What is it about Texas?

Another Steggie, on his way to Texas! I think it's funny that both people who have "ordered" Steggies are from Texas. The yellow one really turned out cute, didn't he?

The Secret Project

I've been working on this project since July, but I couldn't say anything about it. My mom ocassionally reads my blog and since this was a surprise present, I didn't want to chance her seeing it. I also couldn't work on it at knit group...so it was pretty slow going. It was a challenging project for me; she who does not like to read charts or have to concentrate very hard, but it was definitely worth it and turned out beautifully.

I downloaded the pattern from a blog and I modified it to make it wider and added the beads.

The yarn is Mongolian Cashmere :-) I thought Mom deserved a little luxury and knew she would never buy cashmere for herself.

I offered to let her model the scarf on my blog but she decided her top wasn't presentable enough, so you get me looking all serious and dramatic.

Perfect Husband

These are just TWO of the dozen beautiful roses my sweet husband brought home for me earlier this week. Haven't they opened just perfectly? They smell as sweet as they look, too.
