IMG_3425  This article was in the Seattle Times today.  The featured knitter is 100 years old and still going strong, knitting sweaters  for babies in need.

This knitter, not quite 100 yet, has reverted to knitting hats.    IMG_3422             IMG_3423

I’m out of practice.  Could do better!

Shades Of Grey April 23, 2017

shades of grey   In the course of my genealogy research I came across this image.  A sign indicating some of my ancestors emigrated from the Netherlands to New York.  Apart from that information I thought the image was very artistic.
