I want to celebrate Parker’s first Halloween and the best daughter-in-law ever. We are so blessed.

On the knitting front, I was going to write about the yarn that arrived from China with a label saying plane unfold arid and 95% 5% 15%–of what, exactly, it seems I don’t know, but still: bistro mathematics?

And then.

All linguistic silliness got scooped up and put down gently over there for a moment. I got a thank you note when the mail finally arrived at five that needed its own thank you back.

For the picture of a certain hat being worn and loved and appreciated, and for the words that–I found myself wiping a tear. You know who you are. People like you make it all worthwhile, and many more to come who can’t find the words will be knitted for too: because yours make me never want to miss out. Thank you.

That might be the cutest lion EVER!

I’m so glad you got that precious reward…

And many more Halloweens to come! That is NOT the cowardly lion.

I have to say this is pretty cool — you’ve got the lion and we had the flying monkey — great picture!

I suspect your DIL thinks she has the best MIL ever. She is wrong, but just by one. My MIL is the best ever, but I bet you come in second. 🙂

Languages are funny things. As I found on my recent trip to Italy. I forgot how to say things in English. My sister got her French/Italian/English all confused. (she accidentally called someone a blockhead instead of talking about a pumpkin because of it) All in all it was quite amusing

What a sweet, sweet lion!
I love that he is playing with his tail :-}

If it’s unknown Chinese characters that confuse you I’d be quite happy to help. Nothing I can do about the math, though, I’m afraid. Can you get a picture to me of the ball band?

Cutest lion ever. Hands down. I want to give him a big cuddle.
