I have typed the pattern in Word on my computer. If anyone would like a copy of it to make for their favourite little girl, just PM me the e-mail address and I will send it to you. Thanks!

The.Knitter, you gave the baby back? I would have kept the dress and the baby.

Ungrateful people do not deserve such loveliness. None of my family or friends do "crafty" things, so I rarely give them knitted things unless I ask first.

Made my MIL a hat since she lost all her hair to chemo. Mailed it around the 15th of October, should have arrived by now. But no one in the house has let me know that it has arrived. I do not expect anything from her since she is on lots of pain medicine and is not expected to last to the new year, but something telling me that it has arrived would be nice.

If my daughter was little (she's 14) I would have loved to be given that dress. I used to love dressing her up. My dh would buy these beautiful Mexican dresses and I would always be sad when she grew out of them. I haven't tried knitting clothing yet except for slippers but it will be a New Years Resolution for 2008.

I have been on a knitting frenzy the last few days getting Christmas gifts done - nothing fancy but I am really hoping the receivers will appreciate them.

I have a question: Would you willingly knit a scarf for someone you KNOW (my dh), who wants one but would NEVER wear it? We live in Southwest Florida.

thanks The.Knitter... i'll PM you my e-mail addy...

to give you ladies an idea of something appreciated: my 7 year old went off to school in tears this morning... why? because he couldn't find the mittens that I'd made him (he had them last night, I'd washed them for him... they're a bit small but he insists on wearing them!) and his older brother (the 9 yo) wouldn't help him look for them. I told him that if i didn't find them today (i think theyr'e up in the disaster zone that is their bedroom) then i'd make him a new pair.

On another appreciative note (I found this out the other day)....I had knit a bunch of dishcloths about 6 months ago and had a stack of them just sitting in my kitchen. Good friends of ours were over and I gave some to my friend. When her 6 yo dd saw them, she wanted one too. I had one in varigated pastel colors, so she picked that one. I never gave it another thought, but my friend told me the other day that her dd sleeps with that dishcloth on her pillow every night! I did make this same girl a felted purse for her birthday last month, and she carries it everywhere.

This is for Becky....Does you husband not understand the cost of yarn?
It should not matter to him if it is hand made as long as it makes you happy.
Example...he is a golfer, you hate golf..Would you throw away his clubs?

Mommy dearest, I would defintely knit something for my DH even in a warm weather state. I live in Southern California and I am making a sweater for my DH in cotton right now. There is a really nice scarf pattern on knitty.com called Henry which is meant to be done in a fingering or sock-weight yarn so it shouldn't be too heavy and may be nice for going out in the evening.

Happy knitting,


V.

I can think of some people that I know really well that I KNOW wouldn't appreciate it. It's mostly people who have no appreciation for anything hand made and in some cases wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything that didn't have a designer label. I won't waste time knitting for them!
