Tai's cowl

It's Queensland Merino in the Peacock colorway. Some seed stitch at the neck end and drop stitch to open it up near the face. She liked mine so much she wanted one of her own! Happy to oblige.

Perhaps I'll show it to you........tomorrow.

Will you be mine?

Meet Jellybean. He made friends with the
penguin on top of our telly, but knew he
was destined to give his heart to another......

She said yes!!!!

Marion says I should use this for my logo on softies.....she's a clever one, that girlie!
(He's made from an old sweater and really did have a hole there....)

I've had the mousie idea kicking around in my head for a few weeks now. I was really stumped and couldn't get my head around how to make him the way I wanted. Then, last evening, the sky parted, the heavenly choir sang, and as I trolled my favorite blogs, Molly Chicken saved the day. She is an amazingly creative woman--I love her! Go visit and prepared to be tickled pink by her delightful menagerie.

Happy Valentine's Day! Don't eat too much candy.

Quirky with a side of boring and a smattering of unremarkable.

Tagged by Judith (friend of Mandella and thereby friend of mine), I relate unto you these 6 trivial and unimportant tidbits about your humble narrator. Going to add photos just for fun.

1. When I get off the bus to walk up the hill to work, after crossing the street I always step up onto the sidewalk between the fire hydrant and the traffic light pole.

2. I was the world's pickiest eater as a child. I'm a bit better now. A bit.

3. It's been brewing for some time now, but after watching the premiere of Top Gear's Season 12 and watching far too many You Tube clips, I've finally realized that I have a terrific crush on James May.

4. I find macadamia nuts to be a waste of time .

5. I am extremely myopic, a perfect candidate for refractive surgery, and after 20+ years in ophthalmology, you couldn't pay me to have it done.

6. On many occasions throughout my life, I have gotten so excited about traveling that I have literally made myself sick.

I know that this one has made the rounds, so I will break the rule and not tag forward, but if anyone is interested in playing along, please do! Thanks, Judith!
