So this is Fifty-One!

 Hey yall.....I have made it to another birthday....this is fifty-one....and while I know that is 'young', but do I feel old some days....but I digress.  

I had a fabulous birthday hanging out with Antonio....I was supposed to go bowling with Paige, Kody and Antonio....but Paige went out with the girls the night before to the rodeo and was not feeling her I decided to postpone till this week...I am actually more excited that she had fun with Sam and Bizz!  Here are my girls:

This week Antonio wanted to make MORE strawberries so we got hydroponic ones....these are huge!

He also got these ridiculously hot cheese puffs!

And we finished one puzzle

I ordered another puzzle that is going to look like least I hope it makes it to me.  I have ordered this puzzle once already and it was delivered to Massachusetts...go figure!

I finished Paige's socks

I also pulled out an OLD wip (a blanket for Paige) where I make 20 squares...these squares have tons of cables so it take a lot of thinking power...but maybe one day I will have it done

I also worked on my christmas yarn socks....I have never made socks with this long a cuff, but I want to use ALL this yarn and show the gradient so I am going with a super long cuff!

I got some yarn in to make those slippers Paulette made for Tone and I....

Oh, and since it was my birthday....I went to an amazing dinner last night, where I managed to not get a single parents got me another pair of Hoka Shoes (Paige got me my first pair last year and I love them).

Erich and Devinne, Erich's girlfriend, got me some tea and the greatest notebook

And Paige is taking me bowling this week (hopefully I remember to get a picture)!  It was a fabulous birthday!  Thank you for all the amazing messages and well wishes!

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

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Foster Doggie Picture Overload

 Hey everyone!  I have to be honest......I really have not been knitting much this past week!

However,  I have been busy with the dogs.....I am pretty much enjoying my new addition, Flower...and while these pictures are of assured that ALL my dogs are getting MORE than enough this post is going to have some Flower doggie picture overload.

I do have 3 stash enhancements.

I got my February Yarn for my Quilty Monthly Pattern

Then.....I decided to do the other colorway as well....maybe just a faded garter stitch pattern

So this is January color for the other color blanket

And then here is the February Color for the other color blanket

So here is February together

My friend in Canada, Paulette, sent me and Antonio some house slippers that she made with a Phentex Yarn and they are SOOOOOO comfy.  I have ordered some of this yarn so I can try to make some of these slippers too!  Thank you Paulette!!!

Antonio and I made some Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

and we did a lot of puzzling this passt weekend.  The Spiderman is a 500 piece puzzle (which is a little more challenging) and the Iron Man is a 300 peice puzzle (which is a little easier for us).

and I did finish one cowl this past week

And now for your Flower doggie picture overload....Have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Happy Valentine's Day

 Hey everyone! How are you?  I am well.  Happy Valentine's Day to you!

I am a day late to my schedule of posting but I have good reason.  I decided to foster a dog again.  I miss Blue every day....and it was very rewarding to know I had a hand in saving her I went to the shelter on Sunday and I picked a dog and got to bring her home yesterday after she was spayed.  Now....she is pretty thin.....I just wanna warn you for the 2nd picture....but she is as sweet as can be...and if there is one thing I can is fatten up a dog (or myself)!  So I am sure she will be healthier in no time!  Her name is Flower!

I finished a February Dishcloth with The Kitchen Sink Shop...the pattern is called The Linzer Cookie.

I finished the pair of socks I was working on and started the 2nd one for Paige....the color in the completed pair is off....look at last weeks blog to see a truer color.

Here is Paige's 2nd sock

I pulled two cowls I started last year I want to finish and get off my is done, one will get done.

Erich's girlfriend, Devinne, came for a visit (isn't she the cutest?  Well, her and Paige!)

and I worked on the socks I started with new yarn from Christmas

That is all I have....and a bunch of dog memes/cartoons!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

It is February!

 Well, it is February and I am still trying to blog once a week.

Let's jump into it.

I got some new yarn for socks.....these are for Kim...Erich's girlfriend's Ranch owner....she loves turquoise!

I love the speckles in the yarn

One sock is done

I also started a sock for a lime green

I bit the bullet and got the other Jimmy Beans Wool Blanket kit....still trying to decide if I make a blanket or something else with the yarn

I got yarn for Darlene's Next year Birthday present already......she wants another boxy cape....I got Rios in the Sand Storm Colorway

I have been in a puzzle Antonio and I did this puzzle....I bought seven more puzzles, so get ready to see more puzzles in our future

I finished the scrappy striber sweater for me, but it still needs to be blocked.

I saw a salad on social media that I wanted to eat so I finally got the ingredients and ate was soooooo good!

That is all I have....except for my cutie pie dogs.  Jackson got the bed dirty but he was too cute to get mad at.....

Have a great week.....

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
