Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

I hope that all of you have had a great holiday weekend. Sorry I missed wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving on here. I have had a whirlwind of the last 2 weeks. My Mom has come to visit from NY. We have had a very nice visit, with shopping etc as part of the visit.

Last Saturday, the 22, we met up with my daughters for breakfast at a local Cracker Barrel Restaurant and then went to an antique mall. We had a great time there and I found a great basket, to use for another knitting project, and a bunny door stop. You can see them in the picture.

If you are interested in yarn, that is Berroco Linen Jeans hanging there. I received 7 skeins as a barter for knitting some shop samples for Delightful Hands yarn shop in Celina, TX.

Now, my big news, I have been awarded the Marie Antoinette award from my mom's work .

Listed below are the rules for the award.
1. Please put the logo on your blog.
2. Place a link to the person from whom you received the award.
3. Nominate at least 7 or more blogs.
4. Put the links of those blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message on their blogs to tell them.

So, now I need to nominate some of my crafty friends, who have blogs.

New Knitting Projects

I have been busy creating again. This is one of my two patterns for a neck warmer. I wanted to have a fairly easy pattern, but one that is timeless. The stitch pattern will actually help to give an effect of elongating my, or anyone elses neck. The first time I knit it up, I used knitting needles that were too big and the thing just flopped all over the place. So, the second time I knit it, I used a smaller size needle and I really like how it drapes now! I also thought it would be a nice feature to be able to wear it upside down if someone had a v-neck coat, so I turned it upside down and I really like it that way too!
If you like this pattern, it is listed on my etsy site at . If you go out there and you cannot find it, that is because it was purchased. Watch my site and you will see it listed again.
