I'm Back!!!!!!!

I know.  I haven't posted in a really long time, but I'm back with news and... a pattern!  Which thing should we start with?  I think I'll tell you about "The News" first.

On Saturday my awesome knitting friend Hasol and I went to Archer's Afield in Oregon and had tons of fun!  I suck at archery, but it's still really fun.  Luckily I brought my camera so I took some pictures.  Here they are!

Fletchings on the arrow


Hasol's bow and arrows


Our targets

Cool huh?  Archery is definitely something fun to do with friends!  I also have some yarnerific pictures of the yarn I got at All About Yarn, which is right next to Archer's Afield.  Here's what I bought.

Malabrigo Merino Worsted

Melody Sock Yarn

Pretty purple!  Hehehehehehehehehehehehehhehehhehhehehehhehwhehehehehhehhehehhehehheheh!

Also, on Monday I turned 13!  It was an awesome birthday, with presents, celebrations, wishes, and cheesecake (from the cheesecake factory).  Here's what I got....

  • iPhone from my parents!  It's my dad's old one, and I like it very much.  Thanks Mom and Dad!

  • $50 dollar gift certificate for Angelika's Yarn Store also from my mom and dad!
