A Little Guest

Look who came to visit! Monkey and his mom, "Kristo". You may have met them before at their home-blog, "busternme".

Monkey is tired and needed a big sleep-in.

Kris and I kept Monkey busy all day yesterday shopping. We visited the two local yarn shops and the yarn section of every department store in town. She was looking for just the right pattern to use with a gorgeous merino wool coming on sale soon at Elann.com. We found the perfect pattern at "Aunt Debbie's". It is in the "Drops, Strikkedesign, nr. 78", (model #11, follow the link, it's the third photo from the right on the bottom row).

We also traipsed through all the accessory departments looking for a suitable sash for her wedding dress. Wouldn't you know it, we found exactly what we wanted at another LYS, "Chilliwack Wool & Craft Shop". I'll be knitting an exquisite lace and bead sash for her. I've got it started and we held it up to her wedding dress and it looks MAWvelous DAWling.

Sorry, no pictures of the wedding dress itself, but I can give you a bit of a sneak preview of the sash.

Umm, so pretty. Congratulations on the upcoming wedding.

Monkey has certainly been a busy monkey lately. I'm going to be making the pig out of the same book for my son.

It looks like the perfect next project to me.
