Not a square

It seems maybe just maybe I can move on to non square knitting. 

Sock yarn Carnaval. I know I posted it before but it such a happy colored yarn. 

A quick gift

My son's orchestra teacher is having a little girl. She is a really amazing teacher and it's a small way to say thank you for bringing out the best in my son

Maya Angelou

 "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

-from 2012 interview 

She was/is my favorite author. I loved reading all her work. It was sad to hear of her passing. I loved listening to her, she had this thing about her. I really don't know how to discribe it. Calmness. Wisdom. She was amazing.

My Friday Night

Some quality time with my wheel while watching Doctor Who. I am spinning a bullseye bump from Loop. I used a gift certificate that a certain Aunty gave me for my birthday. This stuff is amazing just like everything I have gotten from Loop. This is my first bullseye and I want all the bullseyes. That's how much I love them. 

Now I have to get back to The Doctor. I have 59 episodes to catch up on before August 16.( new season start)

Square update

Here is the latest bunch of squares 

It actually kinda of fun to make these. They are also a trip down memory lane. That big green one is from Morehouse farms. I bought a kit to make a dragon scarf for my oldest at my first Rhinebeck.

I had some company

On today's run. It was so nice out too. Mj had fun too, saying hi to every bird we saw and afterwards smelling some lilacs (my favorite)

Even though I was pushing 50+ pounds I had one of my quickest paces. Though this stroller really isn't meant for running. The wheels kept locking. It is really meant for off road like ball fields and such. A running stroller is a lot of money that I just don't have. (I have kept on eye at garage sales too. People want the same amount for a new one or they need so many repairs that make them cost as much as a new one)

My two boys

These were taken after my oldest's baseball game. Mj loved it and didn't want to get down. It was such a sweet moment

May the 4th

Be with you. =]. 

My squares are turning into my current project. With all the running around and little sleep they are easy to do and help keep me calm. The knitting doesn't always help keep me calm but it helps I think. Anyway here are the new ones
I am using my Star Wars lunch box to hold the finished squares

And I am using my TARDIS lunch box to carry the little balls with me when I am out :)
