new stuff

My friend Shirl has done a few KALs to help out in one of our groups while the owner was sick. Now that she's feeling better....Melanie thought it would be a nice surprise to set up a dishcloth KAL group for her. She's so sweet and really enjoys doing the KALs. So, if anyone is interested....come on over to Shirley's Knitting Knook and join us for some friendly chat and two KALs a month. Not a lot of rules....just friends hanging out, chatting and knitting. We'd sure love to have you. You can also leave me a comment (or lilknit...she's gonna be there too of course) and we'll send you an invite. It's gonna be pretty lonely without our friends there to hang out with us.

critter 'n spike

this is critter's new best friend spike... knit by the very talented melanie... she made this lil fella for his birthday and aslo because he has a obsession with ducks...anyways thanks again g/f.... he wants to take him everywhere he...


just wanted to show off our new addition to our family....he was knit up by my very good and very talented friend melanie..... she is so sweet and knit this lil guy up for my youngest who is absolutely obsessed with ducks.... he has way too many to count.... this will definitely be a great buddy for him ... he looks kinda lonely tonight .... i think it is because he has to wait til sunday for his grand appearance....that's when his birthday is.... he is going to wake up and find spike beside him in the morning.... or at least that's the game plan.... i will post pics of spike and my son once i get them paired up... lol....other than that i am still knitting up stuff but don't feel like i am making any progress .... still have soooooo much left to do....laters :Þ
