lord of the rings anyone?! That scary little voice pops into my head every once in a while... It seemed fitting. My computer if back!!! Woo hoo! I'm so excited. i can post again and read everyone's blogs... I'm sorry for not keeping up on all of your blogs, i felt bad spending more that half an hour on my parents blog. i will be trying to catch up and see what ya'll have been up to.
Ok well let me see. I have a lot of things that happened this past month or so, but i don't want to bombard you with too much info all at once so I'll post a little bit every day.
I told hubby to not expect the house to be anywhere near spotless these next few days, or weeks who am i kidding it wont be clean for at least a month.*grin* he said that he noticed that the house was generally cleaner since the computer was broke. i just hope he doesn't have a new standard of me now:)
I have a few FO's. First of all i finished my first pair of socks ever and i love them. i want all my socks to be hand knit... If only i had the time.
aren't they lovely, i tried to make identical twins, i think they are pretty close. No, that's not all my yarn, i wish*grin* i worked at a yarn show and my socks were on display. Just some eye candy.
I also made a hat for gabe, he loves it! he was always putting leah's on and its lavender with ruffles... This just not right. So feeling guilty i decided i needed to make him one. i do like making hats they knit up quickly. We went to an apple orchard/ pumpkin farm, they are the only pictures i have of him in the hat. i like the hat because it covers all of his ears, and i don't care if it doesn't match.
*i finished a surprise knit and will show you pictures when the giftee receives it.
These next items were a wedding gift. i did them last minute, but they went very quick. Last year i made 42 of them for gifts to family and friends. Never again. Seaming was the worst part.
I do love them though:)
*Alright by now i just can't seem to stop, so i will continue with all the pictures.*
I never showed a picture of Leah in her dress. I love it and it was worth all the time i put into it and even working on size 2 needles for that large of a project.
The pictures on the right are the first pictures i took of her in it. The last was taken at a wedding we attended.
speaking of leah she is getting so big now:
She is crawling and pulling herself up to a stand, she even kind of walks along the sofa. She got her first tooth a few weeks ago and loves biting the spoon while I'm feeding her:) I can't believe so much time has passed since having her come into out lives. I need to love on gabe too, i can't leave him out. he is talking more and getting tall. Poor little guy has a super tiny waist and he has to wear 24m pants, a lot of the 2T fall down to his knees. i should knit him a belt. Here is a picture of him at his uncle trevors soccer game(almost a month ago, while it was still warm).
What a boy, he was covering himself in dirt.
Now for the best part, i received two gifts in one week.
The first was from my sp5, it was a thank you gift from Diane. What a sweetie.
She sent some cotton chenille so i can make some face cloths, a little flower stick-it note pad, and some super cool knitting note cards(which I've always secretly wanted). Also she made a beautiful stamped card. Thanks so much Diane! Your too kind.
Secondly i received my first gift from my SP6!!! i was so excited to open it. i love getting anything in the mail, but even more when its knitting related!
She sent me a super sweet package. She apologized for not getting it out sooner, but i myself know how that goes, i didn't think it was late at all. She put together a few lace sock patterns for me and two skeins of pink sock yarn! Included was a pattern for baby lace socks, now leah and i can match! Also there was a very soft ball of baby alpaca brush, so So so soft! And i almost forgot to mention the chocolate, yummy yummy, it didn't even last 24 hours*grin* I let gabe help me eat some of the other candy, only a little bit, sorry to say but I'm a bit selfish when it comes to sweets!
Wow sorry about all of that, i probably even forgot a few things. Its just good to get it out of my system. I think this might be my longest post ever, and the one with the most pictures....
I really should be going, i work in the morning
Happy knitting to all!
