19 Years And Counting

Here's my dear hubby wearing the vest I made for an anniversary gift with love in every stitch. I used Kertzer Northern Worsted in navy tweed(98% acrylic, 2% viscose) and Caron Simply Soft in dark country blue for the border. I used the Lion Brand Unisex Vest pattern. It replaces the one I made years ago using Lion Brand Wool-Ease which the moths made a meal of. The buttons are the same though.
Thanking God for the blessing of this wonderful man!


After seven years Simply Fibers is closing. It will be sorely missed! It's not like I have about four bins stuffed with yarn or anything;~) Oh well, I guess now I can knit down my stash and not feel guilty about not supporting my local yarn shop. Thanks Carol for a great little shop.

Lego Pride

Michael is so proud of his latest Lego creation I had to share:~D

Hat And Cardigan For A Baby Girl

Using the James C. Brett pattern and Berrocco Comfort yarn this sweet cardigan will fit 3-6 month old. I just made up a matching hat. The buttons are cute cat heads. Really like how this turned out. It's for a sister-in-laws' first grandchild. It's fun to knit for little girls:~D

My Precious

Here's Bobby with his precious mouse toy which we fill with a little catnip. It looks like he's thinking, "Don't even think about touching my precious!!". Oh, how he loves this toy!!!


I won the latest contest held by The Preemie Project by knitting up the most pumpkin hat/bootie sets! Yea!!! I won a beautiful necklace made by lia sophia, the Alpine Necklace to be exact.
I won't be entering the next contest as I am still working on Norm's vest(the back is done and over half of the left panel) and an unexpected baby sweater and hat that needs to be finished asap. Then all other projects on the needles needs to get finished. I'm still yearning to get started on a cross stitch project too, but first things first.
Enjoyed getting some nice gentle rain yesterday even though I had to get out in it. Did some early Christmas shopping and Norm and I tried a new place that makes Korean food. The soup was good but I didn't much care for anything else though Norm ate well. God help me but I'm more of a Paula Dean kind of gal. Getting to spend time with my dear hubby is the best part of it all:~D

Halloween Donation

These are the 20 girl & 20 boy micro burial buntings for those 9 oz and less and 1 boy burial bunting fitting 7 lb or less that I donated to a local hospital St. Johns in honor of my baby brother Jimmy Lee Grantham b/d July 1968. I pray these items bring a bit of comfort for those who are grieving.

Thursday At Simply Fibers

Last Thursday I asked Eric if he would play his cello for the ladies who come to crochet and knit on Thursdays. He consented and though not many got to listen to him those who did enjoyed the lovely soothing music. Thanks Eric for making this mother proud:~D
