I got a message on Ravelry tonight….I’m almost famous!

They wanted my permission to use one of my pictures for a pattern page…


See? (I’m JeanneL on Ravelry by the way).

 I was so excited…it is sort of like being famous, isn’t it?  No?  Please don’t burst my bubble….(ok, I went back to Ravelry to bask in the glow – and realized that only two people have made this pattern!  I’m totally not going to pay attention to that – it is special!)

Tommorow we are taking Cieara and her friends to NYC to celebrate her 16th birthday.  We are going to Bryant Park where we will check out the holiday shops (I hear there is qiviut there!) and ice skate, and then over to Times Square for shopping and dinner.    It is going to be cold, and snow is on the way, but I’m looking forward to it – New York is so pretty at this time of year.  And there is something about super-excited teenagers that just make me smile…

But I’m really looking forward to Sunday – it is supposed to be snowy/nasty so I’m staying in and finishing my Christmas knitting .  With a fire.  And a cat on my lap.  And a cup of tea.  And hand-made socks.  Doesn’t that sound nice?  OK, maybe a nap too.

I hope you have a nice weekend!

    LOL! You know… I’ve had several of mine become the pattern pics now… and it’s cause I was the first or only one done. 🙂

    So look at it this way, you were one of the first on ravelry to finish it! You have major talent. 🙂
