Let me warn you that a genuine interest in knitting can keep you fascinated, eagerly pursuing it, and never satisfied, through a lifetime. Rose Wilder Lane, 1963

Goodies for Mingmay

Look who I met!!
Myrna Stahman came to the store tonight. I was so excited & kinda shy to met her. In the picture I'm wearing one of her shawls (!!). Also pictured is Maureen, who got me addicted to lace in the first place. It was a very fun night. Myrna brought many gorgeous samples & was very friendly.
Now comes the hard part of deciding which shawl to knit first out of her book.....

I have been a very lucky auntie! Niece #2 arrived at the end of May:
And here's a picture of Bella wearing the sweater & socks I made & laying on the blanket I made for her too:

New family member
Perhaps it's fitting to show you our newest family member on Mother's Day. He joined our family because of my love for my sons & their need for a buddy. Meet Bruce:
Or Bruce Wayne, also known as batdog. He hasn't quite mastered the art of smiling for the camera.
He is a 80lb puppy! And as you can see he is the only one who can actually wear my boys out.
I always thought I wasn't a dog person. Then I thought maybe I could live with a small dog. The boys picked up on that & started praying for a dog. And God heard them & sent us the perfect puppy. Very lovable, very playful, & completely in love with the boys. And surprisingly enough, I'm starting to fall for him too.
There is lots of knitting going on too. I'm loving spring/summer knitting & the yummy yarns. I love that I'll have 2 nieces very soon & all the cute things I must (& some I already have) knit for them. Fun times.

Many new adventures have been keeping me busy. Moving, working, kids growing up, and lots more. One of the more exciting things is my (other) niece:
Meet Mingmay. Adorable, isn't she?
And I also started a blog for my designs.
More updates coming soon....
