Blankets in July!!!!

I think we have all heard of the Christmas in July saying....well, for me it is Blankets in July.  I know, I is too hot to be working on blankets....and you are right...but my boss and his wife are expecting a baby girl in I got some new yarn and had to get started.  I am about 1/2 way done with the I hope I am about 1/2 way done with the blanket....LOL!

Then, Paige broke her toe last Monday......

And she is frustrated with her work....

So I thought a finished blanket would cheer her I finished the big blanket for Paige...this thing is over 8 feet tall.  Jaime is holding it above his head with arms stretched out and I still had a few more rows to do after this picture.  I had Antonio all weekend and he loves it...let me snap a picture of him with him pretending like he is sleeping.

Those are my blankets in July!

Now, I have one more stash enhancement....I got a new Bags By Awesomegrannie bag....I put my Salacious shawl in it....I love this bag!

What else did I work on this week?  My July Socks....I got both heels done!  I tried to switch to DPN's (because I like to try them every once in a while and see if I like them) but my love for DPN's was not back to magic loop for me.

and my Spire.....I am still behind according to my chart I made.  I think I will just redo the chart and instead of doing 812 stitches a day, I will bump it up to whatever is needed to still finish by end of August.

Well, that is all I have.....I had a very exhausting weekend with Antonio....I usually walk about 5,000 to 7,000 a day....when I had Antonio, my fitbit says 13,301 steps Friday, 13,700 steps Saturday, and 15,586 steps yesterday (that is actually a record for me for one day!)....but it was worth every min.....seems I wore him out too!

Have a great week everyone.....Here is a beautiful handmade card I got from a friend, Brigit, for helping her with a KAL....I Love it!

Here is a great picture that was shared by my friend Pauline in a Ravelry group...I want a mailbox like this!

I love these nails!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting everyone!
