Progress, Basketball Players and for Elaine...


So far, so good.  I'm progressing along nicely on this year's first project, the Big Easy II.  Only one more repeat until time to begin the lace border.


Saturday morning, we enjoyed receiving photos of the Little Men from their basketball games!


I don't know what I'd do if someone told me I had to give up my phone... no text photos... no facetime... Can't imagine it.  Just makes life so much better!


This is MY baby ( I guess two babies... Zack, my youngest child... though he is far from childhood, and Ruby, the scooter.  Something new for 60...learning to ride a scooter).

Elaine, the Christmas Ornament Hat pattern is free and can be found here by Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me.   It is well written and easy to follow.  You can whip out a hat a day (or more if you are fast)!  LOL!  The only thing I did differently was to add silver pipe cleaner to the hangers to make them stand firmly (just single crochet around the pipe cleaner).  Hope you enjoy yours.


And the pink shawl you asked about is:  The South Bay Shawlette.  It is also a free pattern from Lion Brand Yarn found here.  Easy and relaxing.

Hope everyone is having a joyful and productive week!

You gonna drive that scooter? How cool is that!
If I lived in a small community, that would definitely be my choice of transportation!

I remember when my kids played Upward basketball. Such a fun time! A scooter! That sounds like tons of fun! I feel the same way about my grownup baby but he rides a Harley - haha. Love my son and daughter so much. Lovely shawl!

Those are 2 of the cutest basketball players and I can just see the girls swooning in a few years! The scooter looks like fun!

Love the Scooter!
Did you have to get a motorcycle license to be able to drive it?
I think I need one...
You have some really cool "Rides".

Christine said...

OH!!
I forgot to tell you what I think of your basketball team!
When did they grow up so much?
I agree with you about the phone. I use to say phones weren't a necessity.
Wrong!

The hat ornaments are adorable. My Zack is my youngest. :) I used to ride motorbikes through cornfields as a kid. But when I tried to drive my cousin's scooter some years ago, I almost ran into a tree. :/ Beautiful shawls!
