Hot or Cold? Make up your mind!

Talk about jumping from Hot to Cold......I went from Heater, to AC back to Heater this last week.  The weather really does not know what it wants to do with itself.

The hardest part is dressing for it.....46 degrees in the morning with an afternoon of 82.....GRRRR!

Oh well, I mostly stayed in and knitted and crocheted so I guess I should not complain too much....but it is hard to dress for work.

So what did I do?  Well, on Monday Jaime took me out to eat to Pluckers.  It all started with a FB post from Darlene's daughter, Shyla, talking about some "Tater Cakes" that sounded amazing....Tater Tots squished into a cupcake pan filled with cheese, bacon and chives, with a side of sour cream....aka I told Jaime that I wanted to check it out some time and he said "Let's go today".....Yahooooo!!!

Let me tell you, those Tater Cakes were AM-AAAAAA-ZING!  I love them.  The wings were good too, but I will be going back for the tater cakes!

I finished the Crochet Blanket for Jaime's Newphew's Wife....I know I told ya'll the baby was born last week...but now the blanket is finally finished...I had about 20 more rows to do.....

During lunch, work on my weekender with Darlene and Heather (she is new to the knitting lunch break and is also making weekender).

I had a great mail week.....remember that yellow stole I made for Darlene....well, I won a prize from that KAL.....some great stitch markers!

I also got my prize from a HiyaHiya KAL.....some new HiyaHiya Flyers to knit on socks and a pair of cotton socks with sheep on them...Thank you Qianer!

Then I got some Alpaca Pom Poms from Nodrog Fars....they are big and is a picture of them next to my fur pompoms....

This past weekend I worked on Graces sweater (I also had a FB memory pop up that I finished Paige's 2 years ago).

and my Football Hat....I am really missing Football, so working on this hat helped a little...the colors are for the Spurs for Paige!

I am not really a color work fan....but I'm trying.

I ordered some yarn to make a hat for Darlene's son.....Brinley (the granddaughter that does motorcycle riding) has colors of Hot Pink and Kawasaki I am making a hat with those colors.  Oh, and she also got a sponsor from CA.....isn't that exciting!  I am so happy for them!

Lastly, my mom had her treatments this past week and my sister took any prayers you have to offer up are appreciated....she is doing well, but could always do better.  :)

Have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Unimpressive Super Bowl

Well....wasn't that Super Bowl unimpressive!!!  I know there are a lot of ppl doggin the 1/2 time show too, but I love Adam Levine and I think he did great.  Antonio loves Travis Scott and he enjoyed it while it might not have been "the greatest thing in the world", I certainly did not think it was bad, I enjoyed it!

As far as the Patriots....

Last week I helped a friend move on Monday and Tuesday.....she lived on the 3rd floor in an apartment complex and was moving into her boyfriend's home about an hour away.....I went up and down those 38 stairs a billion times (not that I was counting...LOL)!  She had TWO closets full of clothes and shoes!

I got Bizz and Paige off to the Airport Tuesday morning (Paige might have packed some mini vodka bottles)

They had a layover in Houston

They went to the Aquarium, ate at Atlanta Breakfast Club and saw the Atlanta Skyline

Then it was time for the awards show.....double fisting drinks

And they met Charles Barkley!

Then they came home to me Thursday and I was thrilled to have them back in SA!  While they were gone I had Paige's two dogs (along with my dogs) and I got a couple of pics of her new dog, Jax....his lopsided ear is so cute

I finished working the rest of the yarn I had from part one of the Crocheted is not quite 18" but close!

Then, Jaime's Newphew and wife welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world and I am late getting the blanket done....but close

I started and finished the Hat for February.....the pattern is called Frosty.

Then it was time to start a KAL with the LSSK girls....we are doing the Spector are my colors I think I want to do from right to left

 My swatch

My start

Lastly, I worked a little on my Weekender to get it to 8" and started the Football hat during the Super Bowl yesterday....I am just barely past the ribbing because I did not want to have to think:

On an amazing side note......I got some deer meat from Darlene's daughter, Shyla, and amazing son-in-law, Tim.....I am one happy girl because I was out of deer meat!

That is what I have for the whole week.....I know it is more than usually but I had some extra time off Thursday (Antonio was sick) and I had taken Friday off (not knowing Antonio was going to be sick Thursday) as a day to just have for don't expect so much next week....LOL!

Have a great week everyone!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Not a good sign on a Monday!

Hi are you?  I am is not a good sign when you forget your coffee on a Monday morning.  Then when going to the break room at work to make coffee in my awesome French press cup from Darlene, I had to go back to the break room a 2nd time for sugar and then forgot creamer....I tell you, I do not function well without coffee.

But my coffee is now brewing and some earl grey tea too!

I got a picture of Paige wearing her hat finished hat

She leaves to Atlanta tomorrow with I worked on Bizz's hat too:

 And finished!

Darlene and I are going to make a couple of Football Hats...maybe for the April Scrappy Hat we ordered yarn and pom poms from Jimmy Beans Wool.......and it all came in!

We also joined the Jimmy Beans Wool Jan-Mar Crochet Club where we are making a pouf......we got our kits Friday

I had a K hook at home

And got started

I got maybe 1/2 way done with the first clue.

I was not able to work on my pouf all weekend because Jaime's nephew's wife is due one week from I need to get a baby blanket done for her.....

I am only about 1/4 of the way done....but this is what I will pretty much be crocheting on all week:

Well, I think that is it.....Paige leaves to Atlanta tomorrow so I will have my  hands full with Antonio and Paige's 2 not sure how much I will have to post next week.....we will see.

Have a great week everyone!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
