ironing clothes for work and on and on. I had to stop and take a few shots of the knit related goods. Like the little pig in the blanket shot above. I really enjoyed knitting the Ballband from the Mason Dixon book. It’s a quick knit and very rewarding because of the colour combinations. I think I went a little crazy the other day at Hobby Lobby. I bought insane amounts of Sugar n Cream. Since Peaches n Cream seems to be hard to find, my co-worker and I have decided to order it from the website. Like I need more yarn in the “yarn closet”. *sigh* I need to post a few things on Destash to help make room for more stuff πŸ˜€ You can see my work on Ravelry. Yes ladies and gents, the empress has arrived πŸ˜‰

Speaking of more goodies, look at what my SP sent me:

I’m so honoured to have yarn hand dyed just for me! I love the feel of it too πŸ™‚ I may make a nice little scarf or maybe even a hat. I haven’t made one of those in a while. The tea is a plus. My recent love affair with flavoured coffe must slowly dwindle away. I will go back to my first love, tea, with the help of the special flavours she sent. I also love the book which is not in the picture; 50 Baby Booties to Knit. I have quite a few babies to knit for so this is perfect!

Speaking of perfect, I have to share these photos from my friend Edju’s wedding. It was PERFECT πŸ™‚

Edit: A few people have asked me about the first wedding pic. The photographer asked us to pose as if the diamond was so big and shiny that we had to cover our eyes from the glare. I was the one that was asked to hold her hand. I love that pic! The photographer’s picture is obviously much better. I’ll see if I can get a copy to show you guys πŸ™‚

    Me and some ladies from my knitting group were discussing the difference between peaches and cream and sugar and cream. One is supposed to be softer than the other. What’s your take on it?

    And your friend looks very happy. I love that cinderella dress. And you must share the story behind that first picture.

    Thanks to the comments regarding being Gorgeous and all. LOL I just can’t help it…

    ‘Tima, We still gotta get the flicks together. Maybe I can drive up and do the honors of photography… We’ll talk!
