A Heartfelt Thank You

First off, let me say a great big thank you for your kind comments about my Katie. I'm just amazed what a big impact she had on my life and what a void there is now. These little pets sure do make a difference in our lives. She is missed very much.

Isn't it amazing how sometimes things just happen when you really need them? I came home from work the other and my aunt had sent me some homemade ornaments . . . just because! She had no idea about my kitty. These sure brought a smile to my face. I love each and every one and will be so honored to hang them on my Christmas tree.

They came to me at the perfect time.

Now I'll talk about some knitting goodness. I did get my fair isle hat done last week, and finally have a picture to show you. I really like it. It's all blocked and ready to wear.

I love it! What a fun technique to know. I can't wait to make something else with two colors. I did get some yarn for a future project. I can't believe how absolutely soft this yarn is:

I just can't get a good picture of the beautiful pink color with my camera, so that will have to do.

And last but not least, I have a friend who was selling some yarn for her friends. Beautiful alpaca. I just HAD to buy some. OMG, just absolutely heavenly soft. It feels like a cloud. I love just petting the skeins.

I don't know what I'll make with it yet. So until then, I'll just keep petting it.

Your Fair Isle hat looks fantastic!! Love the way it turned out! Now I'm inspired to try some 2 color knitting.
