New Year's Clogs for Paul!
Yay! The one "Late" Christmas project that I promised myself I would do is done! I knit up the large men's size of the Fiber Trends clog pattern in ultra alpaca red and green for my best friend, Paul. I gave them to him pre-felted and then put them in the wash while we had a nightcap. They fit and he Loves them! Here he is with his dog, Whinnie, who comes with him to visit and gets to play with our pack. Whinnie is also the bathing beauty on the pool floatie in the previous post during Sept. "Summer Fun update".
My theme for this new year is gratitude. I am grateful that I have a happy home, a great life partner, wonderful children and fabulous friends. And it seems that the hardships of 2007 are behind us. Ann's vaction rental business is booming and I now will have my own sales site to call my own and be able to sell, sell, sell! And to top it off, my favorite yarn store, Kiwi Knitting, has asked me to teach some classes this spring! Man, I am so excited! As Paul has taught me, "Thank You God and Associates"!
So now my knitting will have an extra focus of class preparation, which I hope to take advantage of to knit things I have been wanting to, like the Pure and Simple top down sweater and a vest out of Silk Garden! Stay tuned and check the Ravelry site too! KC
