A Monumental Birthday and Knitting





My Princess Cupcake turned 13......THIRTEEN years old!!!!!


I can't STAND IT!!!!! I wish she could stay this age forever......it was all about the Baby Doll, playing dress up and "cooking" with Aunt Darlene.




Now she can cook better than I can!!!!




Happy 13th Birthday Princess Cupcake!!!!





I finished the test knit socks for Grace.


This was my first toe up sock, my only problem was a nice bind off that was stretchy enough to get over my BIG foot!!


This was a nice knit and I am hoping Grace is going to submit to Knitty (hint, hint).


And YES.......it is yet another garment I have knit!!

I'm not happy with the design element on the shoulder (O.K., the way I joined at the shoulder)....

I'm hoping the 3rd time will be the charm in knitting something that I will actually feel good enough about to wear somewhere other than in the house!! LOL!!

Regardless.......It is all a learning process and I am enjoying learning (Oh ...ALRIGHT......I don't ALWAYS enjoy the learning process....hence me re-naming this the Bugger Vest instead of the Boogie Vest.....but I'm happy once I DO learn)!! LOL!!!

Happy Birthday Princess Cupcake!

The vest looks nice, even if you don't like the shoulders.
