And to all knitting sisters out there, grab yourself a button, a nice bottle of wine, a chick flick and a few close galpals and settle in for some enjoyable sisterhood time.
And as if that wasn't enough, included were these lovely stitch markers! They out rank all other markers in my collection to date. That gal is one talented lady, I tell you. Here I was excited about completing another pair of fingerless mitts and getting to see what others were producing, I never thought I would end up with treasures such as these! What a lucky gal am I!

Since this queen has got some knitting to get to, I leave you with a shot of the hand made card from Willa Landino and wish all my fellow queens of knitting a happy, healthy, and beautiful weekend.

I actually did this portion during a school board meeting regarding the budget and stayed calm and relaxed through the whole thing! Even when they announced that they are cutting my position! Don't worry, I still have a job. I just won't be doing the same thing next year that I am this year. I wasn't worried about finishing quickly. I figured that change takes time and since this scarf is representing the friendships I've made through my changes, it could take some time too. But progress it did.One repeat here, two there, relaxed, calmed, and clearheaded, it didn't take long before I had something wonderful. Something that I've worn everyday this week to remind me of the shifting happening in my life and of the friendships I have to give me strength. Many changes still lay ahead. But now I have this beauty to arm myself with to remind me of the strength and faith my friends give me. Thank you, Katie. For everything.

On another much brighter note, this year V-Day was much less depressing than last year. My parents came down for a little visit and surprised me by bringing My Little Man with them! Oh do I love that little boy!!! We spent the day riding the metro, his new most favorite thing about visiting Aunt Wendy, and checking out the trains at the American History Museum. That and two days filled with giggles, hugs, and lots of snuggle time really made my weekend! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend as much as I did.

The other award I received this week came from my buddy Chan. I'm a little behind on this one, so if you're checking out her blog for it, you'll have to scroll down a little.
