Great Use of Time

We headed up to my Mother-in-laws for a family wedding on Saturday.
Which meant 2 1/2 hours in the car Saturday and again coming home
on Sunday. To make the best use of my time I downloaded 4 discs
of a book on cd onto my ipod.
I was able to knit and listen to my book both ways!
YEAH for technology.
I love being able to read and knit at the same time.

Disappointment in Knitting

Okay this is a lame image to use.
But it is how I feel.
I had a knitting disappointment.
Because of it I did not blog and am doing a very very simple scarf.
I put the cute little baby sweater together and it looks horrible!
Can't give it to anyone - even if the baby can't complain.
I talked to a friend about how to maybe salvage the project.
But I am so bummed by it -- it looked great when it was just 4 pieces,
I just haven't been able to post anything.
no photos till I fix it -- if it is fixable.
I will try to fix it.
My backup plan is that the parents will never know there was an
attempted sweater and I will give them a cute yellow hat and booties.
And man you clamoring hordes of blog
commenter are relentless....
okay I am really just talking to Stacie here.

A Stressful Present

Here is the baby blanket I have been working on.
This was taken Saturday am.
I needed it done by 5pm that day.
So I knit as much as possible Saturday.
Here it is being given to the expectant parents.
Derek and Greta are due in early May.
We surprised them with a little baby shower on Saturday
They love the blanket - and hopefully so will their little girl.
It was a very stressful knitting weekend.
Now I have begun a cute little sweater for this
same much anticipated little girl.

Awww Poor Boy

Joe had the bottom wisdom teeth pulled yesterday.
Here he is napping with the
ice packs on.

He seems to be doing very good.
I got some knitting done at the doctor's office & while we watched
a movie later in the day.

Beautiful Sweater!!

Our Sweaters look great!
Kim the fit is wonderful!

I made mine a bit longer because I have a long waist.
Rosanna's sweater is navy blue - mine is called
Kentucky blue.
It is very soft and it fits great!
Rosanna is ready to start a red one for her mom.
I am back to the baby blanket because I need to get it done soon.

Sneak Peek

Here is a peek at the finished sweater.

Rosanna is going to wear her's today too -- I will get a picture of us in
our lovely sweaters!
