Yesterday morning I went out to the LYS and got a new ball of yarn. Apparently the incredibly thin ball of Noro I had for the second half of my scarf was an oddity. ( I rewound the ball so I know it was consistently thin and more of a sock weight than worsted weight.) It was Really strange how much narrower and the second half of the scarf was coming out with that thin ball of yarn. Even the ladies at the Yarn shop thought so.
I was so happy to get the new ball of yarn that I worked on it most of the day and was able to finish it up. I love it!
Now to find a use for that really thin ball of Noro.

I have had these two little squares of soap since before last Christmas. I decided to dress them up and take them out of their boxes. They were a quick knit.
Today is the Last day to leave a comment and be in the drawing for my 250th post giveaway. The Prize is a surprise. I will give a hint that I will include something handmade by me. (not the soap.)

I used the cuff of the sleeve for the tab to hold it closed. Hooray for not having to make the button hole!

The first day we saw ELVIS! He was driving down I-40 just west of Oklahoma City.
He was talking on his Cell phone and wearing big sunglasses.
We enjoyed the garden at My parents house, and visited for 5 days.
Then we climbed back into the car for the two day return home.
Thanks Mom and Dad for Having us out for a visit with only a few hours notice before we started our drive. The kids Had a great time playing, swimming, swinging, and go-cart riding.
We all had a great time.
This is Post 250! how about a giveaway?

I buy my supplies at Hobby Lobby but I am sure other craft stores carry the supplies.
I use a Speedball Lino cutting set. I have tried the pink Speedball stamp carving sheets and the white sheets made by Master Carve.
The Speedball sheets I have had seem to be prone to air bubbles so I get the Master Carve more often than not.
You can see what most of these items look like online in the Crafts Etc catalog.(Hobby Lobby)
Good tutorial pictures here.
This looks good too.
Here you can find some pretty good directions.
