 I finally got around to listing new items in my esty shop. It's TheHoboKnitShop if you didn't already know. Some lovely little fiber batts and fabric knot necklaces were added. Take a look. Run little hobo!! (^_^)

a fast update

 We have been having a bit of a cold spell down in sunny Florida. All that knitting paid off.. the grand kiddies are nice and cozy.
 A fast update on the holiday knitting. At this point everyone will be receiving smaller knit items.. hats, mittens, scarves and worsted socks. The hat is for Abby and since no one was interested in purchasing this pretty yarn from my etsy shop, I decided it would make a nice warm earflap hat for her. The above picture is a bramble cowl. Not sure if I like the tweed yarn. I have a solid color that I might use instead. I'm still deciding which to use. I think it's time for Santa's little helper.. The KNitting Machine!!

Time to get knitting

 Can you believe that I finally finished this sweater. I can't. I don't know what took me so long. Anyway it is finished and it fits him well. Now on to the next projects. Let me see ... my son wants socks.. the other one lost all his hats.. I need to crochet a sweater for Abby.. a vest for Cameron.. and some wee little socks for Micah. Can I do it!!.. I don't know but I'm going to start today. Good thing the weather here has turned cold. It was only in the 30's last night. That is really cold for Florida. I need to work on a big project to keep my lap warm. I like how knitting keeps my hands warm and as I knit my project is nice and warm from my hands. 

I whipped up this little crochet hook case as a door prize for my knitting group Christmas party. If there is time I will make a few to sell in my esty shop.
Time to get knitting.. see you again soon.. (o_~)

A new baby..

 I finally finished these slippers for my daughter last night and brought them to the hospital today so she could wear them. She became a mommy again yesterday morning. She gave birth to a little boy, Micah Eli, 8 lbs, 20" long. The new nursery is all ready and waiting his arrival. Both mom and baby are healthy and recovering quickly and will hopefully be home some time tomorrow.
