Happy Birthday Steve!

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday dear Steven
Happy birthday to you!

If you haven't guessed by now, today is our son Steven's birthday. He turns a mere 28 today. I hope you have a great day Steve!

Today is Monday and for most people they dread it. For people like me..I actually look forward to it. Seeing as I am off the next 3 days. Of course...this week my Monday is Thursday.

I am totally in awe of some of the Cabana anniversary pics and feel I should not have even put anything in the folder but, it is all good and all fun. The doilies are just gorgeous! It's not easy crocheting with thread. I know...I've tried it. That's why I stick with yarn. :o)

I have actually started knitting a shawl. Not sure how long it will take to complete it but I am going to give it a valiant effort anyway. I guess I could post a pic of my progress so far. Will do so in a little while. I am using Homespun yarn. I can only knit with it so it tends to sit there until I can figure out what to do with it. lol

I hope you all had a great weekend and hope it continues as you start you week.

Until next time...

As promised, here's a pic of the knitted shawl I started with the Homespun, Tudor. I got the pattern from The Prayer Shawl Ministry book on pg 34, which I got with my 50% off from JoAnn's. Don't you just love this store? :o) It's called Knitted Wide Scarf but will be wide enough for a shawl. There are mistakes in there but hopefully I covered them up pretty good. Right now it's measuring 8" long and should be at least 60" when complete. Going to take a while? I think so!

I really like that painterly colors in the homespun yarns. Hope your not having problems with the waviness of the yarn. I guess you have gotten over that little hump. Looks good.

Oh, that is going to be gorgeous, Bunny. And knitted too! Good job.

A great big Happy Birthday to Steven! May you have many many more!

And yes, those pics are beautiful. I will have them available for everyone to see after the contest is over. Your entry is every bit as nice as anyone else's. You're a very skilled crocheter.
