Boss: So this (Lady Eleanor) took you 15 balls right?
Boss: And I would like it this long but three times wider.
Me: OK (doing math in my head)
Boss: So that would be 45 balls.
Boss: I ordered 60, 15 of each color, use what you need and keep the rest.
Me: WOW, ok (then I was speechless, I know that is hard to believe, but I was)
That box is FULL of Noro Silk Garden for the project that I will be calling Koo Koo Eleanor! Berroco has a blanket/throw pattern that is called Koo Koo and I am blending that pattern with the Lady Eleanor Stole.
**Webs sold over 4000 balls for the discontinued Noro Silk Garden in 4 days. Did any of you take advantage of that sale!

Quantity: 2 Hats
The top of the hat is knit with Knit Picks Telemark which is a sport weight so I held the yarn double to get the proper thickness. The recipients of the hats? Co-workers. No one in my immediate family have babies or toddlers, so one co-workers baby, Allicyn got the first one, she is 8 months old.
And the second hat went to my boss' niece, Genevieve, she is 2 years old.
She wants to be like her Aunt Patty, typing on the key board and making important phone calls!
I think the girls are way cute with the pumpkin hats no? Ok, I promise, this is the last orange I am going to knit with for a very long long time!

Size: US Woman's 8-1/2
Amount: 1.25 skein Orange 0.5 skein Black
I CO 76 sts, knit with black for 1” of 2x2 ribbing, 1 round of knit in black so that the color change would be smooth then start with orange. The total length of the cuff and leg is 4”. I did a slip stitch heel flap for 2” and turned the heel in black. Picked up stitches with orange and did the gusset decreases knitting until I reached 7.5 inches from heel to beginning of toe. Knit one round in black and began toe decreases. Kitchner when 20 sts remain. She put them on and they fit her perfectly and she loved them. I guess I get to keep my job for a little while longer! (joking)
As I have mentioned before, I am not fan of orange, but I like my job and my boss, so I sucked it up. My dislike for orange started sometime during my teenage years. I was a cheerleader for many years and all the teams that I cheered for were Orange and Black. On any given week during my high school years, I could be found in my uniform at least 3 days a week. So I am a little burned out on orange, besides, I look horrible in orange, I am a winter.
Senior year, Varsity Cheer, Selma High 1990
All hail to Selma High, Our sons and daughters sing.... (I can't remember the rest of the song!)Go Bears! Cheer Forever!

Happy Anniversary to my dearest Sensei. Though I can't stand when you leave wet towels on the bed after your shower, leave the kitchen cabinet door open after getting a glass and leave the TV on all day long, I love you for many many reasons. You make me laugh on a daily basis, especially when you do those little dances! This past year has been emotionally trying on the both of us, but it has brought us closer than ever. Besides, who couldn't love a guy who brings her a 3 Splenda wet cappuccino every morning?!?!?
