What Kind of Knitting Needle are you?

Take this quiz

Mine was super interesting. :D Hit the nail on the head. LOL.

You are bamboo.
Warm, cozy, and thoughtful, you take your time and enjoy how things feel, smell, and taste. You love the craft and beauty of traditional things, and you value the comfort and experience of knitting as much as the results. But while you are reveling in your warm cozies, don't get stuck. Warm is wonderful, but so is the whole wide world!

I have some yarn coming from a wonderful friend and I can't wait to see what she has sent me!

Newborn Fluffy Stuff

So I've really learned how to knit and I feel like my knitting has become pretty good. I decided I wanted to make something for the baby on the way and a friend gave me some wonderful Malabrigo Merino yarn.

The Results?

Beautiful huh? I'm really happy with the way it came out. :) It's so soft too! I think it will be a wonderful set for the baby.

I do need to make some more for my baby still in diapers. I have another friend that's sending me more yarn and then I can go to town on some more sets. :D

Also I'm helping in a fundraising effort for the Breast Cancer 3-Day walk. We are helping Christine to reach her fundraising goal of $2,200. (You can find Christine's official fundraising page HERE) Christine's friend Shelley and I are donating a cloth diapering set as a drawing at my store.

Here's a sneek peak at what those look like:

It's really been a long time since I posted. LOL. I had actually forgotten my user name and password but evidently I remedied that situation. ;)

So what's new around these parts? Well, the two older ones are back in school and loving it! Cliff has a wonderful job working in a town about and hour away. It's a wonderful blessing but we are looking at moving a little closer. Baby #4 is in the oven baking! (Yep that's right I said another one!) We will be looking for him/her around V'day.

Well I have a stocking at Panda Pants to prepare for so I need go get off of here and get some work done. I'll try to update with pics of what I'm planning. ;)

Sugar Highs and Lows

Ah man you just have to love kids. It doesn't take much sugar to really get them going.

This was taken at a dear friends wedding two weekends ago. She had been given who knows how much punch and helped herself to some sugar cubes. :( She was so cute though and such a good girl though. She was of course ready for her usual 9 PM bed time so we didn't really get to stay too long at the wedding.

My friend has been through so much and I think it's wonderful that she has finally found someone that can make her happy and is willing to stick it out through the good and the bad for the rest of thier lives. :)

All of my kiddos went with us but I don't think I managed to catch a picture of my son. He was too busy with the other kids to stop for a picture.

Ah and now for the sugar low. After she finally crashed with proof on her shirt that she had some punch.

Shooting For the Stars!!

My wonderful Husband has been wanting a business that was "ours" so bad. Tonight we were visited by some friends who had a business opportunity for us. Come to find out it's a glorified online Amway. NO THANK YOU! I had however been a part of a company once that I loved and truely believe in. Their products have worked miracles for me. :) I didn't go very far with it last time simply because I had a very unsupportive husband. So tonight we took the plunge. Now I have another website to add to my collection! We will be selling herbal wellness products. :) Now I'm not going to go into all tonight but I have personally used these products and truly believe that they work and are excellent! Ok I will quit boring you with my little lectures and give you a link. Our New Business

Well I am busy preparing more cloth diapers for the Grand Reopening for Lily Pad Landing and also trying to get all of my current orders finished up and get my new stock ready for the Grand Opening of Panda Pants! Boy it's going to be a busy month!
