A Noro Scarf

This scarf was made from Noro Silk Garden--2 skeins each of color #264 & #267. I didn't really like the thick and thin texture of the yarn and it is not as soft as I like--but the coloring is amazing. The scarf is made from the directions on Brooklyntweed's Blog (aka Jared Flood) All in all the scarf is very pretty. Happy Knitting

Happy Birthday

40 years ago today, at 6:59 am this beautiful bouncing baby came into the world. My firstborn. The love of my life. And she grew. I am so pround of my oldest, not that I'm not proud of the others. There is something special about the firstborn. I learned on her, poor thing. She is a beautiful young woman. Has homeschooled her children, and has worked so very hard to having a loving marriage. She is the greatest daughter named Kelly I know.

What's Up?

Well I haven't been real active here. Had a minor surgery a coupla weeks ago and it isn't healing real well and is causing some pain I don't care for--but such is life--This Too Shall Pass.

So here is some instant gratification knitting. A tribble and a petal dishcloth--my favoite to knit--so fast and easy. Made with Lily Sugar'nCream color faded denim. Was almost done with this when I realized I was using a size 5 needles in stead of an 8--it is rather small--but this enabled the tribble from the same skein. Happy Knitting.
