I have been knitting the one thing that I know how to knit and have been knitting these since I was in middle school. I never progressed beyond these. OK I did knit 2 needle mittens a few times but these are my staple.I pick up good yarn at the thrift store when I see it for my Christmas slippers. And this pair is for a very small girl who will be walking very soon! 11months old yesterday.
Since David's appetite hasn't really returned yet I have been baking for him. I made his favorite choc chip cookies, I threw in a some craisins very yummy.
I really couldn't have Christmas and no decorations, so this is the table in the family room that faces the fire place. I used the large rug I hooked under it and an old quilt top, with a handmade snowman and a wire reindeer. I can't do much more because of dust etc for David........
and speaking of David we made another trip to Boston, numbers are great, and everything is going well. The first test was done to see how many of his brothers cells have taken over. It will take 2 weeks to get it back. When this is done David and his brother will have the same DNA amazing right?
The weather here is warm and wonderful. The best part is all the snow from last week is gone!
I have not shopped for one thing I think it will be cash or gift certificates. Really we are a very blessed family so no one needs much. Thank you for all of your wonderful comments and to the reason the cat can not be on David is scratches. Of course he shouldn't breath in gobs of hair either but it is the scratch they are most concerned with and she likes to kneed before she sits in your lap.OUCH
So in closing I will leave you with some words from the late great John Wayne......
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean.
It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
