Rowan Tweed

The movies......will have to wait until another day.....

Instead....Man In Black made a terrific pizza for dinner and we're relaxing......

Relaxing is good.....it's a big part of my plan for 2012...

I'm knitting another hat tonight.....for a very special little girl.....

I'll tell you about her when I've finished the hat and you can see for yourself what a special
little girl she is.....I think you'll agree.

So here's the skinny on the hat....
The yarn I love??

Rowan Yorkshire Tweed DK-I have to look for another label....I don't see a color #
Needle Size 5
Cast On 88
K2,P2 for 10 rows
From there on out....knit until you are cross eyed....about then you'll end up with a long slouchy too.

I used 1 & 1/2 skeins....I think I'll make another....

Ok, see the flatware????
This was a gift.....a super surprise from my sister-in-law.....who is without a doubt..

The Queen of thrift store shopping....if you are looking for something = she will find it.....
and it's always "good stuff".



There is a skill to this...she can find anything....and in lickity split time.

See you tomorrow...

Love the hat -- sounds simple enough. I may have to try this one!

The flatware is awesome. Great to have a good scout with you when thrifting. :)

Great new hat, super cute! I love that you are enjoying yourself these days and making time to "simply" relax with your man. What i really want to know is when are we going to be able to get you guys to come "relax" down here for a day?
