I have to show you Doreen, the Needles’n Pins Shoppe owner’s book that I bought. She has several books, but I bought this one first. I need to clarify to you all that Doreen’s great patterns in the BOOKS are, of course, not available on Ravelry. She has patterns on Ravelry that do not appear in her books for publication/copyright reasons. So you can buy her awesome books and support the publisher, and Doreen herself. I plan to buy lots
There are summery cotton tops that I will be knitting and this cabled Biggy knit that I’d love to make and wear. Something about knowing the designer and knowing her patterns are perfect is exciting.
Okay, so a mom story. I’ve been a bit of a mess since last visit. Fireman and I went to see her last night. Complete change. Mom was smiling, silly and ate her entire dinner for me. Yup, all of her Chicken a la king, a peach part, a few mini cookies and even drank her milk. Now I Fed her of course, but she actually tried to hold the cup of milk with me as I helped her drink it. At one point, she looked at me, smiled and whispered, “I’m pregnant!”
If she thinks she is and she’s happy, that’s all that matters! I congratulated her. And I slept like a rock last night. Surprise.
