Many Pics

I am adding a few new pictures to the sight. I want to show all what I've been up to the last few months. The shawl shown here was made this weekend using the Easy Triangle Shawl pattern from Lion Brand. I purchased the yarns from separate locations. The first, organic lamb's wool in rose color, was from the Lamb Festival in Dixion and the second, the brown's from Jimmy Beans Wool in Reno. The socks were made for my grandson. I enjoyed making these. I have made and completed several quilts too. The one in purple was donated to the Sutter Breast Cancer Auction.

My husband and I went to Reno on the spur of the moment. We drove of course on a Friday night and found little traffic. We did a little gambling and went to the room for some away time. I began a shawl, Easy Triangle off of Ravelry, while he slept in the morning. I finished one hank of yarn and realized I was going to need more yarn. Of course being a senseable woman I went to the nearest yarn shop, JimmyBeansWool, and chose a yarn called Venus by Trendsetter, (I had choosen from my stash to use but this looked to be a better chose). On the way home, Hal drove and I knitted. The Venus yarn was a good chose. Now I wish I didn't have to use the other yarn. When completed I will add the picture to the sight. I also purchased some Jasper yarn from Berroco to make a vest.

This picture was taken today of my 2 1/2 month old grandson William and me. I took the picture. He is trying to figure out what is happening. I'm hoping that the picture takes. He is already sitting up or at least trying to sit up and googling, girgling, and cooing. One thing I also notice is that he is spitting more than his brother did.
