Update on Sock #2

I’m really beginning to hate this stretchy sock yarn! I don’t think I’m nearly as bad at knitting in the round on dpns as the laddering on these socks seems to show – in fact someone mentioned to me that they noticed that problem with this yarn too. That made me feel at least a […]

Happy Halloween!

It’s felt like about a week’s worth of spookiness and treats over here this year, as due to schedules we’ve had kids dressing up for three days in a row now. Becca’s preschool party was on Thursday (since she doesn’t go to school on Fridays), and thankfully this year she was healthy and good to […]

Best Friends… Forever

When I was a kid, I had a ‘best friend’. Her name was Jane, and we met each other in preschool. I still can vaguely remember the day when we were driving home after school and realized that Jane’s car was right in front of us. To our glad surprise, we discovered that she lived […]

Off for the weekend…

I have to apologize – I pretty much took an unanticipated (but much needed) blogging break this week. There’s just been so much going on that my head’s been spinning, and I just needed to take some time to get some other things figured out. I’ll be gone all weekend as well – the girls […]

Fall family fun

Alliteration aside, we have managed to have some really good fun together as a family this fall. Last weekend was our annual trip to the pumpkin patch with our friends Carlos and Cheryl and their two boys. If you haven’t been reading here very long, you may not know that their oldest son, DJ, and […]

All about hats

Some of the very first projects that I worked on after I first started knitting were hats. After squares and scarves, anyway. They were my initial foray into knitting in the round, and last fall I proudly knit each of my girls a hat to wear during the winter. The first hat that I made […]

Wow did soccer season fly by this year…

I can’t believe that we’re already in the last week of soccer for the fall season – and I’m woefully behind in updating on how it’s been going this year. I know – you’re all devastated…   But no fear – here’s an update, complete with photos of course. Because I can’t seem to sit […]

And… we have a sock!

Only almost exactly a year after I first began working on it… It was my first try at knitting on dpns and I have to say that after a year, I haven’t gotten much better at the whole laddering issue. I try to pull the first couple of stitches as tight as I can, but […]
