Better late than never...

Well I dyed some yarn on Friday and fell in love with the way it came out. I'm also loving the way it's knitting up! It reminds me of looking at a hillside dotted with trees changing color. :) It's very fall though and we are almost into winter. :-/ *sigh* I guess I'll just have to do some uber winter ones next. :D Finished pictures hopefully by the end of the week...

Feeling the sweater Love <3

I've loved knitting sweaters from the top down. It's wonderful. I like the increasing way more than decreasing. :) I made a sweater for Will in less than 24 hours! It was so fun. I love the yarn. It's a rather unusual acrylic. The repeats were so long. I've never worked with a yarn with that long of a repeat E.V.E.R.

It's loosely based on the Wonderful Wallaby pattern. ;) It's one of my favorite patterns to knit.

More knitting and pictures finally!

Will likes to take off with my camera card. :P I've lost three of them in the past month. >:( Live and learn and then put your camera away! So anyway all this to say that I've been knitting more but not uploading pictures. Now I actually have some pictures to show!

First up is a hat for me because I just have some bad hair days now that my hair is super short. The pattern is Odessa. :D

And a pair of knucks that finally fit! Measuring is good. :)

Now I'm going to start on a pair of longies and a sweater for will. I'm excited about the sweater. I got some really nice yarn!

Oh man...

What to say when you don't post much? Life is going great. We celebrated a 28th B'day for my hubby on Thursday. Mikey's is coming up on Wednesday! I find it hard to believe that he's going to be 9! I've been knitting like crazy but I don't have any pictures. It seems that Will enjoys walking off with my camera card and he's not giving it up. :-/

My birthday is coming soon too. :) I already actually know that I'm going to enjoy my birthday because it is on a Sunday. Not just any Sunday though. It happens to be the Sunday that Our Church does it's Christmas Broadcast so we will head down to church after dinner to watch it. ;)

Well I suppose that's all for right now. Hopefully I'll have some more fun and exciting news next time. Or at least some knitting pics. :P

They are such a joy sometimes... Take some of the good with some of the bad right? Well all of my close friends and family know that my youngest daughter was diagnosed with Aural Atresia in a mild form but it was enough to affect her hearing and speech. In May just before her birthday she had surgery to correct her ears. She has come a LONG way in such a short amount of time! Tonight, she not only carried a tune but I could understand most of what she was saying when she was singing. It's been fun watching her learn and listening to her talk finally! Here's a video I captured tonight of her singing a song she learned.
