Happy Turkey Week!

Hey everyone!  How are you?  I am sorry I am late a day with my blog post, but I figure we all have a busy week this week.  Just 2 more days till Thanksgiving so let me say

I really have not done a lot of knitting or crocheting lately.....I know...that is sad....so let me share other crazy things in my life......

First, my baby Jackson....aka, Jax...snuggling in my bed:

Then.....Jax's friends are in trouble...I came home Monday to this disaster (they had this yarn inside and outside....via doggie door)

So half way wound up
 Now totally wound up

And here is Antonio being the dog whisperer in my home with Kayta and Jax

Celeste is 11......she turned 11 last Friday.  Here she is with my parents after her Volleyball game last Wednesday.

Jaime and I went to a friend's home over the weekend to shoot guns....it was fun

Then, my traditional Christmas gift came in from Darlene...this may only be the 3rd year, but it is how traditions start and she knows how much I love this advent calendar!  Thank you Darlene!

As for Knitting...I did finish the socks for Thanksgiving...not my greatest picture but my yarn room is a bit of a disaster lately and I could not immediately find my sock blockers.

Darlene is in a hat mood....so what does that mean?  That means I am in a hat mood.....

The first pattern is called Arrows Abound

The second pattern is called Myra

Well.....that is really all I have....Have a great week and Thanksgiving!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

10 days to turkey day!

Hey everyone!  How are you?  I am okay......it is just 10 days away till Thanksgiving...are you ready?  I am fortunate enough to not have to do 'everything' for the big day, just some amazing mashed potatoes and show up at my aunts house....yes, I have it easy, but it is one of my favorite holidays (along with Christmas).....so I cannot wait!!

I am making some socks for one of the boys that comes to our thanksgiving celebration....if you are a regular follower, you know I already made him one pair and they were too small, so here is the 2nd pair....both feet just need heels added.

I also pulled out Graces socks to work on......

Speaking of Grace....here is my beauty queen with her friend Shelby:

Darlene finished Paige's wallaby and it looks amazing on her

I am still working on the one I am making her......I know, I suck.....my mojo has been super low lately....I have no clue what is up with that......so the above is all I have in the knitting/crocheting aspect...but if you wanna know my other shenanigans.....read on.

Jax still has friends coming over....Kayta top left, puppy (Chuck) top right, and Jax on the bottom.

One of these three got a hold of one of my MadelineTosh sock in Antique colorway.....GRRRRR

I went to Celeste's volleyball and got snuggles in with Alesso (Alessandro Liam, Celeste's brother)

Bizzle gave me my Chirstmas present early.....because she was SOOOOOOO excited to give it to me, she could not wait....and I LOVE IT!

I went to the deer lease with Jaime....and he forgot the keys to the RV...but he did shoot an Axis Doe

And Antonio had a soccer game on Saturday morning and one of the players invited us to IHOP after the game....so we went, and Antonio got a chocolate shake and was so excited

and then Antonio, Celeste and I went to see her dad aka my son, Erich......and she was supposed to be doing her presentation but she crashed!

Lastly, there was a blood red looking sunrise last week and I tried so hard to properly capture the color and just could not....sorry...but it was gorgeous...and imagine this with a beautiful blood red color.

Have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Good morning!  I hope y’all are warm!  It froze here I’m SA last night and man is it cold!!!!

First I want to thank all those veterans out there!  Thank you for your service!

This past week I went to the deer lease!  I was fun watching these sheep!

But it was pretty cold and too muddy to hunt so we came home and went to pluckers...my favorite fat girl restaurant!!

Antonio has a soccer game and we got some great pics!

What have I been knitting you ask?  Well socks and mitts!!

Darlene seems to be in a hat mood and I had just the yarn for a hat for Shyla....so I started it for her....Darlene will finish it....it’s a Scottish Tam that will be felled!

 Darlene finished a Wallaby for Paige and it looks great on me!  So maybe the one I’m making Paige will stay at my house?

I also started a crochet blanket to work on during these cold days we have been having lately....I love this pattern.  It’s called the Good Vibes Throw

That’s all I have!  Have a great week!!!

Happy happy happy knitting!
