been doin' a little knittin'

A dickie for Sara.....a dickie for Kevin.... well, I had to present it to him half done,but eventually I did get it completed.It looks gi-normous, doesn't it? I don't think it's supposed to be quite that big, but hey, it should be nice and warm.

Then I got a request from my sister. Would I make one of those Lucha Libre masks for her son, Cody? Black and fire engine red.It's an amazingly quick thing to make. A lot quicker than a dickie for some strange reason.He received it in the mail today and sent me this picture of him wearing it. Looks awesome, I think!Now I'm working on a sweater for Art. It is about 3/4 done, but is crocheted, so should be finished fairly soon. I'm WAY better at crochet than knitting. I'll post pics when I'm done. Between that and the online genealogy course I started this week I'm keeping myself busy.

Happy New Year

Xena and I out on the "trail" yesterday. We have almost completed the circle route of our property. Today will be the northeast section, but would you believe it has warmed up to zero and is RAINING! That'll be enough of that, please. I'm not ready for winter to be over just yet. Now that I've gotten my snowshoe "legs" back (my first day out after something like a 25 year hiatus was neither fun nor pretty) I don't want to stop.
