Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all you father's out there........Here I am with my daddy last night!

This week was a great week knitting wise for me......I finished Brinley's top....well, as much as I could.  Darlene is going to need to put it on Brinley and measure out the straps to kitchener stitch.

I worked on my Jimmy Beans Blanket Club Blanket too.....I have made it thru April's to do May and then June was more of the main once I get the May first wedge done, I have to wail till July.

I got in yarn for my halter top and I cast it on.

I did my own nails the other is a street color kit that I bought over a year ago.  I really like it.

Im still eating healthy and exercising....even though my body is super sore lately....I might need a break....

I ordered the cutest shirt the other day....I can't wait for it to get here.

This is my baby almost every morning after I wake up....he goes and and gets in my spot on the bed....I think he is hoping I will come back to bed and cuddle with him....LOL!

That is all I've got.....Have a great week everyone.

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Knitting is not a crime!

Hey everyone.....How are you?  I hope all is well with you.....My title this week has to do with some accessories.....Have you heard of Succaplokki?  Well, they are an etsy shop from Finland and their tag line is Knitting is not a Crime......look at this adorable gauge set!

So how has your week been?  Mine has been okay....It has been HOT here in TX.....this past Tuesday was 107 degrees......

I got to see the girls again this past Wednesday and we (including Antonio) went for a walk (and then to eat our burned calories at Baskin Robbins).

And speaking of walking.....I glanced at my "Weekly Summary" on my watch today and almost 41 miles in one week......that just shocks me as I know how sedentary I used to be.

I am still eating fairly healthy (I do cheat here and there)

I finished all the dishcloths/potholders!

Then I thought I would pull out my blanket club and do a little work on it (The June shipment is supposed to be delivered today).

Then, Darlene decided to make a Halter Top/Bra Top for I told her I would look in stash and make one too (I love to knit the same thing Darlene is knitting) so she sent me the yarn (Berroco Modern Cotton.....YUM!) and I said I could make one for Brinley....this pink is perfect for Brinley.....  the pattern is Get It Girl Bra Top

I love it so much, I ordered some extra pink to make a top for me to go with my pj bottoms and some red to go with another PJ bottom....

Well, that is all I have this week....hopefully I will have a finished halter top to show you next week.

Have a great week everyone!  and Happy Father's Day to all you Father's out there!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!!

Happy Graduation Class of 2020!

Hey everyone.....This year's graduation class is not like any other...but my amazing Nephew is graduating with or without Covid...LOL.  He had his ceremony with students 6 feet apart.  I got to watch online from my yarn room/office in my pj's as it streamed over the internet.  My sister and the family got to be there in person.  Congrats Sean!  I am so proud of you!!!

Antonio started Golf Camp this week.....I love this kid!

He also got a pet snake from aunt Bizz......his name is Draco....yes, from Harry Potter!

I got a surprise visit from my girls this past was wonderful!  I took them to Paige's house to see Paige too!

I got a new Bag from Bags By Awesome is the new tote....this thing holds 7 skeins of yarn and the project (just beginning) and is the cutest bag ever!  If you have been debating on this new tote....get it!

I went to Chicken N Pickle this past Sunday (Yesterday) with Paige, Kody, Antonio, Bizzle, and Tara....I did not take a single picture but I had an amazing time..we all played pickle ball (new to us all) and had a great time.......then we went out to eat at 54th street bar and was fabulous! I snagged this pic from Tara's instagram.

Im still trying to eat as healthy as possible...but my weight is not fact, it is going up.  So yesterday I did a super intense workout with Ped and plan on seeing Ped every Sunday and then still doing my 6 day a week workouts from Nathan.

Oh, and Paige and I swapped yoga mats....since I love orange and elephants!

and finally knitting....Yes, I know this is a knitting blog....I finished all my sister's pot holders/dishcloths....then made one for my mom and one for Darlene...I still need to make the 2nd for my mom and that is the plan this week and hopefully you won't have to  keep seeing my dishcloths...LOL!

I leave you with a picture of my dork Jax, and his head hanging off the treadmill (this is where he likes to sleep) and a reminder to be brave....I am trying to be more brave and say how I feel, find my passion and never apologize....these things may sound easy, but for me, they are I need a reminder every once in a while!

Have a great week everyone

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
