Happy Easter & I ordered my looms!

Happy Easter everyone! I ordered my looms from Decor Accents today. I went with a 9 inch fine gauge sock loom, can't wait to try it and I also purchased the mini sock loom. I want to use this to make mini hats,socks and sweaters for my Christmas cards this year. Just thinking ahead! I am off to knitpicks now to order some sock yarn. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Baseball Rain Out Weekend

We had a tournament and two other games scheduled this weekend, lucky for me we live in the Northwest and it is raining, raining=canceled games! Don't take this the wrong way, I love watching my kids games, but since we got back from vacation and the time change we haven't been able to catch up on our sleep. So, this weekend is it! I found this quiz online, I love taking these and I plan to get some computer time in this weekend and order the fabulous sock loom from Isela and some sock yarn. I want that to be my summer projects maybe I can work on them at some baseball games? One eye on the ball one on the loom!??? Happy Easter everyone, enjoy a wonderful weekend with you family and friends!

I did it again!



Word of Warning, when you go to change the template in your blogger site, you HAVE to save it first, so you don't loose your links or anything extra you have added! I have done this again and lost them so I will be adding them along as I go. I had problems getting photos to load yesterday so I just closed it out and ta da when I did it today my template had changed.
On the Knitting front:
While on vacation I made a beach bag from the KK #2 booklet, I still need to crochet a handle for it. Last week, I finished a matching water bottle holder and beach towel bag made from the peaches and cream cotton thread. It came out really cute and I plan to donate it to our preschool's silent auction next month. It is our annual fundraiser where we have a dinner, and a silent and oral auction, it is a blast! I also have to dig out my embroidery machine and do a set of bath towels. It has been a VERY long time since I used it, I hope I remember how!

Back from Vacation





I am back from vacation! Disneyland and California's Adventures was a blast. I think I may have had more fun than the kids! It was a lot of driving, and compromising among all of us but we made it and have some wonderful memories. I was able to visit with my mom, brother and neice and also my brother in law, nephew and great neice from my ex's side. I want to post photos of the trip here and some of my latest knitting. I haven't had much time to rest up, I returned to work this week, found out I have strep throat, and started some projects to donate for the preschool auction. Also had our first baseball game. Nothing like being at home again! I plan to start posting on the groups I am in again soon, I have missed not staying in touch, also need to order one of those cool fine gauge sock looms from Isela! Have a great weekend!
