what's happening these days....

Report cards. They suck the big one. I hate them-I hate them-I hate them. There the truth is out. Local teacher hates report cards. It takes time away from lovely, lovely knitting. Or from goofing around. Or from reading great books. Watching movies. Doing all that stuff I sooooo enjoy.

I happened to get my hands on some fabulous yarn from Ruth at Knitting on Impulse (she's on my list of blogs that I read). She is dyeing up a STORM! Anyhow this is sock weight in a perfect rainbow. And I am playing around with building a lovely circular entrelac cowl. There is also another mountain sunset-and it is greys and purples finished off with golds. That one is going to be a lacy cowl for someone at work. And then thee is another sunset one for me- greys and purples finished off with a burst of reds and pinks and fuschias. Very smart! I tried to take pics of the yarns, but they just weren't working out with my little camera. Just go one over to Ruth's web store and check out the fraternal twins, gradient dye jobs- OOOOOOOHHHHHH LLLLAAAAA LLLLAAAAA!


In the meantime, some gratuitous shots of family-
This is Mr. Bear with Daddy's new hat on (no, I didn't make it- but I wish I had!!!!!!)
And this is my two sisters- the younger one is in the middle and the older one is on the right. And yup- that big smiley one on the left is me.
Yeah. Not much family resemblance. And no- no one is adopted.

Good picture of you and your sisters. You all haven't changed much. I would recognize you on the street. I am on facebook and some people we know from Baie Comeau, I wouldn't have known them, like Marie Muller, Alan Viau, Nancy McGee ect..

Next time you talk to your mother say hello from me.

Take care,

Janet:)

I love the monster hat on Bear, it makes him look scary, my cat would run from him...

You think you have no family resemblance, I am the only blonde in direct link I have to go to a great Aunt that is fair skined (and not ruddy), blonde and light colored eyes. Everyone else is has dark or red hair and all of them have brown or hazel eyes...
