Now I can breath....

I'm so happy that the spring semester is over two weeks ago and the commencement was over last Friday. I finally wrapped up and turned in all paperwork to offices. Summer is here!! Few students are here on campus taking summer school. Few residence halls are closed for two weeks till summer programs start. It will be busy summer for me at work.

I was alone for five nights last week while my DH rode Harley to Myrtle Beach, SC with his friend for the bike week. I thought I would have plenty of time knitting and do nothing but read and update blogs. I was wrong!! I spent all afternoon shopping at Baltimore and stopped new yarn shop - Lovelyarns. The store is really cute. When I arrive there, I could see two ladies sitting and knitting at the front porch and there were four men and two women knitting inside the store. They have Malabrigo yarns that I'm really in love with! I left the store empty hands. I went to Fiberworks in Ashton, Maryland on Sunday and found the yarn I need for my next project - Printed Silk Cardigan. That store is REALLY messy and so unorganized but the owner was very helpful. I was so tempted to take over the store and organize the yarn to make it more friendly.

Elsabeth Lavold - Hemopathy

I was so happy to my DH again last Sunday. He arrived home at 9:15 pm. He was soooo exhausted from riding 12 hours (through windy and rainy day). I'm relieved that he got home safe. He had a great time there!!!

Tangled Yoke Cardigan in progress

I did finish the body and one sleeve of the Tangled Yoke Cardigan. And, I'm almost done with second sleeve. I can't wait to put these pieces together and make the yoke. I hope it will turn out beautiful as I'm hoping for.

Secret Book /Yarn Swap Strikes Again....
The package arrived today and I was sooooo lucky that Denise from Albama spoiled me with many stuff. Ain't I spoiled? Thanks, Denise!!!!!!

Memorial Weekend is coming up real soon. More likely we will go to camping this weekend. We have not decided where to camp but definitely want to get out of our house. I would rather be knitting than doing the housecleaning!!! The weather should be very NICE this weekend.

Hopefully, I will post the finished sweater next week and start new project - Printed Silk Cardigan.

Happy Knitting, Happy Memorial Weekend and Have a GREAT weekend!!!!
