Good Afternoon!

I’m very excited about the new patterns I’ve received.  They’re the Cocoknits patterns; the Felted Desk Accessories, and Pleated Ballet Flats are just a few.  I have others, but I’m going to surprise you with them in a couple of days, maybe even tomorrow!  If you’ll scroll down, you’ll see the photos of both.  The Ballet Flats will make great gifts!  I can imagine them knitted in a solid color, but they would look great even knitted in a ribbon, or a variegated yarn, like Araucania Copihue.  To avoid slipping while wearing them, they suggest purchasing ballet flat bottoms from Fibertrends or using drops of puff paint (available at your local, friendly – NOT! – hobby shop).  On the pattern page I have a list of yarn suggestions, to aid you in your search for the perfect holiday gift (or personal “happy”).  I WANT SOME FOR MYSELF!  They will be knitted in the Copihue.

I’ll try to upload these three patterns tomorrow:

That’s your teaser for today! 

I almost forgot!
The trip to Idaho was GREAT.  Everyone was well and had a good time, as far as I can tell.  There was much “niece” soccer, and one adult coed indoor soccer game.  I’m still sore from that, and it was on Saturday night!  Guess who’s out of shape?  DB thinks I’ve still “got it.”  That was nice to hear!
The leaves are changing there with a vengeance.  They are changing here too, but they have more maples, aspens, and other “colorful” trees.  We have a lot of oaks here, and they just turn brown.
As usual, being there was surreal.  DB said it was like being on a movie set….everyone was so nice!  EVEN AT THE GROCERY STORE!  It’s not like that in Memphis.  The B & B we stayed in had incredible breakfasts for us all three mornings.  I asked the owner about huckleberries.  They are hard to find and very expensive.  Well, the next morning, we had huckleberries!  We shared them with the other tenants (who were moving from Seattle, because the people in Idaho are SO NICE!).  Everything is 15 min. away from wherever you may be.  Very small, and very close.  We only saw one police car the whole time we were there.
All in all, I enjoyed seeing everyone and getting to know them better.  I hate the distance.
