Proud member of the Knitterpudlians, a small but mighty group!
I finally got my box in the mail to the Warm Hands Network. I'd hoped to get more socks made, but the September 30th deadline was getting too close. Too many baby knits right now. A friend of mine had her baby boy yesterday, and Hub's has a cousin who is soon due. Here are pairs 10, 11, and 12 for the 52PPiii. Details here.
I am on the border of the baby blanket for the friend who had the baby boy yesterday. I hope to get it finished tonight. If not I'll take it to work tomorrow and try and finish it there. Pictures soon with any luck.
I was doing housework the other day, and the dogs had been raving around the house. They can run through the house in a circle, through the kitchen, living room, into the hall, and through the bathroom, so they do laps. (The bathroom has two doors, weird, I know. One to the hallway, one to the kitchen.) Anyhoo, I rounded the bathroom corner, and this is what I saw.
She had this in the hall, living room, and in the Oldest One's room. I'd noticed they had kicked the toilet paper, and it was over by the side door. Should have known this would happen to any that fell out. Maggie is super evil on toilet paper and paper towel. Of course she did this AFTER I vacuumed, so I had to get that out again. She's such a little bugger!
Y'know how eggs are always the same shape? Ever get one NOT the same shape? I don't remember ever getting one that wasn't egg-shaped, but I did in this box of eggs. It's right long and skinny, weird.
Have a good weekend! Any locals, I'll be working tomorrow if you want to visit.
Got nuttin' to show. I've been working on a baby blanket for a friend, just started the third square. I haven't taken any pictures yet. I am pondering on another baby blanket, too, for Hub's cousin who is expecting a girl soon. I was looking at this one, wanting to use maybe Patons Shetland Chunky so it's a quicker knit. I really wanted to use Butter (the name of the color!), but we only have four skeins, and I think I'll need five at least. So if I choose this pattern I'll have to go for Frosted Rose, I think. I had originally thought of making her the same blanket as the one I'm doing now, but I don't know if I want to do another just like it only different colors right away. I like the pattern, just think I'd like to do something different.
That's going to be it for now. I'm in a rotten mood and in a severe funk, so I don't want to pass it on.
None-the-less, Happy knitting!
Warning: Lots and lots of pictures!
There were different kinds of sawing competitions, both single person and double. I didn't get pictures of everything, I missed some of Sunday afternoon's stuff, and Saturday afternoon we had to scoot somewhere to get more propane. The Oldest One said that one of the ladies doing a chopping event with an axe had her handle split, and the axe cut her hand, she had to have first aid. Hope it wasn't too bad.
It's the most wonderful time of the year....
PPS They are home from school now, and they have a friend over who is the Littlest One's age. We'll see how long the rooms stay cleaned up.
