I've got a great ambition to die of exhaustion rather than boredom.

My pet peeve is boredom.
That is why my hands must keep busy.
All the time.
Knitting gives me the feeling of accomplishment.
I don't know why but it does.
Right now I am working on two projects.
Last year I made this pattern for my kids.

This wonderful eyelet cowl is so easy to make.
The pattern is from Vogue knitting magazine.
(BTW isn't she gorgeous!?)
This year I was commissioned to make this pattern here.
It is so gorgeous and easy (well not really...) to do.
I will definitely be making this one for the child who will be feeding my ego........
So get working girls!

The one thing that is a must for me when I knit is buying expensive yarn.
After all I'm hoping to hand it down from generation to generation.
(...this is what Bubby Faygie made in 2012...)
Imagine that!
Here is the first of my projects from the "Rainbow Connection"

I added orange instead of blue.
I had no idea these were the Miami Dolphin colors.
I guess I am a Miami girl after all!

The pattern is from the same book as my Alef Bais cardigan.
I love the crispness of the colors and the clean lines of the cotton.
Got to do the sleeves and I'm done.
Yay me!

Faygie, that great ambition does sound like the girl I knew in high school, YES! Adventurous to a fault. I remember you saying you would try anything once. I said, "ANYTHING?" ?For the past three decades I've been thinking of things you would NOT try once. (You probably tried them all.)
