Happy December and first day to open those Adent Calendars!

 Hey everyone....I know, I know...I need to get better about posting here.  I am sorry!  It is already December and I have a TON of pics to share with you.


It is time to open those adent calendars!  I got the David's Tea calendar from Darlene (she gets it for me every year because she is amazing)!





Celeste turned 13 (can you believe I am the grandmother of a teenager?) and we went to an Escape room and then Dave and Busters...she went to Colorado with her family, and Yvette (her mother) is expecting again.....my amazing family is growing!





As for knitting, I recently started a Mae sweater for Shyla




I started a musselburgh for Trenton


I started dishcloths for Darlene (she liked the ones from Friendsgiving so much)!


I started a hat just because I loved the pattern (and had just purchsed the yarn).


I have been plugging away at the stained glass blanket (and got my nails done)


I got the last color for the blanket recently (I still need the last ivory color).


I also ordered next year's Monthly Blanket kit!





I bought some yarn for socks......this was all Elizabeth's fault!


I got some yarn from Eat Sleep Knit's Black Friday sale...this is Malabrigo Rios in the Medusa Colorway


I finished one of the hats and the dishcloths



I was not feeling well for Thanksgiving and there were some newborns at Thanksgiving so I stayed home (and sent my parents with the mashed potatoes):



Paige surprised Bizzle with a trip to see the Dallas Cowboys (Bizz's favorite team):





and Paige got me this great wall hanging for my bedroom....I love it!



That is all I have.....have a great week!










Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

It's already November!

   Hey everyone.....can you believe it is already November?  2022 is almost here!  Yikes!


So I have not had too much going on, but lots of fun events to share....Antonio had his 10th birthday....we went out to eat at Cheesecake Factory and Paige surprised him with a PS5!  




Here he is Halloween!

I did not have a single trick or treater for Halloween....but I live in a small neighboorhood, not on a main street and not many kids in this neighborhood.

I also got to see Celeste....who has her 13th birthday party coming next weekend.....ouch I feel hold but man is she growing into a beautiful little lady!



My mom and sister are home from Germany.....and here are a couple fun pics....


Me with my grandparents


My Tante Mecki and my mom (right).


I also got my Erlbacher Gearhart CSM Speedster machine....I made a sock and dropped a stitch at the very end I could not pick up.....








I bought some Christmas Yarn in hopes to make Christmas socks for my family for Christmas



I finished one of Trenton's hats and worked on another




I had friendsgiving with knitting friends...thank you to Margi for hostessing!  Her home is beautiful!



I worked on a hat while there and finished it...the Caramel Brulee hat.




For friendsgiving I had to make 2 pot holders, and I made 2 for Darlene to give as gift as well...






And these are the two I got (I stole them from Darlene....LOL)!




My house is coming along...but I have been procrastinating on the painting...I hate it!  But it will get done one day....maybe in 2023!




I washed all of Jackson's toys and he was in toy heaven


My friend, Jennifer, was making the Musselburgh hat with the hobby lobby yarn bee authentic yarn in Natural Slate color and I fell in love....so I got some yarn on sale from Hobby Lobby (they have chunky now too):




I think that is all I have....Yall have a great week!





Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
