I Love My Country ~ by Kelli

Have you seen or knitted Solaris?  By Melanie Berg. A great knit. I'm working with Tosh Merino Light. In USA stripes. Feeling very patriotic.  Heading to TNNA (The National Needle Association) next Tuesday in Washington D.C. 
 I am a proud American and grateful for the brave men and women to died to keep us free. Bless all who've served and who serve!!!

A Little Love ~ Sweet Maddyson ~ from Kelli

This is Maddyson, she is modeling her newest hand knit sweater Hazelberry with a trim of picot cast-on. She's 2 months old and has plenty of time to wear ( or fit in) her sweater. 
I knit this a while back in fingering weight yarn, with one pink button. Garter and stockinet. Yoke down seamless cutie!

Knitters Pin Cushion ~ from Kelli

Looks a wee bit spidery and many people won't understand the use of these pins. 
I recently found this 1950's treasure while thrift storing locally. No pins were in it. The bottom holds threads. I made it into my blocking pin cushion. I realized I'd never seen a pin cushion like it, storing just some of my blocking pins. 
Block away!

A Favorite! ~from Kelli

From my youngest daughter, years ago, for Mothers Day...and it stuck!

"( I love you tell (till) the yarn runs out! that's never)"

We continue to say that saying now and again. "Love ya till the yarn runs out~" and they know it's never. Hmm?  why do you think they'd think that?

Do my kids "get me" or what!!!

Happy Mothers Day ~
