Thank you so much!  You are so sweet!  I am just starting back into knitting after taking a couple months off for the summertime.  I am doing my first fair isle pattern and had to start over several times but now I have it going along well and it is looking great!  It's a hat and there are also matching gloves that I will make.  I am going to love wearing them when I am finished.  

Take Care and enjoy your pre-holiday projects!

Thanks so much for the Birthday Wishes...hardly get to knit anymore...it seems the older I get the less time I have. It's my goal to try and get it in as our little Ava gets older.
