omy... it's Thanksgiving!!

 I know it has been so long since my last post. There are a few reasons. First is that I just haven't been doing that much knitting. As you can see from the picture of Jayden's sweater.. the knitting is finished and the zipper is pinned in ready for me to sew it in. It's been like that for  a few days now. I did start some slippers for my daughter a week ago and they are almost finished except for the edging and little straps. She will be having her second child this coming Tuesday and wanted me to make them for her to wear in the hospital. There will be time to work on these today.
As you know I work in retail and this is our busy season.. extra days of work = less days for knitting. I really like my job. I get to display all the accessories and handbags in the store. Here is a little sneak peek .. shhhh.. 
Happy Thanksgiving to all that read this blog. Thanks for looking and have a great holiday. (^_^)

craftings away...!!

 Today is a day of crafting. Trying to get stuff finished for the etsy shop and finish up that sweater.. It's name is now "that sweater". I'm on the last 4 rows of the sleeve and hope to add the front edging and baste in the zipper sometime today!

almost there!!

 Little by little I've been getting back into the swing of things. A while ago I had been working of some projects that will end up in my Esty shop and some how I haven't worked on them for a few weeks including my knitting. Today I finally made some progress on both and hopefully will finish them soon. I have all these wonderful creative ideas in my head and no time to produce them. Sometime I think I need to be 3 people to get everything done.. including blogging. This is like.. a minute to blog.. finish up projects and run to the store.. work on more projects later etc.  There are only 10 rows left of the last sleeve on Jayden's sweater. Man I hope I can finish this tonight. Friday I have to run to Joann's Fabric for the zipper and my goal is to have all the knitting completed before then. Goals are good. (^_^)

sleepy boy..

 Someone was really tired and fell asleep while watching a show. I couldn't resist taking a picture. At the same time I was working on finishing his sweater. For some reason I have been just inching my way through this sweater which should have been finished already. After my family visited it seems I haven't really sat down to knit. I guess I went on a little knitting vacation too. This is not the time of year that I should be going on a knitting vacation though... it's time to get the holiday knitting finished. I hopefully will get started after I finish this sweater because my list is rather ambitious. Anyway I'm on the last sleeve and all that is left is the 2 from edges and sewing in a zipper. Our Florida weather decided to change all at once from near 90 to the 60's and colder at night and Jayden could use this nice warm sweater. I have off today and plan to put some time into it.
 Maybe it was from all the excitement of going to the Harry Potter Theme park and Epcots food and wine festival.


 Or maybe from having all the little ones here.
 Or the change in seasons.. isn't Hagrids house awesome!! I love the change in seasons here... cooler weather is so welcome after all the months of hot sticky weather. Even the sky looks prettier. Time to do some serious knitting. Or maybe it's time to set up the knitting machine. 0.0
