Another Birthday another scarf

Benjamin, my son, turned 20 years old.
WOW! I knit him a special scarf.
It is mostly seed stitch with alittle design using alternating purl and knit.
It matches a hat I made last year.
And most of his wardrobe is black and white.

Finished my Mud Room

The Great Room is looking completed.
Still have a bunch of details in entire house-base board and paint.

Finished the tile in Mud room and laundry.
Premier Tile was more than a helpful resource of information.
I got a small amount of tile on Craigs List and decided to do a bigger space.
Loren (@ Premier) matched tile so I could do the laundry room and the mud room. ( Bobby was always smiling helpful too! --everyone there is so friendly).
Abbey @ Sons and Development was helpful with color.
It turned out the colors are reminiscent of our trip to New Mexico...just as she had suggested(the colors were of Sante Fe flair).
Get ahold of these names--Court Magician and Log Jam. We brought handmade tiles home from a Sante Fe artist. Decided to hang on the wall--as opposed to permanent on the floor.

Finished knit project

I gave a scarf to my bro for his B day.
He is modeling it in the photos.
I used two new stitched--the seed stitch and "my man stitch".

Fun and easy!

Giving Thanks

I give Thanks for my family!
