Uuuh, yes, show us all of it!  ;D

Kathryn I have that pattern and made the shirt many years ago and remember loving it to shreds.  The coat was always on the to do list but never made it - perhaps it was the fabric requirements that held me off.  Unfortunately although I still have the pattern it is in a much smaller size than I now am!  I wonder how many other people keep patterns that they feel nostalgic about?

Yes, Jacs, there are others like you who hang onto patterns for nostalgic reasons.  Like you - I've had that pattern for umpteen years and kept telling myself "one of these days".  I have gone from 5'10" down to 5'5" due to scoliosis and I sure couldn't carry it off, either because of my height or the weight of so much fabric!  Guess it will remain there to be day-dreamed about  from time to time.

Hmm, Eva, I bought some rivets but didn't put them on.  Maybe before the photo shoot?
Chatter / Re: Stressed with Microsoft vs Hotmail

Debbie, I know what you mean about Microsoft "almost demanding" that you change over your email.  When I had a hotmail account, I would get the same message every single time I tried to open my hotmail account.  I never had a problem opening my hotmail, but I would get the messages and then warnings that things were going to change with my hotmail account and that it would be better for me to change over.  I don't know why some don't get that message, but I hated the new way my account looked and at one point, my account was hacked and I was receiving spam from MYSELF, and I closed the account. 

That ended that problem and I already had a couple of other accounts that I preferred anyway, so it was easy to let everyone know to switch over.

My daughter will be going to school next year. Her birthday is just after the deadline for school enrolment. So she will be the oldest next year instead of the youngest this year.

We are eager to see your jeans, Elizabeth! Also, Celia, show us your jeans. I find that jeans really look much better with the simple addition of the rivets. Makes them look "real".
Way to go, ejvc!

Thanks!  the sweater is knit from the bottom up and seamless.

It's the first, and maybe only time, I have done short row sleeves- I found it very awkward to knit to top part of the sleeve cap and annoying to have all the weight of the sweater pulling on the needles, at least until the sleeve was a bit longer
