Linking up with Tami’s FO Friday blog today.
OFF THE NEEDLES
Sugar’n Cream 100% cotton
Ecru and Country Red
This bag is proof that stockinette in the round with two colors CAN be messed up. I was nearly to the bind off when I noticed that I’d missed a stripe, wrestled momentarily with wanting to frog the whole thing and decided to leave it be. So, the bag has a unique pattern, designed for easy recognition in case it’s ever in a pile with 20 other red and white Medano bags. :p My only complaint was that this bag grew so slowly, due to my decision to use number 4 needles instead of the number 7 or 8 recommended. I do like the density of stitches that the small needles gave me, I’ll just scale the whole bag down a little next time.
YOU SHOULD BE SO BLESSED
Happy birthday to my best son in law ever! I truly believe he was sent to us (not just to Bigmommy, thank you very much) straight from above. His gifts of love, faith, positivity, strength, generosity, ideas of fun, common sense, intelligence, loyalty and sense of humor have elevated us all. (He has a ton more assets but I ran out of fingers.) Great father, great husband, great friend, great preacher, great man of God – Clefton, you’ve covered all the bases! We love you!

IN THE OVEN
Yeah, it’s pretty hot but I’m baking today anyway. I think I’ll start with Sundried Tomato Basil Bread using my own fresh basil and maybe move on to something sweet, Pull Apart Cinnamon Bread, maybe.
