Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone

Hi all. I am today’s guest blogger at Wendy Knits! I am Kristine, also known to some as the owner of Knit Happens, or as Cindy likes to call me, a yarn addict’s crack dealer. 🙂

I must admit, writing in lieu of Wendy, who I am SURE is SUFFERING HORRIBLY in San Diego…land of palm trees, low humidity, and men in uniform (Navy and Marines…ahhh!), is a daunting task. I mean, (a), she posts at dawn, and (b), she is wickedly funny and (c), a knitter par excellence. And then I had to follow Ian and Mom. I can only imagine your horror to read today and find you are stuck with….me.

Ok, let’s get the necessary out of the way first….Lucy photos! It IS what you all come here for, right?? 😉

But, since I am Axel’s mommy, and Wendy loves Axel, and vice versa, I must share my little buddy too!

Now time for mail call. Wendy, I got mail for you at the shop today. A postcard. See?

All the way from Australia, nonetheless! Wow, you sure are popular! I never get postcards from Australia… 🙁

Finally, usually Wendy shares some of the Late Night Wednesday fun at my shop. But she wasn’t there tonight….so I guess it is up to me.

WE MISS YOU WENDY! Ain’t no sunshine when you’re gone!

To all of Wendy’s knitting friends from her Mom. Seems I volunteered – or more accurately – was pressed into service to be the “substitute du jour”!

Photo Revelation

I notice Wendy always has her picture with the number of days since her last haircut. Today’s photo shows her as a babe in pre-haircut days . . . still a babe, nevertheless!

Daily Check

I read the blog every day to see what they (Wendy, Lucy, Spongebob etc.) are up to. It’s fun to see your comments. I loved the photos of your beautiful kitties enjoying their knit cat beds!

Does Mom Knit Too?

Not much any more. I’m busy gardening . . .

. . . love to cook & bake, sing in a choir. However, I’m working on a pair of Norwegian mittens – a kit Wendy gave me. I selected the smallest size for women – Honestly, if Bigfoot has hands . . . Oh, well.

Years ago I knit suits (4), coats (2), many sweaters, hats, mittens, gloves etc. I still enjoy wearing the coats.

The whole family loves cats! Wendy’s beautiful Lucy has become a regular model on the blog. Not to be outdone, KoKo and Sami eagerly (HA!) agreed to pinch hit for Lucy today.
