Days 48-66

Wow I was quite behind schedule....

Day 66 (march 6th) The start of my March socks... I need to get going on them!

Day 65 (march 5th) Gabe grabbed a few items to dress up his"kitty". I thought it was really cute!

Day 64 (march 4th) I've finished knitting a sweater I've had in my UFO pile for 2 years... but now I need to "sew in any yarn ends." HA! ANY....there are thousands of them!!! Its going to take me forever....

Day 63 (march 3rd)
Today was pajama day at school, he loved it! Afterwards he wanted me to take his picture... this is his cool face. I really don't know where he got it.

Day 62 (march 2nd)
This is the inside of the sleeve I knit, I just thought it was interesting, don't mind all those ends, gerrr.

Day 61 (march 1st) I did it! I finished my socks around 10ish pm!

Day 60 (Feb 29th) This is my view for the day.... finishing my socks for the SAM5 KAL. I'm really not sure if I can finish them but I'm going to try! I'm currently decreasing for the gussets and just have to finish the foot and toe..... I think I can, I think I can, I think I can... There is a venison stew in the crock pot for dinner and the kids are eating lunch.... here I go, wish me luck... I'm going to need it!

Day 59 (Feb 28th) I took this fabric home from my grandmas. She already had some squares cut out. I (some day) want to make a quilt with it... I think that is what she had planned with it. Not that it is the prettiest but I like it, and will always think of my grandma when I see it!

Day 58 (Feb 27th) This is the Noro silk garden that I purchased from my sister's LYS(day 55, I think). I plan on making the famous "noro scarf" The two balls on the left are #87, the top right is #8 and the bottom right is #211. I had the hardest time picking colors and hope they go well together in the end.

Day 57 (Feb 26th) This is actually a cool plastic basket that I scored from my grandma, well one of two. After doing mountains of laundry the socks ended up in it.... and so did Chloe. Who needs toys?!

Day 56 (Feb 25th) Just an hour after arriving home on sunday I started to feel sick... I got the flu, just like the rest of the family did. Monday night I realized that I hadn't taken a picture, so this is what I got. My kids feet, while they were curled up next to me on the couch. Shortly afterwards I did some nail trimming :O)

Day 55(Feb 24th)
On the way back home... I was able to knit on a few things, one of them being my February Charade socks!

Day 54(Feb 24th) Coffee! These are the coffee mugs I drank out of the second half of the week, my sister got them from Poland.

Day 53(Feb 24th) This was taken after going kitting at my sister (starknits) LYS. Such a cute little shop! Lots of yummy yarn, I came home with some noro, silk garden!

Day 52(Feb 24th) I started the sleeves for my hoody... My goal is to finish this UFO in the next few weeks. I started this over 2 years ago... Its about time I finished it!

Day 51(Feb 24th)
My grandma's house, where we stayed for the first half of our trip. This was right before we left on Wednesday

Day 50(Feb 24th)
Joe loves old war stuff, so when we saw this he pulled over and went to sit on it. I just had to take a few pictures and told him that I would use it as my picture of the day.

Day 49(Feb 24th) Chloe hit the jack pot at grandma's house. She had fun playing with these and banging them around. What more could a little girl ask for?!

Day 48(Feb 24th) We drove about half way on Saturday and ended up in Ohio in a hotel, the kids thought it was the coolest thing! Gabe kept jumping back and fourth on the beds. I let him go to town because I knew we'd be in the van for another 8 hours that day... It really is the simple things that put a smile on a kids face:O)

Oh your grandma's house looks so cute in that picture. The kids must have been good to sit in the car for that long too. Glad to hear that your feeling better.

Sorry you got sick. That's no fun. I loved your sock/road trip picture. I had to figure out where you were. Looks like in Chicago, about to come north to WI. I learned there is a freeway now, between Chicago and St. Louis! LOL! My family drove down there in the 70's and what I remember was a 2-lane road, with tall cornstalks on either side, for miles and miles and miles!

My Elisa's nest tote, still needs handles, but I'm finishing up the other UFOs, so should be getting to it soon!
