HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUSAN!!!
Yes, my big sister celebrates her birthday today! Susan has always been my guardian angel and protector, my confidante, my best friend, and my favorite knitter.
Please join me in wishing her the happiest of birthdays. I wish we were off on some fabulous knitting jaunt together today, but we aren’t, Blanche.
As for knitting, I have had very little time to knit lately, and the time I have had has been devoted to my stealth knitting. I have managed to pick up my Counterpane Blouse here and there. This is a simple, quick knit. I should have finished it by now, but I haven’t. I like what I’ve got so far, and once it’s washed and blocked so that the yarn softens and the stitches even out, I think I’ll be happy with it. Here are some not-so-great progress shots.
PS From Susan — Thanks for the lovely birthday wishes (and on the right day!!). I received this card from Dad:
The Counterpane is looking great. I’ll update people on my Alexandria fiasco soon.
