I was cleaning up my knitting area and came across a few WIP's. There were some mittens that I'll probably never finish, a pair of socks that I may finish some year, and this bug puppet. I had the body almost complete so I picked it up and finished it. For now she is mine. Maybe someday she'll belong to a grandchild (10 years or so from now).

Christmas already?

I know it's only May.
I know Christmas isn't for 7 more months.
I do know these things but............

I was looking through my stash the other day and came across three skeins of bulky yarn. I looked at them and thought scarf. Then I thought, but for who. Kathy!! She lives in Oregon. I knit for her every Christmas and she wears scarves. She doesn't read my blog so I'm safe posting this.

Let's hope I don't forget where I put it. Is it too early to start a Christmas area in my closet?

Autumn's Bat

As long as Kevin has friends I will never run out of knitting. Autumn saw some of my knitted animals and told me she LOVED bats and would I please make her one.

Introducing Boo #4.

Autumn was so happy when I gave it to her.

There's nothing better than knitting for someone who appreciates it.

Bunny #4

On Mother's Day an online friend found out she was pregnant. I needed a quick congratulations gift and since these bunnies are so easy...........

Sarah's Dishcloths

I don't like asparagus but Sarah makes the most amazingly incredibly awesome pickled asparagas and I'm addicted to them. The problem, she lives in Oklahoma. Thankfully her mom goes and visits once a year and brings some home for me. This year I got a bonus and she was coming out for a visit. We decided on a trade. Dishcloths for asparagus. The first picture of five is my payment. The second two are on their way to her now as a down-payment on the next batch.

Thanks again Sarah.............. yummmmmmmmm!!!
