What can words say?
I am glad that your family and friends were prepared; you gave it a valiant fight.
As all of the firemen, friends and family lined up outside the church, we felt you there - a revered silence swept over everything, even the traffic stopped.
Thank you for your years of service to the community. Most importantly - thank you for being a role model in every aspect of your life. We will miss you.

Drops Cardi

Since there has been some commenting on this pattern... Here is the link to my Drops Cardi and the actual pattern
Reasons why I like this pattern
1. Cascade Eco Wool is a lovely yarn to knit with, eco-logical, eco-nomical. Soft.
2. Knit on size 9 needles = quick knit!
3. It covers my neck. ( I have a thing where I like my neck to be covered)
4. It is swingy.
5. 3/4 length sleeves make me happy. (I have a thing with 3/4 length sleeves.)
6. Moss stitch detail gives a classic yet simple interest.

I bought some blackish horn buttons, but I am not completely satisfied with them. I am on the hunt for some brownish, wooden ones.
The only other modification that I will be doing is securing the inside front flap of the cardigan near the neckline with a hidden button and crochet loop. If I only do the buttons, the front overlap of the cardigan hangs down from underneath.

Here is where I will add the invisible underneath button to keep the bottom hemline from hanging low. (you might be able to see the 3 button holes on the right side of the moss stitch, this mod will be on the private side of the garment)

A retirement gift for a friend. I think she equates herself with the energizer bunny, so now she gets to rest - if she wants to.

I am in love with these. The pattern, the fun, the theme, the yarn !!! heart heart heart.
Drying and then I just need to sew the buttons on. Ready for fall.
