Stoles and Luggage

My stole is finished and blocked and it's beautiful! I will get a pic up soon, I hope! I'm working on my 2nd Bistro shirt and hope to have it done this weekend so I can wear it on our England trip next week! I also ordered yarn for the MS3 knit along, and for WEBS Valley Yarn Green River Tunic. So many projects . . . too little time. I entered the 1-2-3-4-5 Contest too.

Have you been luggage shopping lately? It's confusing! There are so many choices. I have to mention a wonderfully helpful JC Penney associate name Ally in the Keene, NH store. She spent almost an hour with me, reviewing the plusses and minuses of the various lines. I finally decided on the pieces I wanted, only to discover that I couldn't get all of them in the color. She searched the stock room twice to be sure there wasn't one more blue case in back. I ended up changing color which meant another trip to the stock room. I purchased 2 black bags. I wrote up a commendation for her for her supervisor because she really was helpful and friendly. This morning I got a call from her from the store. A new delivery of luggage had been made, and there were now 2 blue cases, if I wanted to exchange. Since we had to back to that area anyway, (a bit of trek, but not terrible) we went in this afternoon, exchanged black for blue, and bought 2 more blue pieces!!

Hey, thanks for visiting! I hope you come back to my blog again! :-)

Keene, NH - I'm in Manchester, so it's always nice to "meet" someone in the area...

Hi, Deb! I'm not sure yet if I'm going to the Knit & Crochet show tomorrow. I'm coordinating with family to watch my son if I do go. Will you be there?

Thanks for telling me you're a regular on my blog, that means a lot to me.

Hi! I was checking your blog for some other information because it popped up on Google and saw your stole. Really pretty lace pattern. The bamboo yarn looks like it gives a very good stitch definition for that. Which issue of "Knit Simple" did you find the pattern in?

Gloria,
It was in the summer issue. Sorry to be so long replying, but we were on vacation.
