What Big Ears You Have

Life is good. I got up this morning, had a blab with my sister (being a twin, she shares my birthday, but is 5 minutes older) talked to my favorite nieces, and got some fibery swag from FC.

This is Fat Cat Polwarth, in Shadowed Glen, that Ginny tweaked with some added turquoise. This is destined to become a hooded sweater/coat. Kind of an ambitious project- but it will be tons of fun.

I guilted Laura into posing for a pic- we both have just gotten up- donned our rabbit ears, and are ready for the day. Kitten Chow didn't need to be asked twice- and he already had his ears on.

I'm knitting this scarf with the leaves- Saroyan, in some handspun. I am all about the handspun these days. It's so much different to work with.

I figure I now have a year to mentally prepare myself for the big 5-0. I certainly don't feel any different than when I was 25- and I think being around kids does sort of keep you in the loop a bit.

Anyway- thanks for being my friends-you guys are the best, and watch this space next year.

Oh man, why do I have your birthday down as the 20th? *grumble* Well, happy belated birthday! Looks like you made out pretty good with the fiber (not of the Metamucil kind).

Wow, you and Laura sure are 2 pieces of woman-candy in the morning. :)
