WIP Wednesday, Minnesota State Fair, and StevenBe

Two blog posts in a week. Can you handle it?

This past weekend we visited P's Cousins and his parents meet us there as well. It has become a tradition for us to visit over Labor Day weekend and attend the Minnesota State Fair. We had a great time eating ridiculous food, riding rides and seeing the animals. We went Saturday and were apart of the all time highest attendance for the state fair, over 252,000 people!
We spent the night recovering and relaxing. Sunday, the boys went golfing and the 3 ladies plus N went to a yarn store. Usually, we go to the same yarn store when I visit M, however, this time I made her step out of the box and we visited StevenBe. It was so fun. I very modern yarn store with lots of stock. I loved the fact that people came to the yarn store just to relax and knit. It was a place for knitters to come, socialize, show off their WIPS and knit. 
I love these sweet ladies!!!

Because I have more yarn then I know what to do with, I treated myself to new knitting bags. (I only have a picture of one of them.)
 This weekend, I started some mittens for my mother-in-law intended for a Christmas gift. I was able figure out her hand size and have her try it on while I was making the right hand mitten. The pattern is pop over mittens (not the pop over mittens on ravelry!) which was designed by the store where I bought the yarn, Baskets of Yarn in La Crosse, WI. The pattern calls for Panguipulli by Knitting Fever. I believe the colorway is #28 but it could be #30... I lost the tag.

Thanks for stopping by. I joined Ginny today.
