it's finished!!! this was a trial of concentration vs distraction!! an all-over lace design was both challenging and an accomplishment!! w/a crochet picot edging as the final touch! it will be on display at the craft show in Dec...

i'm looking forward to making a 'toasted almond' textured cardigan for my stepdaughter Teresa and a 'Sweetheart' dress for each of my 2 g'daughters, one in pink for Greta, one in red for Charlotte!! i hope to have them finished so they can wear them during the Christmas holiday season and school programs!
i have enjoyed tremendously the friendship of a new knitting friend, Cindy, whom i met on Ravelry and found she lives right here in my city!! we try to get together once/week to knit... just today i received several Ravelry messages from my Maine knitting friend, Berit, whom i was worried about since i hadn't heard from her for several months... her daughter just presented her w/ Baby Bella last friday!!!
now as the football season begins at high school/college level my knitting will accompany me to a lot of football games as it did to baseball/youth baseball games this summer!!! whenever possible i knit on my deck and enjoy the ponds, ducks...
