I have been knitting, and am almost done, with the rosette baby sweater. Pictures for you in a day or so.
Also, have been having difficulties leaving messages on 360 blogs. What else is new? Also having problems leaving messages on other blogs where the hosting site is not well-known. Will keep trying to catch up to old blogging friends.
I've been out of sorts with my knitting. I still need to work on the 2nd pair of socks for the exchange with Kim and have been having difficulty finding just the right pattern. I want it to be a pattern that will inspire me to not want to put my needles down.
Kim wants a brown pair of socks. I started a pair and didn't like the yarn till a few inches had been worked. However, if you make a mistake or drop a stitch, you might as well "bag' the project. Tuning in the the stubborn streak that I have, I've started this pattern four times already and have succumbed to defeat. The pattern is not so pretty that it is worth the hassle. So, I will look for other sock yarn and a new pattern at Webs this coming Sunday when I catch up to Briley for the Yarn Harlot event.
I have to tell you this cute story. My former co-worker came to visit last week. I had not seen her two children in quite some time. The conversation went something like this:
Joan: "Keagan, honey, how old are you now?"
Keagan: "I'm three and my sister, Julia, is five!"
There's a pause and...................
Keagan: "And how old are you?"
Joan: (Knowing that I was setting myself up!) "And how old do you think I am?"
Keagan: "I'd say, ahhhhhhhhhhhh 100!" and.............Julia noticing the look of shock on my face...
Julia leans over, cups her hand over Keagan's little ear and says......"No, tell her 89!"...as if that was going to make me feel better!
Don't you just love the innocence of kids!
