I actually have pictures

Of something finished!!! So I showed a picture of a greenish blob last time, well it's done and blocked and I actually took a picture of me wearing it! And since the weather is all over the place I have actually used it and will be able to again. Yarn is a one of a kind from my dearest friend Karin dyer extraordinaire and owner of The Periwinkle Sheep and the pattern is called Nurmilintu. (Sorry I can't link)

This past month has seen nothing but sickness in my house. The past two weeks being the worst of it. Some really nasty virus had the nerve to move in. I'm talking 102-104+ fevers and congestion and tummy issues too. All doctors said if they didn't know we already had the flu (that was January's fun) they would think we had the flu. Ugh. Anyway finally we're all better. Nature is helping with 60s (and today topped at 72) so every thing has been cleaned and windows opened to air every thing out. Hopefully that's it as far as sickness is concern. Just the virus alone caused 4.5 weeks of missed school combined. So like I said 72 today. That equaled outside time including a walk to the post office

What's a knitter to do

When your Mj lost his gloves and the stores have freaking swim ware out and it's only January? Make mittens of course. No pattern just made them up as I went along :) love doing that!

A sweater and some

So Mj's sweater was finished, soaked, blocked and dried. Today it finally decided not to rain. So on it went and onto the deck we went.

As a plus Kris was with me so of course I had to include her. Yes they are wearing the same pants. I made Mj a pair for his birthday - he loves the fuzzyness. 

The Murph has fallen in love with my down blanket. Don't blame her it's been nasty cold and rainy of late. Bubba boy has found his spot under Ang's bed were the heat vent blows the warm air. He only leaves to eat and do his business. 
And lastly my spider plant is flowering. A- this is the first time I have ever seen this. B- I didn't even know that they had flowers and C-  I guess it didn't get the memo it's January

One Plus

Of having the flu. Lots of knitting time. What a week. Tuesday Dillon, Wednesday Ang, Mj and by Wednesday night Hubby and I. Kris was and so far (knock on wood) that escaped it.
Most of us are on the upswing in various degrees. Yeah it's been fun.
Anyway here's Mj's sweater. I am now on the yoke and about an inch-ish away from the first decrease round.
I know it's not a great picture (it was cloudy and snowing today so not great light) and all the stitches are scrunched onto the needle. I want to finish the sweater this weekend. Hopefully

My sweet little boy

It does not seem like five years ago that you came into this world. How I want to slow time just a little.

Happy Birthday my little buddy boo
