I am SO excited!!!

First things first.

Here is an update on Mr GreenJeans. I have gotten through the sleeve increases and I am working on my pattern/ribbing repeats now. Very easy pattern to remember, and I even successfully learned how to cable without using a needle! Makes life much easier.

I think have even learned how to use my camera well enough to get a pretty good close up shot. I am anxious to see it when it is done and blocked. I have to spend more time doing this as I can be intimidated by new things when I don't understand them.

So far, I have to say, I like the stitch definition I am getting with this reclaimed yarn.

Last night was Sit and Knit night. Met two new NE PA knitters. Both of these lovely ladies brought wonderful yarns with them for their projects and I got to see up close and personal, Manos and Debbie Bliss Cathay. Both very nice choices.

That is one things about living in an area where there are no local yarn stores, you don't get to touch and feel things. So this was really nice being able to see and touch these two yarns the other gals were using. I'm already looking forward to next week.

NOW, for the REAL exciting news!! I was eavesdropping, using the radar feature, at Ravelry yesterday and there came up a note about someone looking for sample knitters. I didn't know what that was, so I looked further at the group. I won't mention who it is yet, because I don't know if this type of thing is for general public (like the general public reads my blog?!) Anyway, it is a yarn company, they send you their yarn and a pattern for you to knit for a sample for their trunk shows. Then as a thank you for knitting, they send you some of their yarn for your personal use. Isn't that COOL? And I was chosen. I am so excited about it. I can't wait to get the package in the mail. That really made my day yesterday.
