has it been a month already?!

Seriously i don't know how i let it happen. I love blogs, reading others, seeing what everyone is up to and updating mine. But some how i just don't get around to it. I think some of it has to do with Ravelry, some with Facebook, and some with the fact that i am so busy lately.

If your not on ravelry then you haven't seen some of my recently finished objects....

But before that let me tease you with a picture of cheesecake! I made it for my church. They had an auction to raise money for the youth group! Oh i found the recipe here! I love it, the only additional thing is that when it is done i turn off the oven and open the door, for about an hour, then i let it cool at room temp on a rack then i put it in the fridge.

ok so i made....

a swiffer cover:

my own design... if you can call it that...

I just CO 25sts and knit for 62 garter stitch ridges. then bound off and seamed up the sides.

a hat for the yarn shop:

a sample for a class i'm going to teach.

a sweater for Chloe:

The Weasly Sweater from Charmed Knits

a baby for Chloe:

Basic Doll, from Toys to Knit

Leah is now mad because "I want the dolly with yewllow haor, and not bown, i don't yike bown"

I've come to the conclusion that i can't please everyone.

a sweater for a friend who just had a baby along with a hat that i forgot to take a pic of:

It is an Elizabeth Zimmerman pattern, Modular Tomten Jacket. This was my first EZ pattern and I LOVE it.... need to make more for my kids! So cute and easy!!! I have the pattern in The Opinionated Knitter

Chloe modeling it... i know she is almost 2... but i wanted Stephanie to be able to have him wear it in a few months... it being big on him now with the cuffs turned up and then being able to wear it next year too!

a soaker for another friend who had a baby(both friends had them on the same day)

Pattern found on Ravelry...

the curly purly soaker

*OH which by the way... If i ever have another baby i want to cloth diaper... because these are too stinkin' cute! and i got it done in one day!

and i have been having raw stinky fun cleaning some Romney fleece! See all the yellowish lanolin?! This fiber is really white! I have 2 fleece down and 2 to go! Thanks to my friend Paulette, she came over the other day and helped a bunch!

oh and i'm knitting some socks.... yes for SAM KAL.... I am test knitting a pattern for my sister! I am loving it and hoping that i'll have it finished by 12 o-clock on the 30th! I have more accomplished than whats pictured.... but not too much more.

Oh so homeschooling is going well.... We are using Five in a Row, and Reading Made Easy.... more on that subject for another day...

knit happy!
