Happy Halloween!!

Carving

Jack O' Lantern HappyFrankensmiley Halloween!! Tonight is the big night! The Ninja Turtle, Creepy Skeleton and Zombie Hunter get to go trick or treating! Trick O' Treater I love halloween. I hope that I am feeling good enough to go with them. I am liking these smiley’s. So many cute ones to choose from.
On the knitting front I frogged my mother in laws scarf and started over. I didn’t like the way the pattern was going. So I tried another one. So far this is what I have done. Cast on……
40 st. k rows 1-3 row 4 k4,* yo, k2 tog*, 4times,k7, repeat k4, yo, k2 tog 3 times k3.
Row 5 and odd numbered rows p.
I like the way this one is coming out. So this is what I am going to stick with for this one. I frogged the garter stitch shawl too. I know all that work. But I left it in the chair the other day and someone sat in the chair and pulled the needle out so I tried to fix it and dropped so many stitches that I could not pick up so I figured I would just start over on bigger needles that way I could get it done quicker. That is all for now! I hope everyone has a great halloween!! Costume

So Cute!!

I was getting ready to go to bed and I checked my email one last time and guess what I saw….. The most adorable puppy in the world!! That is my buddy Will and his dad Ben in the background. They went to the Columbus Zoo tonight for Boo in the Zoo. I thought I would share! I can’t believe how big he is getting! Now for some sleep!!

New Buttons!

I made some new buttons tonight I got bored! Now that I know how to make them I can’t stop making them! If you want one made I will do it! It is so addicting! Tell me what you think of them there on the side bar!! Happy weekend knitting!!

FO!! and Started!

Today I got some knitting done! I finished off my secret project. It’s not really a secret anymore oh well! All it needs is fringe, and then it is done. It got a little out of shape during knitting so I blocked it. I started Amanda’s camo hat tonight ear flaps are fun! I also learned how to knit a sock on one circular needle today! I am so excited I am going to wait until after I get some other things done.

Cheer up yarn!


I got some cheer up yarn! I spent some of my birthday money I didn’t get a whole lot but enough to put a little smile on my face. I think after I get some of my projects done I am going to make myself something! Imagine that! Joe got my a ball winder for my birthday but it hasn’t come in yet I am so excited! I hate winding yarn by hand! I would have the kids do it but them I would have a big ball of knots! My first secret project is almost done! I have to get it done by Nov. 9th then I have to finish my Christmas gifts!! I haven’t started on a few of them so from here on out it is nothing but knitting for me! If anyone knows how to add another side bar on your blog, I would love to know how! I have more buttons to put up and have no where to put them!! I can’t believe I forgot to put this on too! I can’t remember who made it but it’s 100% merino wool and beautiful!! The doctor appt. went ok I have to get more tests and another long week I don’t know how much more of this I can take!! So friday yet another ultrasound and more blood work then have to wait till tuesday for the results and what is going to be done!

Doctor Day

So today is doctor day, I get to go to the oncoligist this morning. I want to go but then again I don’t want t o go because I don’t want to hear what he has to say. I am just glad that I don’t have to go alone! My sister in law is taking the day off work to take me. Hopefully he’ll give me good news and tell me when they are taking this thing out of me!! Please excuse my nervous chatter!
