Spring Knitting

Dear Mom,
I am a slow knitter. Where Kim can knit an adult sweater in days, it takes me days just to find the proper needles for my project. Another few to work on gauge and correct my needles, if necessary. And still another few to start knitting! My knitting mojo needs to be "just right"; Kim's knitting mojo is never wrong!! I am super excited though!! I started a spring sweater in March (like, actually in the spring)! And FINISHED IT! In time for Spring!
This pattern is the Knitting Pure & Simple Neckdown Shaped T-Shirt #233. I loved everything about this sweater: the simplicity of the neckdown knitting.
The shaping.
The yarn. Fleece Artist Sea Wool. The slight variations of the hand dyed yarn. The beauty of a simple stitch.
Best of all, I'll get to wear it this year!!! Woo hoo!!!!
Love, Wendy


Dear Mom,
If only I could include the fragrance with the pictures.
I filled the soup tureen on the dining room table,

Put a bouquet on my nightstand for sweet dreams,

and put a small vase in the Young Lady's room.




Cats and Clean Tablecloths

Dear Mom,
Why are cats instantly attracted to clean tablecloths? I spread my new tablecloth over the patio table, and 30 minutes later, this is what I found!!
Sweet dreams, Benny!
Love, Bonnie Jo
