Scarf Progress

I'm having to pay attention, unlike doll sweaters and socks and many other projects, but am loving this pattern. It is well written and going quicker than I thought. Two pics will show how pretty the result will be.

Mitts Are Waiting for Scarf

I knit the mitts in early August before hubby and I attended the annual conference in Madison. Yes, it was so chilly there that I wore them!

Cast On Leaves Scarf

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!

Puppy Wins!

Okay, I got tired of the whining and let Roxy go outside to play in the rain.

Stormy Weather

It's a horrible day with thunder and lots of blowing rain! I'm trying to knit and Roxy is whining from window to door, begging to go outside. She is totally FEARLESS!

Roxy Goes for a Ride in Thing

This fearless puppy is game for everything!

Birthday Socks

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.

Puppy, Roxy, is Busy

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.

Puppy Glombs the Human

Roxy, our puppy, is similar to elementary students. She, like the little kids, loves to glomb onto the adult!

Sniffing the Pumpkin

Roxy likes new things!

Puppy Inspects the Pumpkin

This is a very curious puppy. She loves new things, and she LOVES to glomb onto her humans!

Pumpkin Patch

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.

Birthday for Baby

Baby LOVED the cake! This was the first time he had refined sugar and yes, he loved it!!

Baby Grandson Turns One!

We refurbished the wagon, then I knit a wagon sized blanket, and when the family came to visit, we enjoyed all the hard work! Baby is now one!!

Still Knitting

It's been busy with work, knitting Christmas presents (socks), and knitting and sewing doll clothes to sell. Here are some sweater and socks sets.
