Drum Roll Please....

They're done...they're finally done!! I'm wearing them on my feet right now. Presenting the finished Jaywalkers, Daaduudadaaa!! Man these socks were a pain in my ass, they would have been done ages ago if it wasn't for that daughter of mine, she pulled the sock off the needles twice on me. I have 2 more pairs to make, but if someone knows a lovely, more mindless pattern that will knit up quick (sometime before xmas) feel free to let me know. :-)

I do have Happy Feet now though, the socks are damn comfy, they look cool and these babies are mine (not being gifted to anyone). I just wanna dance all over in 'em!

Onto Christmas things (which is quickly approaching), Paisley and I went for a walk in the fog tonight (which really should have been snow) to mail all of our Christmas cards. I'm not too sure if I'm sending them out too early, but oh well I guess I'll be the first card on everyone's mantel (or where ever they put them). We have yet to decorate the house though, we're waiting until after Paisley's birthday on December 8th. It's kind of hard to believe that my baby's going to be 3 years old, she growing up too fast. She is super excited about her birthday because her cousin Lucas is coming and she doesn't get too see him very often (he's 9 months younger), so it should be a good time. December is always a crazy a month for us since everyone's birthday is right before Christmas (Paisley, Ron, Ron's sister Valerie and Grampa). It be interesting!

That's if for me, I've got to give a bath to a messy child and to bake brownies (perhaps before the bath??).

Night Away From Socks!

I thought that last night I would take the evening off of sock knitting! While I was hunting for a pattern that went MIA (and still can't find either) I came across some dollarstore yarn that someone gave me and decided to make a scarf for Paisley. The is the Cotton Candy Keyhole Scarf. I thought I would try the keyhole scarf since she loves wearing them but can't seem to keep them on (don't mind my uncooperative model, te he). The ball band didn't have a gauge or needle size so I went with 8mm needles, the yarn is really chunky.

As for the socks, I am finished on of the Broadripples, and have cast-on for the second sock but haven't made too much progress. The Jaywalkers would be finished by now but they are pretty much the same as my last post because a day later, Paisley ripped needles out of it on me. She was playing quitely on the floor and I was on the couch knitting away. She asked me to get something for her so I set my knitting down on the end table beside me. I was gone seconds and she was already on the couch and had my knitting in her hands, as soon as she saw me and I said something to her she ripped 2 of my needles out right in front of me. I was sooo pissed I didn't know what to do. Actually, I'm still really mad but it's getting better! I guess I'm going to have to get box and lock up my knitting everytime I leave it unattended!

Socks & Meet Bruce!

Just thought I would post my nearly finished jaywalkers and I also have one of the broadripple sock almost done! This is all that has be on my needles lately and there will be more to come because I think socks are going to make great Christmas presents this year. :-)

Also, I would like for you to meet a new friend of ours, Bruce the Hamster. We got him about a week and a 1/2 ago for Paisley because she was missing her kitty Deuce who went to live at Gramma's house. We sure miss Deuce, but he is doing great at Rhonda's and seems to be much happier then he was here. The story that goes along with Bruce is that we were going to the pet store just to "look" and see how much it would cost to buy a hamster and as we were walking across the pretty much bare parking lot we see something go flying. Ron goes to pick it up and it appears to be something red...he found a $50 dollar bill. So, home we go with a hamster, a habitrail mansion and some other fun stuff for him and one happy kid. Paisley also chose his name on the way home, who would have though?? A hamster named Bruce.

(Cute too bad she closed her eyes though!) ------------------------->

A Big Post

Like a few other blogs that I have been reading, my Socktoberfest is extending into November! I'm currently working on my last Jaywalker, they're almost finished and I'm almost more than half done one of the Broadripple socks that I am making for a Christmas gift. After these socks are finished, I will be casting on for another pair of Jaywalkers and that will be another Christmas gift down. The only thing about my Jays that I was disappointed in was that the colours pooled half way through, hopefullyt he 2nd sock does the same!!

I know it's a little late for Halloween pictures, but I just had to post some of my little Princess. I would have posted them sooner but I had an incrediably shitty week last week, so please excuse my tardiness.:-) Paisley made out like a bandit (check out the loot) and this Halloween it just goes to show that even sheep like to have a good time.....

Just lovely, my little "princess" just ripped out every needle in my broadripple sock. Does anyone mind if I use some profanity right now?? FFFFFF%%$$&&&KKKKKK!!!!!

Knitting but no Blogging

I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm still here. I've been knitting, but I just haven't been feeling up to blogging too much lately! I'm almost done my Jaywalker socks and I've also started the broadripple socks again on smaller needles. I do need to post some pictures soon though, so stayed tuned either tonight or tomorrow for some pictures of my little Halloweener and some sock stuff! Sorry for my lack of posts, there has been alot going on at home but I should be back soon. Stay tuned!!! :-)
