Kelli keeping warm

Kelli Scarr (of the band Moonraker....check them out) wearing one of the hats I made her.

These are the tulips that William sent me for Valentine's Day. We never really "celebrated" this day in the past, but I think he wanted to surprise me (and he did).

Work it Grandma!

Grandma called me when I got home yesterday asking if I had had a chance to make the red hat she asked me for last week. Well, it had completely slipped my mind and I felt horrible. I asked her when she needed it and she said Wednesday for a Valentines dance she was going to at a senior's center. So I hung up the phone, went to my yarn stash and came across some TLC Amore yarn in two shades of red and frantically went to work making the tam. About 1 1/2 hours after that, I went to work on a scarf to match and to make myself feel better about forgetting the hat in the first place. I took it by her place after work and she LOVED it, it looked so cute on her, perfect fit and everything. My mother, who had been over the night she called and learned I had forgotten, went by and saw the set. She felt compelled to call since I'm sure she talked about me not making the hat in the first place. She was shocked that I had made time to make the set for her and she said she loved the yarn and colors (that'll teach you to talk about people mom!).

Here is a picture of a pair of glasses I chose offline. What do you think?

First of all, thanks Deneen for sending me the wonderful shawl. The photos do not do it justice. I really like the yarn you chose, it's so soft and the colors are so funky. It's funny that when it arrived (Saturday), it went perfectly with what I was wearing so I wore it for the rest of the day. It fits perfectly, I love it.

Deneen also sent the coolest little orange (I love orange) pouch, that rolls out and had some really nice stitch markers in it. Brilliant idea Deneen, so convenient!

I finally broke down and went to see an eye doctor on Saturday morning. It has been quite a while since I've had my vision checked, and I've been having some problems. Well, it looks like I should be wearing glasses...all the time now! I know this is going to take some getting used to. I'll probably feel very self conscious at first, like I"m wearing a costume or something. I'm eager to get my glasses to see if I really see better though, that'll be nice.

The weatherman is talking of the chance of wintery weather for tomorrow morning. I know that tomorrow will be a very hectic day, we've got a deadline at work, and I know that it'll probably just blow over my area as usual and I'll be making that familiar Monday morning drive tomorrow, but the kid in me is hoping I'll wake up to snow on the ground and the morning news team announcing closings. I'm going to put out some positive wintry thoughts anyways.
