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?

This kool aid is not for drinking!

My friends and I at Knotty Friends have been experimenting with dying wool.
The shades of red are done with kool-aid and Wilton's icing food coloring.
The green and yellow is done with just kool-aid. It so much fun and addicting.
Got a feeling I will be doing a lot more.
