Hat Mania

Been busily working on holiday gifts and lots of hats.

And a pair of fingerless mitts for Mr. K in not girl colors!! Dark purple hat is a slouchy beret. Looks like I need to move buttons on the green hat & cream colored hats! Welp, will do that tomorrow before shipped off.

~~Lesson learned~~don't sew on buttons past bedtime, :)

Photoless Post

Working on holiday presents so no photos. My ise scarf is blocking. Just have to get goodies and will mail it out beginning of next week. Holiday presents will go out week after the scarf, except for mystery afghans~~clues not done~~just released clue 8 then next week will reveal how it all goes together but I still have to do clue 6 (16 squares times 4). Last night I asked kiddos if they had made their lists for Santa and ARM said "Grammy, it is only November!" AA wants a skate board, NOT, he is only 3!!

Mom's Hat Dilemma

I finished hats for mom, she washed and dried first one which was wool. Made a new pink one in super wash wool so she can wash and dry.

Sleeping & looking innocent!
Yesterday, little monsters got into my "knitting/crochet" bag and instead of messing up yarn decided to eat the buttons on mom's pink hat!! I should have taken pic but~~~~~~~~

Because of button eating, there was a hole in hat soooo today I am making a new one!!!
Good thing they are fast and easy!!

The "monsters" after their haircut!!!!

Not me, I'm innocent. I hate grooming day!!!!

A New Hello

Mr. Swimmer says Hello!!

I basically abandoned this blog over a year ago. It was a rough year, lots of new decisions and changes, especially medically and so far 2010 has not been the best either. Hopefully since it was just Rosh Hashanah, the tides are turning favorably. I continued to craft when I could but did lose some mojo along the path~~~~yippee it has returned! I joined the Bernat Mystery Afghan Crochet Along BUT I AM NOT loving the yarn, Bernat's softee chunky is NOT soft so I will continue as I have the yarn and it will probably be gifted. I am also going to crochet the afghan in some "nice" chunky yarn.

In addition, I am participating in ISE9, I did participate in one further back but~~~~welp, after some very rough swaps, swore off of them for a while. I am looking forward to this one though and then others.

I will get some pics up soon of my crafting but until then here some of my cutie pies this summer, a highlight for sure!!
