i've been getting really behind at bloggin' since i've been busy knitting for family, friends and my 1st craft show! i vow to blog once a week in this new year! i'm still catching up from Christmas so here are 'a few of my favorite things'!!!

teresa's 'EUPATHIA from elsebeth lavold's 'Enchanted Garden Collection'. i let her pick the yarn/color. it turned out to be a 'jacket' type of sweater w/belt. she has worn it and says it keeps her nice and warm!
i made susan a 'Meandering Vines' stole in black. she wears a lot of black. the designer, who lives in Germany, emailed me (w/compliments!) after i posted this pic on Ravelry!

this is ethan & greta posing for g'ma's camera with ethan's Texas Longhorn's hat on greta!

upon meeting Nora at Christmas i brought over a bolero for her!
this is a very soft db brested vest that i sold to a 'neighboring' vendor at the Regina St.Nick Market. isn't he a cutie??
this window-paned pullover w/button shoulder was traded to the Regina elem media specialist for a snowman she made! she was hopeful for g'kids sometime. at Christmas she learned she WOULD be a g'ma!
this is a tye-dye yarn top on the cover of 'Knit-n-Style' that appeals to my desire to make myself a few new things for summer! i like this pattern AND yarn!
