Merry Christmas!

 Hello the time I post again, Christmas will have come and gone, so let me say to you now....I hope you have a fabulous Christmas!

This week's post will kind of be all over the place.....first, all I have worked on this week is Grace's cardigan.  I got one sleeve done and it was too small, so now I have done another sleeve (larger) and am currently working on 2nd (technically the 3rd) sleeve.....and need to join.....oh, and my sweet flower wants me giving her loving instead of knitting....LOL!

I also got 4 of the 5 christmas ornaments I need for my neighbors and my trainer.

I got new slippers from Darlene for Christmas....I love them, she spoils me!

I snagged a beautiful picture of Paige and her family off her Instagram :). I think Antonio actually looks like Paige in this picture!

At the Christmas Party last week, Tami brought these caramels....I had to buy more...they are delicious!

I also did some meal prepping that I have not done in a while.....this was really good (I impressed myself):

That is all I have.....Have a great week and a Very Merry Christmas!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Just hear those sleigh bells ringing......

 Yes ladies and is getting to be that time of year.  I am sorry I did not post last week, I was trying to hunker down with all my Christmas knitting.  I think this year I might have actually bit off more than I can chew.....Yikes!

I just finished Darlene's present.....but it needs to be blocked and buttons added.

and I not only have the amazing advent tea calendar from Darlene, she made me an amazing Wallaby!  I. must looks amazing on me!

Here are some Christmassy stitch stoppers I got, along with some doggy ones.

My knitting friends and I had our Christmast party yesterday at Elizabeth's house....It was fabulous!

I gave some presents and also got some amazing presents.....the last picture has a blue yarn is a tape cute, right?  And an amazing wristlet with card holder and some cute pens and yummy goodies!  I have amazing friends!

Well, I know this is short, but I gotta get to my niece's cardigan along with some knitted ornaments.....Have a great week everyone!!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Can you believe.....

 Can you believe it is almost the end of the year!!!!  Like it will be December in 2 days!

I am ashamed to say I still do not have a lot of knitting to share and I really need to get my rear in gear....I have so many things I want to finish for Christmas!

I will give you my Family's Thanksgiving picture dump at the end of the post.

First, I got my amazing Advent Calendar from Darlene!!! This is my favorite gift every year!

I got my November Blanket Yarn

I got the pattern for the 2023 advent with Suburban Stitcher, but I am not sure if I am going to do this one, or the Anthology Throw.

The only thing I have knit on in a week (Someone seriously come kick my A$$) is one of Darlene's Christmas Presents

Here is my Thanksgiving Pic Dump

That is all I have.....have a great week!

Its A......And Happy Thanksgiving!

We had the gender reveal this past Sunday.....Bizzle and Sam did a great job hostessing it at Paige's house.

Here is the outcome......its a......

GIRL!  I am so excited for Paige and Kody!

Paige and Bizz went to lunch last week and I had to steal the pic from social media....aren't my girls gorgeous!!

Well, I am embarassed to say I really have not done much knitting since the last time I posted here.....I have just been in a funk.....but I really need someone to kick my arse into gear because I have a lot of Christmas knitting I need to get done!

Here are the only 4 things I worked on.....and being that I worked on 4 things....very little progress has been made on each :(

Darlene got me my annual tea advent calendar that I love with is this year's mug.  I do not have the calendar yet, but the mug came in yesterday.

My SNB group had Friendsgiving this past Saturday and this is the "utility" item that I made (when they said utility item, I had no clue what they meant, so I just went with a decor item).  Darlene stole this gnome (we play white elephant) to take home.

And I stole this pot holder trivet set that was made by Darlene to bring home :)

Earlier in the year, I purchased 2 yarn advent calendar that were delivered yesterday....

The Hogwarts one from Yarn Cafe Creations:

And the Pink Christmas from Suburban Stitcher

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

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
