Yes, that's right.  We're moving!!  As soon as we know where, we'll let you know.

Stitches South was terrific!  Thank you, AmyDe and family for your amazing and generous hospitality.  Some of the highlights was our fabulous meal at Cincos Mexican Cantina and or trip to Fernbank Museum of Natural History.

I finally recieved my Majacraft Little Gem and she's a keeper!!  I just love this wheel!

On My Needles:

The Daybreak Shawl by Stephen West in Miss Babbs Yummy 2ply Sock in the Nasturtium colorway and the rest of my Shi Bui sock in the Wasabi colorway (which was a Valentines present from "The Wit" and was used for my Citron shawl.

And, of course, the neverending February Lady Sweater I am knitting for my mother for Mother's Day.

In Our Wineglass:

Finca Flichman Reserva Malbec 2009  Two thumbs way up for this very flavorful red.  Loved it!

We have a trade for the Eat, Sleep, Knit Gift Certificate....And the trade is for a

Listen to Episode 26 Here!

One of the highlights of our trip to Florida was taking the girls to see the gators in the Everglades.

I finished up my Citron shawl with the crochet beaded bind-off.

And cast-on/finished my Kudos Circle Wrap
Also cast on for the Fitted Tank from the Spring/Summer Issue of Knit Simple magazine.

IN OUR WINEGLASS:
Baileyana Chardonnay which we both agreed was one of those Chards to be poured at room temperature.  Goes lovely with chocolate.

CampKIP was amazing! Stay tuned to the website so you can be a part next year!

For those of you who are not familiar, THIS is Kick Boodie! The BEST carnival ride ever.

Yes, I bought a chick!  Feel free to enter the Name the Chicken Contest in our Ravelry group.
This video will give you an idea of the gender test I was referring to except mine is a simple metal washer and a feed bag string!

TRADING POST:
We are still accepting trades for the $75 Gift Certificate to Eat Sleep Knit.  We will announce the chosen trade on the next podcast so get in those trades!!

We will be at Stitches South  this weekend and hope you can come see us at the Knit Wits Chocolate Sip & Share in the Lobby of the Renaissance Atlanta Waveryly near the Atrium Bar between 4:30 and 6:30pm on Friday April 15, 2011.
