Thanks to everyone who left a comment and participated in my blogiversary contest. It was so great to hear from all of you! I'm very flattered by all your kind words on my knit items and photography. I put all the names in a hat and out came Brooke. Congratulations Brooke - I will be sending you a box of goodies soon. Brooke was my upstream pal in SP8 and what a wonderful pal she was. I also want to say hello to my upstream pal in SP10 in case she is reading. My new pal sent me a wonderful little Vogue knitting book on felted items. Now I have even more things on my "to do" list! This photo is yet another ballband bag I am making. I can't thank Monica enough for this great pattern. My friend likes pink and brown so I'm desperately trying to get this done for her for Easter - do you think I'll make it?
