Has it only been on week?

Hi everyone......I feel like I have had a months worth of things happen over this last week....I can't believe it is has only been a week.

First, Antonio had belt testing that Paige forgot about on Monday....so I had to go to her house, get his stuff (I got the wrong belt) and get it for his testing....thankfully the kenpo place had a correct belt for Antonio to borrow.....now he is an orange/white belt.



Then I had a stash enhancement (or more).....I got more of the Wolltraum yarn in rainbow color to make the Virus shawl:





Then I got some more "Just Knit It" shirts because my first one really does not fit well.


My friend sent me a picture of a wine glass she found for me.....



I worked a bit on my hitofude.....




My niece went to college and met her roommate!  My sister said she could not have asked for a nicer and sweeter roommate!




Then my parents had their 50th wedding anniversary!  We (my sister and I) took them out for sushi.  Here are my parents young and recently!


Then my world turned upside down.......I will spare you paragraphs of detail....but Jaime had a mild heart attack.  He needs bypass surgery which is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

I have been in hospitals all weekend.....all I knit on was my box cape because it is plain stockinette.  I think I did 7" over the weekend.....doesn't sound like much, but its a lot of stitches!


That's all I have.....Have a great week everyone.....and send Jaime some good thoughts if you don't mind!




Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Puppies, Puppies, Puppies!

Hi everyone...how have you been?  I have been great.  I feel like I have had a great week....I hope this week is just as great!  I have lots of puppies to show you and tell you about the puppies......

First for the knitting......I finished the Parallel Waves Shawl for Rosanna!  It looks great on her!




The only other thing I worked on was my Hitofude....I was a week behind...but now I am finally caught up....Yippee!!!!!!


Jaime and I had dinner with Nick and Star on Saturday night and did a repeat of Margaritas and Nachos like last Saturday....it was delicious and I did not snap a single pic.....sorry.

Sunday it was time for dinner with my family....Grace leaves to college on Wednesday, so we had a mini good luck party for her, and at that get together, we got to meet some new puppies, but first....my sister recently lost one of her dogs....Hunter....he was very sick and he will be missed so much.


However, 2 days before losing Hunter, she got two new puppies.  Nikolai and Oslo (Niki and Ozzy for short).



Here is Jaime holding Niki

Oma with both


 Opa and Niki

 Grace with Ozzy

Oma with Ozzy (I think Opa is in the background sleeping with Niki):




My sister still has Sasha and Savannah (Nana for short):

Here is Sasha and Sean



Nana (yup, she is getting up there in age):



Then, Bizzle got a new puppy....a great dane that she has not named yet.  Bizz lives with her sister, so the dog was going to stay at Paige's house.....but Bizz's sister said that if Bizz cleans more around the house, that the dog can stay with them......Antonio and Paige are pretty smitten with her:




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

Feeling Better!

Well, I am feeling much better!  Apparently I was feeling worse than I thought last week because I just realized that I never published last weeks blog post......GRRRRRRR....if you are interested, I finally posted it here.

I still have a few days of antibiotics and I cannot wait to finish them....they make my mouth taste like metal...LOL!

So what have I been up to?  Well, I finished the Augusta Shawl!


And then worked on my friend's Parallel Waves Shawl....I got like 25 more rows done (from the stitch marker in the picture all the way up)....I still need about 50 more rows to finish.


Then Paige told me that Bizzle (her best friend) is about to have a nephew (Bizzle's brother's wife is due) and the baby shower is Sunday at noon (she told me this on Saturday).....

I sent her pics of blue yarn


She picked the dark one......Then Jaime and I went to have nachos and Margaritas :)






Yup, in the midst of knitting emergency, we had date night.

So on Sunday I cast on the hat for Paige and finished in a few hours....and she thinks I am amazing :)


 
I was also very proud of Paige....she went to give free back to school hair cuts this past weekend.
 


The only other thing I knit on this week was my hitofude....I am still not caught up because I started over a week later...but I am still trying to catch up.  LOL!



Lastly, I got a new t-shirt that I love!  It is a little snug (I need to loose weight) so I ordered a man's size too in red, but it has not come in yet.


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