Pumpkin Face is Seven

Happy Birthday to Katherine. Our little pumpkin face is now seven years old. On Saturday, (yes I know I'm behind in my posting.) we took her bowling, which was fun until she discovered she had the lowest score. (But really not by much, we're not really great bowlers.) However, the promise of chocolate cake with cherries on top and ice cream cheered her right back up and the rest of the day went on with out any more tears. Sometimes it's hard being the youngest in the family, especially when your siblings are all nine or more years older than you. On the plus side you do get better birthday gifts. Ani lacking funds this year told her she would draw her a picture of whatever she chose. Katie chose a mermaid so Ani drew her a mermaid pictured here, what Ani didn't know when she drew the picture was that I had a blue faerie Barbie that I planned to give her. They both have the same color skin and similar pose. Odd, isn't it?
Katie's a bright and cheerful girl with a wicked sense of humor. She graciously agreed to pose wearing her Swatch Your Step sock (yes, I said sock, singular. Since I didn't finish her second sock by her birthday she said, I could give her the second one for her next birthday. Does she know her Mom or what?) and Chocobo scarf that I made for her, only if I agreed to take her picture posing as a model as seen here.
So now,with a wink toward Lisa and without further ado...

Her name is Lola Katie, she was a show girl, with yellow feathers in her hair and
a dress cut down to there. She would Merengue and do the Cha Cha....



To my greatest relief the sock fit her quite nicely. I was worried that after I finished putting it together (it is knit flat and then the front is joined together before knitting the toe) it wouldn't fit. It was fun to try, I haven't decide if I like modular knitting, It's kind of fun but I don't like all the ends to work in, four ends for each module. It's a nice effect though, don't you think?

my mermaid can kick that blue fairy's posterior anyday...even though she doesn't have feet...

Ahhhhh finally! A manilow song! I am so easy to please.

BTW, great scarf, great sock. The mermaid drawing is gorgeous! What talent you have in your family.

Now, here are the rest of the lyrics just in case........

And while she tried to be a star, Tony always tended bar
Across a crowded floor, they worked from 8 till 4
They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more?

At the Copa , Copacabana
The hottest spot north of Havana
At the Copa Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the Copa....they fell in love

(okay, there's more....but I'll spare you!)Happy Birthday Katie
