Not Summer Yet?

whhhhhewwwww.....Damn it is HOT......and it is not even Summer yet.  The first day of summer is officially in 11 days (June 21st)....but it is already hot.  Paige thinks her AC is broke, even her thermostat thinks it is broke...it ran for 5 hours yesterday and her house temperature increased 5.5 degrees....yikes.


She also had car issues last Friday......thankfully it was just the battery, even though I tried to jump it and it would not jump.  Auto Zone got it going.....


Jax made a huge mud hole in my yard after the rain


And just after I washed all the sheets and vacuumed a million times....this happened Saturday morning......off to wash again!


I did take Jax to go see my parent's dog, Bella, for a while...and Opa (my daddy), but Jax some toys




Here he is Sunday night playing with toy number one....yup, changed duvet cover and everything




I had Antonio and two of this friends all day Saturday.....they made a mess of the house and built a fort in every room



Antonio made a fortnite design he was very proud of


and I was exhausted....but I did get a little bit of knitting in.....I started and finished my June hat....well, all except the seaming...it is a turban style hat so it just knit as one long strip and then seamed together



and I worked on my moondrip sweater......I am about 6" into the body.



Darlene's daughter, Shyla, made me the greatest yarn box.......


She is AMAZING.....she has other yarn boxes too....you can ask for a custom request.....her word work is so fabulous!!!!

I worked a little more on Tim's ATM hat.....the duplicate stitch is tedious and I do not like to do too much at one time because I think I get sloppy....so I do just a little at a time to try to keep it neat.


July is the brioche hat....I want to make this hat called Teazle

The following picture is COPYRIGHT HUNTER HAMMERSEN, 2009-2017

and I think I will use the 2nd picture yarn......Come on July!



Well, that is all I have.....I hope you all have an amazing week.....and Happy Father's Day to all those Father's out there this coming Sunday...have a great weekend!





Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Deadlines, Deadlines, Deadlines.....Yikes!

Hey everyone....how has your week been?  Mine has been okay.......I had 2 fo's!   That is because they had deadlines.  I forgot that I had to finish those wrist warmers for the Support Anja KAL......so I did those.




Then put the pedal to the metal with the Baby Blanket....the shower is this coming Saturday and my mom and dad are going to take the blanket with them....I finished this past Saturday!



The only other thing I really worked on was my Moondrip....I know it does not look like much progress...but the rounds are long.....lots of stitches.


Antonio had his last soccer game of the season.




I asked him what he wanted to eat afterwards......Burgers, Pizza or Sushi.....this Kid....Sushi was the answer


I had Jax all week and weekend.....Love this boy!


Paige went out with her friends Ashley and boyfriend, Kody



Jaime got his RV....the 2nd and 3rd pics are of my new knitting chairs....LOL!




Antonio got his Orange/Black Belt!


And I busted my thumbnail so bad it hurts and I am a HUGE cry baby!



And that is all I have.....I hope the next few weeks are not too boring with only Moondrip being the main focus of my attention.

Have a great week everyone!

Happy Birthday Mommy!

Hi Everyone....How was your week?  Did you have a great Memorial Day?  Thank you to all service men and women and families who sacrifice for our great country!


This past Thursday was my mommy's Birthday.  Happy Birthday Mommy (I have pics of my dad to insert as well of them at a party recently)...Happy Birthday Mommy!






Antonio had a game this past Saturday....He did so good!




And I worked on a hat for Tim


Tim wants and ATM hat......and I would only make an ATM hat for family (me being the die hard Longhorn fan!)......and Tim is family (Darlene's son in law).  Now, I was not sure if I should do colorwork....or duplicate stitch.  I ran out of maroon yarn on the colorwork one and not sure if I want to go forward with the duplicate stitch....but we will see....I need to order more yarn.  Any suggestions and/or recommendations are welcome




Speaking of ATM....I got two new cups from Darlene's son, Casey....he got me a maroon ATM one sine he loves me so much and knows what a Longhorn I am.....the maroon is my new FAVORITE cup!  THANK YOU CASEY! 




Jaime is buying a new RV this week....and he has a few things he wants to do with it...then we want to go on a trip with it....I cannot wait.  Here is a picture of a knitting chair in my future!





Last week I told you that Darlene and I are crocheting the Phoenix Blanket.....well, new videos for the pattern came out and we both ripped back and started over:



Also.....I think I told you I ordered yarn to make Atlanticus to match my rug.....well it came in.....I LOVE IT!  It is HUGE!



My friend, Tenia, had a color street nail party.....so I got some french manicure ones...they are buy one get one free....hint, hint  Link Here.  I really like them!



I also worked on the baby boy blanket....shower in less than 2 weeks I think....I am on my 2nd skein.


I got a new bag from Darlene and I LOVE IT!  It is the XL bag and every knitter/crocheter/crafter needs one this size



I got to divide for sleeves on my moondrip and Love the Bag!  Now for the boring knitting for 13-15 inches.


I made some apple turnovers from a recipe from Darlene's family......I have not tried them yet....but I hope to today.


And I had Jax and Antonio most of this past weekend.....I love this little boy!


Lastly....I worked on the wrist warmers for Support Anja Kal.  I need to have these finished by Friday!


Well, that is all I have.....Have a great week everyone!
