I went to Janet Nogle site today & saw on it a new post by her. I am going to borrow from that post to pass some really interesting
information, as well as, giving you her site address. On her site you will find some free knitting patterns that are really pretty. So here is the neat information.
It seems that Peaches-n-Cremes has a new line of cotton yarn out. It is called PREMIUM & can be seen at:
Check it out you may find out you like it. It is really pretty & the pattern that Janet gives to make out of this new cloth is gorgeous. I hope you enjoy this little tidbit on information. I hope it is a great lead to you.
Thank you Janet for this great bit of information. God's Blessing again. Jil
WOW! It has been awhile & I am so sorry. I got behind on mailing out packages but have only three left to get out. Will try to get one out tomorrow & the other two next week. I am frustrated by that.
I am alive & I am so thankful for that. I am recovering from a car accident that has left my back so sore that I just sit. Too much activity means I have to take my pain medication which means sleep. Sleep is not what I like to do. I did not hit anyone but I almost ended hitting on coming traffic on a divided highway. It was raining really hard & I hydroplaned on the road ended up in the median of the road. Lucky we had four wheel drive or I think I would still be stuck there today. Not good. The only fatality was a really big crawdad. We did not eat it though.
Now life is going on. We were blessed to see some updated pictures of our granddaughter that we are not allowed to see right now. We pray each night that we can someday be blessed by being able to see her. We love her deeply & are hurt that our ex-dtr in law will not let us see her. It is not fun in life to have to hurt so bad, but God is blessing us richly.
The New Dishcloth Calendar is out for pre-orders. I am going to pre-order mine soon. I want to get one this year! The 2009 Calendar can still be ordered for download only. Go to their site & check it out. There are 38 patterns in all in this calendar from many talented people. Janet Nogle does a good job putting it together, getting others to send in their patterns. The site address is: http://blog.dishclothcalendar.com/ I hope you will visit the site & order a calender. You will be in for a treat if you do. This site also gives you the blogs of the contributors & others that have helped Janet w/the calender I believe.
I do hope you continue to follow me. I will try to be more diligent in updating the blog, leading you to interesting sites, free knitting patterns, etc.
Have a blessed day as I have. God's Blessings, Jil

I collect Cows, so I thought I would post the picture of it on this post. I love knitting, most yarn comes from sheep or is man made. However, sheep don't seem to be as cute to me. However the below I found on a knitting blog & decided to borrow the concept, not the answers. The answers below are mine. If you want to see the original author's answers you can go to her site noted below. Enjoy & answer them yourself on your blog. Let people see a little more about you, maybe even laugh at yourself some by your own answers. If you can make someone else laugh or enjoy life a little more, then you have blessed them more than you ever will know. So, here we gooooooo....................
