Monday, Monday


I love Mondays ...
a whole new week to do new things, to find life anew, to start a new adventure each week! And for me, it's when kids go back to school, and I can CLEAN my house, wash clothes, hang them on the line outside. Good things...

I am making another hat for my son Timmy who will soon be on his mission in South Dakota where it is COOOOOLLLLLLDDDDD!

I knitted him one with single strand Lion Brand Woolese, but it's a bit small. So, I started another one as you can see. If you want to knit along... please join me. I am still envisioning it, measuring and figuring what will work especially with the decreasing, so it is not 100% done yet! But it should work.

Hi Bev! I´m Olivia, a Brazilian knitter and I just love everything you make!
I started yesterday a blog about baby knit projects and I would like to translate some of your patterns to Portuguese, if that´s ok with you.
I garantee that after the translated pattern, I´ll link your blog, so anyone can meet your work as well.
Sorry for my poor English...
And thank you a lot !

Hi Olivia!
You write in English very well!

You may translate up to 5 of my patterns into Portuguese, as long as my COPYRIGHT and website are listed with each.

I would prefer if you put my actual website link on them, and not this blog. My website is

http://www.bevscountrycottage.com

Please also put on the patterns...

Hi Bev,
I had forgotten you had a blogspot blog. I've not been here in ages. Just today tried to do some updates on my blog and trying to get back in it. Sitting here in my rob after taking a shower, really should get dressed and get something done........feeling very lazy right now. lol

Come sit with me, teach me how to use DP...I love circular needles, and hubby gifted me a set of Denise needles for Christmas which I'm in love with.......soooooooo nice.

Hugs, stop in for a visit
Sandy
