Happy Birthday Mubs!!

This is my grandmother (and me Easter 2006) who taught me to knit. I love Mubs, that is what I call her. She has lived a wonderful life and seen so many things. She grew up on a farm in Montana, had to live in town away from her family to go to school, skipped two years of high school, graduated at the top of her class, worked till she married, raised two great daughters, did a ton of Volunteering for the American Red Cross, has always been a wonderful grandmother, mother and wife of 60 some years to Mac, a devoted Washinton State Univerity Cougars fan, Mariners Fan and Seahawk fan. She taught me to knit when I was 9. I think I still do it because she is so cool and it makes me feel closer to her. She is 100% Bohemian (so I was very excited to join that surf ring and again honor her.) She turned 87 on November 4th in Colfax, WA, where she still lives by herself, drives safely, gardens, goes to Pullman for all the WSU home football and basketball games, meets her two best girlfriends for coffee and to talk politics every Sunday, knits and sews occasionally and loves fast food restaurants (Arby's and Taco Time). Happy Birthday Mubs!! It was great to see you two weeks ago!! I love you!!

Hi Sunneshine! Your Mubs sounds like a great lady! It's so cute that she loves fast food and sports:) And I'm jealous of your stash photos, you have some great yarn! It's funny that your mom wants gold sparkly yarn in her knucks. My mom asked for a pair of the black Fetching fingerless gloves for Christmas this year. She can be pretty funky sometimes I guess!
