Bliss (Debbie & Personal)

Over the 4th of July weekend (oh, how I love a three day weekend!), I went to Maryland to visit my sister. On the 3rd, we went to a cookout at my cousin and her fiance's house. There were lots of assorted family members, excellent food, fireworks and a hot tub. I've edited out all but my arm and part of my leg from the photo (for your viewing pleasure), but needless to say, Friday was wonderful! :)

Another pleasure of mine is getting something wonderful on sale. I consider it a coup if I can find something I like and can use at a serious discount. Did I mention that I'm an Ebay addict?

Birki's Dijon (New in Box) = $35.00

Birki's Calais (New in Box) = $24.00

Using, I found a "new" yarn store that wasn't far from Denise's home, Crazy for Ewe of Leonardtown, Maryland. The owner was incredibly nice, the store was stocked with amazing fiber and names I've only read about, e.g. E. Lavold, Louisa Harding and others, and there was a sale - - - 40% off of....

O-Wool and

Manos del Uruguay.

Given what I saved, I bought a couple of skeins of Debbie Bliss' Donegal Chunky Tweed too.

So, if you're ever in Leonardtown, Maryland, I'd highly recommend visiting Crazy for Ewe! One last thing; I knit yet another beret. My niece, Taylor, liked Briana's and Andie's berets so well that I did one for her over the weekend.

Glad you coaxed a glimmer of a smile in that last shot - she's a pretty gal with a lovely new beret!

And I LOVE your new Birkis! I've got a pair on the way here, too - and got them on ebay, as well!
