bubble gum pink panties

these were in the latest issue of "knits". couldn't resist trying; whoo-hoo; what fun. they took maybe three hours, mostly because i'm not so good at the cable cast on for the waistband part. i used Bernat Cool Crochet; cuz woah...that color i'll be giving them to my younger daughter after she delivers my granddaughter and NO you can't see a pix of her wearing them.

after the storm

needletart posted in to ask me if i were alright after the storm. I am. the storms were further south. Frightening, to know that a storm can sweep in " 'round midnite", folks wake up to a very different world.
something to think about. our caves are a bit better than they usta be but we are still just an inch or so inside of the great outdoors. remember those commericals? it's not nice to fool with mother nature. Lady, we ain't trying to fool ya'. just trying to stay warm and dry.

chilly weather at last

i just don't like it that's all. really, i know 48degrees is not that cold, but i just don't like it.
what i do like is my new job. working as customer service for the local bus line. irony, i've been complaining about the local bus service for so long, but now i'm on the other side of the door. making good money and honestly trying to help. feels good when i can.
also, sitting down, i'll be able to knit a little more, read some,and make some new friends. all good, eh?
i'm making my new boss a pair of fingerless mitts. she's a nice lady with sore hands. they are called "twin rib fingerless mittens" i hope you can and will google that. i plan to make the headban from the twin rib also.
here is an old photo of Baby . She's so young here her eyes are not turned gold yet. she is still just that cute.
