So if youguys what to do Meme go head! If youguys didnt seen my Meme before, I did copy and past the old post so youguys read about me.

Hey, Charles! That cable scarf is fabulous. Those yarns from the dyeing class are very nice too. I was watching an episode of Knitty Gritty that I recorded the other morning and whoa, hey, there's Charles! It was fun to see you sitting on the Knitty Gritty Couch and knitting with Vicki. How much fun was that? Have a great week, I enjoy reading your blog.
