Knitting Pattern-A-Day Calendar

About a year ago, Susan Ripley contacted me and asking me whether I wanted to submit any of my patterns to Knitting and Crochet Pattern-A-Day Calendar. Since I can submit my existing pattern and still selling it in my website, I thought “why not”. So, I submitted my Lauri Dress knitting pattern for 2010 calendar. I forgot all about this until yesterday night I received notification email saying that I won the second prize winner! True enough, when I went to their website, I saw this:

As a second winner, I am about to get USD 250,- check from them. I can’t wait to get the check and the free calendar. If you order the Knitting Pattern-A-Day Calendar, don’t forget to check my Lauri Knitting Pattern on 15 March page.

Lauri Cut Her Finger

On last Wednesday (6 May), Lauri got a nasty cut in her finger. She used her grandma’s big and sharp scissors and accidently cut her left forefinger. The blood was everywhere and we quickly brought her to the ER.

Since she is below 10 years, it was impossible to keep her still in order to give her local anesthetic jab on the finger. She didn’t even let the doctor saw her wound. So the only choice was to give her full anestethic so the doctor was stitching the wound. It cost us about USD 600,- for total 4 stiches on her finger.

Yellow Riding Hood?

When I told her to pose with the hood on, she was quite reluctant because she said that she would look like a boy. Does she look like a boy?

By the way, can you find "Lauri" word on the board?
