Premio Meme Award

Well, a couple of weeks ago, I was awarded this Meme award. As things would go, I forgot. Hahaha!

I am supposed to tell you 7 facts about myself. I want to be very creative doing this, too.

1. I have great friends. The friend who awarded this to me lives in Minnesota. As a matter of fact, I used to live in Mankato, Minnesota, with my hubby. Our daughters were born there. Those were the college days.

2. I have been married for almost 36 years, to the same guy. Here he is
wearing a vest that I made for him, from my handspun yarn.

3. I grew up in New York, on Long Island. This is a view of
a water fall, near my Mom's home. So you know, not all of NY is New York city. :)

4. I miss the beach. The picture of the bridge is one of the bridges, actually there are 2 bridges, next to each other. One takes you to the beach and the other you drive home on. The funny looking boat, is a clammer. You see, some of people on the coast of LI make a living clamming and fishing.

5. When I was little, I loved dolls. Actually, I still love dolls. :) I use one for my avatar(picture) on etsy and Ravelry. My brother gave this doll to me and I still have it. Bet he didn't know that. See that tinsel? Well, we used to put that on strand by strand. Then when Christmas was over we took it off strand by strand, laid it flat and saved it. Boy, was I excited when they invented garland for Christmas trees! We had gorgeous trees each year. My dad loved getting real trees and loved all the fun lights for them.

6. I have two brothers. Here we are all three of us kids, with my Mom. We gave her a great birthday party several years ago.

AND number 7.
I LOVE TO KNIT and create knitting patterns and spin. But, that is not new to you. :)
Here are two new patterns. The Cowl is out on Ravelry and in my etsy shop
The hat is almost ready to publish, just need to read through it a couple of more times. Both items use bulky weight yarn and are quick knits. Great for gifts.

So, now I pass this on to others with blogs. How about Cary, Liz, Kimberly, and Cindy and if anyone else want to join it, let me know.


  1. Ooohh Joanne - I love the hat! Do let us know when the pattern is available. And the cowl, too - what a nice set. Bulky, quick - just my cup of tea!

  2. Love the pics from Long Island and your family. So when you got garland, you stopped with the tinsel? Not us, we did both! Love the new patterns too.

  3. Heehee - look at Dad modeling with the floating hand :D

    Love that shot of the bridges!
