I almost forgot. Tomorrow is my Birthday. 57 this year.

Jeff is taking me to Outback restaurant tonight for dinner.
Yummy. He printed off a menut, and a 7 oz filet, is calling
out to me. Sounds yummy.

So, leave a comment and wish me a happy. Nothing like
asking for comments. LOL
Saturday Sky

Just a blue sky today. No clouds, but baby, it's cold outside. LOL Took
the picture around 3 PM today.

I should have a wash cloth to show, but frogged it today. Did not like
how itwas turning out, and even threw away the directions. That's
how much I didn't likethe mystery cloth. I'm thinking of frogging the
shawl that I haven't been working on and is stuck on row 8. That's lace,
and the dishcloth was lace. Guess I don't like working on lace.
Maybe in the future but not now.

I am still working on the baby blanket. Slowly knitting towards the far
corner. Will finish that hopefully long enough before the baby comes in
mid April. I also want to make a cuddle thing, you know a small blankie
with a rabbit head on it. I have a really soft yarn to knit it with.
Would like to make it to send with the blanket. Should be able to do that
even if I am a slow knitter.

So, I've been knitting.

Saturday Sky

We went out to lunch at Effort Diner, and on the way out, I took
this Saturday Sky. Figured it wouldn't hurt to have a picture
from somewhere else. Sorry about the electric line, suppose
I could have walked to the car first, and looked back instead
of in front of the place. Such is life.

On the knitting front, I've been working on the baby blanket, but
didn't pick it up for a couple days. Did one row last night.
Decided I need to make a list of all the things I want to knit.
Will need to do that.

Just started the next mystery Dishcloth KAL today. The first rows
came out yesterday and haven't quite finished those yet. Got the
next rows today. So will need to get busy. Have 19 rows all together,
and have only done 6. I'm using Peaches and Creme Pink Lilacs, it's
a pink, white and purple mixture.

So, I've been knitting.

Saturday Sky

Looks like a nice day, but it is so cold, and windy, I took the picture
throught the window. The weather prediction for the week is basically
Party Cloudy, Cold and windy.

I told you last time I would give you an update on the baby blanket.

I spread it out on the bed, but even though I'm decreasing, I can't put it
out flat, still too big and would lose stitches. You can sort of see
the corners where I turned to decrease. Should be able to finish it
before the daughter in law has the baby in the middle of April.

So, I've been knitting.

Warning - Picture Heavy post.

Guess what I found at the post office today. A Box from my SP 9. Lots
of goodies, I'm not sure how she fit it all in the box. I sure couldn't
put it back in well once I had it out.

This is a Warm Vanilla scented fragranced sachet. Two lucious pillows to put
in my drawers to scent my clothes.

The yarn on the left is a lace weight Yarn. The yarn on the right is
Knit Picks Merino Wool Sock yarn. I love the colors. Then looking at
the yarn is a cute Lama, I think he is anyway.

Ok, she told me this is Touch Me yarn. It feels great and she said after
you knit you put it in hot water and it felts a bit, and feels like
velvet. It's a gorgeous blue.

The last yarn she included was Black Forest Handpainted yarn. There are
four skeins there. I believe it's worsted weight, but not sure.

These are called Pillow Heads. Not sure what they are. Cute though.

Then she put in these two gorgeous bracelets. Too bad they are a tad
small, but I am losing weight and maybe they will fit when I lose some

Then at the bottom of the box was this First Book of Modern Lace Knitting,
by Marianne Kinzel. It has directions for crocet lace, two Pins, circular,
and seems to have lots of lace patterns.

Can you believe she gave me all those things. Oh, there were also 3 bath beads.
I've all ready misplaced them. Maybe they are by the tub. Sorry no picture.
But maybe there is enough pictures in this post. Anyway, she revealed herself
and her name is Bronwyn, from Montana. Thanks again, Bronwyn.

I've been working on the Baby blanket. Will put another picture of my
progress next time.

So, I've been knitting.

Well, here is a picture of the KAL Mystery Dishcloth, I've been making.
I don't use them as dishcloths but as washcloths.

After the first row of hearts, I pretty much figured it would have 9
hearts on it. I used a Sugar and Creme cotton yarn in a Tea Rose

I've been reading a book called The Body Signal Secret.
It's about learning to read your own body and whether it's hungry or
not. If hungry, you eat until satisfied. If not, don't eat. I'm
having trouble figuring out when my body is hungry. For years I've
been dieting and eating pretty much constantly. So it may take a
while to figure out when I'm hungry.

Anyway, Since I've been reading it, it's a library book, I haven't been
knitting anything but the twice a month dishcloth. Last night
I picked up the baby blanket and did a few rows. I'm now decreasing,
and it's slowly, getting smaller. Knitting from corner to corner,

Just won two books on Ebay, about knitting Mittens. One's called
something obvious like How to Knit Mittens, and the other is
called Mittens, Mittens, Mittens. So, we will see.

Also, I am just sending an order to a book club for a book on
circular knitting. She uses double points, which I need
practice with.

So, I've been knitting

Saturday Sky

This was taken around noon today. We had a little less than 2 inches
of snow yesterday afternoon. It was around freezing temperatures and
icy last night. Jeff ran the snow blower this morning. First time
we had enough snow to stay on the trees this year. Cooler today, just
21 degrees around 2 PM.

I've been knitting. Still working on the baby blanket. Finally got past the
widest and am now doing decreasing. I will finish it by the time she has the
baby in April.

Also working on the mystery KAL Dishcloth. Looks like a valentine cloth,
we will see. Just got day 3 today and haven't worked it yet.

Haven't done anything on my shawl this week.

So, I've been knitting.
