I made this tam for one of my best friends, Kelli, since she lives in NC I thought I would use Karaoke, The mixture of wool and bamboo would make it nice and light.

I love this !

Just had to post about my girl. I know it is a little old news wise, but is so extraordinary I had to grab these Photos from The Boston Globe.

Hi There...Where the Hell is Spring ?

I can't believe it has been so long since I have blogged.
A lot of my favorite blogs have gone quiet. I am not sure why. I jnow that I was spending some yime on Facebook and other things, I got my tweets going on as you can see ! Hee Hee ! But I have missed my little blog. Ya'll miss me ? All 5 of you ?

Well I have been knitting but not taking enough pictures. I have ended my carreer as a yarn snob and used Berocco Comfort for a baby project. it was great, I really enjoyed working with it. I made a layette featuring the Trellis pattern as a little mannish manly cardi! And I also made the Pimp My Longies Pattern for little pants, What a fun little pattern. I am going to incorporate this pattern into my Charity Knitting portfolio. What makes the pants cool is his adorable little gusset at the crotch. What could be warmer than little longies ? O I swoon... A lot of the patterns were just tubes, but this has flair.

The Charity Drive was an amzing success, We were blessed with gifties fom some very nice people, plus we recieved a delivery of five huge boxes packed chock full of knitted things.

I goota go. But I will be back soon. Sorry no pix. They are on Flickr I think...

Thanks for your help.

I can't believe it !!!

Baby sweater still not done.

Arrrrgh !

I can't believe that I ran out of buttons. When I went to pick them out, I only had ten bucks on me. Baby buttons, I mean how much could they cost ? I am not complaining really, because the buttons are very sweet, but I only bought 6 when I needed 7.

Well, the hat is done any way.

OKC !!!

This was an knitting blog , right ? I will report three FO's- Finished Objects.

A pair of "Sweeties" Fingerless mitts my own design. Knit in Karaoke, didn't they match up nicelt ? I am amused at my own cleverness !

...and a picture of The Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby cardigan blocking on wire hblockers. The front edges of this little cardigan can be a little wonky. This is the first time used these blockers picked up during my trip west ( as in slightly to the west of Boston, with reanie beanie last year. They worked rather well.
