Knitting in the sun...

I am here in AZ!
Today was great.I went with my SILs and MIL to a great little yarn shop located in Carefree called Bonnie's Yarn Crafts. We probably spent an hour in there. The staff was great, really helpful and friendly. They had a great sale going too. I got some fun novelty yarn for holiday scarves as well as some Lily yarn by Noro that I am not sure what I want to do with, but just loved because of how soft it was...
After we were done we headed over to a little coffee shot called C4 and knit for about 3 hours. What fun. It was good to spend time with the fam and catch up with everyone.
The guys all went golfing for the day-

Just a little check in... all that yarn/knitting I had to report!

Thanks for your comment about the scarf. If you go to the Purl website (store.purlsoho.com) and look at the homepage, you'll see 'book corrections' at the bottom. The scarf pattern is in there.

Your Mrs B looks awesome... it is so very uhm, French Revolution, with the ruffly cuff. Did you like working with the fuzzy stuff (sorry can't remember the name of the fuzzy stuff just now) I have heard it sticks to itself and can be cause for lots of swearing, so just wondering what your experience was.

The Kid silk haze is really soft and yummy- you forget the fact that it is a bit tricky to frog and the first row to knit after the cast on can be a B(@*# if you cast on to tightly...

other than that i loved it. not tangly at all.
