I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

Here is the start of my Little Shawlette..(I couldn't resist putting my latest picture of the two grand girls,Fiona and Willa, next to it LOL! )

The pattern is from Susan B. Anderson and uses the most yummy yarn ever:
"Miss Babs Yowza Whatta Skein" (560 yds in one skein!!--) the softest yarn I've used....

It will have a ruffled edge and I love the dark denim color as I wear jeans all the time...

Here is an older picture of 'Kota on our beach investigating a hidden crab...
she is such a darling doggie...we love having her stay over with us.

Today Willa has had ear tubes surgery as her hearing has been impaired by all the fluid blocking the canals.  Hopefully, in 2 -3 weeks she will resume her chattering...

Tomorrow we are going to hear our oldest Grandson, Steven, perform in his High School Jazz Band; they have set up round tables for family groups and have coffee, tea, water and snacks available--like a little Jazz Club setting.  
AND you can dance--will I be doing the Lindy??? hahahaha...
(not a pretty visual!!   ;--000 )

Hugs to you all--my hand is still resting, but cannot wait to get back to my knitting.

  2. Lovely yarn, the color is fabulous. I wear jeans all the time too. Enjoy the concert!

  3. Very pretty scarf, the yarn is fantastic! Adorable grandbabies :)

  4. That shawl is going to be gorgeous! Excellent choice for the color, too. I know that it'd be perfect for me, too, as I wear nothing but jeans. ;-) Praying for successful surgery for Willa.
