Very fun to knit if you haven’t made one yet you should!! Now I get to make more hats!! I still have 2 otn’s and I hope that I can get them done this weekend. Then I am planning on starting a new baby blanket this on won’t be a boring knit at all I found a cable blanket pattern that is just to cute I can’t pass it up!
My brother and Lisa both commented yesterday and I have to reply Lisa, Joe says send Josie up he will be more than happy to take her off your hands and Scott, your nuts but that is why I love ya and the pictures Joe put on my computer and deleted them from the card so I will have to make you a cd of them and send them in the mail, if there are anymore pictures that you want let me know!! Ok so that is it I need some sleep! Have a good one!

I’m back!

After a long long week I am back and I have some energy! We had a really nice weekend my brother and Lisa came up and took the kids to the waterpark with Joe and they all had a great time I wanted to go but wasn’t feeling good so I stayed home. Yesterday I took them around to look for a place to get married and I think they liked the lighthouse in Marblehead. It was good to see them again. I pretty much slept after they left.
I did get some knitting done last week I have dropped 11 stitches on my clapotis and I am starting to run out of yarn 😦 That makes me made I thought I would have enough but of well I have to find a place online that sells it because my lys isn’t going to get any more in. If I would have know that I wouldn’t have bought it! Oh Well! I have also got a couple of hats done for Caps for a Cure I’ll take some pictures and post them in a couple of days. I have knit a little on the diagonal baby blanket but it gets a little boring so I haven’t been too excited to knit it. It must be done!
Happy Knitting!!! I hope everyone had a great weekend and has a great week!!

Happy St Patricks Day!

I get to go in for another round of chemo later today, so I thought I would update since I won’t be feeling well for about a week. I got a hat done last night and started another one today that is almost done. I used the Odessia pattern without the beads and it didn’t come out at all like it should and I was a little upset but I like the way it came out I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino so soft and warm. I am not sure what I did wrong but I still like it and that is all that matters right. The hat I started tonight is a k3,p2 rib with micro spun I should have it done in about an hour. I finally got around to taking a picture of clapotis as promised and so far so good I like the way it is coming out I have taken a break from it most of the week to get some hats done. There hasn’t been much going on this week just taking it easy! I hope that everyone has a great weekend I am going to be sleeping for a big part of it! Don’t forget to wear your green!!

What a weekend!

It was a fun weekend but a long weekend! I had a great time seeing everyone. Christopher made out like a bandit for his birthday!! It was so good to see him and my brother and my mom and dad! I finally got to meet my future sister in law and niece! Lisa is great and she has a great sense of humor, she has to to put up with my brother!! 🙂 Josie is just the cutest little thing! She had lots of fun with all the boys! We had a ball! I got home tonight and crashed it was so much fun to go but I will pay for it! I will probally sleep all day tomorrow! I didn’t get much knitting done this weekend I did knit a little on clapotis. I will be putting up a picture later this week. I hope that everyone had a great weekend! Happy knitting!!!

I got paid to knit! I made 2 hats for one of the moms at the kids school and she gave me $40. I thought that was a bit much for 2 hats, but hey now I can buy some more yarn!! 🙂 I also got 2 more orders for hats. Pretty cool!
I started another baby blanket today for a guy that Joe works with his wife is due in May and the baby shower is in 2 weeks so I thought I would make a quick one and I must say it is going rather fast. I also finally sat down and started that damn clapotis! I am almost through the second section and I finally have the hang of it! I hope! There is not much else going on here just trying to get things back to normal as much as possible! I did watch Harry Potter last night and now I am going to have to get started on the Weasley soon! Maybe even another scarf if I can ever finish the one I have started!! Happy Knitting!!!!!!!!!

A finished object and some yarn porn!

I actually got some knitting done this week! I finished Bekah’s blanket in time for my mother to take it home with her this last weekend, and I forgot to take a picture I know I suck! Maybe I can get a picture with Bekah and the blanket! I also finished one hat and started and frogged and started and frogged many ,many times my clapotis. Again I know I suck! I think I am just not in the mood to knit this yet but the yarn I bought for it oh I love it!! It was expensive but I don’t care! I got Schaefer Yarns Anne. It is so nice and soft to touch I just like feeling it! 🙂 I still have about 4 hats on the needles for Caps for a Cure. My next chemo is on St. Patricks Day so I am hoping to have those 4 plus a few more to take in! I did meet one lady there last visit she had just started losing her hair and was looking for ball caps and I suggested a knit one and she told me her favorite color and I told her that there would be one for her my next visit. I can’t believe how fast the time is going! I hopefully only have 3 more chemo sessions to go and then I am done!! Keep your fingers crossed! I can’t wait for tomorrow, Harry Potter comes out and I am getting 2 copies one for me and one for Christopher for his birthday! I know what I am watching tomorrow night! I know there is no way I can knit and watch so I will have to get some knitting in tomorrow afternoon!
I think that is enough rambling for now! Happy knitting!!!!

I can not wait to meet her! Sarah and Becca are both doing good. So I have to get he blanket finished for her since she has already here!
I get to go out of town next weekend! I am going to take the boys to my mom and dad’s for the weekend! Next Friday is Christophers Birthday he’ll be 9 years old! I can’t believe it I feel so old!! I am looking foward to getting away for a few days! This also means that I finally get to meet Lisa!
Well I hope that everyone in blog land is doing well and happy knitting!!!
