Fiber Arts Friday...300th Post!

Can you believe this will be my 300th post?!  Sounds like a reason for a celebration...stay tuned for a giveaway sometime next week.

We're also celebrating The Saint's 60th birthday...it was officially yesterday but since he had to work last night we'll be going out for our favorite soup tonight...and maybe some cake.

While I'm thinking about what kind of contest we can have to celebrate #300 I'll show you my progress on Mr. Greenjeansclick to biggie-size photos

Not bad for 12 evening's worth of knitting?  I'm enjoying this project but hoping I don't run out of yarn.  I should be ok if I don't make the body too long.  Of course I can always opt for shorter sleeves than the pattern shows.  My arms are pretty short anyway so I should be good.

I've turned the heel and finished the gusset of my second watermelon sock so that should be finished this week.  There's a sewing machine patiently waiting for some tlc in the basement.  Hoping I get to that sometime tomorrow, first I have to take Sam to the vet; annual shots and some meds for his broken out skin.  Even though he's been on the allergy shots for a while he's not done with them yet and this spring pollen has taken it's toll on his fragile system.

It's Fiber Arts Friday so be sure to stop in and say hello to Andrea and all the gang that participates in the Blog Carnival.

I'll be enjoying a little staycation today and Monday...nothing like a long weekend!  Saturday is the Fiber Fiesta up in Greenville.  I'm pretty excited about it.  Lots of fiber and friends.

Hey, everybody have a great week.  LittleDog says be chill...

Congratulations! 300 posts? I haven't even looked to see what I've done. Happy birthday to the Saint too.

I love the sweater...it's BEAUTIFUL!

Hoping to make it to Greenville but I have to be on Holland the next day so I don't know if Grumpy will want me gone both days.

Thank you for sharing.

That sweater is looking really beautiful! I love it even as a little cropped short-sleeved cardi like it is now!

I think this every week, but not sure if I've written it yet, so I just want to say how much love that you finish your posts with the little dog shout out.

Your sweater is georgeous and congrats on making it to 300 posts.
