I did it! (an FO report with photos!)

I've finished Trellis! Woo Hoo! Only 3 days late (and still without buttons, but its done! This is a gift for my Neice Chloe.

Pattern - Trellis
Yarn - Caron Simply Soft in Bright Green, 3 skeins ($3.72+ tax total)
Started - September, 2005
Finished - November 4, 2005

Next up is a sweater for another neice - Emily. Emily's daddy and her uncles went to Sallisaw High School - the mascot is Black Diamonds (coal!). This sweater will have a large diamond on the back, and will be big enough for her to wear for several years. After her daddy finishes college, he hopes to coach for the Black Diamonds.

On Fridays all this month, I'll be answering phones for Toys 4 Tots. My church will distribute toys to 2,000 children this year, all on one day! When I left church on Friday, 265 children had signed up since Tuesday. I hope to take pics of the mountains of toys that come in and some of the Marines too!

OK, I've blogged enough from work today - so I gotta run!
