STUPID title- yes- I know this...
But I'm excited!!!! I DID IT!!!!
Is it Earth shattering? Life Changing? No.
But, I learned stuff- and it's finished and it'll stay DONE...( unlike housework and diaper changes...) and well- I like it.
What am I going on about?
KIRI. After all that CHristmas knitting---- I made myself a present!

I'm really just posting for her to be fawned over--- so PLEASE comment away!
Knitters know--- this is one of those "MOMENTS" where you thought you COULDN'T but you did... a major accomplishment.
Besides- I learned to sometimes just FOLLOW the DIRECTIONS as written.... you don't always have to UNDERSTAND everything-- for your project to turn out!!!!!
Dear Lord- help me apply what I learned from this project into my spiritual life... I know that sometimes I don't have to UNDERSTAND all that you're doing--- to go along with your "Pattern".. but just to follow the next direction..and trust your wisdom in design.....I love you Lord- amen.
