  1. Whoot Hoot!!!

    Gorgeous work, as always. Can't wait to see what you have dialed up for CL Project 3. You clearly have an eye for what you look good in! I am finally getting to know mine-self when it comes to projects. Its a learning curve to know my curves. ;) Hugs veelau

  2. Ain't it the truth, Laura. Ahhh, if only we all had the idea silhouette.
    In the meantime.
    I've picked a Wendy D Johnson shawl pattern
    http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sheldon-and-leonard
    I post the particulars in a day or so.
    Haven't knit but a couple of garments and only lately have I even tried.
    The fifty pair of sox which fit any ol' foot silhouette are my
    only garment-ish projects. So it's a learning curve.
    Oh, yeah, thanks for the Whoot Hoot!!!

  4. Ha, I looked in the mirror this morning and said the exact statement, that was my mother's face looking back at me!
    Gerry, I know I've said it before, but really and truly, your Blueberry Lemonade sweater is beyond beautiful. And you...oh you are just so stunning and I love your hair. I ask at the salon about having my hair done all in a silver, but they wouldn't do it. I need a new salon.
    It's super hot and humid here, I for one cannot wait until winter!

  7. You wear both of your latest KAL's very well. Now we just need some cooler weather so you can enjoy wearing them. Nearly 6 miles of yarn. You certainly deserve a Whoot Hoot...

    1. Hey, Betty, I'll take your Whoot Hoot! ! !
      Six miles of yarn, it's hard to imagine.

      I'm enjoying the challenges of garment knitting.
      Some triumphs some defeats ! ! !

  19. Hey, you hotazzknitter! ! ! ! ! ! ! Thanks for the compliment, gal !

    I was more surprized that anyone how much I did accomplish over the month's time.

    I enjoy time at the sewing machine, very much. Love the fabric I was creating with, very much. Plus I had everything at hand that I needed for each project.

    And, YOU know about the love of knitting.

    Whether it's the sewing machine needle or the knitting needle time slips away while I create.

    Thanks for visiting with me on my blog.

    hugs
