I know it is one day late, but better late than never, although we did have a pretty awesome dinner at Bel Tramonto last night!

Michael turned 45 yesterday! WOW! It is hard to believe that we are pushing 50, or at least my Hunny Bunny is. Here are some photos to show how gracefully he is aging. And how I have turned him into a Hippie! I talked Michael into growing his hair long and it keeps growing and growing!

Look, Dear, when I first met you, you had almost no gray in your hair or beard, but I think you knew something was up, I can tell by the look on your face.

Thank goodness you got happy when you let your hair start to grow! You are so cute in this pic. It is one of my favorites.

See, Hair is longer......and you get sexier! and you look pretty happy too!

This was last year.... You still make my heart go pitter patter and I am still glad!

I love you!

Invasion of the Dish Rags

I have mentioned before how much I love the Mason-Dixon knitting book and blog and here is the proof! I am trying to reduce my stash.....ha ha ha. Or at least use some of it while I await a fresh influx of money to spend on more yarn! I have one whole large clear plastic container of cotton yarn! The color are soooo pretty! So I spent my 3 day weekend sorting my stash and knitting. I did get a couple of object finished, but these are the only pics I remembered to take this morning!

Dish Rag (cloth) No. 1 - note that there is not much contrast, yet it is still interesting and smushy! These are incredibly thick and smushy! I think they would be even better in the bathroom than in the Kitchen!
Dish Cloth, they are too good be be called rags! No. 2 - I started out with the pink and yellow and orange, but there just wasn't' enough contrast! So I switched to the blue yellow combo and I really like it. It is going to be tough to give these away a s gifts! I just want to hoard them all to my self!Then I got really brave! This cloth starts from the outside and you do bobbles! I was a bobble virgin, but no more! Once you get past the bobbles and and the dreaded yarn overs, and the first couple of rows, it is a breeze and it is really even prettier in person. In the book they have threaded ribbon through the yarn overs and they wrap up a bar of soap and tie it with the ribbon! What a great idea! but again....I have to actually be able to part with the wash cloths and the handmade soap!

I am getting ready to have my own Real Estate website., my will also point there. So...I may be a little slow on keeping up my blog, but I am doing much better! I am only going days with out updating, not months!

I also hope to soon have stuff up on my Etsy if I could just find a few more hours in the day....
