I was reading my blog feed when I came across this 6x6 meme on Stitches of Violet. This lovely lady make amazing sweaters in what seems like no time at all. I thought it was interesting and off to flickr I went.

rules: go to your 6th folder and pick the 6th picture and post it. Hope you remember the details and tag 5 others. (Do not worry I am not going to tag anyone, feel free to tag yourself)

So here is mine.

Where they get it from

A picture of Hubby back during baseball season this year. I had brought my camera and was trying to get "nice and normal" pictures of everyone. Yeah that does not happen in this family. All the kiddies kept making funny faces. I tried to get a picture of Hubby and sure enough he made a face too! =)

I so love him!

Baby J socks

My dear friend at work has found out that she is having a girl!! When I need a pair of socks for November for Sock a month I thought of her. So I made a little pair of newborn socks. I used Knitpicks Essentials in "Meadow" on size 2 needles. It took only a few hours and these are the most adorable socks. I can not remember my kiddies feet being this small.

Today here in the US we are celebrating Thanksgiving. This year has been interesting to say the least but there are many things that I thankful for.

These 3 top the list.


Each are wearing the their hat that I made them for this winter. Skywalker's hat is made from my Sharkboy handspun and some black Swish super wash form Knitpicks. Buddah's is made from yarn I bought at Rhinebeck in 07. (same yarn I used on my hat from last year) Drama Girl wanted a red hat with black hearts. So she got a red Wool of the Andes hat with black swish hearts. All that is left to do for hers is to add the pom pom to the top.

and of course this guy, who know how to make me laugh.

I am thankful for my family, friends (online too!) and how well everything is in my life. For in the big picture it could be worse.

So to all of you I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.

It is a Girl!

Well one of them anyway. One of the 3 people I work with is about to have a girl (and my bet is we will not see here on Monday morning) Each time she has passed by me she jokingly said " Are you making booties?" Well the last time she said that I was making booties for her little girl. Of course the next day when I handed them to here she laughed. She had no idea what I was working on and at the stage I was at there was no way to tell what I was making. She loved them showed each of her classes and anyone she could stop in the hallway. She told me her hubby got all teary eyed when she showed them to him that night. She also bestowed the honor of bringing them to the hospital so her baby girl can wear them home.

there is a tube of Burt's Bees lip balm for sizing

Happy Belated Halloween and Yeah!!

Ok a happy belated Halloween everyone I hope you all got more treats the tricks. We did good here and got way way too much candy.

Yeah on I hope everyone who could have voted did. There was record turn out this election day and that is such a good sign.
I woke my son up this morning telling him to remember today because today was a turning point in American history. I do not really go into politics here (or religion) but I have my views (trust me I am very opinionated ) and one of the most is to use your rights (like voting)

Just to prove I do still knit, not as much as before though I am filling in for someone at work while she takes a month leave and do not have as much time as before.

drama girls mitts

I made Drama Girl fingerless mitts. Really quick knit (she has very petite hands) and to break up the boredom of ribbing I cabled them.
