When Lt.Dunnit was in the upstairs bedroom he 'pushed open' the bedroom window to get a better look at the terrace.
Yet, Rip Herringbone said that he saw Hank Yarnover slide up the window and throw Purl to her death, so he concluded that Hank was innocent.
8 of you got the answer correct this time, and Patt Marcial won the drawing. Congratulations Patt!
Lt. Hugh Dunnit and his wife Knitty loved the house the real estate agent was showing him. It had everything they were looking for. Large rooms, and a modern kitchen on the ground floor, and best of all, the master bedroom on the second floor looked out over a beautiful terrace. As Lt. Dunnit pushed open the bedroom window to get a better look, the agent added that the house also came with a ghost!
"The ghost is Purl Yarnover", explained the agent. One year ago she was hurled from this very window. Her body was found on the terrace below. At first it was thought that it was a suicide or an accident, but then they realized that the window was closed when she was found. Her husband, Hank Yarnover, admitted that he had entered the bedroom and closed the window himself. It was a chilly day and he claimed that he didn't know his wife lay dead on the stones below. Of course he was sentenced to life___"
"On what evidence?" asked Lt. Dunnit. "His neighbor, Rip Herringbone, saw the whole thing. He had been out birdwatching and through his binoculars he had seen Hank Yarnover slide up the window and throw poor Purl to her death."
"I've decided not to buy the house," said Lt. Dunnit, but I'm going to see that Hank Yarnover is given a new trial."

The only part missing from my finished KAL is the button. I couldn't find my stash of buttons... where they are is a MYSTERY, lol. So I quickly ordered several sets from ETSY on the 13th, but they still have not been sent. So alas I must photograph without the button, just picture one there OK?
This first picture was taken with my sons camera, I get a much sharper picture but it messed up the color, here it is looking orangey
But the real color is PINK, my favorite and that is no MYSTERY.
Here is a close up, see how I tried to secure the flap down with the knitting needles, pathetic huh?
Well there you go. I am officially ready though for June. I have a PD James book on the way. Look out I will be knitting away in June, LOL
By the way in case I haven't introduced myself I am Aunt Kathy (AK for short) I am a grandmother, knitter, friend, mom and wife (in that order, lol) I live in Upstate NY (near Albany) but was born and raised in San Diego CA area.
That's all folks,

So I knit baby socks. I thought I would "kill two birds with one stone" as the old saying goes because they are going to be a present for a new grandma.
I even knit two pair of baby socks. They should fit a 3 - 6 month old. I knit them using left over fingering weight sock yarn. The pattern is from my 2007 knitting page a day calendar. AND the best part is how easy they were.
AND here they are.
Of course, I am putting a few other goodies in the package.
Now despite the time I need to have something to eat and get back to packing.

Thanks for playing - come back later for a new mystery contest!
She had been shot twice. The first bullet had gone through her right thigh, leaving a large bloodstain on her long black sheath skirt. The second, fatal bullet, had gone through her heart, leaving a bloodstain on her white hand knit sweater. Inside the Buick was Miss Malabrigo's cello.
Lt. Hugh Dunnit was called to the scene and took statements from three people.
Dennis Merino insisted that he and Rose had made up and she had told him she would play in the concert. She said that she would pick him up at 8:10 p.m. so they could drive together to the auditorium. However, she never showed up.
After reading the three statements, Lt. Hugh Dunnit immediately knew that Merino was lying. How?

And...How did she know? While Tink was telling Miss Purl how he was going to kill her, she continued to plant the tulip bulbs. Little did he realize that she was planting them in a pattern. In the spring when Ms. Dunnit visited the flower gardens she could very clearly see "Tink killed me" spelled out in tulips.
At least this time you were all on the side of the law! 12 members guessed correctly - and the lucky winner is .... Aunt Kathy! Must be beginners luck! Choose a prize from the prize locker, send me your address, and it will be on it's way to you Kathy.
Be looking for a new Murder Mystery to solve later on today!

I loved them so much that is what I decided to make for my knitted gift in the Spring Fling Coffee and Yarn Swap. We had to make or purchase a hand crafted item that shouted spring and I think these roses did just that.
I hope to get the photo and more posted on my blog this weekend.
