    My first plan was a sweater for new babe. Of course I went to gramps for the hack! Here’s my finished sweater.
    Motif is from Island Flowers

    That is such a wonderful idea! That is exactly what I wanted to do, but I didn’t have a name for it and I really didn’t fully commit to it, but NOW I get it!

    I’m IN!

    You have such a good attitude about making things. I wonder how you accomplish so much with 2 little ones? I love those dolls!

    I love that idea! A few years ago I got a lovely calendar from Knit Picks, and documented the start, and finish of all the knitting projects — at the end of the year I was impressed with 78 completed, which is not bad for a full-time worker with part-time work on the side! I have begun that again this year, but also trying to add a bit more detail, like abandonment and why, and purchases of knitting-related ‘stuff’. A blog might be fun, just for me to keep track with pictures. Hmmmmmm…..
