My name is Mimi

I did a lot of knitting in Holland when the kids where smal
It is harder for me to fellow the pattern in Englishe knitting books
I love to learn it hope you understand

Yes it is soooo true. I wouldn't know what to do without my dogs. They have helped me through soooo much this last year especially. They kept me sane through all the cancer treatments and heard a lot of secret
thoughts through the whole time. I love them very very much.
You should try and knit a pair of gloves from your dogs fluff. What is her/his name? We play with two of those guys at the local park, they are lovely animals. Did you know that they are crossing these with the Labs now for guide dogs and such. Yup, but I can't remember what they are calling them. Labanese? or something like that? lol.
Have a lovely day. What is your weather doing?
