thank you so very much for the tea cozy love in my previous post :)
: : beginning knitting classes began, although for abby and amy above, it was their second time to come. wee six year old abby is the youngest person i've taught, and as proud as she is, i am prouder. today she completed her first garment, a scarf for her pig, wilbur (of charlotte's web) i let her choose a button from my jar for her scarf, i love how delighted she is, it fits! abby and her mama are part of a home school group that's learning to knit in my classes. if your reading this, happy happy almost seventh birthday abby. see you next week. and don't worry, i won't go to africa before your classes are done. (her mama told me she was worried ) :)
: : 'leah's lovely cardigan' is finished. except the buttons, which i forgot to look for. for the photos, old mother of pearl ones stood in just fine. my daughter was more than happy to take these of me, when she realized she would be using my camera. thank you honey :)
she had fun playing photographer and she did a wonderful job i think. i had to get new head shots of her today too, her agent requested red hair, so new dye was used. california blondes (her agent said) are too common and don't get work. we'll see and maybe cross our fingers a little too.
: : and after a four month wait, the wool i ordered arrived to my lys (local yarn store) it's tosh dk by madeline tosh, in the colorway, well water. i think the timing turned out to be just right after all. casting on for this tonight, so happy to finally be making it...
: : joining with ginny of small things and all the other lovely yarn alongers here. (can't believe i forgot my book, a part of the yarn along, again.) :)
