Goodbye October!

 WOW....I think I only got one post in last month and the month is gone!  Not that that is too strange this year as there are several months I only got one post in...but I will try to do better....I was just surprised how quickly October flew by!

Antonio turned 11 in October!  and Darlene finshed his wallaby for him and he had a birthday party at Dave and Busters!






I knitted a couple of hats for Trentons soon to be here baby...her name is Ava!



Then I made Shyla a slouchy hat....in black of course!


I got some yarn to make Peyton a hat.....her team colors are maroon and white....oh, and her color guard and band team is going to STATE!  They are so awesome and I am so proud of her and happy for her!



I also got new bag from Elizabeth....it is one of her Holiday bags!



So why not put the new hat in the new bag!



I got an MKAL kit from the amazing Louise Roberts to do her MKAL that started 10/7/22

Here is is so far (this is about 1/2 way through clue 3):




 I started a new sweater with some of Louise's Granola Base yarn...this yarn is so wonderful!


I got my October yarn for my blanket...and finished it in October:






I saw my sister recently and a pair of socks I made her need darning....so I dug through my scraps (used yarn) to find the color I used for her heels and toes




That is all I have....have a great week





Happy Happy Happy knitting!

It's October!

 Can you believe it is already October...the last qtr of the year!


My cousin and his husband (both from Germany) were in the USA for 4 weeks doing a USA tour and they ended in Texas....I had never met my cousin (or his husband) in person and it was a delight to hang out with them for about a week.

This is Marius (my cousin) on the jetskii

Sven and Marius at LaFogata


The whole family...from Left to Right....Jim, Sven, Me, Janice, Dad, Mom, Paige, Antonio, Kody and Marius!

My foster Dog was ADOPTED! I  am so happy for her, but I miss her so much!  I knew I would miss her...but I didi not realize I would miss her sooooooo much!  They renamed her Luna (from Blue, but sometimes call her Luna Blue).


Luna sleeping on my shoulder


Luna Sleeping on Floor


Luna going to meet her soon to be parents


Last day of Luna in my bed the morning of her adoption


Speaking of Luna....there is one skein of yarn she go into for the 2nd time....but this time she really did a number on it and I have not tried to untangle it....it is attached to one of my half and half triangle shawls


Here is is after Luna got into it once but I rewound it and put it by my pumpkin spice latte



Here is after Luna got to it the 2nd time...she really was loving up on that yarn!



I started a Cowl that Darlene wants to make


I also made a hat with yarn that Melissa gifted me last year for Christmas



There is a mystery KAL starting this coming Friday with Biscotte Yarns....and these are my colors...I hope they get here before Friday.



I finished my September Blanket (In September with one day to spare) and my October yarn is shipping today



Lastly....I started some socks with yarn I got in 2018.  I know I should be pullingout my circular sock machine, but I am really enjoying the hand knit process right now....so I am just gonna go with it.



Have a great week everyone.....




Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
