Michael The Artist

On Sunday we went to the Springfield Art Museum to look at the delightful artworks of the Springfield Elementary students of which Michael was a collaborator with his fellow students.  See the rainbow tree behind him.  There is some of his handiwork.


Met up briefly with the sweet gals from the Knitworthy Podcast Linda and her daughter Brianne.  So nice to listen to them as I knit on little hats.

Lenten Knitting

The pattern is here and I'm using Baby Bee Sweet Delight in baby camo.  This is for a baby weighing 3-4 lbs.  It would have fit my last baby Michael.  Going to see how many little hats I can make for lent as well as working on and off on another baby blanket.
This Saturday marks the 10th year of blogging.  Going to celebrate with a cake and knitting and praying:~)

Kittens Are Growing

Shadow is usually found at Norm's left arm or at his feet while he works.  Penny will lay on the floor or up on the back of the loveseat.  They are opposites as Penny is more laid back and Shadow is more sporty.  She will even play fetch with an aluminum ball and thinks nothing of running over Norm to fetch.  Both are well loved and as you can see are growing bigger.  Shadow is more vocal and Penny is more quiet.  We are looking forward for spring to introduce them more to the outdoors fun.  Hope you are staying warm and having the best Lent ever!!
