Hello There

Really I have no clue what I do all day that keeps me from blogging...

Here is an owl dish cloth I finished last week...

owl dish cloth

I made 2 of them from the same ball of cotton. I really like this pattern, that and I have a thing for owls. I'm not sure if I'll keep these or give them as a gift...

Here are the ghosts I made for the baby shower.
Ghosts for baby shower favors

I found the pattern on etsy it also came with a cute little witch and owl that I hope to make before the baby comes.

I've also finished a pair of baby socks and a hat for Spawn...didn't get pictures of them yet.

I'm working on a felted basket to put her toys in and a pair of socks for Gooey. I'd like to finished DH's green socks too.

The baby shower was super fun. I have almost everything we need now and I'm freaking out less. Her room is almost done, I'm hoping DH will finish it this weekend. We just have to put a light fixture in, the door knob back, take out the ac, and a few other little things. I still feel a little unorganized. I have to get things to there places and out of her room. You know like the bath stuff in the bathroom, bottles out, etc. Well I better get busy :)

A blog post

oh oh oh I finished something!

Gooey's socks
Last weekend Gooey tried on her hand knit socks that I made her last year...none of them fit, she cried....so I made her these.....I have to make her a new pair of Gooey's in that same yarn as last year. I'm glad I still have tons left.

I've been working on MS4, I'm still on clue 1 (only 1 row to go) I've just wanted to get that pair of socks done. I can't wait to start on the 2nd clue! I've also signed up for the HMS08. Why I have no clue....it's not like I'm going to beable to get it done by the time Spawn is here. Her patterns are sooooo pretty!

I think Spawn is trying to break out early... I need to knit her a hat......OMFG I've got so much stuff to get done before she gets here...We still need to get tons of baby crap. My sister is having a Halloween baby shower for me on the 28th so that should help. I'll have to try to remember to get pictures, i think people are going to dress up too. We still have to get a light fixture and blinds for the windows. The crib needs to be put together oh and I need a mattress. I want to shampoo the carpets and clean the play room.....ahhhhhhh ok I'm going to stop now before i get myself all stressed out.

It's September already?

ahhh where did the summer go?

OH check this out...
Gooey's sweater
I've been knitting... this it the Daisy Cardigan I used Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk DK that I had in my stash...I think I got it at Webs last year on sale. Hell every 5yo needs a handwash only silk and alpaca sweater...right. btw it's really cute on...not like she'd keep in it on long enough this weekend for me to get a picture.

I also got around to washing the last of the Baby Doll fleeces from last year...I really didn't want them to go on cleaned for another 8mo...this was the only wool I washed this year...I missed it! I LOVE the smell of raw wool!!!!

I'm working on another sweater for Gooey, Polkadot. I'm using some kettle dyed wool I frogged from a thrift store sweater...Hopeful it works out. For some reason I feel the need to knit for Gooey and not Spawn. I guess Spawn will grow out of everything so quick, and well Gooey really gets a kick out of picking out yarn and patterns for herself. I've also been working on a dish cloth for the monthly kal...you get like 8 lines a day and by the end of the week you get a finished dish cloth. Pretty cool. I also REALLY need to swatch for MS4...I want to keep out this year, or at least try! I've really enjoyed knitting from my stash...but I do need to do something with all that sock yarn I have....I need to start knitting socks again.

Oh this week would of been Gooey's first week of school. Well, after going back and forth for a month we are going to homeschool. It was a really hard choice, but I'm sure we made the right one for her. At least for this year.

Well thats all I've got for now....later
