No more naps? or Barbies?


My 11yo niece Kaitlin from NC flew in today to spend some quality time with Aunt Jane on her spring break. Even though she is 5' 7" tall, I had to ask the question, honey - do you still take naps? She giggled loudly so the next question I asked, do you still play with Barbies? She rolled her eyes on that one. I played with Barbies until I was 13!


Never mind that I have new yarn boxes stacked up and pictures to be made and orders to ship (but don't worry, your orders are my top priority) ... it's all about the good memories she will take with her. The first thing she said when we got home was ... what are we going to craft while I'm here? So I got her scrapbooking some pictures I found from her last extended visit with me during the summer of 2005. As they say...

if it's not in the scrapbook, it didn't happen!


Since I arrived so early at the ATL airport, I sat and knit. Socks... remember? they are portable... This is after Junior chewed up 2 sets of my DPNS. No sympathy from hubby - he said I was asking for it leaving my WIP on the sofa. I actually am starting 2 pair! Zowee! I haven't had 2 projects going in a long time. One sport weight from Lorna's Laces in Envy colorway and the other pair in .... oh wait a minute ... we are auditioning a new indie dyer...


But I did want to show you the hat I finished from our new line up of kids hat patterns - Corkscrew Hat. It was fast and fun! Made with Peaches & Creme yarn. Who is it for? Well, it sure won't fit my grown-up niece...
