Yarn Along and A Birthday

Yarn Along....

It's almost done!!!!!!!!!! I have less than a 1/4 of the edging to do on my 
Leaves of Grass and then it's done. Holy Moly.

I am knitting this as part of a KAL, but I'm behind. Most are done.
I doubted myself that I would have my "Done" post. But alas, I'm almost there.

Knitted in 100% baby alpaca yarn from our farm,
this knit will be a much loved shawl, blanket, what ever it may be.


And then there is a certain little someone in my house that isn't so little anymore.
Our guy, Garrett, is 9 years old today.

A handsome blonde kid that can make you laugh but listen closely...
the jokes are quick and quiet. A smart kid, a musician in the making,
a bit of an artist (although he may deny it), an athlete,
a wonderful big brother and little brother.
Our middle child :)

We love you GMan. Happy Birthday kiddo. 

Joining in with Ginny and the other knitters out there.
