Just checking in

Busy days around the house. I can't believe its almost the 4th of July. I have a knitting project in the works but since it is a birthday present, I'm not showing it yet. I have a bunch of yarns to dye up too, hopefully I will have some time this week to get to that. Last week I had a special order from Germany! My first one and international too!!

The kids are busy and growing but I have little to say tonight. I promise there will be more next blog posting. Until then Knit On!

This is War!

Attention masked bandits! This is your one and only warning, cease and desist your raiding of my compost bin this instant. Any more late night snacks will be met with a 22 and a bat. You have been warned.

In the Garden

In the garden there grew... Forget Me Not's and Bleeding Hearts.
A cowl of lace and wool.

Despite the fact that it is June, it has felt like April here for too long. I still felt like knitting winter things last week so I whipped up this cowl. Of course I am a total follower since everyone and their mother has knit one of these. Oh well it was fun and quick.

My pattern using a stitch pattern from an old pamphlet of my grandma's.
Yarn is mine also, Knit Me Now Yarn - Warm Woolly in Choke Cherry.
Size 10 1/2 circular needles used.

I am thinking of making up some fingerless mitts too since I have about 1/2 a skein of yarn left over. We will see. I love how this turned out and it was a skein I just couldn't let go.

Up next a birthday gift for my dad and a market bag for shopping. Hope you are all having warmer weather than me! Knit On!

Finally Summer!

May is a big birthday month for us. So the little bit of blogging will get blamed on doing stuff for that. Here is Miss M's big day. KD's party.
Yesterday was finally a nice day and we had a sleep over for KD's Bday. Somehow that turned into this.
The kids had a super great time!

I tried my hand at crock pot dyeing too. That was pretty fun but I will have to go for some other colors, these are not my personal favorites.
I am trying to get some spring cleaning and a few stash busting projects done so hopefully I will have some knitting to post soon. Get out and enjoy the warm weather if you have some! Maybe take a drive.
