Never Forget!

 Hello everyone!  I hope you are all doing well!  I got up this morning and looked at my watch to see the date and see we are on the 22nd anniverary of September 11, 2001.  I for one, will never forget...and this is the image I usually have in my head when I think of it.  It was such an impactful time!!!

***ETA:  I have been crazy busy.....I started this blog post two days ago, the 11th, but am now finishing it today, the 13th...sorry for the delay!

I really have not knit on much.....besides my test knit that I cannot show.

However, I did get some new yarn!  It is all Berocco Vintage Chunky!

I have had lots of dental work lately so I spoiled myself with some foot work

Shyla got her Mae sweater and hat and they look so freaking good on her....this girl, she makes anything look good!

I also got a new bag from Bags By Awesome Grannie....I LOVE IT!

and how about them Longhorns!  They beat Alabama at Alabama's home field....that has only happened 6 times sine 2007....and Texas just made it SEVEN TIMES!  Yahoo!  Plus, my Brother In Law as at the game in Alabama and he said it was Epic!

Here is my nephew after the game (this past Saturday) and several years ago....once a longhorn, always a longhorn.

Oh....and last month, my sister sent me a text message that my niece, Grace, really wanted a certain cardigan she saw on Pinterest.....This is all I have to go by

So, I found a pertty close color online...and evern emailed her to show her how close the colors are, make a special order and even said in my email that I hope the colors are as close as they look.....and I sent her a pic of the cardigan with her picture of her yarn from her website:

Then, she took a month to get it to me (her custom orders are 10-15 days) and when I finally get it.....

1 - is what Grace wants

2 - is what I bought

3 - is what I got

This is directly under a light

I even took my ipad and put it on the yarn's page and put what I got next to it in a chair with light above....look at this

I am sooooo upset.  I sent the dyer a message yesterday and today and I have not heard back from her.  I am getting a little annoyed!  Now I have to buy more yarn....and I need to have this cardigan done by Christmas, and I cannot find a pattern, so I am going to have to make one up.

Well, that is just the icing on the cake of my super busy week

I hope yall have a fabulous week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
