Pink Saturday


capelet8Bev from How Sweet The Sound is hosting her weekly Pink Saturday. I really wanted to post something special today, and it took longer than usual. You know "Ma, where is this", "Ma, where is that?" By the time I finished finding everyone's lost things I looked at the clock and it was almost noon.

capelet7My sister, Susan has been knitting up a storm for her Esty shop. She has been knitting neck warmers and these oh so cute capelets. I love everything that she knits.



capelet8I just love my sister's creations. She tells the story on her blog how she quit smoking by taking up knitting. In her usual creative style she has designed knitting kits to help someone quit smoking. They are also available on her her Esty shop. If It seems that I am bragging about my baby sister, Susan, I am!!!! I am so proud of her.

Karen, your pink post is sweet. I think you should brag about your sister. Good for her giving up smoking and trying to help others. She knits lovely things.

Happy pink Sat.

Beautiful colors - your sis must be a fun gal! The stop smoking knitting kits sound great - all women who smoke need to be gifted with one of those.....well men too, they enjoy knitting once they get over the 'feminine fear' thing!!

Great song too - Coming up Roses!
Hope your weekend is full of fun pink!!

Happy Pink Saturday, Karen. I had my post set to publish at three this morning, but TypePad didn't comply.

You're a good mom - one that solves all of the issues.

I'd be bragging about my sister, too. I wish I had one to brag about.

You SHOULD be proud of your sister! That's a great idea to help quit smoking. I did that 20 some years ago and I took up EATING! A very bad substitute, but now, with lots of exercise and wiser food choices, I'm not quite as plump as I once was AND I feel much, much better. What gorgeous items! What terrific photos. Happy Pink Saturday to you!

I like that idea of the stop smoking kits!! Good idea, because to a lot of people to stop smoking really means having to change their lifes and their attitudes. I reckognize that feeling that time is going by too fast, especially on Saturdays. I always tell our kids; 'its Saturday so the time speeder is up.' It just looks like the time is going twice as fast on Saturdays than during working days!

I'm not sure whether I have typed the characters correct. So perhaps you'll receive this twice, but better twice than not at all.
