In Knitting Knews, I have made much progress on THE SHAWL since my last post! I have finished the thousands of stitches that make up the hem ruffle on the main portion of the shawl, and I have bound off all 1198 stitches on the bottom - Yay! Now, I just pick up the collar stitches, and knit a pretty ruffle there to match, and then the bride will be prepared! Yes, the bride will be prepared with a wool shawl for her August wedding. . .No, she probably won't need a shawl. . .Yes, I needed to knit it for her, and I am prepared for the possibility that it will not be worn much.* But, it is very pretty, and I am glad that I have knit it for her. :)I hope that you have someone to knit for who senses the love in each stitch. Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!

Those of you who follow know that rabbits nag me. The felt bunnies that I made in honor of the holiday season, they are terrible nags. . .and my self-esteem was really starting to take a major hit when they questioned the quality of my Gramma-hood. I have finally quieted them (at least a little bit) by showing them that I do indeed have pictures of the Peanut at my desk. . .I try to keep this brag book at my desk at all times when I am in the office, and I made a book for both of the great-grandmothers as well. Grammas gotta be prepared, and well-armed with photos, when friends ask about babies!Grammas also gotta be prepared for the little ones when holidays come up! That's why I gave this Grandma I know 4 bunnies to send to her little "Peanuts" for Easter! Heck! Even the bunnies, created for the sole purpose of being given away, gotta be prepared for that eventuality! I think some of the bunch was surprised when this little cutie stopped into my office last week, and I handed over a sister bunny and a brother bunny. . . But who am I kidding? The bunnies will all get over their separation anxiety, and the kids will all have fun with the bunnies! I just hope they don't get overrun. . .I didn't have any of the bunnies spayed or neutered. . .!
"I Know, right?!? She had both of US fixed!"
"Oh, the shaaame!"
"And she wakes us up super early on SATURDAY!"
"I wish I was a bunny. . ."
*I have decided not to staple the shawl to Dollface, Andrea. But thanks for the suggestion. :)
