I've finally got up enough nerve (and had enough test knit) to post this pattern for sale!!!! I now have a Ravelry Store!!!!
This Little Piggy Knits Ravelry Store
I've only got one pattern for sale right now and this is it!!! I've also got my freebie prayer shawl as a Ravelry download now!! Life is sooooo much simpler when you finally figure it out!!!!
On the homefront I'm trying to get 2 other patterns ready for test knitting. One is for a triangle scrap shawl and one is just an easy scarf/stole. I'm also working on getting a pattern done for the PI sweater. Add that to 2 sweaters test knitting, a sample shawl, 3 afghans and 3 commissions shawls and I think I can stay busy??????? LOL!!!

Tommie James went to see God yesterday. She is at peace and I know where she is is a wonderful, happy place. My saddness is for her husband and the people that she touched that will forever hold her in their hearts and miss her. She was a bit of a nut!! She had a wonderful laugh and even liked my coffee (I make coffee flavored water)!! We shared some really wonderful times and some really sad ones. I know that she is with God and with the ones that have passed before her. I hope that Uncle Ralph and MeMaw haven't made the coffee!! I will miss you my friend.

I do not like this Uncle Sam,
I do not like his health care scam.
I do not like these dirty crooks,
or how they lie and cook the books.
I do not like when Congress steals,
I do not like their secret deals.
I do not like this speaker, Nan ,
I do not like this 'YES WE CAN.'
I do not like this spending spree,
I'm smart, I know that nothing's free.
I do not like your smug replies,
when I complain about your lies.
I do not like this kind of hope.
I do not like it, nope, nope, nope!
This was posted on one of my favorite blogs, Bev's Journeyings and I couldn't help helping myself!! Sorry, Bev, couldn't resist!!!!

|PI Sweater Short Way|
Just a few pictures of what I've been up to!! As you can tell I'm still stuck on the PI!! This center has got me addicted and I mean badly!! I seem to want to add it to everything that I knit nowdays!!! The top photo is a baby blanket that I've done for a friend of the DH's at church. Hope she likes it!!
I've also managed to snag some prizes from Seasons of Lace this spring!! I can't wait to see what they look like, up close and personal!!! I've got stitch markers that are on a necklace coming from Prolonged Sunlight and can't wait to see them!!!
And I've got yarn coming from Jimmy Beans Wool!!!!! How cool is all of that!!!!
I've been doing some samples for the LYS, Wool and Cotton Shop and have been giving classes there!!! The PI Sweater is for there and it's going to be in pattern form soon!! It's a pretty cool place to hang out!!! LOL!!!!

My DD and SIL got me a charting software for a late Mom's day and I'm having FUN!!! I'm working my way up to my shawl patterns, but when I can get them as polished as I want them, I'm going to start selling them on Ravelry!!! The software can be found here:
It is really awesome!! And the designer is on Ravelry and answers questions!!!! I'm in heaven!!! I was not born in the computer generation and most of this is gibberish to me....... I can even get this to work!!!!
I'm working on finishing a display shawl for the class I'm going to be teaching at my LYS this summer on Pi Shawls. It's called "Me-Maws Garden" after my Mom who could make a stick bloom!!!!!

I've been knitting as fast as I can and trying to keep up with everything!! I'm trying to raise funds to buy some software that I need to get my patterns into print and then my shop will not only have the prototypes of my shawls/stoles/scarfs it will also have to patterns!!!! I can't wait!!

I blame my Mother, isn't that what you're supposed to do??? I really do blame her though. I was as usual a pile of depressed lump during the holidays. Not that she made our holidays bad..... on no, that's when she really shined. She could cook like nobody else, if you like comfort food (and all 280 lbs of me loves comfort food!!) She really made it all about family and love. She's been gone now for years, but every year starting at Thanksgiving and ending after my birthday in Feb it's all downhill for me. I miss her, even if I do believe that her ghost is still moving with me and my daughter. Lucky for me she's in Germany right now with Heather!! LOL!! Seriously, we have loads of strange things that go on when we're together, DD and me, and we put the blame squarely on her!!
Lucky for me I get tons of knitting done when I'm having a pity party!!!!
