patty, how do you do it?

Earlier this week my BFF Patty came over in the middle of The Snowstorm.  She was on a mission that a foot and a half of snow could not compete with (plus, she has a great big SUV with good tires and traction).  Patty is a very focused and intense woman, especially when it comes to her knitting.  She needed a bit of help with a very precious project, and snowdrifts were a minor inconvenience - hardly worth mentioning!
This is a bonnet for Patty's youngest granddaughter.  It is knitted with Art Yarn- beaded and sequined and to die for.  Let's see if I can do this fiber justice - wait for the close up ...
Patty did all of the hard work - she just needed a break and someone to tease those little beads and sequins through the final loops.  That's where I come in... me and my trusty hemostats.  What a pleasure to be appointed to this lovely fiber!  I'd really like to purchase some of this.  But I'm on a fiber diet.
I have a friend who I turn to in dieting times.  I love her wise little expression-
Doesn't she just seem to be saying - now really, do you NEED to place another yarn order today?  Didn't you purchase some sale items from WEBS yesterday as well as some merino from Blue Moon Fiber Arts last week?
She should mind her own business.

I don't know--that "friend" of yours looks a little shifty-eyed. Are you sure you can trust someone who tells you NOT to buy more yarn? Just sayin'...

I agree with JelliDonut Jody. I think that friend of yours' skin is off color from dieting too much. I'll take her home next time I'm there and straighten her out. Now to the good stuff. I shall be forever grateful and thankful for your help with the Artyarn hat. There were thoughts of throwing it out. I simply couldn't bear it after Abigail's cabled sweater with the ugly buttons. (Her freakishly beautiful face will offset the ugly buttons) No one but you would have finished off the hat for me. Thank you Jody!

The Artyarn hat is beautiful. Well done Patty!
Jody, your 'friend' is so cute although I think I'd have to equip her with a pair of shades so I couldn't see that look in her eyes!
