welcome to Anita
she lives in New Jersey

SURPRISE, surprise!!!

Hi all!

You will never believe what arrived in the mail today! The "stolen" gloves that I worked so hard on last year. Yes, those beautiful gloves that I thought were gone forever came home! There was no letter of explanation except that they were mailed from the Co. Fair people.

I am speechless!! For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, take a look at the Hall of Fame--Sherry G. I exhibited those gloves in our county fair and when I went to pick them up, they were gone and no one had an explanation. Now, 6 months later, here they are!

Color me HAPPY!

Getting close to where I frogged from

I should be hitting new yarn soon. I am getting close to where I frogged from. I just hope what I just volunteered to do does not keep me from knitting. A friend is getting married in August and when she was here visiting a couple of weeks ago I offered to make her an something lace for her wedding. She was back this weekend. It looks like I will be making a tatted garter and a crochet flower girl basket. The good thing is I have made both patterns before. Yet I am having trouble finding the thread vendors tonight. Such is life.

Changing th epattern a little + what has kept me from finishing

It is hard to believe how time has flown. So I went digging back though the months of the blog to find what I was looking for. I found it. Now after taking some time [paper and pencil). I think I am going to make the diamonds like Hilla showed a picture of hers on June 8, 2007 between the snowflake cuffs and the thumb gusset snowflakes. I was not sure I cared for that part when I worked it the first time following the pattern. So that is where I am to date after frogging.

I did a pair of socks that seemed would never end, made 4 baby afghans (all different patterns), next I was asked to make a scarf that turning out barley making it's deadline, followed by 4 pairs of dull felted mittens. The first two were late, the other two had no deadline. After I finished dear youngest son asked for a pair and I said I needed a break from that pattern I would get them by next winter. So tonight watching and old Dick Van Dyke Disney movie Lt. Robin Crusoe I got up to this point for the second time. Moving forward again I hope. I did volunteer to make some things for an August wedding, if she takes me up on it I will have to put them aside to get done what I offered to do. (Tatting and crocheting)
