Tree And Presents

Our Tennessee Christmas tree, along with baby girl.
And, one of the presents I ordered for the boys. Well, mainly Tennessee because Knoxville's attention span isn't very long. One minute its dinosaurs and the next it is food. Lol. Tennessee wants to read bedtime stories to his daddy. Too cute. A lady from church told me about the book. Said she used it with her daughter who is now a teacher and uses it.

Been A While

Baby girl on her first Thanksgiving!

So...I have finished everything for everyone except I am about to start on a crochet last name doily for a friend. It will take some time but it will also be a nice little chunk of money. Hey every little bit helps around Christmas season.

Baby Squishy Face :-)

Love Memphis' squishy face. Tennessee used to make the same face when he was little. Love my babies!

Anyway, I am working on a list of things people are asking me to make for them. Its not too long, so I should have it all completed soon... Wristwarmers, lots of beanies big and tiny, a blanket, a can cozy...There's more but I can't remember them now. Hope to make and sell some things to help out with money for Christmas gifts. Its going decent so far.

Knitted cozy

I came up with this because I felt like knitting and wanted something easy.
It is Caron Rhapsody in an olive color. Size 8 bamboo straights. (I Didn't feel like working on dpns.)

C.O.36. And did a 3x3 rib for 3 rows. Then, I knitted each row until it was almost the size I wanted. I then did 3 rows of 3x3 rib again.
Next was a purl row and then the decreasing.

Cut yarn leaving a long tail for sewing. Thread needle and then thread thru remaining loops on knitting needle. Pull tight and then work across the bottom and up the side sewing the two sides together. F.O. And weave in ends.

A Bit of Knitting.

Pic: Memphis after a nap. Lol. :-)

Ok, I have started on the #88 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Washcloth/dishcloth. The pattern is on Ravelry, so you need an account to see it...I am planning on keeping it a secret until Christmas for the hubby. But, I know if it turns out good, I will probably give it to him early.
I'm also working on a jacket type thingy with some soft homespun-like yarn from Hobby Lobby. I have started it 2x before but kept running out of yarn at the end. So I am making it shorter in hopes of having enough to add some sleeves.
Pix soon.
