Last night our Grand-daughter, Jasmine, came to spend the night. We went to our favorite restaurant, Little Mexico Cafe and it was very tasty as usual.
Jasmine enjoyed her virgin strawberry Daiquiri and our dinners were fantastic.
Her first request upon returning home from dinner was that I teach her how to knit.
We sat down on the couch, I cast 20 stitches on size 10.5 aluminum needles with some leftover Ironstone and in about 15 minutes she was reciting a little stitching song to herself and knitting her own stitches.
While I worked on my dress she worked on her swatch. This afternoon after a bit of gardening we got back to the knitting. I decided some bamboo needles and kitchen cotton might work out better. I cast 30 stitches on size 7 needles for her and told her whatever it looked like when she looked back just keep knitting. We can figure out what all the holes and floppy loops of yarn are when she comes the next time. She's a natural, I'm looking forward to our next session.
Thanks to all my friends for stopping in to say hello. And I want to know how you peeps get your picture to show up on your comments. Any advice would surely be appreciated cause I don't like being left out, hahaha.
Gotta go, The Saint has fixed Jambalaya for dinner, and he's ringin the bell, mmmmm....
Have a great week! See you in a couple of days, maybe with a finished dress...if I don't run out of yarn, eeek!
Oooo, I almost forgot, I got to meet Darius Rucker (of Hootie and the Blowfish fame) this week and hear him sing, like, 10 ft away in a small room with about 15 other people...it was awesome.
He's got a new album coming out of country songs...I'll be buying it. Last time I saw him in concert I was so far away from the stage he looked about an inch and a half tall, lol.
