If we set our minds to win, we win.


There once was a person who lived next to a road where he sold some delicious meatballs with bread. He was very busy and therefore did not hear radio, did not read the newspapers or watching television. He rented a piece of land, put a big fence and announced his merchandise shouting their lungs:
'Buy delicious hot meatballs.'

And people bought them. Increased purchase of bread and meat. He bought a bigger field to look after his business, and worked as arranged for his son left the University where he studied Commercial Sciences to help him.

However, something very important happened, his son said: 'Old, do not you listen to the radio or read newspapers ...?. We are experiencing a serious crisis!. The situation is really bad, worse could not be! '.
The father thought, 'My son is studying at the University, read newspapers, watch television and listen to the radio. You should know better than me what's going on ... '

He then bought less bread and less meat. He took the billboard, left the land rent in order to eliminate the expense and announced no rich meatballs with bread. And sales were falling every day.
'You were right, my son,' said the boy. 'Truly we are suffering a great crisis. "

Let us not talk of crisis.
Let's just good business, good jobs and good jobs.
If you are programmed to fail, fail.
If we set our minds to win, win.
It's simply a personal choice.

Thanks to Louise for featuring ToppyToppy in her Blog

and for letting me to post in ToppyToppyKnits

I really appreciate that


Free Pattern Courtesy of Louise Knits

Isn't cute?

Hand Knitted Baby Cardigan Pattern

This is in one size only - takes for ever to figure out other sizes!
For chest 10" - finished measurements about 14"
Sleeve 3"
You will need:
2 balls of a soft yarn that woks with 3.25mm (US 3 Needles)
A button

tension is 25sts and 50 rows for a 4x4 inch square

If you are a beginner you may not understand this pattern - for more experienced knitters, I am sure you will see the 'pattern' of the decrease rows forming the raglan)
I think this was originally a Debbie Bliss pattern i had written down somewhere so please forgive me if there are any mistakes - as i keep saying, I am hopeless at writing down patterns and i just had some notes on a scrap of paper!

cast on 45 sts
knit until back measures 3" ending with a wrong side row
cast off 4 sts at beginning of next 2 rows
leave remaining 37 sts on a spare needle

sleeves (I  knit both at the same time)
cast on 29 sts
K 7 rows
increase:* k3, m1, k to last 4 sts m1, k3
knit 7 rows*
repeat * to * until there are 35 sts
knit until sleeve measures 3" ending with a wrong side row
cast off 4 sts at the beginning of next 2 rows
leave remaining 27 sts on a spare needle

Left Front
cast on 25 sts
Knit for 3" ending with a wrong side row
cast off 4 sts at begining on next row
k1 row
leave remaining 21 sts on a spare needle

Right front
cast on 25
knit for 3" ending with a right side row
cast off 4 stst at beginning of next row
you have 21 sts.

Keep these sts on your needle
knit across the stitches of the right front.
knit across stitches on spare needle of the right sleeve
knit across sts from the back
knit across sts from the left sleeve
knit across sts form left front

You should now have 133 sts (i hope!)
 knit 2 rows. (or 1 row depending which side you want the buttonhole on)
button hole row
k2, k2tog, yard over needle, k to end

K18, k2tog, k2, skpo( slip1, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over)
k3 rows

knit 3 rows

K16, k2tog,, k2, skpo,
k17, k2tog, k2, skpo,
k27, k2tog, k2, skpo,
k17. k2tog,k2, skpo, k16,
knit 3 rows

you see a pattern forming?
continue in this way keeping the k3 rows after the decreases until you have 93 sts.

now use the same decrease method but on every following right side row until there are 61 sts left
knit 3 rows.
cast off

sew up and add button!

Knitting my first ever doggie sweater.

I am working as fast and as hard as I can on all of my friend's orders.

 Please be patient. There ended up being a lot more work than I was expecting.

I was on the middle of a beautiful black hat and ran out of yarn ...

Bella's sweater is almost done, trying to finish it tomorrow.

Bella will look good  in the red sweater.
