Time has been flying by and a lot has been happening. I owe you many posts that are waiting in the wings! First up, back in June several friends got together and had a 'grandma shower' for my! What a fun day. Susan and Carol got their heads together, came up with a guest list and I spent the afternoon in the company of friends, food and fun! The shower was complete with cake (red velvet~ a personal favorite of mine), wine (another personal favorite of mine....), and beautiful gifts! Here is a bit of the wonderful things I opened.
some fabulous books:
and last but not least, some beautiful knitted things.
First up, knitted by my friend irishgirlieknits, this is a beautiful pair of her cotty socks and a hat to match. She knitted them out of bmfa str in the colorway peek-a-boo peonie. I love this color and can't wait to try these things on the new little one. Pictures to come, I promise. Thanks Carrie, you are a gem!
Next up, a darling shrug and hat, knit by my other good friend knittinggolfer.
For the hat, she dyed the yarn herself! Can't wait to put it on that precious little head. Thanks, Marcy! Your are the best!
I have said this many times, but it bears repeating. I am very blessed. I have wonderful friends~ Thank you, everyone!~
