Almost Finished

I finished knitting and seaming and weaving in the ends for the Pea Pod sweater last night. No pictures because my mother took it home with her to find the perfect buttons. She's going to sew them on sometime this week - I'm so happy that I'm not doing that. Seaming and sewing buttons are not my strengths.

I've got the matching hat started and now I'm looking for cute bootie patterns on Ravelry. I've got a ton of Knit Picks Shine Worsted left so I'm going to see what else I can make this week to match.

In related knitting news I'm due to get another charity baby blanket from the Knitting Help forums to work on this week. It's a Patriotic themed blanket this time and I think I might already have the yarn in the right color. If not - I've got 2 coupons for Micheal's and I heard they're having a good sale this week. I'm planning to go there to shop on Thursday anyway just to stock up on some yarn for charity projects.

My husband and I stopped by there on Saturday to pick up something small. I hope to have a large gift card coming to me this summer so I was trying to see if it would be better to use it in the store or just order what I need online. I have to say - my local store doesn't really have much in terms of needles and supplies. A little disappointing but all the more reason to visit my local yarn shops I guess!
