Three dozen tulips and lots of love. What more could a girl ask for? Especially a 50-something lumpy chick who spends way too much time, thought, and energy knitting. I love the bf, even if he won't wear my sweater. I really do.

I'm in love with my Early Bird cardigan, too. I started the back this weekend and am watching the cables morph into being. I'll post more photos when you can better see the cable pattern, but here is Monica - someone else I love -  modeling my progress. (Moose, my beloved pug, is busy in bed this morning snoring in unison with Tom). Now I'm spending all my waking hours worrying about waist shaping. I wish I was rectangularly shaped; it would make it so much easier to make this sweater (or any other for that matter). But I'm a busty triangle and that's just the way it is.

I wish you lots of love on this Valentine's Day - whether you have a dude or not. Dudes come and go. Sometimes on February 14 you have one, sometimes you don't. Regardless of your romantic status, you are incredibly lovable - and you don't need a dude to tell you this either. You deserve all the love in this world. (And I do, too.)


  1. Happy Valentine's Day Julie!!

    The flowers are beautiful and make me long for Spring here in a very snowy Maine.

  2. Oh! I didn't know you had a kitty! The lovely Monica!!! She looks wonderful sitting with the Early Bird sweater.
    The tulips are beautiful! Isn't love great!!!
