No, I'm not talking about my age!!!  Goodness, I'm still adjusting to turning 40, ack!  (It's okay, I don't look a day over 39 1/2).  I'm talking about the weather forecast for that thing knitters on the East coast are in a tizzy over. It's going to be in the 50's on Saturday.

Lucky for me, my second batch of buttons for Feb. Lady arrived in my mailbox yesterday.  Lucky for me again, they match much better than the first set did.

Yeah, that's more like it.  A few quick stitches on my new buttons and M'Lady and I will be all set for Saturday.  I'll be one of the bazillion knitters at Rhinebeck in a hot-off-the-needles February Lady Sweater!

And  yes, I took that picture in the back yard.  I used to worry what the neighbors would think about the girl hauling yarn out for pictures.  But we've seen our neighbor, more than once, in his yard wearing nothing more than tighty whities.  He always apologizes, but it doesn't seem to stop him.  And the sad thing is, that isn't even the neighbor who we call The Weird Neighbor.  So yeah, yarn and hand-knits on the grass are looking like the least of our neighborhood worries!

Very Nice!! 3 days!!!!!!!!!!! can you believe it!!!!!?!?!?! Or if you go by my hubby's way of counting it is only 2.

The 50's will be so much better then last year it was 80 (at least it felt like it and forget about inside the barns) and I have no clue what I am going to wear.

Love the sweater!!!!

The thing is not that he wears them but, does he look good in them??

Jessica said...

Yay! It looks great! Can't wait to see you wearing it. And don't even get me started on weird things neighbors do. I figure prancing around in front of the camera and tripod yesterday to get pics of knits was the least of the weird in my neighborhood!

Zonda said... nice! I clicked to see the buttons better...just perfect! Hope we get to see a modeled shot!

Have a great weekend!

Love your FLS!! I love the color; very soft and feminine. I'd make fun of your neighbor, but my very own husband wanders out in various states of undress. Luckily our next door neighbors on both sides aren't year rounders at the lake so most of the time it's OK. ;o)

Yours turned out beautiful! Makes me want to pick mine back up! I am making hats, mittens and slippers for my etsy site instead. :(
