Happy 2011, everyone!!
We had a white Christmas in Georgia.
All of the grandkids were sick with the flu when I arrived
and couldn't play outside.
That makes snow a kind of a cruel joke!
I ended up in the hospital for four days, with Bronchitis.
When I came back, I had several more days of bed-rest.
The little grandbrats were better by then (thank God!)
and came to my room, to bless me with their smiles!
There's nothing better!!
(OK, maybe a piece of cheesecake is a close second.)
Then the cable was down for three days.
To keep busy I started knitting the little one a scarf.
I was told she likes to 'accessorize'. I'm all for that!
My granddaughter (who just turned eight on Christmas Day)
decided she wanted to learn to knit.
(I may need to borrow that outfit!)
My six year old grandson, not to be outdone, picked up the needles too.
Then he used them as swords.
The finished scarf.
Let's see if she likes it...
Yes! A smile!
She gave the floor a good wipe with it.
A quick shake.
Let's try it as a hat. A nice fit indeed.
And it can keep my knees warm.
I have an idea!
Let me see how far apart I can spread the stitches,
with my bony little fingers!!
Or, maybe I can wear it like this.
Yes, definitely like this!
Thank you! I love it! It's SO me!!
The cable still wasn't working, so I knitted another scarf.
This one was for my son's friend.
I'd knitted him one last year, but he said "a dog tore it up".
In my vivid imagination, I saw a rabid dog, teeth gnarling, leaping at his throat!
When, in actuality,
he'd left it where a dog could reach it and use it as a chew-toy.
My granddaughter wanted to help again.
(I just want to kiss that adorable little hand!)
The TV is working, the internet is up and running,
the scarves are completed, the kids are healthy again
and I felt good enough to write another blog-post!!
2011 is going to be a good year!!!!!!!! :-]
Happy New Year to you all!!
There are SO many things to love!
I love "Followers" and comments too!
Signing off for now,
