One Proud Momma!

Hi everyone!  How are you?  Jaime and I went to NM this past weekend and he drove while I got to knit and it was a much needed get away for me! 

Paige closed on her house and moved in.....I am so proud of her!  Well, the house is not 100% hers....the *#%#()&@#% she is buying from forgot to do some paperwork so they had to overnight forms back and forth to Oklahoma.......but she is moved in on a leaseback at no charge to her....and we sign again today....fingers crossed it all goes well!

Here she is signing (apparently a practice run) ....

She bought a couch set (well, part of this set was a gift from me).
 And a Rug....it looks like a shag rug...I really like it:
Then it was time for a new washer and dryer:

And she had movers move her in on Saturday.......she is not 100% settled (the furniture has not been delivered yet) but she is getting there and I am so proud of her!

Here are the dishtowels Darlene got her....she loves them and they look fabulous in her kitchen!

Now as for knitting.....I FINISHED that Mammoth of a shawl.....What the Fade!  It blocked to 8 feet by 4 feet and used about a mile of yarn!  WOW!

I worked on Paige's Dishrags and Potholders for her new house.....I finished one dishtowel and started a new potholder....different pattern that I like better!

I also worked on my socks a little.....This past September is the first month I did not finish a pair of socks in about 2 years...but I love having them on the needles....just no pressure to finish by a certain date.

I got a little worried about my dad's Ranger sweater I am making him....so I did a gauge swatch (after I have already knit a nice amount of the sweater) and wanted to see if I can get the swatch to block to 4".  I did....so I am going to keep going on his sweater and pray it is not too small!

My new grandpup, Jazz, has been doing great....I think she loves her new house....before she left, I got a few cute pics of her....one looks like she is watching TV, one is where she jumped into the tub on accident and then one sleeping and one is the result of her sharp puppy teeth!

I got a new Knitting shirt....I love it.  If you are not a Harry Potter fan, you won't get it...but I love it!

Well, that is all I have.......As for the trip Jaime and I took to NM, I did not get many pics, but a got a few.

Have a great week everyone!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

  1. Hi Carrie. Congratulations to Paige! That is fantastic and quite an accomplishment. The New Mexico pictures are great. I'm so glad you had your much needed get away. We all need that at times. Your grandpup is so cute! The shawl and socks look wonderful. I'm getting ready to knit on my Slothmas socks in bed right now. I hope you have a great week! Hugs!
