Must Keep Knitting!!!!!

I have not had much time to blog lately. I have been working frantically, yes frantically, on a baby blanket for my oldest daughter's teacher. She is expecting in the middle of September but her time with my daughter will be over in just two days. I am hoping to get it done by Tuesday so we can take it to her on her last "Teacher" school day. This is the blanket that I am making for her.

So back to knitting I go. I also started reading The Knitting Circle this afternoon. So far I don't want to put it down. I have to though because I am not coordinated enough to read and knit at the same time.

I will post a picture when it is finished.

Happy Knitting

I Have Been Tagged

Tabitha tagged me so here goes.

7 Random Facts about me

1. None of my children are born in the same state.

2. I met my husband in a grocery store.

3. We enjoy going to zoos on vacation.

4. I do the majority of the lawn mowing during the summer.

5. I love reruns of JAG. I am purchasing the seasons on DVD as they come out.

6. I am one of six kids.

7. My best girl friend is my sister in law. My brother did really well.

I am a stick in the mud so I am not going to pass this on but if you want to do go for it and consider yourself tagged.

Happy knitting.

Hubby's Socks are Finally Working

I have been trying to make my wonderful husband a pair of socks for about two weeks now. I keep having to rip them out and I was almost to the point where his socks were going into the "Knit Later" pile. I think I have finally gotten the start that is going to finish this pair. They are being knitted in Cherry Tree Hill in Slate. I will admit that I am not in love with this yarn. I find it very frustrating to knit with but I will probably buy more of it since some of the colors that they have are calling my name.

I also got some yarn recently from Yarn4Socks. It is some Zen Yarn Garden in Fuzzy Navel. I thought it looked like a good summery colorway.

I know Marshmallow Thief has been getting a lot of blog time lately and will probably continue to do so since he is in such a neat stage right now. I don't want anyone to think that I have forgotten about the Pumpkin and Princess StinkerBug. This is a picture of Princess StinkerBug in all of her "dress up" glory. She is such a fun little girl to have around the house. She even likes to do the dishes.
I wonder how long that will last.

It is kind of a chilly day here in Minnesota, so I think I will knit. Happy knitting all.

Okay So I Am Slow

I realize that I finished these socks over a week ago but here is a picture finally.
I guess I am should quit taking pictures of the Marshmallow Thief. Not going to happen.

I had to frog hubby's socks. Stupid sock did not fit a normal man size foot. That is what you get for wanting boring Vanilla Socks. NO ribbing caused me to Rippit Rippit. Since that happened I have been working on my Naga Socks and a baby blanket. I will finish these socks because my husband is wonderful and deserves a pair of handmade socks.

And yes little Marshmallow Thief, the bowl is empty. Where do you put all that food?????

Have a great weekend and Happy Knitting!!!!

Beware!!!! Thief on the Loose!!!! Danger and Havoc!!!!

I must warn you. There is a thief on the loose. He is considered dangerous until marshmallows are offered. He is charming and shy but can easily cause havoc in knitting baskets. As this poor dark picture can attest to.

Our marshmallow thief has learned to walk. Wow. He is so excited by what he can do. The only bad thing is he is into everything. He can't seem to stay out of anything which is starting to drive me a little crazy.

On the knitting front, as little as it is, my purple socks picture turned out blurry so I will try to get a picture tomorrow and post it.

Happy knitting!!!!

From Stealing the Mouse to Marshmallows

I think our Mouse Thief has started a life of crime. He has moved up the criminal ladder to marshmallows. I found the Mouse Thief in the kitchen with his hand in the bag of minature marshmallows. He really likes them. Oh I hope that motorcycles aren't next.

I also got my Socks That Rock yarn in the mail the other day but this is the first chance I have had to post it. The colors are Chapman Springs for a pair of socks for my wonderful sister in law and the other color is Knitty Rocks and that pair will be for ME!!!! There was no way that she was getting a pair with that yarn and I wasn't.

Happy Knitting!!!
