Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

 Hey it is December 20th and I wanted to do one last update before the end of the year!

I bought some yarn with great intentions to make my entire family socks for Christmas.....

But I need to learn my machine better as I had some tension issues

So here is my first pair of socks from my machine and it was a tube where I hand knit the ribbing and added afterthought heels and toes.

I got some madeline tosh ASAP yarn for hats...

and some amazing yarn presents from friends

I started a baby blanket for my neighbor's first grandchild

I also started some socks with the Noro Yarn I showed you last blog post

The SNB girls had their annual Christmas party at Elizabeth's house....I made ornaments and it was a great glad I went!

I had a flat tire last Wednesday when I got up to go to my 6 am workout....but I drove to a gas station for air, and then a tire shop once they were open.

I have to share a picture of my gorgeous niece (on the left) and her amazing orange boots!  LOVE!!

That is pretty much all I have.....I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and Happy New Year!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Happy December and first day to open those Adent Calendars!

 Hey everyone....I know, I know...I need to get better about posting here.  I am sorry!  It is already December and I have a TON of pics to share with you.

It is time to open those adent calendars!  I got the David's Tea calendar from Darlene (she gets it for me every year because she is amazing)!

Celeste turned 13 (can you believe I am the grandmother of a teenager?) and we went to an Escape room and then Dave and Busters...she went to Colorado with her family, and Yvette (her mother) is expecting amazing family is growing!

As for knitting, I recently started a Mae sweater for Shyla

I started a musselburgh for Trenton

I started dishcloths for Darlene (she liked the ones from Friendsgiving so much)!

I started a hat just because I loved the pattern (and had just purchsed the yarn).

I have been plugging away at the stained glass blanket (and got my nails done)

I got the last color for the blanket recently (I still need the last ivory color).

I also ordered next year's Monthly Blanket kit!

I bought some yarn for socks......this was all Elizabeth's fault!

I got some yarn from Eat Sleep Knit's Black Friday sale...this is Malabrigo Rios in the Medusa Colorway

I finished one of the hats and the dishcloths

I was not feeling well for Thanksgiving and there were some newborns at Thanksgiving so I stayed home (and sent my parents with the mashed potatoes):

Paige surprised Bizzle with a trip to see the Dallas Cowboys (Bizz's favorite team):

and Paige got me this great wall hanging for my bedroom....I love it!

That is all I have.....have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
