(That color is really yellow ochre, but it appears more green in this scan.)

Fibers....ah, I love a chunky sweater. Nothing like a homemade scarf, right? Too bad I don't make more! Mom taught me to knit when I was about 9 years old. I made a lot of little bracelets, a 1 inch by 6 inch rectangle! I remember getting my own knitting needles with my Grandma Greene when we went to Scotland.
Then, when I was 15, I learned how to crochet. Now, my 6 year old daughter wants to join in! One of the students in my class today was wearing some cute purple knit legwarmers (mom said her aunt made them!), so now I want to figure out how to do "round" knitting! This book, The Friday Night Knitting Club, is next on my list!

Look at this lovely heart I made today! Check out Michelle's instructions to make your own!

Hannah's hair is now 6 inches shorter. After being so sick last week that brushing her hair hurt her head (admit it, you don't want to brush you hair when you have a fever), we had quite a tangly mess! It would've been a lot of hard work, she was sad, but now, thankfully, she loves her new short hair, it's very cute!

Enjoying the weather while we can, even if there's a LOT of water. I think I need a pair of rainboots. Maybe I'll check out TJ Maxx....if I find a super deal, I might splurge, I'd sure get good use out of them!
(Thanks, Jo, for the coats, the girls love 'em!)

I love the RAINBOOTS / WATER photo. It's a nice photo. Glad they like the jackets. We may invest on SNOWBOOTS in Germany, I've never owned a pair in my life. We are sick & its' NO FUN. Have a nice weekend - we miss you in GA. It would be nice to get together & make some cinnamon rolls or something.

I like to knit too...although I am totally a beginner...I just do the "knit" stitch, and all I can make are scarves and lopsided blankets...:)
