Yarn Along

Finally! The last sweater to be knit. Not finished, mind you. I have to compete two of them, but this one needs to be done so that my nephews can get their Christmas gifts. I made ties to go with them.

I know that this isnt the best picture, but it is the best my laptop can do. One of my children, who will remain anonymous due only to the fact that i dont know which child it was, has taken my camera without my permission and i cant find it. Yet.

I hope next week to show pictures of the table cloth i am knitting for next Christmas. I am so excited about it!!!

Every night when i get into bed i have the intention to get up and work out in the morning. But here is what usually happens: a child comes in my room between 2 and 4am. Once it is 4, i am usually awake enough to start my day. But really, who wants to start their day at 4 to educate, feed and otherwise entertain 3 children? So i end up falling back to sleep around 5-6, then am a mess when i wake at 7:30- 8.

Today, i am going to get up, work out. Then this afternoon i will nap.

What would you do?

I truly need to sit and finish the posts i have started. but i am really busy right now. just look at we got:

I'm busy teaching sewing! She is very very excited!!! She is sewing a rag quilt. My mom gave her all the fabric and batting all precut, and the machine was one of my mom's students! it doesnt need a peddle foot. no really! there is a button you press to make it go, and you press it again to make it stop. How easy is that for a little girl!!

Yarn Along

I am really loving these Yarn Alongs. I feel very excited to see what others are doing! And it keeps me blogging. I try hard to blog... and i have many ideas rolling around in my head. I cant seem to get them out. But this! this i can do! I can show what i am working on, and be inspired at the same time!

This is a scarf that is my go to project. I love it! The wool is hand spun and hand painted. I got it at a large guild sale. When it is done, it will be for my patient husband... i just hope i have enough of the wool!

I love the colours!
