There Are Predators in Our Midst

These are the Predators. They actually look kind of cute; not at all scary. The idea is that fish will go for them. I do not have proof of that since Len tied these for a youth fly fishing event that is sponsored by the Michigan Fly Fishing Club and has not actually tried to catch fish using these little guys. The club was asking some members to donate about 20 of their favorite flies so they can give each of the youth attending the class a selection of flies to start them off right for fly fishing. Len chose the Predator as his contribution. Cute little buggers; aren't they?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STEVE!

Happy Birthday, Steve!! Today is Steve's birthday, but we celebrated with him on Sunday. Above photo shows Steve ready to dig into his strawberry pie. Since he is such a wonderful guy, he shared the pie with the rest of us.

Hope the birthday is a special one, Steve.

Ramling Rows Jacket

I have finished the toddler size Rambling Rows Jacket. This is a Cottage Creations pattern and was so much fun to knit. Here is a close-up photo of the buttons, which I happen to think are perfect for this little sweater.

Finally Some Small FO's


Last week was a busy one at the tax office, but I did manage a small FO. I finally have finished some dishcloths for Emily's kitchen. They were knitted using Peaches and Cream "Licorice". The round one is the "Crazy Daisy" pattern from Sew Funky. The square diagonal one is "Another Favorite" from Harvest Moon Designs.
The new dishcloths will be at home in Emily's kitchen, pictured below.
