Happy Belated 4th!

Hey ya'll....can you believe it is already July?  Well, I am a couple of days late, but Happy Independence Day!


I had a great week this week...but my tendon at my elbow is killing me and I think it might be the knitting...I might have to force myself to learn continental knitting....and I am a little bummed over it because I am sure my gauge will be different....we will see how it goes.

I finished the dishcloths for Darlene....and I made this super cute scrubbie....Jennifer found the pattern.



So I had to make another scrubbier to match her past dishcloths....


Then, Darlene was supposed to go to Amarillo this week so I made a set for Nina...but she ended up not going, so she is going to mail it to Nina.


Jax hung out with me in my yarn room and brought a pillow...I thought it was so cute, I had to snap a picture. I usually don't have those buckets of cotton out, but I was looking for yarn for Nina....so they are in the picture.


Lastly, I decided toward not he hat for Bizzle...I am loving they way it s coming out....I hope to finish this week.


That is all the knitting I have, but I did get some new workout shirts.....





Have a great week every one!!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all you father's out there........Here I am with my daddy last night!


This week was a great week knitting wise for me......I finished Brinley's top....well, as much as I could.  Darlene is going to need to put it on Brinley and measure out the straps to kitchener stitch.





I worked on my Jimmy Beans Blanket Club Blanket too.....I have made it thru April's yarn....now to do May and then June was more of the main color....so once I get the May first wedge done, I have to wail till July.



I got in yarn for my halter top and I cast it on.



I did my own nails the other day...it is a street color kit that I bought over a year ago.  I really like it.


Im still eating healthy and exercising....even though my body is super sore lately....I might need a break....


I ordered the cutest shirt the other day....I can't wait for it to get here.


This is my baby almost every morning after I wake up....he goes and and gets in my spot on the bed....I think he is hoping I will come back to bed and cuddle with him....LOL!


That is all I've got.....Have a great week everyone.



Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Knitting is not a crime!

Hey everyone.....How are you?  I hope all is well with you.....My title this week has to do with some accessories.....Have you heard of Succaplokki?  Well, they are an etsy shop from Finland and their tag line is Knitting is not a Crime......look at this adorable gauge set!


So how has your week been?  Mine has been okay....It has been HOT here in TX.....this past Tuesday was 107 degrees......



I got to see the girls again this past Wednesday and we (including Antonio) went for a walk (and then to eat our burned calories at Baskin Robbins).


And speaking of walking.....I glanced at my "Weekly Summary" on my watch today and almost 41 miles in one week......that just shocks me as I know how sedentary I used to be.


I am still eating fairly healthy (I do cheat here and there)


I finished all the dishcloths/potholders!


Then I thought I would pull out my blanket club and do a little work on it (The June shipment is supposed to be delivered today).


Then, Darlene decided to make a Halter Top/Bra Top for Baylee.....so I told her I would look in stash and make one too (I love to knit the same thing Darlene is knitting) so she sent me the yarn (Berroco Modern Cotton.....YUM!) and I said I could make one for Brinley....this pink is perfect for Brinley.....  the pattern is Get It Girl Bra Top



I love it so much, I ordered some extra pink to make a top for me to go with my pj bottoms and some red to go with another PJ bottom....




Well, that is all I have this week....hopefully I will have a finished halter top to show you next week.

Have a great week everyone!  and Happy Father's Day to all you Father's out there!
