Happy Grandparent's Day!

Happy Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!  Did everyone know that yesterday, September 8th, was Grandparent's day?  I did not.  However, Alexxis sent me a nice card and some cute pictures.  I am taking pictures of pictures here, so I hope they come out.  Isn't she a cutie!

Do you remember my gun fiasco of last week?  Well, I traded my pink ladies .38 special for a .22 magnum. I have not shot my new gun (yet) but I am certain I will be much happier with it.  It is pretty much the same size...just not pink.  I got some hollow point bullets for it.

When we went to the gun show to trade this gun, I actually walked around knitting....I had the yarn coming from my purse and I gut quite a few weird looks.  Most of the weekend I worked on Tauri for my friend Marie.  It is plain garter stitch for 52 inches so it takes no thinking.  I am at about 22 inches and just added my 3rd skein of yarn (It takes 6 skeins total).

I got a few rows done on Paige's sweater......

Now, isn't that the cutest project Bag?  My friend Darlene sewed me a bunch of these bags...she made me this M&M one, and it has brown material with white polka dots on the inside...they are reversible.  I have some with sock monkeys on it, and red and white polka dots, and bumble bee ones with black and white, and coffee ones that are brown....I love them!  She is probably tired of me asking her to sew things for me (even though she says she isn't...she is awesome). She also sews the lining for the crochet bags I have made.....

Speaking of project bags, I forgot to mention that when we went on that knitting retreat to my sister's lake house the gals all pitched in and one lady made a couple of UT project bags for me.....they are so awesome....I LOVE all my project bags!!!

In one of the bags above is my scarf swap scarf....I wish I could show you a picture, but I can't....just know that I am working on it.

I also decided that I want to get that 3rd and last crochet bag done, so I am hoping to work on this more this week so I can just count it as a project done.

Antonio and I had fun this past weekend....I am not sure if I have mentioned how much Antonio loves "Balls"...all kinds of balls.  He decided to sit in a rubbermaid tub with some of his balls but he would not smile for me......

 However, I do not give up that easy.....I was able to sneak this picture of him trying to not smile in the tub with bubbles (Don't bubbles make all kids smile?)!

I hope you all have a great week......Oh, I got this from one of the ladies in my LSSK group.....too cute not to share......

Happy Happy Knitting!
