Hello Everyone

I know it has been a while since my last blog entry but I have been a very busy girl. Since I last wrote I have visited back home in Michigan, had Emily and Alaina visit here for a four day weekend, finished Tracy’s brown Ana Sweater, finished the Mystery Stole 4, worked on several cross stitched shawls for the wedding. I have also put on my needles a red sweater for Debbie instead of the shell from More Big Girls, a white lace cardigan for Alison’s mom. But the most fun I have had is hand dying and had dye painting silk scarves for Christmas.

 

So to catch you up on all the happening I thought I would just take you through some pictures.

 

The third week in September Emily Ann and Alaina came to visit. We had a BALL! There was:

 

Bath time.

 

Nap time:  

 

A Visit to the “World of Coke”

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We went out to dinner, out for lunch, and lots and lots of shopping!!!

Alaina was so good and we had a great time together.

 

 

I then went to visit up north to attended the “Reaching Higher Gala” I had a great time and was able to help raise some much needed funds for a wonderful organization.

 

My daughter Tracy meet me at the airport and whisked me away to the Detroit Zoo! I had not been to the zoo in years and loved it. The weather was on the chilly side. I have become a true southern gal. But the animals were all out and running around. We meet up with Carrie, Sarah, and Ali. We had a great time together and closed the place down. I thought they may have to go find us and drags us out.

 

 

 

We Saw:

  Loins

 

 and Tigers and

 

  and Polar Bears OH MY

 

 

 

We ate Indian Food at Priya My favorite Indian place to eat ever! What a treat!

I visited with my three dearest friends. Patsy, Kathy S. and Karen.

 

I went to Lunch and had dinner with Karen then I went to Karen’s knitting class at one of my all time favorite knitting stores. Ewe-Nique Knits

 

  I had a wonderful time and so miss Karen. But good friends always keep in touch!!!!!

 

Karen had a surprise for me she had got me a gift certificate from “Stonehedge Fiber Mill” in East Jordan Michigan. Which I thought was wonderful but then found out that I had just bought some of thier yarn at the “Knitch” in Atlanta for Debbie’s red sweater. I did not even know it until I got home. All I knew is I loved the touch and the color. Should have known.

I am Knitting the Bountiful Bohus by Chrissy Gardiner it is in the book More Big Girl Knits. This is one great book. It really helps with sizing and making the best looking piece possible. the sweater is done in the round then you cut steeks to create the opening. This is the first time I will ever use Steeks. Wish me luck. I will have to take some pictures and write about this one!

It has been soft and just great to knit.

 

I have also been have a great time making dyed scarfs. I have really enjoyed the results some are more free form, others are hand painted.

 

 

I also finished the Ana Sweater for Tracy. Thank God! It really came out nice and so very soft.

 

 

I finished the sweater just as the car came to pick me up for the airport to head home. I was so glad to have it done. The truth was that I had to finish it I had no more room in my suitcase to take it back. Done Done Done.

 

So this is what I have been up to. Hope all is well with you take care.
