Finished Lana Grossa tank

C'est fini! I finished this lana gross tank finally, then tortured my son this morning to get a pic of it. I went into school this morning for a back to school meeting. It was nice to see everybody after being away all summer. Only 5 more days of freedom, can't wait to see all the kids.

My niece became a knitter overnight

My niece Amanda is one amazing young lady. I spent a weekend with her and her bros and sista recently, and I taught them to knit about the last hour I was there. Well wouldn't you know she went and knit herself this adorable pony and chenille blanket since then. Both the pieces are absolutely flawless. I certainly can't take the credit for this marvel because her mother is a sewing goddess. I'm sure the sewing goddess genes had a lot to do with this incredible talent to pick up crafts so quickly. I am so very proud of her and her sista Val. I can't wait to see what they make next.
