Another one bites the dust!
On June 14th...
a Racally Beaver made very short work of the sapling pine tree the Hubby has been nurturing through a two year drought.
On June 27th...
Through keen CSI techniques (teeth impressions) it has been deterimned that the very same Rascally Beaver made another midnight raid on our tender, apparently tasty, landscape.
And then tried this one out for dessert...

I’m looking forward to meeting all the people who’ve contacted me over the last couple weeks from the Meet Up site. Check the appropriate box at the left so I know how many chairs to pull together. Hopefully we'll firm up on a permenent date for future meetings.
See you Wednesday!

Only problem is, is that every time somebody sees them their like “Oh! Can you make one for me?!” And I say “Sure, you can have this one.” And I give it away!
This one went to Katie
The pink one went to Jeanie
And Sharon will be getting these

Well, another blazing hot day in SC. 2pm 91 degrees 28% humidity!
Needless to say WWKiP Day at Yes Yarn was held indoors, thank you Debbie!
Several people came early (O.K. on time) but had other engagements that prevented them from hanging out all day.
Thats's Paige, Kaley, Kay, Gabby, Debbie (Yes Yarn) and Jan!
So great to meet you all! See you @ Knit Nite!
The first question most fiber crafters ask each other is “What’cha making?” Followed by “Are you on Ravelry?” All of a sudden you’re meeting a long lost friend. “OMG! You’re (fill in the blank) on Ravelry? I’m So & So!” It’s kinda like meeting a movie star although I’ve never met anyone who’s ever been in a movie. (Not one that you’d pay to see anyway.) We had a small Gang that did manage to actually knit/crochet while we talked and laughed about our pets, kids, projects, yarn and Ravelry of course! We had a great afternoon!
I completed my 6th Haley Waxberg Grocery Bag and started on my second square for the Orange & Green
Barbara J. Hopps Memorial-Blanket Square for the Hope Lodge.
No, I'm not showing them to you! Not yet anyway.
Oh yea. Remember the geese and the Great Heron we had on the beach? Remember the 5 foot pine tree on the left?
Well, aparently we have a beaver cuz this is what we found this morning.
The Hubby is bummed.
He planted it.

This Yarn Thang is like a DRUG.
All of a sudden I'm volunteering for stuff like Orange & Green, making flyers, placing ads (Upstatetoday and Independent Mail), and emailing every person I could find that ever mentioned knitting, crocheting, spinning, Hell! YARN for that matter! from the Meetup site.
I'm hoping for a really good turn out because Margaret at Yes Yarn is such a cool lady and I love her store. I know she thinks I'm a kook.
But seeing that I'm just a whack job who gets excited about yarn I'll probably be the only one there. IF any one else does show up they will be accosted? no... greeted with cheers & applause? maybe. Photographed? Absolutely! Heartily Greeted? Yes! Heartily Greeted and required? no... strong arm suggested? no... enthusiastically informed! YA! that's it! Enthusiasticlly Informed! that I want to start our own little Crochet (and Knit) Group here in Seneca.
ZPDK of SC? I've even checked out a really cool place to meet. The Tiki Hut! What could be better than hangin' with your peeps, crocheting, eating and drinking, LAKE SIDE!
More info soon!

And so, so silky soft, mmmmmm. (Oh! Sorry.) I might just keep this one for myself. I do have enough yarn to make another and it was super easy. Only took me a couple days. Got some great blocking tips from a 2005 Yarnharlot blog.
Still haven’t received my swift and yarn baller. OK, I only ordered them 5 days ago but I've got yarn to wind!
(I get my patience or lack of from my father.)

Katie Graduates! We all knew she would. Isn't she beautiful?! And smart too! So of course it's no surprised that she's been accepted to Clemson University! Go Tigers! She had a great day for her party. And everyone had a very nice time!
The Net Bag Herd is growing. I've finished 3 more. The Fantasy yarn I purchased I didn't remember to have wound. Dern! I've been waiting for an excuse to buy a Swift and Winder. Just have to wait till it gets here to start winding them and get started on more bags!
Also purchased a new wooden Brittany Crochet Hook that works fantastic with the Debbie Bliss silk yarn I bought for the Arachne's Tears Scarf. It's progressing well I think.
Over the weekend we had goslings, yesterday we had a
