To all of my blog followers, I am deeply sorry I have been such a bad blogger the last 6 months. I have to admit, I just have not been feeling the words. I also feel like this past year has just flown by. Starting with spring and Tanner graduating, after that event it all just became a whirlwind, baseball, training for races, Clint fishing and camping, Tanner going to college, school, work, new clients… even my Friday Night Knitting group almost forgot who I was. Well, the last month or so life has settled down and I am back into the swing of things… Following is a photo journal of what I have been doing over the last few months. By the way, not in any order what so ever, that would be way to organized…
Transatlantic (pattern by West Knits). I entered this shawl into the fair - I received a red ribbon!
You have seen these mittens but I am so happy about my blue ribbon!
OK - Last brag. Blue ribbon on my ear flap hat that accidentally became fulled!
Cute little sweater that I made for our friend Melody's baby. This was made from handspun!
This is a qiviut smokering that I am knitting. I happened upon one of the traditional patterns. I am very excited about this one!
I dropped my boy (and nephew) off at college! I did pretty good holding tears back. Swollowing them is painful.
I went to Oregon with Cathy. We attended the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival. We took classes everyday. We sampled good food. We got lost looking for yarn. We drank beer!
and we visited with Alpaca's with fun hairdo's.
and on the flight home I finished the Spring Ribbed Cardigan I had been working on...
I got so excited about finishing one sweater I started another... darn those sleeves are still waiting to be knit!
I made a lot of these for people to give as gifts!
Elliot is a master trumpeter and the jazz band at Mears Middle School is AWESOME!
I knit a lot of sheep!
After months of being patient, Brendan got a new car! Well a new car to him anyway. Meet Ms. Alice... Or blubaru.
Current project on the needles (many unfinished - but the most current cast on). This is called Ziggity and I AM IN LOVE WITH IT!
The last few notes on what has been going on… we have all new flooring in the house, laminate wood in almost all of the areas, new carpet in the TV room and boys bedrooms. Our master and office didn’t get touched. New paint on three of our BIG walls. Hosted Thanksgiving for 15. Christmas parties and celebrating are done and now my husband and I are enjoying a whole week off of work, AT THE SAME TIME! We are doing NOTHING and loving it! Tanner is home from school for the month between semesters and the big boys are both working full time. Elliot is keeping his Dad and I company.
HAPPY NEW YEARS MY BLOGGER FRIENDS! I will post as I finish some of these projects in the new year!
