what's fair...

I just ate the last homemade Popsicle.It was made with a lemonade packet and a box of margarita flavored jello...sounds too extravagant for kids,but it was slightly sweet,slightly tangy,really...just right.They loved them,even if I had trouble removing them intact from the new molds.But,I saved one,just one...for me...is that wrong?...that's fair isn't it...all for them and one for me...that's about how it goes around here sometimes... I have finished May and had originally asked a very pregnant coworker to model it...so I could post about it...but that did not seem fair somehow...Hailey will be here this weekend,and she should model it...don't you think?...in all of her pregnant glory...so you will have to wait my friends ,until she can try it on for the first time herself...that's only fair... I can show you this,a new cowl,from this book that I made last night.Used less than 1 skein manos del uruguay ,it's a feather and fan pattern..I think it turned out well...I'm not sure if I'll keep it... It looks okay on me...the yarn is a little scratchy..the temperature is only 68 today so I really didn't suffer much putting on this old blazer to model the cowl...I don't know if it's fair for me to keep everything...so I probably will give this away...besides,I have some yummy new Habu to make myself something ... What really is not fair is the birds are getting at my berries...I hope they will share...it's only right,don't you think?...

I was going to tell you that you must keep it until I saw the comment before mine. Okay, give it away and make yourself one in a color you would wear! It's a great cowl.

The berries are wonderful -- I hope the birds leave you some!

Your cowl looks comfy and elegant and I definitely think you should knit another in an equally delicious color that you would wear

I love how your neckwarmer came out - the color is fabulous on you! BTW, I knit this in Alpaca - and it was unwearable for me. I actually took it to Alaska and gave it as a little gift as only someone living in Alaska could possible wear an Alpaca neckwarmer! What was I thinking????
