Yarn Along {Orange Stripe}

Hey everyone! I'm joining the Yarn Along over at Small Things again this week. It amazes how quickly a week passes by. I didn't get any reading done this week (I know, horrifying right?) so I am still on Eggs, Beans and Crumpets - and I have been listening to a collection of Sherlock Holmes dramatized shorts stories I received for Christmas. Even though I did not read much this week I did manage to get some crocheting done. I finished the white and am on the final leg of the scarf, the orange stripe! I had hoped to finish this week, but we had a very busy week, so I didn't quite manage that. My mom and I have been having lots of fun knitting/crocheting with friends every week, which is where I manage to get most of my work done. We also went on a mini vacation to the east side of the Phoenix Metrop this weekend - though we never even made it into phoenix proper. Mom and I went to a delightful yarn shop and I got several more colors for my ripple afghan! Anyway, enough chit chat, here is my picture this week.

Much tea has been consumed while crocheting this scarf, so I decided my cup of Lady Grey deserved a cameo this week.

Have a fantastic week, Hopefully I'll have a new project to write about next week!

I LOVE these posts. :) Your scarf is so great. Can't wait to see it all finished!

You tea cup is GORGEOUS. I want one!! I wish we lived closer to you so we could come over and crochet and drink tea with you. I think we'd have fun. :)

Hello Elissa!
Thanks so much for commenting on our doll blog!
It's been much too long since I dropped a line your way.
How are things over here?
I can't imagine having 4 surgeries in one year! Blech! I hope you are quite recovered now. =]

I love the picture on this post. What is better than crocheting, tea and Wodehouse?
We started watching the Jeeves and Wooster show a few days ago. Oh, so funny! You must see it, if you haven't already!
It was good to hear from you! I miss your blog posts!
Hope you're having a lovely day!

Hello Marguerite, thanks so much for commenting! WE are all doing really well - it was actually my mom who had three surgeries and my dad one, so four all in all for the family. Thankfully I have not gone under the surgeons knife!

It doesn't get much better than crocheting tea and wodehouse does it? Oh yes, we absolutely love the Jeeves and Wooster show, we own the entire collection and have been watching them recently too!

I'll be blogging again soon hopefully, but thanks for dropping by!
