Story of Week and Stash Enhancements  There has not been much progress on my WIPs in the last 2 weeks, and the story is on Sunday after last podcast, I came down with a stomach virus and was out of commission for 2 days. And this last weekend I was preparing and giving a girls day card party with a Gilmore Girls theme. It was so much fun.

Stashing was done. I got some RedHeart SS in the Mistletoe color for Christmas knitting, and 2 sets of zings from AliExpress.

Story of Week and Stash Enhancements Story and Stash will be intermingled this time. Ted and I have been on 2 camping trips since I last podcaster. First trip was to Lost Valley Lake. on that trip I bought some souvenir yarn from Walmart in Owensville. Got a Mandala from lionBrand yarns, color is Gnome, and some RedHeart scrubby in a yellow and green color, which I find not pleasant to work with. when we returned home, I had this awesome mail from ontheround.      Next Camping trip was to the annual Bull Float trip. Only thing happened this time was I lost a toenail. When I returned home, on Monday I got my first installment of a 3 month Gilmore Girls yarn club from TheYarnAtHomeMom on Etsy.

July Prize draw  

Story of Week and Stash Enhancements   I purchased 2 hooks from knit picks I wanted to try. So far ,I really like them. I have some yarn coming.  Since last podcast nothing exciting has happened. Went to a PJ Card party last weekend. It was fun, with good snacks and good game. My partner and I won 2 out of 3 games, so I would say we won the day. 🙂
