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 life, 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
