These slippers were made by my dear friend Ariel. The past few years I have knitted slippers for the local rest home.

This year I had a care center for the mentally challenged ask me to donate to them also. So I started a yahoo group and am asking for help with this project. If you're interested in doing some worth while knitting that will truly be appreciated then join us at CozyToes. We use a very basic pattern. Any size because they will fit someone. And no pressure. Donate when ever you're able.
Many of the residents have no one who visits or take care of them. What a difference you can make in their lives. Oklahoma winters can be very cold and you can help keep their feet warm when the temps dip below freezing.

A gift for M & M

Had some left over yarn from the blanket so I dug through patterns and came up with this.

I am looking for just the right buttons for the yoke. Can't wait to see Maddie wearing it.

With love from Nana

Once we knew for sure a precious little girl would be part of our family I got started on
a blanket for her. It turned out to be a bit
more of a job then I had thought but.....
I'm very pleased with the results.

Peacock Feathers

I decided to try my hand at sock designing.

This is my first attempt. The pattern puckered

at bit but when you put it on it stretches out and

looks great. I wet mine and blocked it.

I call them Peacock Feathers.

Never to old

My new Toy.....

Jimmie said I am too old.

Yeah, right. I'm having a blast.

Just wish it would stop raining so I

could ride it more.

Gas mileage......60-70 mpg.

My new granddaughter

Think's a girl.

And Nana is so excited.

November 3rd is the due date.

My knitting needles are clicking away.

Ebay..the place to shop.

I love ebay..I bought this yarn (and a bit more). I typed in hand dyed yarn and a ton of it popped up.

The color was calling out to me....Monkey socks by Cookie.

Also I made the sock blocker with the coat hanger and love it.

Girls Night Out

Got together with a few of my Red Hat Friends for a night out.

First we went to dinner. This group likes to eat out, then on to the theater. We attended the live production of "Grease". Can you tell we had a blast?
