Calendar Update 7-22-08

WOW, I can't believe it was over a week ago since my last post. I am getting all of the patterns together and thinking of cute ways to show them off and this is going to be such an AWESOME calendar. We have so many nice patterns and items to share with you. Last year we had a "Bonus" segment where I had a few patterns that really weren't household items but one's I wanted to share with you. As it turned out it was something I was so glad I did because in that section I shared the pattern of headbands for men. My husband had a pony tail and he wanted me to come up with something for him and the guys he worked with to keep their hair out of their faces in the hot hot sun we have in Vegas. I didn't know it then but it was the last thing I made for him because he past away at the end of October last year.

I will share with you two items that will be in that section this year:

Little Toys, for Little Boys:

We all like to make things for our infants and grandchildren and this year Elaine Fitzpatrick joins our designer circle with two cloth and bib sets. One for boys and one for girls. This week I want to show you the one for our boys.

Elaine has done a real good job with putting little trucks on the cloth and bib.

This photo was quickly put together because I wanted you to see this set for this week.

Next week I will share another item that will be in our calendar.

We will also have a raffle of a Towel set done by Susan Mrenna. Susan has submitted patterns for our calendar from the very first year we developed it. Susan is very talented. She is one of those designers that continually give back to the knitting community in the form of free patterns. You can visit Susan at:

Here is one photo of the set she made for the raffle that you will hear more about at a later date:

Have a good week.
