Howdy paht-nah

I finished lil Sydney's sweater.. 


I can't wait to give to my Aunt and Uncle..
 I'm so pleased with it. I have to say the pattern is wonky.. The US version is flat out - WRONG.. so I ended up following the UK version...quite frankly, having to follow 3 separate charts... well. just plain sucks... but the outcome was worth it.

It's so soft and squishy and cuddly... Cables in the UltraAlpaca just transform it to another level. If I could stretch this over a 100lb. Dakota head ...I would...

And I did make both Filet Mignon and Chicken Cordon Bleu for my boys who became official teenagers yesterday!... and they ate BOTH and ALL of it....I'm off to Texas (Dallas area) for the next 6 days.. Have a good week and see ya in one!

Happy Birthday, boys! Enjoy your cell phones!

Tracy, the sweater came out beautiful. I love that color for cable making. It really looks like cafe au lait. You'll need to get us a modeled shot.

Have fun in Dallas. You'll be missed...
