The dog days are over

28 Mar

Well, just what I said wouldn’t happen, happened. Of course… I said I would be posting much more frequently and it’s been at least a week or two since my last post.

I’ve been knitting here and there. I made a cute lacy scarf for my 4 year old sons “girlfriend”. Too early, I know, I thought the same thing. There is a pic of the finished product,


I ordered my yarn from knit picks (it shipped today!!!!! Ahhhh!) and the I have to buy my pattern. I’m making my very first sweater. I’m going to adjust to make the sleeves longer and the waist longer so It will be a nice spring tunic or a throw-over-your-bathing-suit-bc-it’s-windy sweater for the beach. I’m not a fan of paying for patterns,mainly bc I’m so cheap however, this pattern, being $8, is great because I can follow along with her YouTube video set for this sweater. Since it is my first adult sweater, I think that’s important. Here is the sweater pattern and thePima cotton yarnI chose. What do u think? I’m not sure if the color comes up on the link, but I got the grey color (winter, or whisper or something) In the interim of waiting for that, I started a baby sweater with stashed Bernat baby jacquards floral yarn I had. Here is what the beginning looks like. (Sidenote, I love my dreamz needles)


The family from Canada is coming in Friday night (staying until Easter night)…I am So excited to see everyone. We didn’t go up to visit for Christmas this year, so I’m anxiously awaiting this arrival. 🙂


Oh and I made homemade augratin potatoes the other night. Omg de-lic!!! One of my favorite recipes ever. Recipe-I added lots of cheese to mine. read reviews


They call him “PD”

13 Mar

The view from my dining room table is a straight shot to my neighbor across the street, and I can’t stop watching.  We call him “PD” (inside joke from last Fourth of July) due to…well, I will save that for another day.

With my boy on my lap as I type up my blog today, I think of how to add a few menus to the top of my blog.  I’m thinking: helpful knitting videos, patterns that I have completed and my favorite reciepes.  


So excited I have 65  email followers.  Jumped up a lot since last night. Thanks you guys!!
