Mr. Greenjeans interrupted...

I really haven't had much time for knitting on Mr. Greenjeans. My MIL called when they found out her sister had uterine cancer, she wanted me to make some hats for when she starts chemo.
Up on the soap box here .............
DO NOT WAIT to see your "doctor", yes the one we all hate to go to, no matter how nice they are.
I think my MIL said this is stage 4 cancer, had her sister not waited 28 years to see the doctor, it might have been caught sooner.
Off the soap box.
There is nothing to be done now but pray that the hysterectomy and the chemo help.
I went hunting the net and found this pattern: Floppy Brim Hat. I like the feminine look of this hat so I have made 2 so far. One white, one blue, both with cotton.
The blue is made with Cotton Ease by LionBrand and the white is cotton tots.
It gets entirely too hot down here on the Gulf Coast to wear a hat made of anything else.
I intend to make her a prayer shawl also to wrap herself with a hug when she needs one.
Then we just pray, allot, that she will pull through this o.k.

Avon Update: Free Shipping and Mr. Green Jeans

It is really something trying to get everyone to look at the camera, and not be goofy, when you have this many.

They are the bestest ever! And quite a handful!

The knitting is coming along slowly on the sweater. It is the easiest pattern to follow I just haven't sat down in a week.
I am trying to get the Avon business up and running and last weekend we had all the babies.
They are all getting so big, it's amazing to me how much they change everytime we see them.

You can use the code on this card to get free shipping on any $10 order.
Click on the card and it will take you directly to my site.
Thank you for your interest.

Trying to pay the bills

Click on the picture above to see what's on sale.
I have been trying to find a way to supplement my income and help out around here. This, I think is going to be the way to do it.
So when you have a minute click on the picture and have a look around, if you have any questions don't hesitate to email me.

The knitting is going, I bought some Vanna yarn at Wally World and in the one week I have had it, it has become three different sweaters. I finally found the perfect pattern, and it was a no brainer
Mr. Greenjeans from Knitty.
I am totally enjoying this pattern. It is perfect for this yarn, and when I finally get around to getting a picture of the WIP you well see why.
I think I am going to end up with two or three of these.
I saw someone on Ravelry lengthened the bottom and I really like it. Mine is going to be like that.
If your on Ravelry, go check it out, it is really cool looking.
