Finally finished the little project that I started on the beach in St. Martin - a Christmas sweater for Baby Mason. I am pretty darn pleased with it - totally love the yarn and the pattern was a breeze. Now - I am ready to start on some other things on my list - like the blue cabled wrap/scarf that I posted about earlier. Also plan to start on another little project that I am just calling for now - The Next Big Thing. Keep watching---
Bought the yarn at my favorite yarn store - the Hobby Lobby!
I can't post the pattern because I bought it on line - but, I will gladly share it with anyone who wants it - just let me know.

"Let me warn you that a genuine interest in knitting can keep you fascinated, eagerly pursuing it, and never satisfied throughout a lifetime." Rose Wilder Lane
"Those of you who feel that knitting has changed your live, welcome to the club. I can think of no better occupation to reveal your own creativity."
"I knit the afternoon away. I knit reasons for Elijah to come back. I knit apologies for Emma. I knit angry knots and slipped stitches for every mistake I ever made, and I knit wet, swollen stitches that look awful. I knit the sun down. ” Laurie Halse Anderson, Wintergirls
A simple ball of yarn,
a couple of knitting needles,
and every stitch you knit
brings you closer to that clear calm space
in the center of your soul~
I have worked as a neonatal nurse for 35 years. Married to Dan - a retired civil engineer - we love our life and are very blessed to have friends and family that we cherish. We live with kitties who are the "true" bosses of our house and have 5 Grand babies who we love more than life~~~Keri Beth,Kadence Noelle, Mason, Avila Jewel and Maddy. We LOVE to travel and are always either just getting back or just getting ready to go - someplace. Our favorite way to travel is on cruises and we have been around the world and back again. Our journeys have enriched our lives and made us appreciate our wonderful home, our family, and our friends. My suitcases are always in a state of readiness, one for my clothes, and one for my knitting - 2 Bags Full.
