Joy and Thank Yous


Good morning!!  My week has been fabulous and I cannot wait to tell you why.  I was so lucky to receive some awesome mail deliveries.  Do you remember when George Bailey, in It's a Wonderful Life, talks about train whistles being the wonderful sound? Well doorbells and car honks win this week.  My postal deliverer loves to honk before leaving a package outside our home.  UPS guy takes those extra steps to the front door and rings the bell.  Either way I'm a happy person.


Jodie sent me a lovely swap present.  I was filled with glee opening each item and felt gratitude for the world of knitters.  Thank you Jodie, I love everything!  And a big big thank you to Donna who set up the swap.


Next up is a sweet little treat from Steph.  I feel like I know her in real life just haven't quite met face to face.  I imagine a time in my future where I'm sitting on her porch knitting and swinging and enjoying each other's company.  Thank you Steph!!


Nicole requested some test knitters and I volunteered to help out.  Imagine my delight yesterday when I opened a box and found a perfect tea mug from her thanking me.  Thank you Nicole!  I loved knitting your mitts :)


See that Sheep hat?  Well it is finished and I LOVE it.  So much so, I've cast on another one....I predict a lot of sheep hats in my knitting future.

Have you watched Amanda's videocast all about her knitting?  She is delightful.  I love listening to her and her adventures in knitting.  We were all beginners once and even though I'm a seasoned knitter I find her reflections refreshing.  Thank you Amanda for taking the time to share your knitting with us.

  2. My hat is finished, too!!! And I have enough leftover yarn for a dozen more...slight exaggeration, but unlike you, I'm not ready to cast on another---yet. I will, though. It was a fun, quick knit, wasn't it? Happy weekend!!!
