Friday Favorites

 

Happy Friday everyone. I am so ready for a couple of days off. I may stay in my pajamas all day tomorrow.

I wanted to share some of my latest favorite things with you.  These include some of my scarves I have been knitting lately. I think I told you that I love to knit scarves.  They are so easy and usually you don’t have to worry about much of a pattern, and you can take them anywhere with you. I usually have three or four scarves going at one time. This is not totally a bad thing because I also finish them almost at the same time.  So here are the scarves I have recently finished. A big thank you to my friend and coworker Shelby who agreed to be my scarf model.

I love all of the vivid colors in this scarf.

This black and white scarf is a favorite of mine because I LOVE black and white and I wear this combination all the time. You can see how nice it looks against a bold color like Shelby’s red shirt.

This scarf was the softest.  It was also Shelby’s favorite so I gifted it to her for being such an amazing “scarf model”. I got this yarn on clearance at Hobby Lobby and it knits up perfectly.

Last but not least on the scarves is this fun red-pink scarf.  The yarn is really thick and you can knit a scarf in no time flat.  I think I used size 35 needles. This yarn was on sale at Hobby Lobby back in October and a friend of mine snagged it for 90% off! I had her pick me up several skeins. I think I may use some of this yarn to make a Valentines Wreath  I will keep you posted on that

Yesterday I had a late lunch with my bestie Lorie and after lunch we went to a couple of our favorite thrift stores.  Look at this little plate and stand I scored for $1.00  I love it!

Have you heard of Zenni Optical?  I heard some people at work talking about ordering really cheap glasses. Guys I am rough on glasses.  I sleep in them and throw them all over my car and house. I scratch them and lose them. And I usually pay a fortune for them even though I have a really simple prescription. No bifocals yet. So I decided to go online and try Zenni Optical.  I went online and uploaded a photo of me, and picked tons of glasses to try.  I loved it!!! I got my prescription from my optometrist and entered it into the site.  Zenni is very user friendly.  I then picked a pair of glasses that was about $40.00 and placed the order. The whole time I was thinking it can’t be this easy and this cheap.  Well it is!!!!  Two weeks later I received my glasses and I love them!!!! What do you think?
