The FIVE Blankets....and some more blanket news!

 Hey are you?  I have only worked on blankets lately......I have been a bit 'down' and trying to get some pep in my step.....

Here are the five blankets....the top of the crochet blankets was suppposed to be the neutral blanket, the colorway is called nutmeg nibbles, so I thought it would be 'brown', but it is coming out more mauve, so it looks more like a girl blanket...SMH

And speaking of blankets....Jimmy Beans Wool has given some teasers on next years blanket clubs....I was really hoping they would be ugly since I am so far behind.....but they are not.  Plus, they are really playing on my fomo with a brand new base.

I got my October Shawl Yarn.....

Paige finally announced her pregnancy with Kody on Social Media....which I was able to share on my social media pages.....

My step son came over for dinner last week (I got to meet his amazing girlfriend and I should have snapped a pic...but I totally forgot)....anyway, I made risotto for him (this is my family's verison of risotto, not the fancy stuff at restaurants) and when Paige heard, she wanted to come by to get some and traded tortilla soup with me.....I had it for lunch the next day and it was delicious

My nephew and girlfriend will forecver be the face of the Longhorns....this is the 2nd or 3rd time they have shows up on the official Texas Longhorns social media accounts....they are famous!

I got a beautiful picture of my granddaughter, Celeste, from her....I love it!  Can you beleive she will be 15 in a couple of weeks!!!

In the midst of buying a bunch of different yarn for my niece's cardigan, I ended up with a very large store credit amount to Four Purls Yarn Store in Winter Haven, Florida....It has recently become one of my favorite stores to shop at (they have an awesome online store in addition to a physical store)....they sell a TON of Emma's yarn (which I also have a slight addition to).  Well, I used some of that credit to get the Emmas Advent calendar....I bought this advent last year in the fingering weight, and this year I got it in the DK weight.....

Lastly, I have to share pics of one of my big is of him with a huge toy (that he loves) and one is of him sleeping (he was actually snoring) in his favorite spot of the house....the window in Antonio's room

That is all I have.....I hope you all have a great week (sorry I was a couple of days late posting this week).

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
