Wow! I whooshed right by my one year blogaversary. My very first post was on August 23, 2007. Didn't think I could do this, but let my daughter talk me into it and I have had a ball and made many new friends. Thanks Kel. And thanks to my blog I am a member of Ravelry--a great knitting and crocheting on line community--I never would have found this site without my blog. So--Happy Belated Blogaversary To Me and happy knitting to all of you. Sorry--no contest--no time.

Yep--I lined Lucy. I think that a lined bag is much nicer to use. I used to make a lot of my children's clothes when they were young, but that was a long, long time ago, and I haven't really tackled any sewing projects in years. But I am very pleased with the lining I did. Happy knitting.

The black and white puppy was our Smokey who passed on July 5, 2005. He was part Jack Russell. We really miss him. But he loved corn on the cob.
The brown and white puppy is our Jill, we call her our Jill Russell. She is 2 years old and we got her in March. And guess what she likes--you got it--corn on the cob!!
Don't know if dogs on Thursday is a group you belong to or just what some people post. You can let me know Natalie.
Just thought you all might enjoy this post. Have a great day!!

I bought the yarn and the pattern to make the Lucy Bag from my LYS this past winter. Finally Started her in May and finished her July 26. Very boring, simple knit and I love the finished product--plan to line her and use her this winter. I am making another one as we speak, along with a cabled felted purse and a pair of socks which are all on the needles. Made with 3 skeins of Lamb's Pride wool mohair blend by Brown Sheep Company in brown heather. Love the way it felted and would use it again for felting.
Hubby is doing great right now and we are making plans for our fall vacation after having to cancel the summer one. Knitting will be going along and hope to once again visit the Knitting Up A Storm yarn shop in N. Myrtle Beach while we are gone. Happy Knitting to all.
