It wasn't easy trying to take a photo of this. Do you block baby blankets? It does make them bigger - but it shows mistakes that you wouldn't otherwise see. Posted by Picasa

Tommy had no problem making himself at home!

All Natalie wanted for her birthday was a pet - a kitten. We went to the shelter and found Tommy, but they were offering 2 for 1. Mona Lisa came home to be my kitty. At least that was the plan. Kind of like going to the shelter for one kitten. Mona Lisa stays in Natalie's room most of the day and spirits around the house at night. She just floats by like a ghost!

I am anxious to see who comes to visit me here.
This may be redundant for some - I can't decide on the best way for me to blog so I am trying out 3 different sites.

This is so different than when starting out with email. It seemed that I had to constantly come up with new names to sign up with because what I wanted had been taken. I guess this is new enough that I haven't had that problem with blog sites.

Hmm, let me add a photo here - I have a lot to learn about blogging! This is a corner of the Paisley Shawl that was in Interweave Knits. I have always loved paisley. But I haven't the need for another shawl. My dearest friends daughter is expecting a baby soon, so I thought that I would try smaller needles and thicker yarn to make a baby blanket. I love the way it came out - but the color - Quarry Run - is more girly than I thought it would be - so I now have another small shawl. sigh. I think I will use the pattern again for a baby blanket. I like the way knitting from the center out distributed the colors in the yarns. I am sure my paisleys will come out "neater" the second time around.

A place to begin

This is my start of the Aran Weight Victorian Lace Shawl - need to find a shorter name for it!
There is a yahoo group doing a knit along for it. They do have a button - I just don't know how to add it to my blog - yet!
