Finished the tie for the skirt.  Wish I could get into Flickr so I could upload these to Ravelry!



Dusting off the blog!

It’s been well over a month since I’ve posted here!  Pardon the dust bunnies!!  However, in the midst of everything I’ve been knitting – really I have!!

Here is my proof:


The bunny is stuffed and just needs a face.  I’d skip it, but faceless dolls really bother a couple of my kids.  So, I have the thread and just need to do it!

I also started on for my little friend, Miss E.  My goal is to have both of them done by Easter.



Thursday night – during Lost – I started this skirt for JGirl.  I think it took me about 5 hours all together.  I still need to make a crochet chain from the accent yarn to use a tie.  Details can be found on my Ravelry page (Knitnmom).


I also have the yarn to make a Jayne hat for my brother’s graduation gift! 🙂

Due to JGirl’s upcoming arrival I’ve put Secret of the Stole ii into hibernation.  And, I have some simple socks I’m working on – should be a nice purse project!

Picture Time!

First DAY Knit

I’ve been getting together in the evenings with some friends to knit for about 3 years. We used to meet at a local book store, but now we meet at the library. Today was our first DAY knit meeting. We met at my house and had a great turn out! Steph had a very rare day off and joined us. Trina (w A & E), Ruth & Margaret will hopefully be regulars. We were missing Robin – hopefully she’ll be able to join us in the future. If YOU live in the area, email me and I’ll be sure you know how to join us! 🙂

Here are some pics from our time together:

Knitting in the new year

After Christmas I had an urge to finish things.  So far all I have left is to block Baby Susannah’s dress (well, and mail it out) and my boxers.  I’m making good progress on my boxers…and it feels good to be making progress.

I’m not so in love with the ‘pretty in pink’ scarf I’ve been working on.  Maybe it’s that I’m anxious to make some socks.  I’m really excited about the Firestarter Socks – have you seen them?  Oh my – they are so cool!

I’ve got yarn to make some socks for my Dad and stepmom.  And, I want to make my brother a hat – but I want to make a certain one and I don’t have the yarn.  So, I’m trying to decide if I want to just knit him anything … nah, I won’t be happy with it.  I need to wait until I can get the yarn.  Not sure that he reads this – but on the off chance that he does…no more talk about that.

My mom’s birthday is coming too – I’d like to make her something.

I just realized this really a post about nothing! LOL  Oh well…it gave me a chance to think some things through! 😉

I have tried and failed to finish two secret lace knit alongs! The second was not really my fault, but when I realized I had unsubbed accidently – I just let it go!

But I’m trying again! I might not knit along – so much depends on what happens to our family in the new year! Here is the link if you want to join me!
