Last Volleyball Tournament and New Projects

This weekend was the last tournament of the season! It still feels like it barely started! Friday night I got to go to the Florida Region Volleyball Award Banquet. The guest speaker was Stacy Sykora!

She went to the Olympics three times and won a silver medal! She was pretty great! I’ve watched her play for years, so it was really neat to get to hear about her experiences. She passed around the medal and I was beyond excited to hold it!

I was also able to watch a little of the Florida Men’s Professional team play. ¬†They were awesome! It made me miss BYU volleyball games so much!

It is so crazy how high they can jump and how hard they can hit! It is so fun to watch!

My team did pretty well this weekend! We made it to the gold bracket, but lost early in the playoffs. My team has improved so much and it has been so fun to watch!

With volleyball season winding down, I will hopefully have more time to devote to the blog and new projects! I’ve been working on a few new things that I will share with you as soon as I can!

I’m working on something really neat with this yarn from KnitPicks! This is my first time using the Brava Worsted, and I really like it! Plus, there is a great color selection.

I can’t show you what I’m making yet. It’s a gift and I don’t want to spoil the surprise!

I’ve also come up with another mandala pattern! I really like this one and I’m so excited to share it! Hopefully I can get it up for you within the next week!
