Here we go....

Okay. I have been talking about starting a blog and here it is. My first offical post. I have so enjoyed reading other posts that I am looking forward to this no matter how intimidating it is.... lol..

This is me and my granddaughter Lilee Mae. She is 2 and 3/4 years old. She will be 3 in December. She is the smartest, brightest, most wonderful little girl.

She inspires my knitting...even if she won't wear ponchos!! I made her this one and also one with a hood, but she refuses to wear them. Because she tries to find sleeve holes and then when she realizes that their are no sleeves, she raises her arms and off goes the is really funny. I guess they are too restricting to her. Luckily they are kinda big, so maybe she'll like them this coming winter.

Lucky for me though, she does like sweaters and socks...

My hubby (Michael) took this cute photo of some of the first socks I made Lilee.

This photo always makes me smile. Lilee is wearing an outfit I sent her and socks that I knitted her. (I made matching ones for her mom). The reason that this is such a great photo is that it is an everyday photo of Lilee wearing clothes and socks from me. Not just a posed, lets send Gram a photo.

That is why I enjoy knitting for Brianna and Lileee. Bri (my wonderfuld Daughter in Law) really takes care of the stuff I make them and I know she wears the socks too.....I have seen her wear them...

Well, I guess I made it throught my first post. I have plenty of more pics and stories to share, so this is going to be fun!

    You asked on the KnitList for comments on the new blog. Thought you would want to know that the top of your post is blocked, when I open the blog, by a blue rectangle that says "Blogger" and includes a button that allows me to get a blloger blog of my own, object to yours, or search for another one. I have no problem with the existence of the rectangle, just its placement, which makes several lines of your text unreadable.
