My original designed sweaters. -2011

I am still doing a lot of knitting -- I just finished a turquoise and brown short sweater for a friend of mine which achieved the 'western' effect (she is a rancher near Cochrane (near Calgary) and teaches riding - It looked great on her.

I also finished the cream sweater on the right for a friend who lives in my condo building. she is very tiny and it looks good on her.

Here is a pullover I just designed and knitted for myself -- our winters are very cold and I think I will get lots of use out of it.

I can't believe how 'grey' I have gotten over the past two years -- they have been difficult to say the least and it sure does show! Things are going well now though.

I seem to be into the 'sweater' mode and have yarn for a light weight
pullover which I will start once I finish a rose colored sweater like the western one above. It is for a dear friend who
has had a major trauma in her life recently.

We are finally having a nice summer -- it is hard to believe it is August lst already. We had a very bitterly cold winter, a rainy not pleasant spring and this past week has been much better.

I am trying to swim at least 3 times a week and feel more fit than I have for awhile. I lost some weight and am trying to keep it off --

How nice that you have been busy creating. I too have done a bit of knitting but not that much. Keep cool and I hope you and your husband are enjoying good health.
