These Little Piggies (and a Pigskin)

This little piggie was warm, this little piggie was cold,
this little piggie likes to sit, this little piggie has a mommy who knits,
and this little piggie was glad for some yellow socks.

I made these socks for my little punkinbug. I started these socks on September 14th and finished them this morning. They fit pretty good and they were a very quick knit. I will make some more for her I am sure. They were made with Louet Pearl in the Goldilocks colorway. I used a pattern from the Sensational Knitted Sock book in the Oblique Openwork pattern for the cuff.

To all my Minnesota Viking fans, just remember that it doesn't affect their ranking in the NFC stats. I am just glad the Chiefs finally won since they haven't won all season or the preseason.

Yes, Elisabeth, Homework Can Be Fun!!!!

I am really enjoying "helping" Punkin with her homework. Today she had a paper that she needed to fill out how many shoes, beds, lamps, forks, and doors we had in our house. It was really interesting thinking of all the doors we had. I never thought that we had 17 doors in our home. This is Punkin with most of the shoes that we could find. We counted 78 single shoes and I know we missed alot. Wow maybe time to "destash" the shoes huh????

I have been doing a "little" knitting. This pair of socks is for the newly named Punkinbug. She decided she didn't like the name Stinkerbug anymore. I am using Louet Pearl in the Goldilocks colorway. I am using a pattern from the Sensational Knitted Socks book. Little people socks sure knit up fast.

This other pair is for me. I am still working on the Perchance to Knit socks and maybe one of these days I will finish them. I am not letting myself cast on another pair until they are done. I know if I did this one would never get finished. I am determined not to have any lonely socks.

I Love Autumn!!!!!

I have no pictures. I haven't done enough knitting to show off anything since yesterday. I am just excited that it is Autumn, well at least here in Minnesota the last couple of days. Do you want to know why I am excited???? I have worn hand knit socks the last two days. I love Autumn.

What I Did While the StinkerBug was at Preschool!!!!

I picked up the living room and vacuumed. Yes that is a floor without toys, dolls, blankets, books, and shoes. I am sure it won't stay that way long. Yes my wonderful husband, I don't just sit and knit all day.

I made supper. It is a chili day here in Minnesota (pun intended) and I thought it would be perfect to make a big crockpot of chili so I can knit this afternoon.

I washed dishes. I am still waiting to win the lottery so I can have a full time housekeeper to do this but it has to be done. I guess I need to play the lottery to win though huh???

NO, I haven't knitted in almost three days. This is a current picture of the blanket I am working on. I plan to work on it this afternoon if all goes well.
