Happy Thorsday, little friday and Thankful Thursday! Gretchen has a little post up too, of course.
Those cute little freckled feet weren’t there when I staged the photo – for Ravelry and stash-tracking purposes – but I should have known better… the wee one really does think all things PANK, pink or red are HERS. We had to have a discussion this morning that my new hair fixin’ appliance was NOT HERS. Hem. So much for the notion that dogs are color or even shade blind. I assure you, that’s not true.
Last month, I participated in a fun little dragon (as in… scaly winter skin) swap hosted by the most darling Kathy B. I was blessed to be spoiled by the hostess. Not included in the photo is the awesome moisturizer pair she sent. It had pretty PANK flowers and in addition to Gretchen’s belief that all things PANK are hers, she has this gross passion for body lotions… hem. It it currently living roughly 6′ above her wee head in the bathroom.
Anyway, there’s the dog sweater pattern (yes, for you Gg!!), the yarn – Madelinetosh in “Carnation” – and the PANK shower puff, which is also currently about 4 feet above ground level, behind the shower doors, because not only is it PANK, but the DIVA has this problem with anything humans use to scrub their bodies… hem.
Thank you, Kathy B! I am pondering what to knit with the pretty yarn… I think it wants to be a spring shawlette maybe? Gretchen has yarn all picked out for her sweater, but it appears spring is on its way here, so…
Thankful? Well, aside from being thankful for super swap pals, pretty yarn, all things PANK (or pink), I’m thankful for deepening friendships. I’m thankful for the passionate, talented women who are already helping shape what the upcoming League year will look like. I’m thankful for my patient, devoted friends – in the League and especially those NOT in the League – who never fail to delight in my small joys, who listen to COUNTLESS hopes, fears, plans and concerns about my upcoming step up to president of the JLC.
And since this seems to be shoe blogging week for yours truly, I’m thankful for these little cuties I found at Target last night. (Mine are a nude, beige, whatever… a darker neutral than what’s shown.) Thank YOU Marjie, for convincing me Target is an unsung shoe resource. They probably complete my outfit for the League May Dinner… but I reserve the right to change my mind and keep shopping. Regardless, I’m sure they’ll be worn frequently this summer!
What are you thankful for today?
