I found a book this summer,
and fell in love with sketching.

Pleasure to Meet You!

Baby Doll met knitting today.
She was swinging and I was knitting.
Suddenly she was on my lap and I was still knitting.
"Would you like to try a stitch?"
I was shocked when my question was answered
with an enthusiastic YES.

"Let's pretend you are making cupcakes,
Reach into the oven,
Grab the cupcakes,
Bring them out,
Close the oven door."

Who knows if this is the beginning of
a beautiful friendship,
a mere acquaintance,
or just a nod at a passing stranger.

All I know is that it was a pleasure
to introduce my daughter
to a good friend of mine.

It's a Cinch!

Caddie, a cinch sack pattern 
has been claimed by Baby Doll
for her library book bag.
Let's hope it gets lots of use this summer!

The yarn is from my stash,
a Tuesday Morning purchase.
I used cording from JoAnns
rather than make my own i-cord
and secured it at the bottom
with D rings.

Happy Dishes

I suppose it would be easier
to just go to Walmart
for new dish cloths,
but where's the fun in that?
  food tastes better
on happy dishes
and dishes really
love hand knits.
Pattern from Golden Bird Knits.
