This was more time consuming than I imagined! The antler nubs and nose are knit on size one dpns using sock yarn.

It's been busy with work and handling pups who are not used to "winter" but I can still knit here and there. Socks are such portable projects and that might explain why I'm knitting so many pairs right now. She is going to love these socks!

Our weather turned chilly (I know but 60 degrees is chilly for us!!) so tall baby Grandson got to wear two sweaters in size 2! We Texans aren't used to wearing many clothes and he still balks at shoes and socks. I had to sneak the hat on when he was distracted by puppy!

Right now, I'm totally hooked on socks for myself and for family members. Once I wore hand knit socks, my feet will tolerate only hand knit ones. Forget about cheap store bought socks! Yes, I'm so spoiled. Here are socks for Kristine who helped track her baby son while we shopped at Yarns 2 Ewe in Houston.

As if I don't already have about twelve projects started........... I cast on my scarf to go with the fingerless mitts. I love this yarn, and will love the scarf. However, it's going to go slowly with all the yarn overs. Reading while knitting on this, or even talking with hubby in the evenings will be asking for mistakes to happen. So, I'll knit when alone!

Daughter will celebrate a birthday in late December so I'm working on her gift early. Time tends to get away fast and hopefully I'll be more organized this year. I like this yarn and LOVE the way this yarn is striping! It's fun and funky and I do think she'll enjoy wearing these.
It's like having a newborn! This puppy is constant................she gets into things, grabs yarn and stuffed display toys and eyes my dolls hungrily. She's always busy and getting into things, much like a crawling infant. Today I gave her one of grandson's bath toys, a duck, until we had a chance to buy a new toy. Here she is having a grand time.

My pumpkin growing in our garden just didn't happen this year. First of all, we had a serious drought in South Texas with temperatures above 110 degrees for more than twenty consecutive days. Then, we adopted cute little Roxy, a puppy, and she has pulled the pumpkin vine every which way. Today, we went to the nearby Pumpkin Patch and selected a very nice, and very large pumpkin.
