Tasseled Hat

Mackenzie with her fingerless gloves on.
Didn't get picture of her in the hat or purse I knitted her to match
Tasseled Hat in progress

Mittens to match
I recently knitted a hat and fingerless gloves for my granddaughter Mackenzie. She loved them of course, (she likes anything her Nanna makes) and asked what else I could make her out of the rest of the yarn. She said we should use it all so we don't waste it. She is 7 and wise beyond her years. So I just had to make something else and decided on a tasseled hat and mittens to match.
Mackenzie is my biggest fan she loves it when I make her things and really does my heart good.

Lighthouse in Cromer

This is my 2 younger brothers and I in Cromer England. Our mom was from Norwich and met our dad in Cromer. He was in the USAF and based in England where they met in 1957. We went there this past June to spread their ashes out in the ocean. This was a request by them to be taken back to where they met. This is the Lighthouse they would walk to 50 years ago. This was of coarse an emotional trip, but wonderful to see where our mother grew up. It was amazing to be in the country see dearly loved, but left to come to Ohio and raised 4 children.
