On and Off the Needles to Fix a Big Mistake!



Have you ever messed up?  Boy, I sure did.  Remember the shower gift I made for a choir friend?  Well, it turns out she is having a BOY!  Somehow I missed that information and felt like a real idiot.  So this week I've been working on something a little boy could wear, socks and a hat.


The hat is finished, and all that's left on the second sock is to weave the toe together.  Then off they go, something much more appropriate!


The prayer shawl is finished also. That choir friend had her surgery this morning, so I hope this will cheer her up and keep her company through the rest of her treatment.


On the home front, our little guy just had his first "real" haircut, just in time to model the cute sweater knit by his Auntie Jill.


And the cherry trees are blooming now, even though it's chilly and grey.  Have a great weekend!

The prayer shawl is lovely. I know it will bring great comfort to your friend. It will be like having a hug from you any time she needs one.

Little Max looks SO grown up with his "big boy" haircut. The sweater is awesome.

I bet she had a laugh when she saw the others, but the blue set looks good. You sped right through on the knitting of that prayer shawl.

I remember coming home from work one day and my husband had turned our baby into a kid by cutting off the blond curls. What a shock! That baby turned 23 today!
