Fall Fabulousness

Hi everyone....How are you?  I am fabulous....Darlene and I went to the SAFR Fall Retreat at Paradise Canyon and it was amazing!  I got lots of knitting done....but pretty much on just one Daddy's Ranger.  Here is the Ranger....two sleeves done at a little over 10" of the body!

I worked a little on a few other things, but not enough to even warrant a picture....I did a few rows on Naima, Knotted Chain Poncho, and my crochet blanket.....Darlene and I have decided we need to not let things sit for so long....we have no clue where we are in the pattern!  LOL!

I also have a few Stash Enhancements.....the October Leading Men Fiber Arts Colorway.....Trap Door...I love this color!

I got some yarn from Skein in the graphite colorway

And a super cute sweatshirt that says "Shut the Hell Up, I am counting!"

That is all the knitting stuff I have this week.....Celeste went to a party and got painted like a sugar skull and I love it!  She is so darling!

Well, that is really all I I will leave you with picture OVERLOAD of the Retreat this past weekend!

Have a great week everyone!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Happy Birthday Antonio!

Hi is Antonio's 6th Birthday....I cannot believe it....where does the time go?

Paige had his birthday party last night and he had a blast!  It was at Pump It Up....and Celeste and Cat came too, so I got to see them as well!  We all had a great time!

My parents recently went on a trip to NC with 3 of my dad's sisters.  They had a great time and they even sent me and my sister some great pics.

I got my dad the new iPhone 8 in a BOGO promotion and he loves you can see!

I went to the post office this past week to get a new passport (Darlene and I are going on a cruise to Cozumel in April, 2018) is the picture from my last passport, it expired 32 years ago:

Well, maybe I should talk a little about knitting....since this is a knitting blog.  I only worked on two things this week.....  One of those things is the Ranger Cardigan for my Daddy...I have both sleeves on the needles now and I hope to finish up both sleeves this week so I can work on the body this weekend and maybe attach it all (that is VERY wishful thinking)!

And, I finished my actually, during lunch.  I waited a little longer to post this blog post so I could show the socks finished :)

Can you believe that is all I have....maybe I am getting a little more and more monogamous each week....LOL!

I leave you with a beautiful sunrise from the view at my work, and Paige playing with Jazz at her new home....Oh, and Paige put the cutest picture of Antonio holding the keys to their new home on FB and said:

"I’m beyond blessed to announce that today I have officially closed on my first house. Everything I do is for this little soul right here. Welcome HOME baby boy 🔑🏠👩‍👦"

Have a great week everyone!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
