Leaving for Chicago


I'm popping in to wish you a happy weekend

the knitted baby boy blanket is finished, and now drying while I blocked it

I am very pleased with the final result

more pictures will follow next week, after I have given it to my friend this weekend in Chicago

she reads my blog, you know... I like it to be a little surprise for her ~ smile ~

besides, there are two things on my calendar in October I am already excited about

in Chicago I will be attending an event in Nina's wonderful yarn shop with designer Stephen West

and at the end of October I will be visiting Blissdom Canada, the Canadian blogger conference in Toronto

if you happen to be attending one of them too, let me know! I would love to meet you


but first : I am off to Chicago, I can't wait to see my dear friends again!

wishing you a lovely Fall weekend
