Hello October!

Good Morning!  How are you?  Welcome October!


It was a bit cooler this morning....so I am feeling a small change......and I am wearing my Weekender today....so Welcome Sweater Weather!

Speaking of sweaters.....I finished my Torbellino!



I hope to wear it later this week!  So what else did I do?

Well, I ate pizza......gluten free and it was delicious!


Kayta (I have no clue if I spell this right) came over for a visit



I had seven (yes seven) vials of blood drawn to see if it tells me if there is something wrong with me....I am still tired daily.


My rockstar sister and her husband (and other friends) rode 150 miles this past weekend for the MS 150....they have some friends with MS they ride for every year.....here they are after day 1 and 75 miles done.


 I went to the personal trainer again and this ball kicked my ass!


As far as Knitting.......my friends at the Thursday night knit group talked me into starting the Westkntis MKAL....it is called Starflake....


I may have bitten off more than I can chew with this KAL......I also have a test knit I have been working on (that is secret) and I found out this past weekend I am the most behind tester....so I need to get my crap together!

I am also working on the Wallaby for Paige


and started a Wallaby for Darlene's great niece, Elly.


Lastly, I have some adorable pictures of Alessandro.....my newest grandson.




Have a great week!







Happy, Happy, Happy Knitting!

Tomorrow is October?

Can you believe that tomorrow is October?  I can't....but it is true!

I really do not have a lot this week.....since I mostly only worked on my Torbellino.  I finished one sleeve.


I ordered the 2nd skein of yarn for my Phoenix....and decided I wanted the yellow on the inside....work out to burgundy, then go from burgundy to red....so I am gonna frog my initial start....and I restarted last night.





I got another new Bags By Awesomegrannie XL bag that I LOVE....such pretty witches!


Lastly, I got some new Harry Potter Pajamas!


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




Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Jackson having friend over

Hey everyone...How are you?  I am doing great....I got the new iPhone 11 Pro Max and I love it! 




Jackson's friend, Kayda (I have no clue if I am spelling that right), came over...and they played.



Jax let me take a picture of him with my new phone


My longhorns beat OSU and my sister, nephew and brother in law were at the game!


My parents are off to Costa Rica.....I hope they are having a great time!  My aunt has already posted some pics on FB I will share with you!





I got a new AMAZING bag from Darlene.....Christmas Gnomes!  I LOVE IT!!!!


The only thing I worked on all week is my Torbellino Sweater....and yesterday I realized that I was missing 37 rows on my spreadsheet so just when I thought I was caught up, I am behind again!


And I am still exercising.....proud of me?  I am! 


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






Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Sweater Burnout?

Hey everyone!  How are you?  I am doing great!  However, I feel like I am on a bit of a sweater burnout.......I finally got to divide for sleeves on my Torbellino....but I am tired of it....so I need a break.


I got a new hook from Furls from a great friend, Tammy....she knits/crochets with us at lunch....it is a rose gold/white one!


So, I used it to work on my Havana!


And then decided it would look great working on the Hugs and Kisses Blanket I started in July of 2018!



I also decided to crochet on Paige's Blanket....I only have like 4 stripes left so I really should just finish it!



The last knitting related item is the start of new socks for Karl....the last ones were too small!


As far as other things going on.....Paige got her car back....finally (which means I got mine back)!


After I got mine back, I found a ring that my mom gave to Paige years ago stuck under the seat.....she was thrilled I found it....she thought she lost it at the bowling alley on her birthday (the one on my ring finger below)!


During the week I made Banana bread and French Bread......I love bread!





and I made Darlene's favorite meal......Risotto!


Here is her lunch for today!



I ordered the new iPhone 11 Max Pro.....I cannot wait to get it!


Oh, and Antonio had golf lessons.....so this is not the greatest picture since I had to zoom so far.....but maybe with my new iPhone, the next picture will be better (We'll see)!


Have a great week everyone!
