new stuff. and more

I just finished weaving in tons of ends for this blanket. I usually weave them in as I go, but these stitches were too far apart and it just didn't work that way. I hope my niece likes it. It is big enough for my queen bed, just to the edges. It is the kitties in a row pattern from Bev's Country Cottage, but I made it bigger to be for an adult. Jessica loves Kitties, so that is why I chose this pattern. I sure hope she likes it. I love it. I also am sending some slipper bedsox to my sis and my little niece too. My dad finally got his Serenity Prayer blanket, got it on his anniversary, so that made it special timing too. tomorrow is Travis' 15th birthday. It seems like just yesterday, man does time fly.

New stuff and what I have been up to

Good afternoon everyone. I have been sick as well as trying to spend more time with my family and not so much time on the puter. I have been knitting and crocheting on something almost every day. It has been super cold here in Colorado, so I have been making more slipper sox. I think they will be good add on gifts for Christmas. I have made 5 pair of adult size and one pair of kid size. I am working on some more now. I am also working on a couple blankets. One is a graph afghan for baby in Broncos theme that I am doing in Tunisian crochet. I am also making one for my niece Jessica. I hope to finish it soon. It is 53 inches long now, but she is tall, so I have a way to go. I am in no way ready for Christmas yet. heck, I still have things to mail and cards to finish filling out. I have been busy though with both knitting and crocheting as much as I can fit into my boring schedule.
