(This is my first time posting with pictures... I hope I do it right...)

Since the air conditioning in church always froze my dear daughter in her pretty sleeveless dresses, I attempted to make her a little shrug to warm her shoulders and arms.  I found a simple pattern through a web search - http://flyinghooks.blogspot.com/2007/05/fo-girls-simple-openwork-shrug.html - and we bought two balls of Lion Brand Jiffy yarn on closeout from Michael's craft store.  The yarn has a whiteish, bluish tint, but there are flecks of green and pink in there, perfect to wear with almost all of her dresses.

And the results are here -




It's made my girl very happy, and I continue to be tickled to have successfully made something practical.

Of course tattoos hurt...they're applied with needles, not kitten whiskers and bunny tails.

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.
