It Really Is The Thought That Counts!

1. Put on the pink Valentine-y cardi
2. Write heartfelt sentiment on plate
3. Line up shot in bathroom mirror
4. Suck in gut and take picture
5. Realize you have to write backwards on the plate to make this work....

Can we all say it together - DORK!

Oh well. Happy Valentines Day from me to you.... hope yours is wonderful!

And, here's a little yarny goodness that came in the mail the other day. I mean, I had to buy it, Kaity didn't have enough for the free shipping. So, MORE lace weight (like I can even handle the lace weight I already own), and a pattern for it - some day.

And, yes, that's my Marilyn's Not So Shrunken cardigan I'm wearing. I still love this sweater, and wear it all the time!

Well...perhaps between the two of us we could get the crafty stuff done right!

Your sweater is looking fine!

My friend Lynn is knitting it for the Olympics. It is her first sweater! Her's is green and should be ready for St. Pat's ;o)

Happy Day!

Love,
Donna

Very cute! (The cardi and the plate.) How did you like the pattern for the cardi? My Mom is thinking of making one and she's a relatively new knitter. Would you recommend it as a good first sweater/cardigan not knit with bulky yarn on size 15s?

Thanks for the Valentine's wishes! Hope you have a great day...

That yarn looks yummy.

i could write on that plate for you. (here's a little known fact: in junior high i actually practiced how to write backwards, and now i'm highly fluent in it. no joke, true story!) btw, the cardigan DOES look terrific on you. it's tempting me to put that project somewhere in my future to-do list...? =)

Yeah - I could have tried again and figured it out... but I just cracked myself up at my own dorkiness I just thought I'd share....

Besides.... ck out Julsey, she did it for me! Thanks!!

Happy Valentines Day Lynda! Beautiful yarn! And I LOVE that pattern, but will probably make Mim's Seraphim shawl next instead! Both are stunning!

I'm happy to see it's holding up! I saw it in person and it is FAB.

You're so funny!! Don't worry, it really is the thought that counts. ;-) Happy Valentine's Day to you, too! Hope you had a wonderful one! Your Marilyn's NSS cardigan looks fantastic on you and I've been coveting that Adamas Shawl pattern, too, ever since I saw it on Neglecting My Kids' blog. It really is a beauty! Can't wait to see yours knitted up! Take care, Lynda! :-)

Happy Valentine's Day Lynda. Your cardi is so stunning that it overshadows your dorkiness. :)
