some knitting before the year actually ends....

It's 11:45pm-better get something knitting posted before the year changes. :)
today I received a Knit Picks order of some Options tips, double-ended crochet hooks and EZ's Knitting Workshop and Shirley Paden's Knitwear Design Workshop! HAPPY package delivered to our door by our mail carrier-who drove up the snow-melting very slick driveway to a barking Levi, but that's another day another post.
I have completed the pouch knitting on young Brett's Wonderful Wallaby. It's ready to fuse to the body. Small sweaters knit so much faster than larger ones. LOL Imagine that!
And-if any of you noticed the very "in your face" picture I had originally posted of the Miss Bab's cape in French Marigold (orange) I'm now going to post it so it's not so "in your face" but it's a great way to end the year. I was finally able to wear this fabulous cape as I found the PERFECT clasps to finish it off. Here it is. HAPPY NEW YEAR and HAPPY KNITTING!

Happy 20th to my VBF!

it's hard to believe it's been 20yrs but it was dec 31 1990, the phone rang, Danny answered it and yelled, "MOM, IT'S A MAN!"
It was a full moon, a blue moon, and a warm night in deland, fl. We sat in lawn chairs, drinking michelob lights, talking about everything while the boys rode their bikes up and down the road, shouting and being boys.
It was the beginning of where we are now...
