Dogs, Dogs, Dogs.......

Hi as your week?  Mine was was the last week of Fiesta.....Paige and Bizz went to NIOSA (Night In Old San Antonio) last Friday and had a great time.

I love these two.....but sometimes they drive me nuts......they got 2 more dogs......GRRRRRRR

Meet Chief and Princess

and speaking of parents brought Bella to Antonio's soccer game....she had a great time

I finally got Precious to the groomer!!!

Darlene got 2 new dogs too.....Cooper and Betty!

I did not really get a lot of knitting done....I was trying to not go too far on the test knit....I'm on chart D

plus, wanted to finish some mitts for the Support Anja KAL.

Jaime and I watched a movie and I could not work on the mitts or I worked a little on my daddy's vest and Grace's socks!

Well, that is all I have......hopefully more next week!

Have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Happy Belated Easter!

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a fabulous Easter!  I stole this picture from Jimmy Beans Wool.....I thought it was so cute.

My Easter was very uneventful.  Antonio did spend the night Saturday night, and Paige came to pick him up in the morning so he could go home and see what the Easter Bunny brought him.  I got the grands some chocolate bunnies and chocolate eggs

I also had Paige's all the dogs got treats in the morning and Jaz monopolized my lap!

I got some new yarn for me from Yarn Circus.....I saw a shawl done in this colorway and feel in I got some for matching socks.

I knit on my Vortex a little bit and got to a color change!

And I restarted those Taraxacum mitts in the Bussi colorway to support Anja:

The only other thing I worked on was the Moondrip test swoncho I told you about.....I changed up my colors one more time and Darlene and I are using the same colors.

That is all the knitting/yarny stuff I have for the week...but I do have some random pics from things that happened this week.

Antonio fell off a bike and scraped his knee

I found goldfish in the shape of Mickey Mouse....they are awesome!

and I mowed my yard and had my first rose of the Spring.  Now, I do not talk about this much....but my late husband planted this rose bush about 15-20 years ago....I have tried to kill this rose bush so many times mainly just because it is in the most awkard place (right on the fence line and by the AC unit) and sometimes over grows and gets to be too much to maintain...and I am not really a yard person.....however, it will not I have stopped trying to kill it.....on Tuesday I was mowing the yard and saw the the midst of mowing I snapped a pic and sent to Paige with no words.....I knew she would know what I was trying to tell her....and she made her day!

Well, that is all I have.  Have a great week everyone!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Crazy Test Knitting Preparation

Hey are you?  I am crazy.....but ya'll already knew that.  Last week Darlene spotted a test knit call on Instagram from Dragon Hoard Yarns.
So then I spent Sunday looking through my stash for yarn (the middle 2 colors are main color)

Any thoughts?  Suggestions?  I think the winner will be the 2nd picture.
Other than that.....I finished the crochet blanket....pretty much the only thing I worked on this past week:

I started a new double the baby size crochet blanket for Darlene to make Kagan.  This is a new to us yarn called Amore and it is 100% feels great!  Darlene usually likes me to get them started.....this is a new pattern for Darlene so once the additional colors that she ordered come in, I will show her how to do it.  It is a nice and relaxing crochet!

Antonio had a soccer game this past Saturday and they did amazing!

And I did some cleaning (excuse the mess).....Bruno does not like the vacuum.....he was gonna keep us all safe from it!

Well, that is really all I have.  I do not think we get the test knit first round instructions till Friday so this week I will work on my Vortex and my daddy's vest.  Have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
