10 days to turkey day!

Hey everyone!  How are you?  I am okay......it is just 10 days away till Thanksgiving...are you ready?  I am fortunate enough to not have to do 'everything' for the big day, just some amazing mashed potatoes and show up at my aunts house....yes, I have it easy, but it is one of my favorite holidays (along with Christmas).....so I cannot wait!!

I am making some socks for one of the boys that comes to our thanksgiving celebration....if you are a regular follower, you know I already made him one pair and they were too small, so here is the 2nd pair....both feet just need heels added.


I also pulled out Graces socks to work on......


Speaking of Grace....here is my beauty queen with her friend Shelby:




Darlene finished Paige's wallaby and it looks amazing on her



I am still working on the one I am making her......I know, I suck.....my mojo has been super low lately....I have no clue what is up with that......so the above is all I have in the knitting/crocheting aspect...but if you wanna know my other shenanigans.....read on.

Jax still has friends coming over....Kayta top left, puppy (Chuck) top right, and Jax on the bottom.


One of these three got a hold of one of my MadelineTosh sock in Antique colorway.....GRRRRR


I went to Celeste's volleyball and got snuggles in with Alesso (Alessandro Liam, Celeste's brother)


Bizzle gave me my Chirstmas present early.....because she was SOOOOOOO excited to give it to me, she could not wait....and I LOVE IT!



I went to the deer lease with Jaime....and he forgot the keys to the RV...but he did shoot an Axis Doe


And Antonio had a soccer game on Saturday morning and one of the players invited us to IHOP after the game....so we went, and Antonio got a chocolate shake and was so excited



and then Antonio, Celeste and I went to see her dad aka my son, Erich......and she was supposed to be doing her presentation but she crashed!


Lastly, there was a blood red looking sunrise last week and I tried so hard to properly capture the color and just could not....sorry...but it was gorgeous...and imagine this with a beautiful blood red color.


Have a great week!





Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Brrrrrrrrr

Good morning!  I hope y’all are warm!  It froze here I’m SA last night and man is it cold!!!!

First I want to thank all those veterans out there!  Thank you for your service!


This past week I went to the deer lease!  I was fun watching these sheep!




But it was pretty cold and too muddy to hunt so we came home and went to pluckers...my favorite fat girl restaurant!!




Antonio has a soccer game and we got some great pics!



What have I been knitting you ask?  Well socks and mitts!!



Darlene seems to be in a hat mood and I had just the yarn for a hat for Shyla....so I started it for her....Darlene will finish it....it’s a Scottish Tam that will be felled!



 Darlene finished a Wallaby for Paige and it looks great on me!  So maybe the one I’m making Paige will stay at my house?



I also started a crochet blanket to work on during these cold days we have been having lately....I love this pattern.  It’s called the Good Vibes Throw


That’s all I have!  Have a great week!!!





Happy happy happy knitting!

Crochet Squares

Hey everyone...how are you doing?  I am doing A-Ok I guess.....can you believe it is already November?  I can't.....pretty soon Thanksgiving, then Christmas, then New Years and then 2020!!!  WTF?  Wow!

Anyway, I have not been up to much. I finished the blanket for my trainer and his wife





Other than that....just making squares....a friend's grandson was recently diagnosed with Cancer.....so we (her friends) are making squares to make prayer blanket for the grandson......this is pretty much the only thing I have worked on lately.




I did get to see Celeste this past week at one of her volleyball games....her, Alessandro and Cat.....but I did not snap a picture of Cat because she was too busy running around with Antonio.




Then it was time for Halloween....Here is Paige and Antonio


Then I got pics of Alexxis and Mario



and I have to share that my nephew was the pope!  Here he is with his girlfriend:



Paige made me some amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup for Halloween (I went to her house to pass out candy)


Well, it really put me in a soup mood....so I made Zuppa Toscana:


I have tons of leftovers....I gave some to Paige and Kody and fed some to Jaime...but I still have 2 or 3 more at home....which will be my dinner for the next few days I guess


That is pretty much all I have....here is a picture of me in my favorite PJ's (with matching mug) settling in to make squares and a picture of a very pretty sunrise this morning......its hard to believe we had an extra hour this past weekend...but we did.



Have a great week!




Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
