The Queen

Nannie meeting Whityn
My nannie (who I call the's our little joke..because she is from Liverpool and she's the queen by all means!!!.. Our nannie is a knitting machine...she has been knitting since she was a child and she is really amazing at it. To date she has knitted Whityn 5 sweaters, 4 pairs of booties, 2 hats and 2 blankets (see my favorite sweater below).....She is also brilliant at needlepoint (I have 2 hanging in my house *one is mine and Jordy's name for a marriage gift and the other is of Windsor castle in Enlgand) , cards (she taught me to play Old Maid and Rummi), crossword puzzles, jeopardy (she plays the tv and wins), and dressing to the nines. My nannie is a traveler too. She has been everywhere from the land down under to on a cruise ship in Alaska. She took my brother and I to her homeland while we were both in college and it was the trip of a lifetime....She recently met her first great grandson and was smitten kitten for sure. It was worth the 3000 miles to see the smile on her face while holding him. I am so excited to share him with her and when he grows share "my nannie" with him....cause she's somethin I tell yah!!!!

My favorite (Organic cotton knitted with love by Nannie)
Doesn't he just look cozy?
