Happy Birthday Darlene!

Hey are you?  You may have noticed I have not done much lately.....and I am late posting....that is all because it was Darlene's birthday yesterday and I was crazy busy working on her birthday present!

16 days to knit 1131 yards....fingering weight yarn sweater....I think I was crazy when I decided to do this!

This picture is pre blocking.....I gave the sweater to Darlene today (I did not see her yesterday) and she will wear it tomorrow so hopefully I can get a better picture of her wearing it!

I have lots of other stuff....some random and some knitting related.

I did a swatch class....called Swatch Scholar.

And I won the prize!

At least I think I won....I have not yet heard from her and I have messaged her...we will see, maybe another Carrie R did the swatch challenge....LOL!

I got some new pom poms.  You put a button on the inside of your hat and then attach with elastic.  These were much more affordable than the big 8" ones I recently got...but not quite the same quality....but they will do....they are a little smaller too....about 6".

A great friend of mine, Melissa B, sent me some awesome yarn with pom is the perfect color.  I let her borrow something of mine, and she sent me this as a thanks....she is too sweet.  Thank you Melissa!!!

A tree at my parents house fell

And they have already had it chopped up into firewood....they do not even have a wood burning fireplace....LOL!

I did some meal prep, Antonio did dishes and I had to share a picture of my beautiful Paige.....

So, I am working on a baby blanket for a baby due in February and the shower is Feb 1…..well, that baby wanted to be present for her shower and was born the 20th…Her name is Collins Emory Campbell.....weighing 5 lbs, 14 ounces, and 19 inches long……I need to get a move on with the blanket!

Then, I have a picture of what my dogs look like when I am leaving for work…..they probably do this all day

Lastly, a friend of mine sent this picture of a wrap she is I want to make it with the exact same yarn.....heaven help me!

Have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
