A View of Many Things

I just love our Maggie! She's an old lady but still has a great spirit.

We had a great time at The View!

Barbara came out to talk to everyone before the show started.
She looks awesome!
I have a signed copy of her book Audition which is a great read.

The girls getting a touch up and chatting.
Whoopi was off but we saw her the last time we went.

Barbara getting ready for the next guest Lisa Kudrow.
I have no pictures of her because she ran off without even looking at the audience!

Sherri is very sweet and funny.
Both times I've gone to the show she spent the most time in the audience during the breaks.

Here is Producer Bill Geddie with the cast.

There were no give aways but it was great fun and First Born put in for more tickets!

I finished the Top Down Raglan Baby Sweater a great free pattern by Carole Barenys.

I have been making button holes on both side because we don't know what we are having.

Also finished is the Oden Baby Cardigan designed by Lena Lundbladh. Lena is an awesome designer and she was so nice to give this great pattern for free.

I made it with Finnean's Rainbow yarn by Autumn House Farm.
I love the pattern and have already started a second one.

I'm also working on a design by Bianca Boonstra who was so kind to gift me two of her beautiful patterns. More details to follow.

This free pattern Teddy Bear Baby Blanket by Barbara Breiter is another project I'm working on for my future Grandbaby.

Last is a picture of the last snow fall. I hope!!!!

Holy crap, I can't even figure out what part of the yard that is in the last pic! Maggie is super awesome; you know old ladies can be the most dangerous. All those who put that poor dog down can breathe easy b/c she's so forgiving:) The baby stuff looks awesome! I gotta get knitting too or the kid will be in college before I finish the BSJ!!!

The Oden Baby Cardigan is so beautiful! The yarn is truly perfect for the sweater! Love it!

Also, your pup looks really sweet!

WOW, it looks like you had a blast at the View. I am surprised that they allowed you to take pictures and thanks for sharing. Barbara Walters looks great.
The sweaters for the baby are so beautiful. I absolutely love the Bear Blanket. I have a collection of bears and love them. Your Grandbaby is going to be wearing some very special sweaters.
Love all of your projects and you can see the love and excellent workmanship in them.

Take care,

What a great post !!! You have shown us some wonderful patterns and they are mostly free to boot! The Oden Baby Cardi is one I've been looking at. I love it and may make it soon !

I love the sweaters. I look up to your knitting. You have amazing style with your patterns and choice of yarn. I hope to be able to knit mittens and sweaters as good as you one day. It is good to have goals.
