Turned the heel!

Okay so I’ve turned the heel, finished the gusset and now I’m just decreasing the toe for the kitchner bind off! I cannot believe how EASY it all was…..oh, and I didn’t use a pattern. I didn’t want the stress of trying to be sure I got the pattern right so I just did K3, …

The PLUNGE

Okay, I’ve done it, I’ve started knitting a pair of socks. They are for one of the kids (not sure which one yet we’ll see what size they turn out and then I’ll pretend it was for them all along). This self striping yarn freaks me out. How the hell did anyone come up with …

Knitting socks…..sock knitting…

Can YOU see my blog?

This is the weirdest thing EVER. I’m trying to read my blog, but I can’t. I can’t decide if, because I can’t see my blog, I should n’t write….or I should write to see if my witty repartee reinstates my blog to it’s former glory. Or if I should just send someone, somewhere an email. …

Life’s funny like that…

So a week ago, our family expanded. Two little girls have joined us as foster daughters for the next half year. It’s crazy, it’s busy and it’s a blast. I’ve been too busy to blog (but not to knit) but I hope you forgive my lack of wit as I’m running on too little sleep …

Baby sweater DONE!

Finished the seed stitch baby sweater! YIPPEE! Now I realize that I don’t have the address of the people that I’m suppose to be giving the damn thing to. Ugh. Well it’s done (minus blocking phhhhh). Looks all squishy but in real life I quite like it. And the best pic of Elijah in a …

GAME SEVEN = KNITTING!

Today I knit, worked in the garden for an hour or so (it’s a freakin’ mess) and played with Elijah. Scott went golfing and so far it’s been a very nice day. BUT. I don’t have a Daddy to call today. MY last father’s day was last year….. Happy Father’s Day Daddy…..I miss you lots. …
