Dish Rag Tag and other nonsense...

I received the box and knitted like crazy to get the rag done and sent to Shannon. It isn't perfect but will have to do. Sorry, Shannon! Maria sent me some nice goodies. Thank you, Maria!

I have been up all night *Bryson* need I say more! The kids have school tomorrow then Shellis (Bryson's mom) goes to her internship. Benton has to go to work afterwards so I stayed up with the little man - it seems like he has inherited our allergies I just hope he doesn't get asthma. So while "we" were up I finished my sunflower box and sewed up a jack pillow (which I need to take another picture of). Bryson was very helpful with the paints while I was stencilling! And after I took pictures I noticed a scratch so I will have to fix that. I don't know if it was him or me ;o) There are better pictures if you click on the flicker pics on the right.

I am trying to get a few projects done so I can knit a hat starting Monday. Several of us in Shirley's Knitting Group are going to do it and it should be fun. I have never done one and this one has cables yikes! Wish me luck!

I've been tagged!

Well my turn has come to knit in the Dish Rag Tag. I got a message from Maria that I had been tagged! Now I am waiting for the box to arrive and knit as fast as I can. I bet it doesn't arrive until Monday but you never know. I will be watching for the mailman...hope he doesn't think I am stalking him LOL

Just checking in...

I haven't updated in awhile. I am waiting my turn for the DRT (dish rag tag). I am a little anxious as I did hurt my thumb and wrist (long story - me being klutzy) but I CAN knit only it is slow going so I envision myself staying up all night to get it done ;o)

DH and I made a trip to Bethel (near Hannibal, MO) to a sheep festival - not much there in way of yarn and I didn't but a thing if you were a spinner you would probably have enjoyed yourself. It was nice to get away...on the way there we saw this in the road:

At first we thought it was wild turkeys but NO...

Vultures!!!! Yuck!

Ok, so that WAS gross. On to something more pleasant here is a couple current pictures of my grandson, Bryson (he will be 10 months next week). It is the frst time he had an ear of corn and at first he didn't know what to think...

I think he likes it :o)

I will try to get a couple pictures of the grand girls while they are here this weekend. Off to check email and then work on some knitting...
