Happy Hibiscus

"Wooly, will you take my picture?"
"Sure, what do I get?"
"You get to take me to lunch... make me lunch... take me shopping?"
Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift
3mm + 3.25mm needles
size 6 AB crystal beads
size 38.5" 
I knew I had to make this at first sight. Pink & flowers! I added beads to the center of the O's just for fun, It adds a little surprise & shine.

I think this would make a fun first fair isle project. The only shaping is for the neckline. You learn steeking & knitting front bands (no buttonholes) and it's PINK!

Beautiful design, Anne! I love it! :)

Meanwhile...

Wooly and I went to the store and the bill was exactly $10. The cashier said to Wooly, "WOW! I guess you get a hug!" I was thinking, "Hello. Standing right here." Wooly totally missed it because he was staring at the display - '$10.00'

Then the cashier say, "I guess you need to buy a lottery ticket!" Wooly says, "I already have. If I win, I'm coming back and giving you $500. See, we're willing to share, so there's no reason why we shouldn't win." We left giggling because nobody believes us, when we tell them that. I told him to we should give her $1000.

Day after the lottery drawing, Wooly heads back to the store and buys another ticket, picks up more grocery and says to the cashier, "Well, we didn't win. I bought another ticket. 'The Wife' says I get to give you $1000 dollars if we win this time." She says, "I bought one too, so if I win, I'll give you $1000" (notice how she said 'you?' What about me?)

Needless to say, Wooly really likes this girl now and tells me he thinks she's Cuban... Latino.

I tell my Mom this whole story...

A few days later we head to my parent's house to drop off the yearly Mom's Day fuchsia basket and gifts. We're chatting it up with them and I say to Wooly, "Why is there green glitter on your mustache?" Wooly says, "Huh?" and wipes his mouth.  Mom says, "Who have you been kissing that's wearing green glitter lipstick?!"  Wooly says, "hey, are you really worried about it?"  I say, "Aren't you glad I pretend like I'm worried about it?" Wooly says, "HEY..."  I say, "Was she Latino?!"

Mom and I died laughing. What I wanted to add is that 'hay is for horses' (right, Malcolm?!) LOL! He really had green glitter on his mustache. *sigh*

Did you know, it was also Auntie Michele's Day?!

Corey is 1 and Mr K is 3. Are they not the cutest ever? OMG.

I celebrated by buying geraniums for my planters. Different shades of pink & coral. Mom gave me 2 red ones. Looks a lot like my Hibiscus Cardigan!

Then again, every day is Michele's Day. ;)

Now I've got the win the lottery...

Happy Knitting!
Next time we'll see who's wearing The Crown... :)

Aren't you just the cutest thing ever? Look at you in your Hibiscus! It looks fantastic on you.

Oh, Michele, I love the Hibiscus on you! It looks adorable. And you adorable nephews look like they love their Aunty Michele! As far as the green glitter, maybe he was making you one of those cards with the lips on it to symbolize a big kiss and the kiss was going to be green glitter. Then because it didn't turn out quite the way he wanted he trashed the card and the glitter remained as a tell tale sign of his love for you. it could have happened that way
