Happy Birthday Antonio!

Good morning everyone!  I hope you had a fabulous week!  I am sorry I am a day late getting my blog post up...I have been crazy with Grand kids!  This past Friday was Antonio's 4th birthday....more on that later.

Let's start with stash enhancements.  I got a new insert for my graces cases.  This way, my one case can hold 6 (yes, six) sets of interchangeable needles.....how exciting!

I got another skein of Desert Vista Dyeworks (DVD) yarn in the If They Kill Maggie colorway.  I want to do the officially unofficial sock a month thing next year, so I need a few more to make sure I have 12 skeins of this yarn.....but I have ordered it all and it should be here in a couple of different shipments soon!

Now, this next stash enhancement I do not  have in my hot little hands yet...but I LOVE IT...it is BCYarnings  (Berry Colorful Yarnings) and it is sooooo awesome.  Here is one full repeat knit up by Michelle herself!

Now, I really did not get much knitting done this past week....like I said...I have been crazy with grand kids.....but I did finish these Hermoine's Everyday Socks.

Then, do you remember the slippers I made for Antonio in July?  Well, they were too small, so I decided to redo them.....I put my needle in below the decreases:

Then, pulled out the kitchner stitch and frogged both of them:

I attached new yarn (where I thought the striping would continue well) and continued to knit.....

I knitted about an inch more and then decreased....they fit much better, but I wonder if they are still too small....Paige will have to let me know.

I also worked a little on my Halloween socks.....I really love this sock base...the yarn is from The Cozy Knitter (and yes, I have more on the way to me in some burnt orange, grey and black).

Okay.....that is all I have for the knitting,....now onto my grand children shenanigans......I got to hang out with Antonio on Thursday night.....

Then, here is his birthday dinner on Friday with his mommy!

Meanwhile, I took Celeste with me to see her daddy....here she is working on some beading.

These beads are kind of cool, there is a template you can follow or go freestyle....then, you spray these beads with water....yes, water.....and they stay in place (after they dry for about 20 min):

Then, on Sunday it was time for Antonio's birthday party.....Paige scheduled the party at a place called "Pump It Up", and we had a blast.....
Here is Celeste after she went down the big slide.

Then, Celeste and Cataleya

and of course....the birthday boy!
With his Spiderman cake!

And, that is all I have....I was exhausted by the time the weekend was over....but it was great hanging out with my grand kids!

Have a great week everyone!

Happy Happy Knitting!
