*Song of the Week

Song are you Hearing on background:

"Ramona" by The Guster

Cd from "Keep It Together"

Ramona, Where have you been?
I couldn't go to sleep till you came in
Ramona, you're Ms. Oklahoma
And you miss Oklahoma
I'll get you what you want

'Cause there were days
When I refrained
You brightened our corner of Hickory Lane
When you would sing that song for me
Just like your favorite singer

Why'd you have to be so nice?
A wink and a girlie smile
Why'd you have to punch my eye?
That was something

But did you want me to stay?

When I was younger
And thought of myself
I never dreamed I'd become like this
A snap of your fingers
an end to the arguments
Anything For you love

Cause there were days
When I refrained
You brightened our corner of Hickory Lane
When you would sing that song for me
The only one you know
But I know now I'm not the star
We're going to pieces, we're falling apart
So come and sing that song for me
Just like your favorite singer

Guster is a college band if ever
there was one. Although its
three members—Ryan Miller,

Adam Gardner, and Brian
Rosenworcel—have long since
departed academia, the group
got its start in the hallowed

halls of Tufts University
in the early 1990s More Reading....

Ok..I having computer problem I mean big one! I have a virus in my computer. I really want to cry right now....

I will update my lace project coming week..See youguys soon!! Bye! Have a great Monday!!

Mazie is so cute! and I love what you did on the project. It looks great.

Hi Charles! You really have a cute niece. She's gorgeous in her dress! Your candy clay project is great too. I made a couple of those shawls and they are easy and fun to knit. All except the Trellis scarf. Looking forward to your choice.

Mazie is adorable! She looks like she's having a great time, and is quite happy. Is that a knitted (by uncle Charles) blanket in her stroller?

I'm not allergic to lace, but I haven't had chance with my first two projects, which I gave up out of frustration. I certainly envy you for having the patience to do lace.

I would suggest the Icarus shawl. It's very easy, simple design, and looks extremely elegant! The Yarnharlot worked on it too. If you want more of a challenge, go with some of the others. Some look small, so I would do more pattern repeats, but that is up to you.

Don't stay away so long!

I made the Icarus as my first lace project, and liked it. But I ran out of yarn. Re: Lace: Go for it! It's fun!
