Marla's Baby Cocoon pattern..... Happy New Year to All!!!
cocoon pattern here
I have one more men's fingerless glove to make. I have started the ribbing. Its my pattern. I have really made good notes so I may try make a pattern to share. I have attempted this many times mostly at the beginning of a New Year. It takes me a year to forget how really bad I am at writing up patterns. I still have the fingerless gloves for a 5 year old, and now a hat is added. The snowman mitts that were lost will be my last project that was promised in December.
I prayed the old year out and the new year in with my mom last night. She went to bed and I stayed at it till all my dears were covered in prayer for 2011 ( I do this each day but on New Years I really focus on each person for this coming year). We always have black eyed peas cornbread and cabbage and potatoes and ham for the first. Not this year, its just WP. and I ,so its his fave fried chicken with all that goes with it. . My gr gr grandma Keith always said you must wear something new on New Years Day or the buzzards will roost on you that year. She always made herself a new apron for the first day of the year. My dears I have on new bloomers.
I have been so blessed in my life with knowing older relatives. When I was little I had 1 gr gr grandma (Keith) and 3 gr grandmas. One gr grandma lived till I was 16. 2 gr grandpas and my 2 grandmothers and grandfathers that lived until I was in my late 30s. Hard working people. All my grandmothers quilted tatted and crocheted and knitted. I have a house full of their things. No one ever divorced....never. I know it will happen someday, but I just pray its not one of my kids that breaks this record of sorts.((smiles)).
Tomorrow is Sunday and I will more than likely work on the fingerless gloves all the while remembering what gr gr grandma Keith would say to us, "Child every stitch you take on Sunday you will root out with your nose in the hereafter." If she caught you she would make you rip it back to Sat.
Happy New Year to all. May this be a wonderful year that brings each one of you such unbelievable joy. May you never have to rip back to Sat....((.smiles))
