I wonder if I'd look this goodwith a face-lift?
It has been snowing all night and a little bit of freezing rain has fallen. The roads are a MESS! I won't be cat-sitting until later in the day so that is good for this scaredy-cat driver on ice. I HATE WINTER driving! Right now it is blowing like mad.
The cats are all finding their spots already for the day. Lily has no shame. She loves her man.

Because of the nasty weather I have been cleaning and purging again. In the process of looking for some documents I went throw my wicker chest that holds many treasures from years past. In the chest was a bag of knitted items that my mother made in her later years.
She was a beautiful knitter. But then, everything my mom did was done with perfection. In amongst her gorgeous knitted mitts, sweaters and vests was a sweater I lovingly knit for my first daughter, Jessica.
It had a little hat, too.
After she grew out of it we put it on her biggest doll.
Because of a busy life, I have not picked up knitting needles for years. Looking at this little sweater makes me want to start again; to create again. I know I wasn't very good at knitting but practice makes perfect, right.
I am following some blogs that are based on 'knitting' and I love what these women can do. Such beautiful and unique sweaters, shawls etc. done with a steady hand. I just want to reach in and feel the texture of the colourful wool. For instance, Tanna at http://thebrickstreetbungalow.blogspot.com/. Just look at how talented this woman is.
Now that I have a beautiful grand-daughter who looks adorable in wool I think I need to pick up the needles again. Something to think about.
