Well, it's Christmas time here in Colorado. Today we got about 8 inches overnight, so the car was stuck. So, I didn't get to deliver a couple hats I made for a friend. Hopefully tomorrow.

Been in a slump, but finished a few things

I have knit 26 pairs of socks this year so far, that counts infant socks, and I have 4 pair that are only 1/2 done, and more and more that I want done. lol I made a cardigan for a lady at the race track for her new grandbaby. She has twin grandbabies and they are adorable. They were preemies and are still very small so the cardi swims on her. I will ask permission before I post the pic she gave me. Don't want to make anyone mad.
I also finally had the time to finish the blanket I started in February for Don and I. It is knit in the Feather and Fan Stitch, and it is warm and cozy. I wish I would of made it a little longer, but it was set aside for so long cause I have been making socks and other stuff. Needless to say at least the dogs seem to like it. Trixie was bundled up in the blanket all day.

We got to see My guy Kenny Rogers ( I can't believe he has 7 yr old twins at 73)

I am knitting a new sock in another competition on Ravelry called Tour-de-Sock. We are on the 2nd of 6 socks. the first 2 have really been challenging to say the least. I have just started the 2nd one, so no photo of it yet. But I have been doing little projects in the meantime. I know I don't update my blog as often as I used to, but there are lots of new things in my Ravelry projects page.
I also got to go and see Kenny Rogers last Saturday. The races were rained out so there was no excuse not to go. lol. We drove to wonderful Greeley, CO and saw him at the Union Colony Civic Center. I hadn't seen him in about 17 years, so it was a treat to me and same gorgeous man and voice.

more pics from South Dakota and Travis Tritt

What I have been up to. Sept already???

Howdy y'all. Well, my sweetie took me to see my baby Travis Tritt. We went all the way to South Dakota to a new place called Deadwood Mountain Grand Casino/Event center. It was really pretty there, and being that it was the week right before Sturgis started, lots of bikers. I also have been up to the normal, knitting and crocheting, and we moved, got all our stuff over here, just not unpacked.
