Yarn is fingering weight superwash merino. Dyed by me. Soft and warm. It is for a teacher who is retiring this spring after 30+ plus years of teaching 4,5,6 graders.

Bad Blogger no cookie!

Wow I have been a bad blogger this year! Never did get photos of the gifts I knit this Christmas. Oh well.

At the moment I have no new knitting started. I have been working on the 2 Neville sock (I knit the 1st this past summer). I think New Years calls for a new and just for me project. Time to stash dive for something to cast on tonight.

The kids had a great Christmas. Santa brought a bunch of board games and we have been enjoying them. Tonight I think its Clue and Sorry. Funny that my kids love these so much. I got the same thing when I was their age. Hubby has been teaching Bunky and Bobo to play chess. Pretty cute I must say.

I hope 2011 finds you and yours safe, well and happy! I will do my best to be a better blogger in 2011

start em young

That's Bunky and Bobo pulling the spike tape from Hubby's last show. We took them to strike and they had a blast peeling tape off the floor. They had a great time running around the theatre and chatting with the cast. Bunky has already asked when she can do a show with Daddy. How many Mom's have a 6 year old who says things like "didn't my Dad kill you?" to people they hardly know? By the way did I mention the fact that the kids sat through the first 3 acts of Julius Ceasar? Not bad for 10 and 6. Not bad at all...

My Blue Hevan

Done! Pattern is The Corrugator by Paula Smith. The yarn is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock med in My Blue Haven. Knit on a US 5 over 33 sts. I love it! This baby is mine. I made it to wear with my Saturday shirt at work. Used all but a tiny bit of the skein. Might not do another sock yarn scarf for a while this one took forever! In other knitting news I have cast on the 2nd sleeve on Mom's sweater. I should make some good progress today. I also finished up the last teacher gift this week so that's a load off right there. Next on the gift knitting list is Hubby's new hat. (He lost the one I made him last year.) and GAL's gift. She asked for a shawl. I think I have just the thing.
Time to cast on!

Wow I have really let the blog get away from me. Anyhoo, life has been chugging along here. I have not had as much knitting time but I have managed to finish a few gifts and the first sleeve of Moms sweater. As most of the knitting I have done is gifts I can't show you. Sorry.

In sad knitting news I had to rip out my Juno scarf. somehow I must have snagged it and broke the yarn, big mess, very sad. I don't want to talk about it.

In better news Hubby's show opens this week so next week I can make it to knitting! This has been a tough one. He got home at 2 this morning looking grim. They have a preview Wednesday night, open Thursday. It always comes together in the end, the magic of live theatre.

Better go cast on that 2nd sleeve.
