Bernat Giveaway

Bernat is having a giveaway. I just wanted to let you know about it. No, I don't get extra entries for letting you know or anything. I just want to see someone I "know" win one of these big company giveaways.  What are you waiting for--Go HERE!

I know the picture doesn't go with this post but I saw this recently and just decided to share it for the heck of it. This is Opi before he started turning gray and looking like a raccoon. He's wearing his bathrobe and kicking back in the little rocker.

Vest Status

Today's update on the vest--

One thing I've found strange about this pattern is that the shaping around the arm opening is uneven. It starts on one row for the one side and then starts on the next row for the other side. I read the pattern several times and I didn't misread it. Should be interesting to see the finished object. So far this is an easy pattern and I think if there are any problems making it, then the collar maybe a bit more challenging. I'll just have to wait and see.

For attractive lips,
Speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes,
Seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure,
Share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair,
Let a child run his or her fingers
through it once a day.
For poise,
Walk with the knowledge you'll
never walk alone.
--Audrey Hepburn
