time to knit...

After a non stop week of food, family and lots of fun, I'm finally able to show that I'm knitting. But first I'd like to thank the lovely Lolly for being such a wonderful host for the Socktober KAL. Although I have yet to finish my pair of socks. I've got one...


I was one the lucky winners of the Socktober goodies, and I was lucky enough to receive this beautiful skein of Mountain Colors yarn, perfect for another pair of socks, some lovely scented soap and a beautiful cooper bookmark.

I just love the pagoda detail. Thank you so much Lolly!

As for my knitting, I'm getting ready to start my second Socktober sock, but I've been a bit distracted my the Kristina bag. It's my first bit of multi stranded color work, and so far so good. but it's a bit wonky in places. Hopefully It'll all even out once it's felted.


Unfortunately I wasn't able to finish the Gryffindor scarf in time for the new Harry Potter movie, but I was able to knit before the movie started. The kids and I loved this movie and we're quite ready for Book 7 and Movie 5. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long.

Anyway I hope you have a wonderful week...Happy Knitting!

being thankful...

For the blessings bestowed upon our home and on our family,
For all the days we've had together and all the days to come,

For the joys and sorrows that bind us ever closer,

For the trials we've overcome,

And for teaching us that we can do no great things,

Only small things with great love...

Wishing you all a safe and wonderful holiday!
Happy Thanksgiving!

busy busy busy

I'm so busy I can't think straight. Extra hours at work are starting to kill me and I only wish that there were more hours in the day so I can sleep, (and knit),

Oh and there's something else keeping me busy...

she's definitely a blue-collared dog...
