I decided to change the look of the blog because it's been TWO YEARS since I started blogging. I'm having a contest for this skein of Yarn Pirate June Bug Yarn. In order to be entered into the drawing, donate $20 or more to your local animal shelter and post about it on your blog, then leave me a comment. If you don't have a blog, then just let me know in the comments that you donated. I'd like to have the donations reach at least $100 dollars, so pass the word along to other knitters and friends. The contest will be open until November 10th at 6:00 pm. central standard time.
FINISHED KNITTED OBJECTS....for real!!!!!
Yes, I finally have some knitting to show. I finished Tom's felted slippers and a scarf. I am currently working on making mittens for Maggie's friends, a baby sweater, and some socks.
I used Cascade 220 for the slippers and the scarf was made from Wollmeise in the Paul color way.
It's been a busy month. Maggie is done with volleyball, attended Memorial's homecoming, and is in kickball tournament for a friends dad who has cancer. The tournament is part of a benefit to raise money for his cancer treatment. Grant has his permit now and that is a little nerve wracking. Patrick is adjusting to middle school and has really improved his grades.
Maggie in her homecoming dress. Maggie dressed up as Madonna for a Halloween party.
I took a spinning class the other night at The Yellow Dog. I also took a class on dying yarn.
I'll try to post more often. Have a good weekend and happy knitting!
