Good morning chicks from another grey haired old lady. So far I am too busy to have to think about that. Grey is fine...gad zooks...I am 67 after all. Do not want to look like I am 38. Besides I am having way too much fun. OSG I bet you look fantastic with your white. I wish mine woiuld go white...but it is different shades of grey. Ok, Chicks, off to a Fiber Guild meeting. Have a great day.
Bonnie love those mitts. Have to try those after christmas.
Glad to know I'm not the only grey/white lady in this group. Mine is white mostly with dark at the neckline.
Good morning ladies... It rained so hard and loud (thunder) I didn't sleep well. But today is the Silver Sneakers party so I have to leave in a few to go help set up. A nap is in my near future.
My hair started turning white when I was about 18... So not coloring wasn't an option. I keep saying when I turn 60 I will let it be white (life will be so much easier) but I may chicken out. I just look awful without color on my hair.
I appreciate the kind comments on my photos/gifts. Still so much more to do. The cowl I started for Audrey is looking fine so far. I am making it up as I go but don't have time to re-do so I'm relieve it's working out okay so far.
OSG, I wish I could hire someone to make more of those mitts for me! I know all of our "boys" will want a pair, including Daddy...
Good Morning CWS. Another day another dollar. Busy day today. Payroll, billing and finish the November closing.
Will check in later!
Hugs to all. Have a great day!
Has anyone heard from Tania? I have made this Button Slouch Hat for Micheaux and she has the same head size as her little girl. But this one looks so big and I even used a smaller needle. Instead of 8 and 10 I used a 7 and a 8. Gosh it looks so big. Ah, well, start the cowl.
Oh, Barb I chatted with the lady teaching the spinning. She is going to start me on a drop spindle just so I can see how the yarn goes. She said the spinning wheel moves so fast it might have a tendency to pull the yarn from my fingers. Anyway after New Years. :-D
That's how I started, then you will learn the wheel. I'm hoping the new classes will be posted for Webs and spinning wheel will be one of them! If so, I"m in.
I can't wait. Today nothing got accomplished. So tomorrow I have to get busy and make that handbag and start the last cowl. Then just two more bags to make. I do this everyyear. Maybe next year I will not do this and take the year off....Want to bet? :lol: :lol:
I'm not a gambler, which is good, cause I think I would lose this bet! LOL
Yeah, I know what will happen...I will be sewing or knitting like crazy. At least I started in October. Next year Sept....?
Me too... sigh. We Who Were Not Going To Do Gifts this year have gone astray. I keep thinking of things I could make for so little money that would be nice and welcomed... and the list grows longer. Today my boss gave me a nice little Christmas gift which I did not expect, so now what to give her? I really do love and appreciate her. Maybe one of my scarves?
Bitsey, if it helps, I am sending hats to my daughters two nieces in England, and the four year old's head is about 19.5" around.
Thanks, Ihad her head measurments. And I followed the pattern according to that size...I think it is just the style of the hat that I am not sure of.
Maybe I will start in March!! :lol: :lol:
You are all so busy, here today we had the new loft ladder fitted but cant get up there til tomorrow need to wait for the paint to dry,I have several boxes and a couple of binbags( cushions)to put up there , one of the joys of a small house .Hope once thats done to take some photos of what I have been knitting of recent weeks.Didnt get the soup made today.Was sneaky and opened the swap parcel, so exciting so many goodies Thankyou thankyou thankyou its like a dream and definately the most exciting parcel this year
Okay, here goes!! Bonnie your knitting and pillow cases are just great. I have always wanted to do fingersess gloves. Maybe I will try it when I get caught up. Tommi, seems like there are a lot of us who are happy with our grey hair. I am very happy, and didn't even know the biblical mention. OSG, I am glad you are on the mend. I don't ever have migraines, but some headaches are just awful. Don't laugh, but I heard that rubbing the skin of a lemon on forehead it gets better. Like I said I can't say I KNOW it works, so try it and make lemonade with the rest. (giggle)
I guess I forget the rest but hello to everyone, hope everyone is all done wrapping.
My swap finally went into the mail box today. If I ever said before I just wanted to mail, but today it is gone. Should arrive Wednesday. Can't wait for the grand opening day.
