Happy Father's Day Daddy!

Hey everyone....How have you been?  Did everyone have a great Father's Day yesterday?  I know I did......my Daddy is amazing!  We had a fabulous time yesterday celebrating this man!



Well, I have not had much this week....almost all my time has been spent on my moondrip swoncho (pic later).....but Darlene and I both finished our Turban hats for June




Antonio came over and we played Candy Land.....I have not played that game in forever....it was lots of fun


Paige took Antonio and Chief, Princess, and Jaz to the lakehouse........



I also had Celeste this past Saturday and she worked on her Pottery Wheel.....making a Coffee cup.....


Here is my Moondrip Swoncho...I got one sleeve done.....


and I started some DK Brioche socks.....I think they will be too big, but I am going to keep going with them...I am loving the way they look.....


And that is all I have........have a great week everyone!

Not Summer Yet?

whhhhhewwwww.....Damn it is HOT......and it is not even Summer yet.  The first day of summer is officially in 11 days (June 21st)....but it is already hot.  Paige thinks her AC is broke, even her thermostat thinks it is broke...it ran for 5 hours yesterday and her house temperature increased 5.5 degrees....yikes.


She also had car issues last Friday......thankfully it was just the battery, even though I tried to jump it and it would not jump.  Auto Zone got it going.....


Jax made a huge mud hole in my yard after the rain


And just after I washed all the sheets and vacuumed a million times....this happened Saturday morning......off to wash again!


I did take Jax to go see my parent's dog, Bella, for a while...and Opa (my daddy), but Jax some toys




Here he is Sunday night playing with toy number one....yup, changed duvet cover and everything




I had Antonio and two of this friends all day Saturday.....they made a mess of the house and built a fort in every room



Antonio made a fortnite design he was very proud of


and I was exhausted....but I did get a little bit of knitting in.....I started and finished my June hat....well, all except the seaming...it is a turban style hat so it just knit as one long strip and then seamed together



and I worked on my moondrip sweater......I am about 6" into the body.



Darlene's daughter, Shyla, made me the greatest yarn box.......


She is AMAZING.....she has other yarn boxes too....you can ask for a custom request.....her word work is so fabulous!!!!

I worked a little more on Tim's ATM hat.....the duplicate stitch is tedious and I do not like to do too much at one time because I think I get sloppy....so I do just a little at a time to try to keep it neat.


July is the brioche hat....I want to make this hat called Teazle

The following picture is COPYRIGHT HUNTER HAMMERSEN, 2009-2017

and I think I will use the 2nd picture yarn......Come on July!



Well, that is all I have.....I hope you all have an amazing week.....and Happy Father's Day to all those Father's out there this coming Sunday...have a great weekend!

Deadlines, Deadlines, Deadlines.....Yikes!

Hey everyone....how has your week been?  Mine has been okay.......I had 2 fo's!   That is because they had deadlines.  I forgot that I had to finish those wrist warmers for the Support Anja KAL......so I did those.




Then put the pedal to the metal with the Baby Blanket....the shower is this coming Saturday and my mom and dad are going to take the blanket with them....I finished this past Saturday!



The only other thing I really worked on was my Moondrip....I know it does not look like much progress...but the rounds are long.....lots of stitches.


Antonio had his last soccer game of the season.




I asked him what he wanted to eat afterwards......Burgers, Pizza or Sushi.....this Kid....Sushi was the answer


I had Jax all week and weekend.....Love this boy!


Paige went out with her friends Ashley and boyfriend, Kody



Jaime got his RV....the 2nd and 3rd pics are of my new knitting chairs....LOL!




Antonio got his Orange/Black Belt!


And I busted my thumbnail so bad it hurts and I am a HUGE cry baby!



And that is all I have.....I hope the next few weeks are not too boring with only Moondrip being the main focus of my attention.

Have a great week everyone!
