Weekend Plans 8/23 – 8/25

Happy Friday to you! This week was crazy and a few unexpected things popped up that kept me from posting the details about the upcoming “Sheepish Bloom Drop” group yarn bomb! No worries. It just means I have a little more time to get everything together over the weekend. Would you want to go ahead and do the yarn bomb next weekend or should we wait and do it the weekend after that? I want to make sure there is enough time for everyone to make a yarn/floral creation!

Here’s what I have planned this weekend…

– I received my first ever issue of Pom Pom Quarterly in the mail yesterday. Geez louise it is gorgeous. I am so excited to flip through the beautiful patterns. Pom Pom is one of my sponsors this month too! Be on the look out for a Pom Pom Issue 6 giveaway next week!

– A box of new yarn arrived yesterday too! It is for another fun project I have in the works. Time to get knitting!

– I can’t resist the September issue of Vogue. Yes, it is 800 pages of ads, but I am always inspired by the beautiful editorials. Jennifer Lawrence is pretty awesome too.

– A few yards of polka-dot fabric for yet another project. Really excited about this one!

– I will finish up the plans for the Sheepish Bloom Drop next week. I really want to incorporate real flowers, knit flowers, crochet flowers, paper flowers…you get the idea. Even if you don’t know how to knit or crochet, you should definitely participate. It will be a fun way to brighten up your town!

– My friends and I are having a slumber party this weekend. Hmm…I haven’t said that since I was in high school. Haha. You are never too old for a girls night, right? It should be fun! I am always down for painting nails and watching funny movies.

That’s about it! What are you up to this weekend? How are your projects coming along?

    Lovely photo, and sounds like your weekend will be a good one. I will be trying to find a few quiet moments to work on a shawl/scarf. I can feel the season shifting, and this is my favourite time to knit, as the mornings and evenings turn cooler and darker.

  8. Vickie says:

    sounds like a lovely weekend – tomorrow we’re off to the forest to climb a hill :)

  9. I’m going to continue knitting my sweater and might also paint my nails since I found such a beautiful green colour yesterday and it was on sale too 😀

    New reader here, and I just love your site! So inspiring. I just received my issue of Pom Pom Quarterly and I am IN LOVE with the Vermeil scarf. I asked for the Osprey yarn for my birthday, giving me just enough time to finish the shawl I’m working on (Holden via Ravelry). Today my husband and I are taking a drive through Vermont (where we live) to soak up one of the last weekends of summer!

  12. Lori ann says:

    oh how i love everything in that photo! i plan on sitting down with the sept. issue also, i laughed when i saw the mailcarrier had somehow managed to stuff it in my mailbox! it took me minutes to wrestle it out! (chanel’s new campaign ad has models knitting!)
    i have been wishing for pom pom quarterly, it looks amazing! have a fantastic weekend! hi meredith, i’m lori!

  14. I just love your blog, your photo’s are brilliant, loving your new yarn too. I had new yarn delivered this week and I am trying crochet cable stitch for the first time to make a baby all-in-one sleeping bag. It’s coming along nicely too, the stitch is quite easy once you get the hang of it lol.
