Happy New Year!!!

 I hope everyone had a Happy New Year!



I ended last year knitting on a sock head hat for Darlene's grandson....I knitted a little over 7 inches and then sent to Darlene.....this is going to be an amazing hat



I also knit 6 ornaments for next year to give as gifts.....see, I am ahead of the game for next year!


I loved the wavy legs hat that I gifted to much that I ordered more Berroco Vintage yarn to make a couple more hats.



Paige posted a gorgeous picture of herself that I had to steal and repost....look how long her hair is!



My mom fell on the 29th (she is okay, she has been dizzy, but is okay) so I needed to take her to get a cat scan....they had to poke her arm 3 times....but she's a trooper.



Jax got a new baby from Paige (I watched all of Paige's dogs for New Years Eve, so this was Paige's way of rewarding Jax for putting up with the home invasion...LOL) and I love how he sleeps on his baby's



In the Knit and Crochet world, I have been working on that Perfect Pockets wrap for my author friend....It is hard to photograph this color, but it is electric blue/turquoise



And Darlene's Birthday Present.....also a hard color to photograph, but it is the exact same color as the Easy One sweater I made myself last year.




Darlene has ordered me my birthday gift....4 skeins of Hedgehog Sock Yarn in the Matchstick color way so I can make Granito!  Thank you Darlene....You are the BEST best friend a girl can have!  I cannot wait to start this project!


I hope y'all have a fabulous new year!  





Happy Happy Happy New Year!

Christmas Done.....Here comes 2021

 Hey everyone.....I am sure I am not the only one that is ready to say goodbye to 2020......Christmas is done and it was very good to me.  I finished Darlene's wrap, and I also gifted her the test knit I do every year for my friend, Brigit, in The Netherlands.....her Advent Stole is a dream to test knit every year!









I even squeezed out a hat for Bizz and an ornament for Ped.





Now, the ornament above took me 5 hours......like for real maybe even a little more than 5 hours....but this much simpler pattern takes a lot less time (but I did not try this one till after Christmas)......so this is what my future ornament knitting will be:



Darlene got me my annual tea calendar and mug that I absolutely love, but she also made me the most gorgeous quilt that is as soft as butter!  Thank you Darlene!






I also finished that hat I was working on for a friend's father, and the Christmas tree I was crocheting....Paige stole the Christmas tree, put it in her house with lights in it.....






I also finished my Hedgehog Fibers blanket....and signed up for next years blanket with Jimmy Beans Wool....Next year is Malabrigo Rios Yarn.



Darlene's grandson wants a Rasta hat.....so I found this yarn in stash:





Antonio got a Y Flicker scooter and learned to shoot a BB gun......




A special someone got me some beautiful Daisies.....they make me smile everyday!





Lastly, my kids got me a Food Saver (Yeah!!!) and some amazingly soft pants (not pictured because they are on my body) and my parents got me a Lululamon oversized 1/2 sweat shirt....I love it all!  I was definitely spoiled this year!



Well, I think that is all I have.......good bye 2020.....Hello 2021, and please be better to us.....I hope to be more consistent with my blog next year.....thanks for following me!




Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Still Christmas Knitting......

 Hey everyone...how are you?  I am still Christmas knitting.....Yikes!  I am trying to hard to get done....LOL!


I also got my December yarn for my blanket....and just as I thought, it is another main color that I do not need, but will keep for a hat or something.



Melissa, Elizabeth and I podcasted episode 8 (link here) and Elizabeth had her annual Christmas party....not many pics, as we all socially distanced.








Melissa got us monogramed cups...I love them!



I started a crocheted bobble tree



and a hat for our Hat KAL on the podcast



and my author friend sent me an autographed book she has out for Christmas.....its a Christmas Novella and you really should give it a read.....It is called Judge me Not.  Thank you Maggie!




Well, that is really all I have....have a great week....and remember to be kind!





Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
