One year…….

It has been a year ago today that I got the shock of my life. And guess what I am still here and I didn’t fall  apart. It amazes me how strong you become when someone tells you that there is a problem with you or a loved one. If you would have asked me last year  Could you live with cancer and get through it and still live your life and take care of your family everyday I would have said Hell no I would fall to pieces and Joe would have to put me back together. But that didn’t happen. It just amazes me what you are capable of when you are put to the test.  I am so proud of the way my family has handle all of this they all are so strong and amazing I don’t know what I would do without any of them.

Sorry I just had to get that out of my system. Tomorrow I will have knitting updates and Bonnie tagged me so I’ll have that tomorrow. Have a great night and Happy knitting


Merry Christmas

Last night

I had a Cub Scout meeting and we went swimming for part of the boy’s badge requirements this was good I was able to get Little Dudes teachers scarf done for today’s Christmas party  It is made from Colinette Mohair and Colinette Giotto in the Pharaoh I used size 19 and knit it in stockinette I am not sure how long it is, it goes down way past the picture. When we got home I after dinner I got ready to bake and bake I did!!

First we started with chocolate fudge and peanut butter fudge 3 lbs. of each

Thin I made 2 different kinds of chocolate chip cookies  75 cookies total yummy!!

It was a fun night! I have 2 of the 3 scarves for my friends daughters done the last one should be done by this afternoon. Then I can try to get the socks finished.  Have a great day and If I don’t post again have a very Merry Christmas!!

Wanna see my new niece or nephew…

Go here and take a peek  at tater!

We can’t wait until he/she gets here! My sister in law is convinced that it is a girl but they don’t want to know.  So what is an Aunt that knits to do??? I was digging through some of my patterns the other day and found a Debbie Bliss book that I forgot I had and it’s got the pattern for the ABCs blanket so that is what I am making. So it can be used by either boy or girl. Now for the color.Hmmmm… I have time ! 🙂

I made 2 out of 3 scarves yesterday for a lady who bought yarn and handed me a bag of Red Heart and asked me to knit them for her daughters for christmas, I said sure why not so I have to get the last one done by Friday  which I am hoping that I will get it done tonight so I can get the last scarf done for the nurses and hopefully finish a pair of socks. But all this has to be done by Friday, because I have my next round of chemo on Friday morning and there won’t be much knitting going on after that. So my hands need to fly!!!! I have to go and get ready to get my boys from school Happy knitting!!

 Rico and his mp3 player and accessories

 Chan Man and his Nintendo DS

 Jakechecking out all his goodies I kept getting the back of his head he would open his gifts so I could see his face.

  Joe and his new robe

 This is what Joe got me and I also got a new coffee pot!!!!

And this is what was left after all was said and done  

I did get some more knitting done this week yes it is more scarves…… I love big needles!! So here ya go!


I think I have all my nurses taken care of now so I can move on.  I am not doing anything for the rest of the day I am going to sit in my chair and knit. Have a great weekend!!! Happy knitting!

The day of 2 scarves

 While the boys were swimming I made this drop stitch scarf for another one of my oncology nurses  I used 2 different ribbon yarns. I am trying to use up some of my stash it’s getting too big!! The second one I made I started while they were swimming and just finished about an hour ago it’s this one

 This one is 3 different yarns I have one more scarf to make for my nurses and then I will be done. They are flying by I am using size 17 needles so it does go fast! 

In the job front I got it but I am not sure if I want to do hair or if I want to do something else. So who knows. I just know that I need to do something I am getting tired of staying at home!! So I am not sure what I am going to do. For now I am just going to keep on knitting!! On to the next project! Happy knitting!
