Sad News:

On Friday, August 17, 2007 my wonderful sister Pam lost her battle with non-skin related Squamous Cell Carcinoma. She was 51, and fought a long hard battle with cancer. She is now free of pain, both physical and emotional. The world is the poorer for her passing as is our family. She will be remembered fondly for her strength, her love of family and her generosity. This picture was taken during our week together last year in Wisconsin.

Good News:

DD has arrived safely at her new place of residence in North Central Pennsylvania. She can tell you I was more than a little hesitant about her driving a 26' U-Haul truck and towing a trailer with a car on it, not to mention dealing with a St. Bernard and all her cats on the trip. But she isn't one to let little things stop her. So watch out PA, she's there and she'll make the best of it! She always does. Her trip was uneventful as far as problems go and that's a good thing!

In knitting news, I've been working on an EZ Baby Surprise Jacket of Sirdar Snuggly in white with flecks of the primary colors, red, blue, green and yellow. The sweater needs cuffs added to it and then just stitched up, and matching leggings are done except for one leg. I'll probably make a matching hat, but haven't chosen a pattern yet. Also still on the needles is the ruffle part of the baby blanket in Encore worsted. What ever possessed me to make a ruffle with a jillion stitches I'll never admit to (grin).

One more step!

Today the web site for Scarves From The Heart debuted to reviews that warmed my heart! Soon I'll be trained on the software to update it myself, but for now I still have to rely on my Web builder/guru Chris C. who did an amazing job imho of building this site! Thank you Chris.

There is one small change I need to make and that is to give Tanya credit for the awesome job she did on the Logo she designed for us!

In knitting content, I'm almost done with the EZ Baby Surprise Jacket for our expected granddaughter! The socks that were too big around have been frogged and cast on again, but a might bit too tightly so I'll re-do the cast on in the next few days. The scarf that was supposed to look like a mermaid's tail looks more like the east end of a bull headed west so that too will be frogged!

Next up, probably a manly scarf done in stripes of Encore worsted in a solid and a coordinating colorspun.

Off to finish the EZ baby jacket! Catch you all later.
