When I was a little girl, all my mother had to do was just look at me if I was doing something wrong and I would stop. People used to tease my mom that she must beat me in order for me to be so obedient. She didn't. All I needed was that disapproving look from Mom and I knew I needed to straighten up. Apparently I have inherited that quality. We've been having all kinds of company and on Saturday #1 Son was just SO wired with excitement with his friends. My sister was trying to calm him down, but he just couldnt contain himself. I leaned back and gave him a look. He saw me and instantly stopped. This only lasted for abt 5 minutes before he was jumping around the house again, but I got five minutes and it reminded me of my mom. Gotta love that *look*!
I also got all of her needles after she passed away and she is the reason I knit today. I haven't been posting much progress because a lot of what I'm doing will be a surprise and I don't want to ruin it. However I did finish up the latest Warm Woolies Odd Ball blanket. This one is called Snowflakes.
I used up some Red Heart Blue and TLC Grey. I love the way these guys are so quick to do; we each do abt 6 inches worth of knitting and pass it along to the next person in line. No muss, no fuss.
I'm trying to finish up one more scarf so that I can send that along with some hats to complete one box, and I have another scarf that is trying to get done as well to add to another box. Add fringe to an already completed scarf and I'll be good to go.
